Walk of Fame

The Walk of Fame in Hollywood contains stars from entertainment legends. For one to get their own star is considered a huge honor that recognizes one’s dedication and impact on entertainment. Usually the stars are reserved for actors and actresses, but Nintendo wants to show their legacy by asking for their beloved Mario to get his own star.
An online petition calls for a new Interactive Entertainment category to be added to the world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame to honor video game heroes. The category would supplement the current Walk of Fame categories for Film, Television, Recording, Stage and Radio.

Fans can join the cause at www.petitionspot.com/petitions/walkoffame, which asks the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to recognize that interactive entertainment has become as much a part of the landscape as films and television. For more than 25 years, video games have entertained millions of people around the world, and a new category could honor legendary characters like Mario, Donkey Kong and Zelda.

Video games are the entertainment medium of the 21st century. According to the Entertainment Software Association, half of all Americans 6 and older play video games, and the average game player is 29 years old. Additionally, 39 percent of players are women. Unlike other diversions, interactive video games draw players in and make them a part of the experience by letting them control the action. Players can spend dozens of hours conquering and replaying their favorite games as they form emotional attachments to their characters. No other entertainment medium forms such a close connection with its audience.

The petition will remain online through March, after which it will be delivered to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for consideration.
As a proud member of the Nintendo generation, I for one support this petition.

Dual Shock lawsuit

In case you haven’t heard about it yet, apparently Sony and Microsoft have been sued over the use of their controllers. The lawsuit comes from Immersion Corporation. Sony and Microsoft are accused of violating 16 patent claims with their controllers. The lawsuit targets the force feedback or rumble feature of their controllers.

Microsoft apparently dealt with Immersion out of court, and are able to use to force feedback design, but Sony fought the lawsuit. Things took a nasty turn for Sony though as it seems they have lost the latest court decision. Sony of course has appealed, but if they lose Sony will have to make a deal with Immersion or possibly be forced to recall ALL Dual Shock controllers.

The latest report out says the court has ordered Sony to stop all sales of the PS2 in the US. I have not been able to confirm this report, but if this true, it will launch Microsoft into the #1 home console spot, and could end up very nasty in the end for Sony.
