Wi-Fi Company Sues Nintendo, Sony

Bandspeed, a company specialising in wi-fi networks, has filed a patent infringement suit against Nintendo, Sony and Apple, claiming devices from all three companies cut a little too close to two patents they hold.

At the heart of the lawsuit are three devices - the PS3, Wii and iPhone 3G - which Bandspeed allege violate their patents relating to "managing wireless communication channels using frequency hopping".

The suit was filed last week, so there's not really much more to it than that, but you've got to wonder, why just the Wii and PS3? What about the PSP and DS? Their Wi-fi not good enough for a lawsuit, huh?
