It'll probably get thrown out by some magical corporate loophole. I don't think Microsoft would give up that easily, even if the Xbox 360 is on the tail end of its lifespan.
But I already got a Xbox 360 so I don't give a shit, as long as they keep supporting it.
Won't ever happen, just look at the Galaxy tab ban in Europe, it's something that lasts for something like a week max, then somehow magically finds its way out (lolbribes).
I wonder how many people had an orgasm after reading the title.
That gif? Well anyways this is interesting but really I doubt Micro$oft will let this one slide, they're going to inevitably find a way to get the potential cease and desist undone.
they've sold enough, they dont need to worry even. and by the time this is going to be truly passed, 720.
why do we care about this anyways?? 360 is dead
Won't actually happen. Even if it did, the 360 is already far too widely spread for it to actually be effective. Dozens of shops in every US city will have stock of 360s. They couldn't possibly pull every one. And then there's on line stores etc. At this point, the product is far too well established for it to be banned. Despite all this, it won't actually happen, because Microsoft is a huge corporation. They'll pay off Motorola or let Motorola use some of their patents or something. There are never any true consequences for large corporations in today's corrupt society. [/rant]
Dead? Do I need to mention the 360 exclusives being released this year?
The Xbox 360 is far from dead, it has at least this year and the next year in its life span.
Lawsuits, lawsuits everywhere.
Inb4 Apple joins the party with their patents.
Yeah, that's not going to happen. This judge is crazy.
The 360 is dying anyways, it's about time Microsoft came up with something new - perhaps this ludicrous judge will be a motor of progress seeing that next generation games somehow isn't. I mean, seriously - Skyrim shouldn't even work on this setup and somehow it does, kudos Bethesda.
I think the Judge just Red Ringed Microsoft's entire 360 division.
Anyway, I can't see this happening, or at least, lasting very long. Microsoft has a lot of clout and cash to throw around for appealing this decision.
Ah, screw it.
R.I.P XBOX 360
Like others have said, I seriously doubt that it will be banned successfully. Despite it being at the end of it's life-span, it is far from dead. Games are still being released, right?
Companies always rush to settle, not face their enemies in court.
something like this happened with the ps3 in europe. it was a patent infringement by LG in which they were seeking a ban of ps3 imports. it didn't last very long though. ownership is obsolete for companies as well as customers.
I recommend a ban on air because it infringes on our ability to die from suffocation.
Seriously, what the fuck.
I see large out of courst settlements.
Stuff like this really needs to stop. If there's a bloody patent issue call it up when the product FIRST LAUNCHES! Not a year or so in when its made some money you can claim back! Its complete bullshit that companies can pull stunts like this.
