i heard from a friend (breetel01) that supposedly the Wii is gonna be discontinued, because the Wii is getting a patened sued by another company for supposedly having the same thing as the other company, that "thing" is the WiiMote. Is this rumor true? I don't believe it, simply because this friend of mine is a Sony Fanboy.

Saying Nintendo copied these people is a stretch to say the least. It sounds like a classic abuse of the patent system.

But anyway, not a chance. Even if Nintendo lost to them (unlikely), all they would need to do is pay royalties to these scum buckets.

I have been told by poeple all kinds of things, like the wii would have the same graphics as the DS, the ps3 would bankrupt Sony, and the 360 is 100 times more powerful than the origonal x box. There is no way the Wii is being canned. If this was even close to being true it would be all over gaming news as it would be the first time in history that the #1 selling system died becuase it sold too much! If the Wii was not making $ hand over fist Nintendo would not be getting sued.

Doesn't something like this come up every few months or something for just about every gaming company out there? Isn't this all old news and nothing ever comes of these stories anyways.

Bogus claims.

It's absolutley true. The Wii will be discontinued. Also, every Wii owner can legally join in the class action law suit and recieve a cash entitlement equal to the total price of your Wii console and any extra peripherals you have purchased. Nintendo themselves will be offering all current Wii owners free access to the WiiShop (no more WiiPoints needed) and will be issuing discount vouchers for the next console system.

... And then we came back to reality. Who in their right minds would actually think a mega-company like Nintendo would actually have to discontinue a product, regardless what the accusation is? They have jsut as much money to buy their way out of any situation than any other mega-company. As per the actual law suit, one little controller patent isn't even anywhere near a big enough issue to impact Nintendo customers. This is just a case of one company siphoning cash from a bigger company by way of lawyer.

This guy is 100% correct.

I've already hired a lawyer, filed my suit, and received my cash!

Mac n' Cheese is popular everywhere, man. The reason saddam hussein came out of his spidey hole and surrendered was because he ran out of it.

Any case, the Wii is so popular that soon we'll be saying Kraft Dinner sells like Wiis instead.

The TC probably doesn't have a Wii. They may be hard to find, but that doesn't mean that they are being discontinued.

It's stilling selling strong worldwide. Why would Nintendo suddenly discontinue the wii since it has another 3 years to go?

Because they wouldn't.

Personally I don't give a care about the other "Big two" but Im not saying they're doing this but if some other company is going to sue Ninendo let me just say they're very jealous of their popularity. They'll brush this off in an instant besides Nintendo got sued so many times and the majority was they won them.

Every single time they lost a court case, they always pay fines in full price. It doesen't effect them one bit.

It kinda makes mad ver angry whenever nintendo get's bashed by some other company. :evil:

I was thinking sueing would happen, but by Nintendo. One day I was watching TV and then a comercial came on about some sort of cube shaped thing saving vgames from the internet that used motion control and had the same controller with a different button scheme (1 and 2 buttons replace by x and y), and this thing was made AFTER Nintendo made the Wii. So the sueing thing is mixed around.
