Nintendo has issued an update to their Nintendo Creators Program. The new rule now states that Live playthroughs on YouTube with Nintendo games are now not allowed. Nintendo’s had a rough history with video game streamers, and general uploaders of Nintendo game videos. As a business I understand why they want to control revenue based on their intellectual property, but at times it does seem quite unfair in some ways where what would otherwise be a win-win situation in terms of game advertisement. I hope Nintendo’s policies become less strict as time goes on.
