I am most unimpressed that this company seems to have patented everything from analog sticks to vibration functions.

It does seem like this is one of those "lets make money" suits

I guess the most are. I wish the law would say that after legal costs, the money made from suits would go to charity or something, that way only people who have actually been wronged would bother.

But then, people who had lost income would be unhappy that they didn't get it back. Perhaps they should be made to prove that they where using the patents and lost out because someone else took the idea.
