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. 

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

Wasn't Nintendo claiming 100% before? Seems like this should have been considered a step in the right direction. And it's a trial of the program, not necesssarily the final version so it could change.

Sounds like Pewds cares more about the cash than the games



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

He believes he contribute to Nintendo marketing and selling of games and as such he should be allowed to have full claim of the ad revenue he collects on Youtube.

He believes....

Couldn't the same be said for Nintendo here?



Some of all yall are really upset for no reason. It isn't like Nintendo is stopping them from playing games. They are just stopping them from making money off of doing it. I mean is it silly yes, but I do understand where they are coming from. I mean they invest money in their own marketing and treehouse events for playthroughs, why let some random basement dweller step in there.

And if you guys think Nintendo is the only one who was doing this, you guys forgot about Activision and COD Ghosts.

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.


Why shouldn't be legal for the IP owner to retain control from it's IP??? He bought a license to play no to profit on it.

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

If you google Pewdiepie today, you'll see this is the far most baity article -DonFerrari managed to find- written about the news in question.

Nintendo "marketing" against the "basement dweller" that is Pewdiepie...

You are either trying too hard to defend a certain company or you have no notion what you are talking about.

Wasn't specifically talking about PewDiePie because he isn't even really talking about himself he is mention "other dedicated nintendo youtubers".

And I already said that it was silly what Nintendo is doing so....someone is trying....its just not me. 



Conegamer said:
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.

Copied the article title... but no problem if you preffer me to edit.

Does the guy even cover Nintendo stuff? He doesn't. So what's the big issue? It's not as if he made an Income (which is all HE AND Companies care about) through Nintendo stuff.

Look at it this way: You're in good standing in a class, here comes a group project. You do your work right, but the teammates didn't do crap, and then they get the credit for YOUR work when they don't deserve shit. It's similar to this, the guy feels that he has the right to claim the videogames on his videos as "his", and thus feels entitled to get profit off of them, but in reality someone else owns the game and went through handwork... Just to have an idiot make money off their work.

I'm all up for property owners to defend their rights, yes perhaps 40% might be too much for a bunch of people who play videogames and upload them to YouTube for a living, but once again... They're making money off someone else's work.

For those who don't know: Whenever you buy a game, song, video, etc. You don't buy the media itself, but a "permission" to use the media in a way that won't affect the IP owner = No renting, etc. You don't actually own the game, because it's not your property or patented under your name.
