Am I the only person that thinks pewdiepie is overrated and cared about nothing he said before this?

Your not the only one. Pewdiepie almost ruinded South Park for me.

Anyway, he does make valid points, but I won't give a shit.

I think the people in this thread are focusing too much on Pewdiepie. The actual point of this stretches across all youtube LPers and reviewers. Hell, even the article's author thinks it's a stupid idea^^

Most people think it's a stupid idea, but it is a step in the right direction. 2 years ago it was much worse. It's a good start and they will hopefully  soon see that youtube isn't a bad thing for them.

Square Enix also doesn't like people who upload gameplay of their games btw. They have been claiming videos for quite some time too.

How is taking such an aggressive step in the wrong direction a step forward? There was nothing before that program except Nintendo cracking down on some vids. The right direction would be doing less of what they're doing and not more. Or do you think they're now less aggressive towards youtubers who refuse the deal?

And I don't think we need many more examples of why SE is fucking stupid.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

It should'nt even be legal for Nintendo or any other publisher to claim profits from lets plays. The gamer has already purchased the game and the publisher has already received the money for the game sale.

"Cracking down some videos" That's not true at all.

They were claiming content of every single youtube video that had Wii U / 3DS gameplay (only first party games).

That means that the content creator can't make a single cent with those videos anymore.

If you have to chose between giving them 100% and giving them 40%, what would you take? It is quite obvious.

As I said, it isn't the best thing ever, but it is better than what we had 2 years ago.

I think both are in the right on this one. Ninten does have the right to take some of that money from youtubers using footage from their games as they are their games. It can also be a negative with Let's Plays if they show the entirety of one of the games and people watch them rather than buying the game for themselves.

However, with how big video games are on youtube and some of the most popular channels being about video games, this is free advertising for them, as big names like PewDiePie can expose and promote Nintendo's games to a massive audience, build interest the the games, and get more people to buy the games, netting them more potential buyers.

While it's understandable that Ninten would have a piece of the profit and may be somewhat against their games being posted on youtube, there is a lot that could be gained by giving these youtubers more freedom to use their content however they see fit.

That's not how this works though. You also can't just use any music you want on youtube, or even pictures. 

They could easily take down videos if they want to, it has happened several times with music and pictures as well.

There are strict rules you need to watch out for, otherwise they'll strike you immediately.

Ditto here. I neither like nor dislike him, but it can't be denied he is a huge internet personality.

It's within Nintendo's right to demand a part of the revenue but it's also incredibly stupid. Unless you're at the very very top of the pile you earn very little through youtube as it is.

Taking 40% of the revenue of someone who is advertising your product for free is ridiculous, there's a reason other companies haven't gone down this root.

Nintendo are just trying to grab money with this move and i've always viewed them as a pro-consumer company who are passionate about games and care about what they create first and foremost. This move has really thrown modern-nintendo into question for me. Are they not that company anymore?

Also Nintendo send the money to you in USD through PayPal, this means in countries with other currencies you have to pay associated fee's ontop of the 40% nintendo are taking.

Nintendo has always been about the money first and foremost.  Anyone who says otherwise is just kidding themselves.  Nintendo's legendary business practices of the 80s and 90s are such that if Sony or especially Microsoft tried to emulate them today, people would be screaming bloody murder.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

He doesn't sound like the brightest bulb in the room and probably also believes that it should be legal for him to charge an audience for watching a blu-ray movie at his home. As soon as you use someone else's work for commercial use, you not only need permission of the creator, but also have to share the money you generate. No idea why Youtube should suddenly be an exception.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
