Nintendo being sued by Philips

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/a...es-in-u-s.aspx

So apparently Philips has a patent defined as "Virtual Body Control Device"
I hate to say i'm not educated enough to know the aspects of a patent or even where this infringement comes from.

Can someone shed some light on this?

By the way,
Nintendo has apparently declined to comment on this matter.

Nintendo gets sued like every month for something by somebody. Remember when the Wii first came out and everyone and their brother tried to sue Nintendo about the Wii Mote because they apparently had something similar? Yeah. It happens. A lot.

Businesses can be pretty vicious. Nintendo is just continually targeted for how much money they have.

At this point it might be easier to name the times of year when they aren't being sued.
