Pewdiepie Complains against Nintendo Youtube Policy

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Pewdiepie Complains against Nintendo Youtube Policy

This is an absolutely stupid move by Nintendo. I really hope a bunch of the YouTube gamers just stop showing Nintendo games so they don't gain anything from it.

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.

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.

It is a case by case thing really, going so far as game by game in some instances. The problem is that youtube/google should have made a policy from the get go that outlines and protects content, but I think they were afraid.

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?

They have no right to dub over them or edit them because that would be the analogy of "reverse engineering" (altering the content of) the game. Which is illegal in the first place.

Gamer's are playing the games as intended.

You reallly should look into that. Some mean spirited fella might even call you ingorant.

ps. not me  !



"Free advertising" is often quoted, but it can also mean loss in sales at the same time.
I can name a few games I've initially considered likely to buy, only to be 'satisfied' with it after watching a playthrough, and no longer felt that I wanted to play through it myself.
Of course, the opposite can also be true, but I find that this aspect is always left out by the youtubers in their arguments.

Also to be honest, for me it's sad to see how obsessed certain youtubers are with getting full revenue off of EVERY single video. I get that "if every company acted like this, we'd get nothing". But often times that doesn't seem like it's the main concern. Because if they don't have any other choice than to let the video be as it is, they prefer to take it down completely rather than let the company get a share of it. So basically, what comes first for them is the revenue. The viewers come in second.

And I find that sad. I'd prefer a youtuber who releases fewer vids, but with actual passion behind every one, rather than making it their livelihood and getting so focused on the revenue aspect.
It's not that I'm against it as a profession. I just feel that as a viewer, it's not preferable.

Except he doesn't. This won't affect Nintendo fans. 

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. 

My point was that PewDiePie does not advertise Nintendo products. He's scared that the companies whom he does advertise products for will follow suit. He has no interest in Nintendo products.

Youtubers make money from the ad revenues, not like Nintendo is paying them to play their game. Also to play the game they have to buy the game so Nintendo already got their money from that sale, now they're just being greedy because the Wii u isn't selling well.



I believe that if Nintendo's IPs were under creative commons he would be right.

And that anything not under creative commons is utter bullshit.



Why is the internet going crazy about the opinion of a single boring guy who talks to his computer all day. Please keep this thread away from the front page I don't give the slightest fudge.

Everyone wishes that it wasn't about the money. But there is a limit, especially given how little money there actually is in that business.



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

Somebody explain to me why music, sports, movies, tv shows and information from behind a paywall don't allow this but games should because of "the free advertising"? Wouldn't all the other companies allow this if it was such a boon?
