Pewdiepie WHO?

The guy with far and away the most youtube subscribers in the world.

I don't get why Nintendo are doing this. They're not gonna get that much out of it and just generates negativity. It's like they live in a bubble.

If this applies to game reviews, it's definitely crossing the moral line.



No troll is too much for me to handle. I rehabilitate trolls, I train people. I am the Troll Whisperer.

I think the main issue here that some people would have is just how much of the cut Nintendo is asking for, I watched a video on Tb explaining how Nintendo's cut and other party cut ranges involved affect the LP'r in general, I find the other parties involved are asking for a lot anyway and then there's Nintendo included, that's not to say they shouldn't demand what they want, it;s just that the other parties involved have clearly done the same, combine them all and the LP'r has next to no money made which in turn means less LP'ing and the free publicity (and money generated for Nintendo/other parties) crawls slowly to nothing.

I find the past few years that Lp's have some actual consumer swaying power, take a look at what happened to TB, Jim sterling and even Angry joe when bad devs or companies take a stab at them, they let the public know, the public gets angry and the devs/corps take notice, they have almost no choice but to either goad us to the edge and see what happens then or break down and follow suit (which they should since no customers=no business, they exist because we allow them to with our money).

I think what Ninty is doing is right, Sony and MS should be doing this but really they shouldn't ask for an up front 40-50%, not unless the other parties involved turn down their required cut, if all parties trim down their required cut it could make everyone happy in a way that would allow LP'rs to make money and still buy the products and the product owners to generate money from LP'rs as well as free good publicity and more sales generated from LPr's, the other parties involved can still take their cut with more content without asking for more % and everyone wins.

But instead we're facing most parties asking for more and Nintendo as well, it;s going to create a rift with the LP community and their fans in general if Nintendo and the others involved don't sort out their cut percentage, if you ask for much more and leave LP'rs with next to nothing you effectively kill the reason to LP, they live on LP money and if you kill that reason you also kill your free publicity, extra money that could be made and good will/credit along with it all and since this is the internet it will most certainly linger for years to come which will hamper future endeavours.

There's also this thread where it's pretty apparent that Nintendo-centric Youtubers should have no problems with how Nintendo handles things. I didn't know about this before because the Nintendo vs. Youtube discussions have always looked so onesided in the past. So it really looks like the only Youtubers who are throwing a fit are those who want to keep the ad revenue from their videos all to themselves or those who got caught by surprise that there's a company out there who is more serious about protecting its own content.



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

Why wouldn't I believe why when this bullshit youtube deal of Nintendo is the only thing youtubers are currently talking about? He is just one of many who see and tell people how much of a stupid move this is by Nintendo.

Nintendo may be right in claiming ownership but they gain more money without that deal than it would ever earn them. All it does is pissing off unpaid marketing staff, which is what most youtubers essentially are for Nintendo.

Pewdiepie, and all of the other vocal youtubers over this matter, dont play Nintendo games on their channels anyway.

I think Pewdiepie played Mario 64 once, but that was on an emulator, not a purchased copy of the game.

Yeah I've gotta say he sorta has a point here. And if he thinks it plenty of others will too, and that could (I stress could) hurt Nintendo.

Also the thread title is rather click-baity, but that's the title of the article I suppose.



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

he is right, and not only is Nintendo wrong, they are just completely flat out stupid.

Love him or hate him the guy has a massive following. People watch him cause its him not cause he may be playing a Nintendo game, and the fact is that he is doing Nintendo a favor by giving them exposure not the other way around.

I swear I believe there is a book of things not to do in the gaming industry and Nintendo is following it to the T

Well, as long as they don't charge for the revenue generated through the reviews themselves.

He can die for all I care.  Same goes for the people that watch people like him play games and do stupid commentary.

For a company that prides themselves as being gamers making games for gamers, they sure don't seem to care about some of us gamers.

Look at the end of the day, if I bought the game I should have every right to share my playing experience with other gamers. Games are not like movies or music, where you watch a movie once and then you never need to watch it again. It's a visual experience that you get to control and be a part of.

So no matter how many people wanna say this makes people reconsider buying the game when they can simply view it on youtube; it simply isn't the case with most gamers. I may certainly look up a game and decide it's not my cup of tea but if it even remotely looks fun I'll heavily consider buying it. I can't tell you how many times I've found a youtuber I follow playing a game I never heard of before and it drove me to buying said game.

At the end of the day, if the game is impressive enough, people will buy it regardless of whether they see Pewdiepie or anyone else play it on youtube.
