New week new su- Wait, is his attorney really called Joe Diamante?

Like Springfield's Mayor in The Simpsons (That's his name in my country, at least)?
Now, that's amusing.

Hasn't this happened about once or twice (probably more) before where someone tried to sue Nintendo claiming Nintendo stole there idea and Nintendo ended winning anyway?

Entertaining only because it's not a large company suing (Eff you Konami)

I'd actually laugh my head off if he won a small settlement. The $9.80 thing might be a bit too much though.

Well if he showed it to Nintendo in 2003 I would guess he would be an ex-employee at that point, which would make his former place on Sony's playroll just part of his resume, and by the way the article is wrote, it seems to not be a factor, just a fact to get people to think about this too much.

I used to travel the stars, then I discovered Earth, and these incredibly addicting things called 'Video Games.'
And they said you couldn't buy happiness!

Nintendo. COPIED. From. SONY.

You shouldn't have done that.

Just for you.

If you type in Seijiro Tomita into Google, then all you get is picture's of 3DS''s

But still, why didn't he give the 3D use to Sony then?

Also, this might help Nintendo win.

Not that I think this lawsuit will win, but it's over a patent for the specific kind of 3D technology that the 3DS uses.

There are many different ways to create a 3D effect, and the 3DS' 3D effect uses completely different technology to the Virtual Boy.

This guy isn't claiming he has patented 3D, just the 3D technology that the 3DS uses, and therefore the Virtual Boy is not a defence that Nintendo's lawyers will be using.

Unless they're terrible lawyers, in which case ex-Sony dude will actually win.

Ah, more suing. You can take the man out of Sony, but you can't take Sony out of the man.

I'm confused. I thought the type of 3D in the 3DS has been known about for years, just not practical for use in theaters and such.

I always thought Sharp's parallax tech was put in there? There's a host of devices using this tech, is this guy sure he's got the right idea?

This looks like a 'I was gonna' lawsuit. We're talking about how they make the 3D effect happen technologically, not the concept of 3D displays. Nintendo says his design was a 'cross point' method of getting glasses free technology. They already pay a company that makes the screens specifically for Nintendo's consoles that makes the screens under license. If they're gonna sue someone, they should be targeting the company Nintendo's buying the screens from. In this case, Nintendo would be the middle man for handing this guy money. Nintendo's not a bank. Haha. They probably would have used this guys tech and credited him for it if it was worth buying. Nintendo doesn't invest money to develop a product. If anything, he should sue Sony for not applying his idea to their 3D HDTVs, which wouldn't make sense either.
I call BS overall in this situation.
