I wonder if Nintendo ever gets tired of being sued. This time, they’ll find friends in Sony and Nokia, for they are being sued for the same thing.

Plano, Tex.-based Wall Wireless LLC says that Nintendo has infringed upon U.S. patent 6,640,086, named “Method and Apparatus for Creating and Distributing Real-Time Interactive Media Content Through Wireless Communication Networks and the Internet…pertain(ing) to methods and systems that allow an operator to distribute messages having aural or visual content that is generated by the operator using handheld apparatuses such as mobile telephones.” The Nintendo DS and interactions with games such as Mario Kart DS are named in the lawsuit. Nintendo is yet to comment.
