Nintendo Breaks Out the Legal Ninjas on the Nyko

Nintendo is suing Nyko for making a wireless version of it’s Wii nunchuk controller. It does seem like Nyko must be violating some kind of copyright, because its controller looks EXACTLY like the regular Wii controller. I’m thinking if Nintendo has some kind of patent on the controller design, then Nyko should have probably negotiated a license of some sort before they made theirs.

That said, I’m so tired of whipping myself with the connecting cord when I use both controllers that I really like this idea, and I hope the two companies can come to an accommodation, rather than Nintendo suing Nyko into oblivion. I might need to pick up a couple of these before they totally disappear.
