You may recall a month ago that Nintendo’s patent of Supplemental Computing Devices for game consoles had been almost granted. The issue fee had been paid, but the patent was not yet granted. Well, that is no longer the case. On July 27th, an issue notification went out on the patent, which included the notice that the patent would be issued, or granted, on August 16th. Sure enough, the patent was granted right on schedule. Whether this has anything to do with the NX is a mystery, but until the NX is revealed, we’ll just have to wait and see.
