Instead of paying the $21 Million bond, Nintendo has decided to take all the controllers off the shelves. [...] As of July 23rd, no more Gamecube or Wii Classic controllers will be sold in the US. Nintendo, however, is not giving up. They plan on appealing the decision in a U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which would put the ban on hold for the time being.
