Anascape, the company that apparently holds patents on everything a videogame controller can do, has won their case against Nintendo.

Nintendo was sued for using Anascape's patented technology in their GameCube, Wavebird, and Wii Classic controllers. The Wiimote and Nunchuk were safe, however.

Anascape is the same company that sued Microsoft over their controllers, but MS settled with them for an undisclosed sum of money.

Nintendo intends to appeal the decision to get a discount. Too bad there aren't lawsuit coupons.
