They will never give up. Just ask that guy from Arizona or New Mexico that ran that popular ROM site. He got his ass handed to him by Nintendo's lawyers.

If they're that effective then shouldn't Nintendo has used them against Gamevice over their Joycon patent trolling?

I couldn't find any news that Gamevice won a case against Nintendo or that the lawsuit was withdrawn due to a settlement between Gamevice and Nintendo.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Only recent major cases Nintendo lost were the 3DS screen (which they apparently later won in appeals court and higher court) and the Philips Wiimote technology case.  I'm still pissed at Philips to this day.  Sometimes I have to buy products made by them though...  They have the market cornered on 8' fluorescent tubes.

Maybe they are waiting for Mario Kart Tour to drop on mobile or they don't view them as any threat.  Didn't that Gamevice have some crappy "bridge" linking the controllers.  Anyways, maybe people in other countries use them but I have never seen anyone put a controller around their phone or use dedicated controllers while playing their phone in public. 

Neither have I. Gamevice's products are crap anyway.

I check for it from time to time but still nothing new.

Wait, Philips won that case? How?

Mission Accomplished!

Piracy has been defeated!

Maybe they'll lay off of rom sites, now.



Damn, Mario was pissed.

Don't hold your breath. They still don't know how the internet works.

Noone followed it anyway, so why bother keeping it up?

You mean the piracy policies?

Yep.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Does that mean they finally solved piracy?
