New lawsuit could force Nintendo to stop selling Wii in the US


“Son of a submariner!”

That’s what we imagine a huge nerd working at Nintendo said when he learned about a lawsuit from Hillcrest Labs. The lawsuit contends that Nintendo is infringing on four of Hillcrest’s patents, three of which are in some way related to the Wii. Worst case scenario, Nintendo would have to stop selling the Wii in the U.S. until it fixes the offending patents.

Yeah, this lawsuit will hold our attention a little longer than most, I bet.
