Interesting..just a few weeks before FE Warriors and Mario....
Imagine a year with Nintendo coverage or gameplay have no online presence at all (including E3), how would the sales be then (if nintendo direct is basicly 100% of the "coverage").
It's strange that they only specify YouTube as a part of this. If they're inherently opposed to streaming, wouldn't they also mention Twitch? Or is their Creators program somehow specific to YouTube?
In other words, is this just Nintendo failing to understand the web (a likely reason) - or is YouTube's ad program failing to pay out for Nintendo (possibly a likelier reason)?
If that's the case, then what an overresponse.
A simple, "If we catch you being a racist asshole, you're getting dropped." would suffice.
And the sad thing is that next time he screws up, people will still cape for him en masse.Yup, just as people called it Pewdiepie's racist ass is starting to ruin it for everybody. Sucks for the non shitstain YouTubers but something had to come to a head because YouTube ain't gonna moderate their shit.
Was he also streaming a Nintendo game when he did it? I think ive read that he said it a few times.Because they don't want him or someone like him dropping a video of themselves saying the n word while playing Splatoon or something. Not being a livestream makes limiting the splash damage more likely.
Live streaming on YouTube falls outside the scope of the Nintendo Creators Program. You cannot broadcast content on YouTube Live from the account you have registered to the Nintendo Creators Program. If you plan to broadcast content on YouTube Live, you have a couple of options. First, you can broadcast content on YouTube Live from a channel that is not registered to the Nintendo Creators Program. Or, you can cancel your channel's registration to the Nintendo Creators Program and instead, register your videos containing Nintendos IP to the program separately. Videos which had previously been registered through your channel would need to be reregistered individually.
I can imagine that Nintendo don't want their games associated with, or for kids searching for their games to be greeted by, cock heads who casually shout racial slurs at their in-game opponents. This is unfortunate and unfair, but inevitable.
That makes it sound like even if they're making content about different stuff other than Nintendo games, they can't livestream it either. If that's the case then that hurts a lot of big Nintendo channels like CND and even GameXplain
