Rockman commented on Nintendo Overcomes Patent Dispute With Non-Pra...:

@Daruncic We all know Philips is no Patent Trolling company as they invented CD, DVD, LD, co-developing Blue-Ray.. clearly no Patent Troll..
/Ontopic: not all companies are patent trolls and try to get money from large companies. I for one know: Philips is easily 10 times the size of nintendo and is just protecting their patents. If they let Nintendo use the patent for free other companies will follow. Let's just see what happens O.K. ?

@PvtOttobot : The story with Philips is that they contacted nintendo asking to take a license for the infriged patents. Nintendo gave no reaction to that; for 4 years! So Philips hired a Law firm to contact Nintendo and then Nintendo's response was quite simply: you don't have anything so: go away. This thing is running since the start of 2011 and has to do with the Wii-Mote plus accessory and later the Wii-Mote plus controller. Philips used and patented the technology somewehere in het late 90's as they were testing T.V. remotes and they now use it for Medical equipment. So I think philips took the long road and tried to settle with Nintendo out-of-court but instead Nintendo ignored them.

Rockman commented on Talking Point: The Download or Disc Dilemma:

I hate the fact that on wii-u the software is console bound; my friends Wii-U died 3 times and every time his game saves and wii transferred purchases are gone.. really frustrating. Nintendo should take the example of Sony and bound the software to a user account and let the user bound one console to his account where he can re-install the software and also lets the user save his save files to the cloud.. just my 5 cents..
