In yet another patent infringement case this week for Nintendo, former Midway employee Pat Goschy is suing the money printer over a patent he holds from eight years ago involving motion controls similar to the Nintendo Wii remote, according to some local news station (via Go Nintendo - did anyone catch this news last night?). To validate his case further, Goschy has released a video on YouTube from 1999 where he shows off his system, which appears to be two wired sticks with accelerometers used to play the Dreamcast version of Ready 2 Rumble.
Goschy's video is embedded above. Warning: while the sight of the Dreamcast may excite you, the effects of Sega's final console might be counterbalanced by Goschy's lack of pants.
