    Kotaku Article I know there are a few more sites... just google Nintendo sues Nyko or something.
    Better get some of those Kama Wireless Nunchucks now!

    Probably means that Nintendo will be coming out with them soon, which is a good thing.

    It better be cheaper if Nintendo makes it... Aren't the Kama like 30 or 40 USD or something? But then again, the Official Nunchucks are only 20 USD...

    Maybe Nintendo has license on its power button design or hexagonal analog stick base or something.
    Oh wait, I know. It just hurts sales of nunchuck included software sales?

    Somehow I kinda saw this coming when I stepped into the electronics section of Wal-Mart last week.

    After this, what do you think'll become of those $20 adapters at DX?

    My girlfriend said: "Nintendo should have announced wireless nunchuck earlier with a better design instead of sueing a third party controller maker"

    Exactly what I think. Personally wireless doesn't add much though.

    Kinda bulky, though, you'd be better off buying a Nyko Nunchuk before they get pulled from the shelves.

    I would say make the cable long enough to fully stretch both arms and strap that cable to your body.

    Nintendo is getting worse in their paranoia.
    Seriously, its a thrid party controller. They're supposed to look simular.

    Nintendo's probly just upset that they made something better than their own.
    Nintendo will make fools of them selves if they dont drop it.
    Besides, no ones really that interested in the thing that much anyway.
    It wouldnt really hurt to let it be sold.

    Still, back in the older gaming days, how many third party controllers looked very close to the origonals? Answer: just about all of them.
    Nintendo is being greedy and turning into a bully.
    Or moreso than usual anyway.

    Agreed! I don't understand, given the sheer number of them that have been on sale in the past I didn't think there was anything wrong with manufacturing a third party controller. Unless those companies had to get permission first. I don't know how it works.

    Turn around...
    They should sue Nyko for selling shit. I have bought three products by Nyko, I brought them all back.
