Nintendo's Epic Fail — Grabbing Copyright From Its YouTube Fans



Quote:
You might think that Nintendo, beleaguered by falling revenues, minuscule profit and the almost-but-not-quite-failed launch of the Wii U, already has enough problems to worry about.

And you would be wrong, as Nintendo itself set out to demonstrate last week by going out of its way to alienate a bunch of its fans on YouTube.

The fans in question make YouTube "playthrough" videos about, well, video games — features that combine elements of commentary, review, tutorial and walk-through. Some of these commentators reach millions of subscribers, and many support themselves in full or in part by running ads against their videos.

I can feel another video game crash, and it will be glorious.

Nintendo seem to be doing what they can for that extra cash, I don't think the WiiU did what they expected. This is a major fail on their part.. This is something I'd expect EA to do, not Nintendo

As part of our on-going push to ensure Nintendo content is shared across social media channels...
I think they just ensured the opposite.
This will turn many more people off of Nintendo.

I think this was probably the most accurate quote in the article: "Nintendo's Self-Inflicted Headshot"

This sounds like a serious case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing, the community is probably all that Nintendo has left at this point and this is a nice slap to their face. If this is how they are going to go out I can't say I really will miss them.

Grew up with Nintendo and they've always been awesome to their fan base.

Until now...

Never thought I'd see the day when Nintendo turned into copyright trolls, but then again it seems Nintendo has been infected with the copyright troll plague that seems to be spreading rapidly.

Nintendo needs to stop pushing motion gaming and trying to appeal to non-gamers. They really lost their way with N64 and never recovered. They have dumbed-down their games to the point that they are not challenging or alluring to actual gamers.

No more tutorials. Let these kids think a bit and figure it out.
