To be fair, video games are meant to be played, so watching a video of it doesn't entail consumption of the full product. It would be like watching movie, tv show, or sports game with no sound. Still, it is Nintendo's property and they have a right to determine how to use it. People are arguing that Nintendo benefits from this third party let's play use, and in some cases that might very well be true. 

It's not really that simple. Yes, it's Nintendo's property, but they can do this sort of thing because Youtube allows them to. There isn't a clear precedence for this because it hasn't gone to court.

Fair use i don't think falls under people making money off of use of the content. Ironically, Youtube Poop or something like it could be protected as parody even if the owner is a Partner, or possibly video *reviewers* using content in order to create a critique. Then the question would come if a Let's Play falls under critique or merely presentation of the content. That's largely the issue, and one would think Nintendo would have less to fear from this than others. For instance, if i watched a let's play of a very story-driven game, like 999 or Heavy Rain, what incentive would i have to ever play it? A let's play of Smash U has less to fear from that, because you get little of the experience of the game through simply watching.



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

And yes, he has to be at least a little bit scared because that can affect his living

So, we went from "He's scared..." to "...he has to be...".

In this context both mean the same thing. First time I claimed it as a hypothesis, second time I claimed it as a conclusion. "Be" and "is" are both existential verbs. So there is no contradiction here. Both "he has got to be scared " and "he is scared" can be true. And one  implies the other, when considering the additional assumption of PewDiePie being a rational human being. Or do you want my language to be as rigourous as mathematical logic here?

He's only played two Nintendo games on his channel and they were both ROMs on the Project64 emulator. So basically, he's annoyed at Nintendo for not being able to make money off games he didn't buy?

Entitled Youtubers need to expire.

If you mean peope making money while using the content, it can still be fair use.



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

Uncharted is story driven. The games you mentioned branch considerably, they are choice driven.

You do realise you are quoting someone who (just like sc94597) made stuff up ? And by making stuff up I mean he said that Felix said, things that he didn't say !

 PewDiePie:

I also think this is a slap in the face to the YouTube channels that does focus on Nintendo game exclusively. The people who have helped and showed passion for Nintendo’s community are the ones left in the dirt the most.

 

 



Nintendo started this youtube digital rights shutdown at the start of the gen.
Proportional drop between let's play youtubers dropping nintendo and console and handheld sales dropping or simple coincidence?

First you must verify the bolded. Is this true?

He has nothing to be scared of. He has a gigantic fan base that would watch him play anything. Besides he pretty much only plays small indie games lately and indie devs dream about Pewdiepie playing their games. He has nothing to worry about, he's just speaking on behalf of let's players because he's the biggest one and because his voice is heard.
