Nintendo has been found guilty of copyright infringement in the US and has been ordered to pay $21 million to small gaming firm Anascape.

The firm stepped on Anascape’s toes over its Wii Classic, WaveBird and GameCube controllers, says this AP report, but was left in the clear over the motion-sensing Wiimote.

Anascape has also successfully gained payment for Microsoft over Xbox controllers, after an out of court settlement was reached before the start of the Nintendo trial.
