    Oh dear, someone forgetting how the economy works.

    Paying staff and making reasonable profit could be accomplished without such a premium on those products. Businesses nowadays seek maximum profit. You sell stuff for the price people are likely to pay, not the price that will cover your expenses. And in most businesses (and Nintendo specifically) there's a lot of space between what their current business reports suggest and them not being able to feed their staff. Nintendo would neither die from selling their stuff for less profit nor would they die from cheaper alternatives. It's just that enough people still believe in them only having good intentions (or in the quality of their products at least). Neoliberalism sadly has nothing to do with good intentions.

    Just tell Nintendo that Texas Court was from Fire Emblem and they'll be added to the DLC Pack 3

    It's only downhill from there, if they do, they are probably mighty stupid.

    PS Move needs an upgrade. It has been long enough.
    The only court I want to see, is the one from Phoenix Wright.

    Was this a patent troll? Such things typically being defined as a company that seldom, if ever, invents anything and just seeks a quick settlement, usually from easy marks but big company and little payoff is also an option, for either bought in or worthless patents.

    I have not looked at the patent (or if I have it has not been since the original verdict hit and I can't remember it) and can be bothered right now so can't say whether I find it vague or not (I find a lot of US patents in general something of a farce -- obviousness and prior art seems an alien concept there) but most such trolls don't take it all the way to appeals courts.

    These courts cases become silly everyday, why don't Nintendo just make a new game called "court battle"? It will be interesting, and then the court will fire a case against them.

    Ok I'm going to sleep.

    So basically nintendo can buy out another judge to over rule when they lose.

    Nintendo should focus on gaming and console that trying to find ways to print money taking people to court.

    Yep, years ago I needed a few more wiimotes and bought two knockoff "motion plus" versions. They work, but the battery life is dismal. They seem to last only 20% as long as real wiimotes. Then, one of them broke completely. I learned my lesson and just bought the official wii motion plus add-on attachments (for cheap) and called it good. :)
