Oh guys, I know what we should do next!
Make selling of older Call Of Duty Games illegal, so that the newer Call Of Duty games will bring in more players!
Just...Plain idiotic...

Wait, didn't Microsoft use this same patent foolishness to make it that the PS3 can't do music swap?

Ha, payback's a bitch.

Microsoft had the patent since the original Xbox since they where the ones who invented it.
PS2 didnt have it, GameCube didnt have it, Dreamcast didnt have it - that was a legit and 'fair' patent.

This Patent here is for the h264 video codec - which something used... well, everywhere.
Windows 7, Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player und Xbox 360's have it. All of those are banned from selling in germany 'cause of the same patent.

Motorola will probably try to do the same in the USA.

From what I understand, Microsoft built hardware using Motorola tech without telling them, so they retaliated by banning their hardware in select countries.
Is that the tl;dr? Or is it more complicated than that?

Software, actually.
It has to do with the h264 video codec which used in... probably everything related to HD Video Playback on Computers & on BluRay.
The Codec is being sold by the MPEG-Group, who invented it. But Motorola (for same reason) has some patents related to it.
Its way beyond complicated. This could go as far as Windows not supporting it anymore.
And thats a bigger problem than you think it is, since its used everywhere. Though, i doubt that would actually happen.
Not only that, but Motorola was/is seeking for 4 billion every year after Microsoft asked them to settle this for 300 Million.

I love you too.

If Xbox 360s become illegal that will only make it cooler to have them.

They'd probably just have to compensate the companies or something Cheesy.

No ones going to pay 4 billion per year to Motorola.

Microsoft would only give them 300Million ONCE, at most.

But whats the point, really? Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 & The New Xbox are all coming next year.
