While I do think Nintendo do have the right to do this. I wouldn't say that the situation is the same as uploading music and movies. With music and movies if you upload them you aren't doing anything yourself you are just copy pasting. While in games you are playing the game, you are manipulating the characters. It's more comparable to remixing a song in my opinion.

Many we'll agree to that, but this is how we think. The business world doesn't work like that.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

So before we comment, according to you, we should read the OP, read everything else in this thread, read Pewdiepie's blog, and watch a video made by Boogie. Anything else I'm missing?

Are you admitting you posted without reading the OP ?

So how many of these people who rage over Nintendo (misguided) policy atually plays Nintendo-games on their channel?


Perhaps there would be more if Nintendos self destructive policies didnt exist? (anyone who wants to embed should use the embed tag like shown here http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_youtube.asp



I predict that the Wii U will sell a total of 18 million units in its lifetime. 

The NX will be a 900p machine

Doubt it makes much of a difference. Haters be haters.

Weird that the youtube vid shows up in your edited post, but not my quote of it.



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

Pretty much spot-on. Granted, the "free advertising" angle is over-emphasized but that doesn't make it any less true. Totalbiscuit had a fairly well-reasoned video discussing in detail problems with it, and some of the fine-print needs work before anyone could reasonably think its a good deal.

As far as the idea itself goes, it's bad policy on its own, even worse if this becomes widely accepted.



I believe in honesty, civility, generosity, practicality, and impartiality.

I understand that him showing a game off would up its exposure and lead to sales(even though any day a game being on sale would entice me to buy more than his influence) . But he's not being paid as an advertiser. Most gamers wouldn't be able to tell you who he is. All he wants is click bait. He's a YouTube personality and gaming is his shtick. He's just worried for his bottom line, if other companies follow suit his business model would collapse. He doesn't care about game exposure, he just wants your clicks. Watch the southpark episode making fun of this, it shows how game companies are mad how kids aren't playing games only watching others play. I'm all for concise reviews and Easter egg videos or parodies on YouTube but somebody consistently broadcasting themselves playing somebody else's creation and profiting and claiming they made good by spurning a couple sales is arrogant

Wait a second. The problem with these "haters" is that they are trying to make this into a profession. So without a profit (as boogie demonstrated) they have no reason to waste time(=money) on nintendo.

And its thinking like that that's got Nintendo in the hole they are in today. 

A lot of good Nintendo fans have done for the WiiU so far, if I were Nintendo u would be doing everything I can to get as much eyes on my products as possible. 

So you think him profiting off of others work is doing them a favor? 

Go create something, wait for someone to steal a portion of what you made, then come back and share your insight.



And you fail to see the big picture. How much do you think Nintendo stands to make from youtubers showing parts of their game? 

How much do you think they have to make from people buying a WiiU and games from having watched one of such videos? 

What I am saying is simple, YouTube and someone playing my console is free marketing as far as I am concerned. I would rather have as many people see my games and hopefully end up buying my console, than they see more of my competitions games.

Except it is only Nintendo doing it this way. The rest of the industry is pretty much fine with youtube lets plays of their games.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Wait a minute. Are you implying that these guys should only make video (content) that they can profit off of.....hmmmm.

What if Nintendo took their let's plays and dub over them/editted them. Should they get profit from those videos or nah?
