That was filed for Patency in 2004! Plus i think you're going a bit mad over what we probabily know as the Sony Eye-Toy :P

I apologise ;) you are most probably right Lee-yoshi but all i can say is companies have had a big habit in copying Nintendo design and concepts then doing just enough to make them different as not to get sued.

Off toic sry: I did enjoy the Nintendo playstation fuss tho :P :P

Hehe, of course Sony will copy it eventually, as Ninty have said, everything else of theres has now become standard in the industry, so it's only a matter of time, so keep watching those US Patents :P

Don't be so harsh Pink. You haven't actually used the Revolution yet, so you can't really mark the Revolution or it's controller, for that matter, as a disgrace as of yet. I'm as skepitical of it all as you are, but I won't mark it as "phail" until I actually try it out for myself. :beard:
