Honestly I've been saying we should have these for years. Not just to make the game more realistic but also for training purposes. Just imagine if everytime you made an error while gaming you got an electric shock. Wendel Mobendel wouldnt stand a chance against the hordes of electric shock refined gamers.

The policy change to allow software protection under patent law is the most horrible decision to ever come out of the U.S. Patent Office. 99% of the software patents I have seen are questionable at best and completely frivolous at worst.

Corporations big and small are porking up on as many patents as possible just to leverage themselves when caught infringing on someone else’s frivolous patent. There is already a five-year back log on software patent applications before they even get reviewed. I know from personal experience that is it becoming almost impossible to create any kind of software without infringing on some obscure patent somewhere.

All of the millionaires and billionaires who made their fortunes in the software business did so under the protection of copyright law. Software patents are almost exclusively used to prevent potential competitors from developing a better product, period.
