Being sued over a game port. I swear; patents these days. Nintendo was using this type of port back on the N64, which came out in '96, before this patent was filed. Prior art.

its bacause the patent system in the US is broken beyond belief. Companies are able to patent the most stupid and idiotic manors of things out there. Like Single Click to buy items that Amazon was granted. or iTunes being sued because somebody patent the idea to bring Music over the web, via an organized manor.

I wonder if I patent thought, if I could sue everyone I'm sure the U.S. patent office would grant me it.
