The federal appeals court has confirmed Nintendo’s win in a patent infringement case brought at the International Trade Commission by Creative Kingdoms. Creative Kingdoms asked the ITC to block importation of Wii U and Wii consoles, but it was reaffirmed that the company’s patents are invalid and should not have been issued. This is because Creative Kingdoms tried to claim more than it invented.
Richard Medway, Nintendo of America’s vice president and deputy general counsel, said of today’s news:
“We are pleased with the court’s determination. Nintendo’s track record demonstrates that we vigorously defend patent lawsuits, particularly when the patents are being stretched beyond the inventors’ ideas. Nintendo continues to develop unique and innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others.”
iNiS made two Ouendan for the DS back in the day. Supposedly, there were plans to create a third entry for Wii.
Unseen64’s Liam Robertson was in communication with “a very trusted source”, who spoke with iNiS’ president and was informed about the company’s intentions to bring Ouendan to Wii. It’s unclear why those plans never materialized. Robertson hopes to learn more about the situation in the future.
So, take this for what it is, but it sounds like iNiS was trying to make a third Ouendan game for Wii a few years ago.
Nintendo has a few refurbished Wii games available for purchase on its website. The lineup includes New Play Control! Pikmin, Punch-Out!!, and Excitebots.
You can find the full lineup of refurbished games here. Some may seem a bit pricey and you’ll need to throw in another $5 for shipping, though quite a few of these titles like Punch-Out!! aren’t being sold at most stores at this point.
Best Buy will be running a few Nintendo offers in its stores on Sunday and Monday. By using the coupons below, you can save $5 on any Wii U/3DS game as well as $50 on the 3DS XL. Additionally, you can nab a Wii U/Wii/3DS accessory for 10 percent off.
Here’s all of the Best Buy news straight from Miiverse:
Earlier this year Dutch electronics company Phillips, filed a lawsuit against Nintendo for what they felt was a patent infringement related to their patent on “Virtual Body Control Device” as well as “User Interface System Based on Pointing Device.
Initially Phillips was asking for not only monetary compensation but also a ban on selling the Wii and Wii U.
Then in June in the UK High courts, Phillips won an early victory with Nintendo set to appeal.
Now today we learn that the two companies have now reached an agreement with Nintendo releasing this statement:
Nintendo today announced that it has entered into a global patent license agreement with Royal Philips (NYSE:PHG, AEX: PHIA). As part of the agreement, Nintendo and Philips will cross license portions of each company’s patent portfolio. This agreement ends patent invalidity proceedings brought against Philips by Nintendo in multiple countries, as well as patent infringement proceedings brought by Philips against Nintendo.
“We are pleased to have reached agreement with Philips, as it demonstrates that both companies recognize the importance of intellectual property rights,” said Martina Franke, European General Counsel of Nintendo of Europe. “Nintendo has a substantial IP portfolio and a long history of developing innovative products while respecting valid intellectual property rights of others.”
Financial details and other terms of the license agreement will not be disclosed.
The Collective, Inc. – in partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive – was once working on Dirty Harry/Dirty Harry Extreme. What we didn’t know is that separate versions were planned for Nintendo systems several years ago.
Unseen64 reports that Sensory Sweep Studios was developing Dirty Harry for Wii, DS, PS2, and PC. While the Wii version was never put into full production, it would have been an “up-port” of the PS2 release with IR pointer aiming and motion control for melee attacks. The DS version was intended to be built from the ground up.
