A bit behind, but yeah. Philips lost the main suit though, only winning the side patents. They've lost in Germany and a few other nations though, so this one win may not mean much in the long run, unless the US courts (which Philips filed for just a few weeks ago) follow the UK precedent rather than the rest of the world's precedent. 

Interestingly, both patents were filed AFTER the Wii came out, so Nintendo in theory shouldn't lose anything here. They're appealing and I presume if they bring this up in the appeal then they'll win. This is another case of patent trolling, but from a big company (which is notably unique).
