I knew this was gonna happen. i just had that "feeling" the whole time! -_-. just pay the guy one huge lump sum of money and move on. i'm not looking forward at all to losing 3D in future consoles and games over some idiot.


Hell Nintendo will make that money back with Pokemon X/Y

So your saying Nintendo deserves to lose a ton of money in court because you dislike 3D and you also cannot spell laugh correctly?

Wow, looks like it's very easy to pretend a big company is stealing from you and win. Shameless.

It's pretty disgusting how people sue each other in the video game industry over so many things. I remember hearing about the red cross wasting its donated money sueing video game companies for improper use of the, you guessed it, red cross. Then there's games like Maniac Mansion and EarthBound, which people use an excuse of potential lawsuit to stop them from being released.

Look at the music industry. All these idiotic artists do these days is steal songs, call it "sampling", and pass it off as something new, and make billions. If that's okay, then they shouldn't have to replace the word "yo-yo" with "star" in Star Tropics to release it on virtual console.

Such an idiotic world we live in. Everybody wants something for nothing, and crap like this just hinders progress in the industry. No wonder there's fewer and fewer good games getting published all the time. They have to waste their money on people who want a piece of the action because they used a name in their game...or in this case, similar technology.

Imagine the creativity that could go into games if they didn't have to be so damn careful?

Shark prosecutor, and a lawsuit being heard in his part of the sea. Pretty much sounds like a done deal to me. I wonder how much of that $30 is Joe Diamante's cut. Probably more than 24K.

It's a history trend these days. Back then, if you wanted to get your message across, you start a war and kill a bunch of people, then it evolved to going on strikes and riots, and now today you just sit on your ass and sue anything and everything you can find a reason to do so.

Well, then the next step is to appeal.


Yep. And then the court will find that Nintendo has done no wrong and overturn the previous guilty ruling.

Simply put, this case isn't over until the appeal is over.

Seems like Nintendo is getting sued for every new console they spit out and lose them. The world has it out for Nintendo, while Sony is making Nintendo rip offs a few years later that no one really cares...

*cough*theMoveandPlaystationAllStars*cough*


The Move was first shown in 2004 and PS All Stars was conceived in early 1998.

Nintendo shouldn't have lost that case to begin with. The guy sounds like a hack.
