Nintendo To Split Ad Revenue With Streaming Gamers
An anonymous reader writes "Over the past several years, as computers and networks have improved to handle heavier loads, it's become popular for people to stream video game footage over sites like YouTube and Twitch. Last year, Nintendo aggressively went after the players doing this for their games, hijacking the ad revenue generated through YouTube. It angered the gaming community, and was actively hostile to the people who were Nintendo's biggest fans. Now, Nintendo has partly walked back their position: they've agreed to share some of the advertising profits with the streamer. It's still hostile to the people actively putting Nintendo game playthroughs out there for others to watch, but it's a step in the right direction."
It is a step in the right direction, but we still need more from Nintendo. They require to collaborate more with the Indi games developer and the consumer. On this news, let the users to create the video they want on YouTube.
I still think for example of all the games I have on Steam that I bought from the Humble Bundle that I wish someday to have it in my console without an extra charge.
