Nintendo Getting Sued Over Switch Joy-con Idea


Picture from: https://goo.gl/images/TLZk4K
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?

Rock Star Supporting Nintendo Switch Petition 

From @RockStarGames Twitter 

It would be awesome to play Grand Theft Auto V on Nintendo’s Switch! You could play on TV, portable mode, or table top mode. Imagine playing GTA V in the car or outside. Immagine playing Red Dead Redemption 2 on it. 

Sure, the graphics would be downgraded a little, but if they can make it run at 720 p and 1080 p on tv, that would be great. Make sure it has stable 60 FPS. If it has to be digital, so be it. Most PC games are digital now. 

Here, I made a petition on Change.org: https://www.change.org/p/the-fans-can-make-a-change-just-like-what-they-did-with-gta-v-mods-rockstar-games-support-on-nintendo-switch?recruiter=306414717&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink&utm_campaign=share_petition

Resident Evil: Revelations 1 & 2 Confirmed for Switch, As Well As PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

re 20th

Capcom had a successful game of Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers on Switch, 450K units sold since May. Later, a Capcom employee said on Twitter, “preparing Switch versions” of games. The following days, Resident Evil: Revelations 1 & 2 were confirmed for the system. The games are coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, too. However, it launches August 29 for PS4 and Xbox One, whereas the Switch has a late 2017 date. While this is not Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil: Revelations 2 skipped the Wii U, and for now, this is better than no Resident Evil on Switch, not one Wii U port, but also a game that was never on Nintendo. Revelations 2 isn’t even that old.

Nintendo Switch Battery Indicator Fix

Nintendo has addressed a glitch on the Switch where the battery percentage displays incorrectly or not at all. The new update should fix this, though. This is good news. 

What may not be good news, from what some sources suggest; to let the Switch run down to 0% several times in a row and then let it sit on the UI for several hours. Hopefully, this part isn’t the case for everyone. It does, however, seem to fix the issue.
