In developing its 3DS portable console, Nintendo infringed on a glasses-free 3D patent owned by a former Sony employee. That's according to a New York federal jury, which earlier today hit Nintendo with $30.2 million in damages. The patent in question granted in 2008 pertains to viewing 3D content without a need for specialized glasses, which is a major selling point of the 3DS. Seijiro Tomita (who spent 30 years at Sony according to the court complaint) sued Nintendo in 2011 for infringing on his invention, claiming that he'd met with the gaming manufacturer in 2003 to discuss the technology. In its defense, Nintendo's attorney argued that Tomita was just one of several 3D purveyors it was in contact with at the time and that the 3D implementation in the portable device avoided key aspects of his patent.

Ultimately the jury sided with Tomita and awarded him the compensatory damages. $30.2 million isn't exactly going to bankrupt Nintendo, and the case is unlikely to have any long-term consequences, but it's still an embarrassing legal defeat for the gaming industry giant.

It is fairly amusing that the claim comes from a former Sony employee, but either way, this won't really affect Nintendo in the long run. Thoughts, System Wars?

good. now i can sue that guy for these damn seizures i have been getting since i saw 3d on the 3ds.

nintendo doesn't copy, this is unpossible.

i refuse to believe it.

This is like the fourth person to sue Nintendo for infringing on a glasses-free 3D patent.

Nintendo was found not guilty in all the other cases.

point is his first response was akin to damage control, not about the news 'nintendo's guilty of infringing' itself.

Pointing out that you are a idiot in thinking i care if a company gets sued or not? Well thats not name calling thats pointing out the obvious.

Oh wow i have a 3DS and a WiiU. I also own a Xbox 360 also.... point being? Because i'm currently getting use out of my WiiU and been getting games at discounted prices brand new in comparison to what they cost on 360 like batman for £25 with free DLC, Assassin Creed 3 for £25 and Tekken Tag 2 with all the DLC on 360 version including extra content for £28... Its called being smart which you'd not understand. I also have a picture which i posted of my 360 / 3DS aswell looming around here just ready to own you that little bit more.

I was wrong about one thing. No biggie. their was a article on GS about nintendo being sued by ex-sony employee last week which i assumed was just the same article.

So one guy who used to work at Sony and approached Nintendo over a decade ago was given the title of "I invented glasses free 3D", and got $30 million from Nintendo for using his idea. This is a clear victory for Sony if I have ever seen one.

3 other people tried to sue Nintendo claiming the same thing and they lost. This is the first person to sue Nintendo for the same thing as the others that won the case.

That makes no sense as i owned my 360 previous to my WiiU. WiiU has been terrible which i've admitted several times and main reason i brought it was for MH TRI but i shouldnt need to justify my actions or how i spend my cash to idiots like yourself who are merely trolling.

Sureee you got thoee games cheaper including free DLC.... lol, I just call that flamebaiting. I'm mad because i was the first person to post in a topic? RIGHHHTTT LMAO... makes total sense. I must be a terrible Fanboy when i can admit the flaws of a console and since 1990 have always owned multiple consoles unlike Fanboys on here who'd eat crap off a shovel.

You are a terrible Troll.

It'd be a clear victory for Sony if they were awarded the 30 million. 

 

From Nintendo's perspective, 30 million is an affordable loss.  But it's great news for the employee.

 

Nintendo should've done the honest thing and licensed his technology in the first place.

Agreed. Nintendo will most likely appeal it. This case should've never been against Nintendo in the first place. He should've taken it up with Sharp instead.

i did get those games for 20 new (tekken tag2, batman ac, ac3), during holiday sales at retail. i can even sell them if I want, unlike digital ripoff console copies of games. if you think buying digital copies for a slight discount is a deal, you dont shop right. every multiplat on wii u retail ive seen cheapr on other machines at some point (pc, 360, ps3), every single one so far.

either way, your first post was fail (u confused act of suing with actual news of him winning lawsuit), but glad you admitted it so lets move on.

you came off as scerred of bad nintendo news. nintendo guilty of infringing, big deal. it's only big deal to nintendo & butthurt sheep.

I have hard copies but thanks for not knowing.  Next.....   I can even show you just for some more ownage.  Have you included DLC to those games like Batman AC like the Revenge of harley quinn DLC ?  Noooo... Hahaha!!!  What a muppet.  Tekken Tag 2 has Extra content and cost less here in UK than on 360 and also AC3 was £25 2 weeks ago at Smyths.  20 what exactly?!  Potatoes ? Animal Skins? Fat women ?  

 

I admitted before you jumped onto to the self proclaimed ownage and even said "i apoligies" to the Topic Creator.  You attempted to make a big deal of it and looked stupid when attempting it.  

 

I was scarred of what exactly  I dont have stocks in Nintendo like i said previously and it doesnt directly or indirectly affect me in any possible way but you wanted to troll.  Be smart and think for a while rather than thinking people are all like yourself who cry about trivial information.

 

Yes a terrible troll as i already admitted to being wrong previously and obliterated all your arguments. Sadly you had to carry on.

 

And there is my 360 and Wii which i sold due to it collecting dust.  More ownage towards you. Its on my FB page which im logged onto so i didnt put much effort into finding it on out.

405559_10150578431164493_1436864545_n.jp

I can also add a pic of my WiiU and my hard copies of games and also my 3DS just to own you that incy bit more.  Hitting a nerve?  I'd say its correcting your stupidity more so than hitting a nerve.

More patent wars. Oh well, glad the guy who created the technology is getting due credit, and as for Nintendo, the 3D on the 3DS doesn't even matter in the long run, that handheld is all about the games. As long as Nintendo keeps the games coming, then I don't really care about patent cases and legislations.

you also got emotional.

it's true about dlc, if i wanted those, i had to buy them on sale as well. just wait, everything goes on sale.

Nothing big, 30 million flat is chump change. Nintendo isn't going to have to pay royalties, and even then, can always buy the patent off the person.

Ah, there we go. Nintendo's safe as far as I'm concerned.

...Then again, shouldn't Sharp be sued? Or do you always go for the product owner in a patent infringement case then the product owner goes after whoever they got the tech from?

i said u were preempting damage control with your first post & u were.

you also got emotional.

it's true about dlc, if i wanted those, i had to buy them on sale as well. just wait, everything goes on sale.

Avoiding answering questions i see. So those games where 20 what exactly? Cmon now Troll was it USD, Pound Sterling, Euro's?

Preemptive damage control?! LOL.... I made a mistake on something so its not exactly damage control now is it you muppet lol.

Emotional lol.... Oh my i'm going to slit my wrists and drink vodka while listening to Enya or sumit LMAO. You dont know what you are on about and its the only line you got now is "you got emotional" which is incorrect i'm not i just enjoy owning Trolls.

I got the DLC free ... Free is better than paying for something even if its on sale.

Oh wow you can post a Scarecrow picture... Whooppeeee ... Shame you cannot put up a decent argument but you can put up a picture.

I have hard copies but thanks for not knowing.  Next.....   I can even show you just for some more ownage.  Have you included DLC to those games like Batman AC like the Revenge of harley quinn DLC ?  Noooo... Hahaha!!!  What a muppet.  20 what exactly?!  Potatoes ? Animal Skins? Fat women ?  

 

I admitted before you jumped onto to the self proclaimed ownage and even said "i apoligies" to the Topic Creator.  You attempted to make a big deal of it and looked stupid when attempting it. 

 

I was scarred of what exactly  I dont have stocks in Nintendo like i said previously and it doesnt directly or indirectly affect me in any possible way but you wanted to troll.  Be smart and think for a while rather than thinking people are all like yourself who cry about trivial information.

 

Yes a terrible troll as i already admitted to being wrong previously and obliterated all your arguments. Sadly you had to carry on.

 

And there is my 360 and Wii which i sold due to it collecting dust.  More ownage towards you.

I can also add a pic of my WiiU and my hard copies of games and also my 3DS just to own you that incy bit more.  Hitting a nerve?  I'd say its correcting your stupidity more so than hitting a nerve.  

 

NEXT....

Patents were once used to protect inventors, now they're just used for fat cats to sue one another over who came up with round edges first. Patents are no longer needed and protect no one.
