Anyone ever been threatened by Nintendo?

Recommended Posts

Remember when I said this last year?

Nintendo, or anyone else for that matter, probably wouldn't warn an individual, they'd just hit them with the banhammer and be done with it.


No way, it's like I am right~


This was an unexpected necro, BTW, but still interesting to see.

Yes but people tend to forget physical games are not as definitive as people think they are. You own a copy of the game, not the game itself. So it's like buying a license that allows you to play that copy on a specific system. It doesn't give you the right to download the ROM or even dump the game yourself to play it on your phone, for instance, which most people don't know about.

Oh yeah I get that.  It's an interesting gray area because someone would have to prove you downloaded it, dumping it is legit if you have the tools within the country, at least here, maybe France is different.  Here you get the license and you have rights t one copy, so even if you made 3 you couldn't legally fire up a Gameboy, a computer GB Emulator, and an android one at the same time not that you'd get caught. :P

THis was a double post, but why not reply to the last couple. ;)  Yes it's necro, but relevant.  Nintendo dropped the hammer on a cheat, but in an even more heinous way as losing an account basically means they legally can be assholes and steal every legal game you paid for too which is bullshit.  Someone could make a mistake or get accused of a mistake (hacked/stolen password to legit account) by not their own means and lose thousands of dollars in games they're cut off from because...TOS.


I could get my switch banned right now, everything on the shelf behind me I can still play, but if I were that guy in the story and it was all rental ware, I'd have NO games anymore too which is awful.

And then the email said "Actually, I am in really bad shape financially. I pay money to my ex-wife as part of our divorce settlement, among other bills... I just had no choice but to make you pay for lunch the other day. I'm really sorry," and, finally, "Raiden, turn the game console off right now!"
