GameStop has says it finally is able to consistently meet demand for Wii home console systems. It has been just short of 3 years since Nintendo released the Wii, and there is finally enough inventory to fill the shelves. This should allow businesses to judge how much product will move this Holiday season, rather than just hoping to get as many Wii consoles as possible. Hopefully it also ends the horrible practice of distributors upping the Wii console price because the demand is so high.

Nintendo announced to day that a U.S. District court has dismissed the patent infringement lawsuit brought against them by Fenner Investments. Fenner had alleged that the Wii console and its motion control system infringed on one of Fenner's patents. The judge in Tyler, Texas dismissed the case and went on to rule that there was no need to bring this case to a jury. Congrats, Nintendo!

Even though the Wii has the least amount of non-family friendly games released for the platform, when things go south on Wii, they really go South hard. MadWorld comes to mind, with the ridiculously bloody red effects splashed against a black and white background. Manhunt 2, which caused controversy when gamers were allowed to play as a serial killer and partake in bloody awful kills, leaps to mind as well. And now, to add to the list, we have House of the Dead: Overkill. HotD:O is now, officially, the most profane game of all time, with 189 uses of the F-word alone. This count does not even incude the copious amounts of sexual humor thrown in. A dubious honor, to be sure, but like we said, when the Wii goes down, it goes down in flames.

Outspoken ex-box man (get it?) and EA Sports boss Peter Moore is pretty sweet on the new Wii MotionPlus. He claims that is is going to bring out the best in the new EA Sports games made especially for the new peripheral. In fact, he referred to Grand Slam Tennis with the Wii MotionPlus as "spectacular." Certainly that is some strong wording, let's hope he is not exaggerating.
