Company, Gamevice is claiming Nintendo has infringed thier patent on the unreleased Wikipad. Never heard of this company? Me either. Anyway, they had a patent to release a gaming tablet that had a detachable controller just like the Switch. Interesting enough, it also used the NVIDIA Tegra X1 chip.

Both systems have detachable controllers. Although the Switch looks significantly different. However, due to the success of the Switch, Gamevice claims this has damaged thier product; despite giving up on the entire thing. They had switched to Mobile add-ons.
I believe they are suing Nintendo because they are jellous. In fact, they are suing over just the design of the Joy-cons, yet they want the entire system to get a ban. It seems they are more likely greety. I also can’t help but feel that they have no way to compete now because they are afraid to bring back Wikipad. I actually think this whole thing will be dropped in court. What do you think?
