The Nintendo Switch, SNES Classic Just Beat the Snot Out of Sony, Microsoft

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. If a report from the NPD Group is accurate, Nintendo is eating Sony and Microsoft’s lunch in the United States. The Switch was the #1 selling console in October, while the Nintendo SNES Classic is #2.

Nintendo Says SNES Classic Production Will Be ‘Dramatically Increased’

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. The launch of Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition last year was marred by the company’s near-total disconnection from reality, as supply issues drove resale prices of the mini-console to several hundred dollars.

Nintendo loses court case over Wii motion controllers

Nintendo has been told to pay a medical-device maker $ 10m (£7.75m) after losing a court case over who invented motion-sensing technology. Health technology company iLife sued Nintendo in 2013, saying Wii console controllers used technology it had patented. It originally sought damages of $ 144m. In court, Nintendo said the technology in iLife’s patent was not specific enough to cover the way Nintendo used motion-sensing technology. The row revolves around controllers for both the Wii and Wii U consoles, which are fitted with accelerometers that work out how someone…
