Nintendo Found Their Hearts, Smash Streaming is Back On For EVO

Yamilia from writes: " In a Grinch-like turn of events, apparently streaming for Super Smash Bros. Melee will go on for EVO as Shoryuken has given a change to their official statement on the subject." (Super Smash Bros., Wii U)

Man, what a relief.

They must have either got paid or figured out how fast their image was sinking.

I really wonder what's going on at Nintendo and Microsoft. How do such experienced corporations NOT REALIZE what gamers want without it being tweeted a million times?

At least they're both learning their lessons. But they still shouldn't have denied them the game in the first place...

you left sony out

you know like how they thought 600 for a console was justified and told us to get a second job if we really wanted it. but no ofcourse that is overlooked among other things
all of them are guilty of making crappy decisions
the difference is whether they care enough to change their minds

no but nobody looks at that

and before you go claiming, thats old news, people still bring up RRoD and such

nothing is forgotten

2006 Sony, yeah.

But I'm living in 2013 right now and it's Nintendo and Microsoft making massive mistakes right now.

Last time I checked Microsoft's mistakes have been considerably larger as of late. Make no mistake, this move was lousy on Nintendo's part. But at the very least, it's not akin to keeping their console always online, barring the free commerce of used games and letting their PR make the whole situation far worse than it already was. Or outright treating indies like crap.

And at least Nintendo rectified this issue in a matter of hours. Doesn't make it all that much better, but credit where credit is due. It's a lot damn more than can be said for Microsoft as of late.

Think I popped a few blood vessels. Thank you Nintendo. Although i'm afraid the damage might have already been done. But either way, really looking forward to the Stream. Hope the Smash community brings their A game like the KOF community did last year. Hype!

That was the shortest Nintendo-related internet meltdown I've ever seen.
chadboban  +   875d ago
Glad they did this.

Dear Nintendo, now is really not the time to be a**holes and piss people off. Get it together and don't let stuff like this happen again, it just damages your public image and you really can't afford that right now. I'm really happy for the Smash community right now!

Very good. Was real worried.

All the big web sites better report this/
Starbucks_Fan  +   875d ago
IGN did

Dude, that was for charity too even think about cancelling it is like wow. You guys are very forgiving fast. Good job they did it, but what ? I'm suppose to forget you tried to get it canceled, this is common sense shit we are talking about, lol.

Its like I'm chilling with this kid he waits for me to turn my back to grab my wallet that i left on the table I turn around fast he went back to acting like my friend.

Doesn't mean they still aren't massive d**** for doing this in the first place. They just didn't want bad publicity

Seriously...thats it....all is forgiven.

If MS/Sony did this people would have their heads on a spike

All of the big three are huge D**** for a lot of things you know. I can name a lot of things that MS and Sony have done that should not be forgiven.
Mr_Nuts  +   875d ago
and no one has forgotten them...Xbox One reveal/DRM stuff prime example which has happened just recently.

Yeah they might not respond straight away and I'm p***** off still at MS but it's more about the fans....Nintendo die hards go along like everything is fine and dandy and nothing is wrong when thats not the case and if Nintendo do something selfish as this they are forgiven because they do a U turn which they only did because they didn't want any negativity brought onto the company.
We just don't go along pretending like they didn't happen.

Difference between MS and Nintendo is that Nintendo addressed the issue within what, 4 hours?

MS just stays quiet and when they speak, its unclear and makes matters worse.
Root  +   875d ago
Not the point though is it, they still did it. I think the guy above is talking more about the blind fans rather then the companies and how fast they respond to them.

In all honesty, the used games/DRM thing with MS is A LOT worse than Nintendo Denying an organization to stream a fighting games that's over ten years old.
animegamingnerd  +   875d ago
glad they came to their senses with this incident quickly
Lionalliance  +   875d ago
I still wonder why they wanted to do this in the first place...

Maybe EVO should contact Nintendo first before steaming a game 2 generations old. If they would have just asked....this wouldn't have happened.
Hicken  +   875d ago
Are you seriously defending this?

Who the hell else would even CARE about a game 2 generations old?
Theyellowflash30  +   874d ago
Obviously Nintendo. EVO has left off Smash Bros for years. With the people who run it often dissing Smash for not being a real fighting game.

It only got in because of a charity donation. Now they want to stream Nintendo's game and make money off it.

I would have told those smug bastards to kick rocks. But that's just me, I'm salty like that. EVO doesn't respect Smash Bros as a fighting game.

Nintendo fans just donated enough money to be in it this year.

You're not so evil after all! ;P
Hicken  +   875d ago
Good Job, Nintendo!

No, I mean it this time.
Sgt_Slaughter  +   875d ago
Literally called this about 1-2 hours ago...

So now everything's back to normal.
TheVideoGamHer  +   875d ago
At times like these I really appreciate Miiverse and other social media.
ThaBlackBaron  +   875d ago
Um It seems Nintendo really didnt have the full details behind this situation, cause it was for a GOOD cause, and theres NO WAY nintendo would block that..So im not surprised here..seem like a case of miscommunication
swice  +   874d ago
There are a lot of misinformed assholes on this thread.

There is a difference between "you need our permission to stream" vs " you can't stream".

They never cancelled the Smash tourney, they only put a hold on the streaming.

The amount of agrees that misinformed people are getting is kind of disturbing.

No I don't have a source at hand, but I read it. Go find it yourself
