Ehh @XiSasuke

1) I love your username, Sasuke is the greatest of all time

2) You're not getting paid for Internet punctuation so type at your own leisure.

3) Nintendo did warn the people months.. but did the people listen??

It's like Youtube took it upon itself to pass portions of SOPA...

This is BULLSHIT.

Aren't there any serious pushes against these upcoming changes to Youtube?
If not, WHY?

Nintendo warned every body months ago.
This is how they treat their fans' free advertising efforts.
Nothing personal though its only business.

First, Nintendo only stopped you from monetizing videos, not posting them.

Second, they reversed that same policy months ago.
Acesonnall  +   131d ago
This isn't a change in Nintendo policies.

This seems to be affecting a huge variety of games from loads of different companies and not just from Nintendo. It's all on youtube's end. I wonder what the youtube alogrithm is searching for?

Also, it looks like let's players who got copyright claims against them today are now getting pretty much any new video they post automatically flagged.

Please read the article before making sweeping generalizations. Youtube's content ID matcher penalizes videos Nintendo commissioned, because it's not a person looking into it. It's an algorithm. GameXplain, Nintendomination et al will get ID matched everytime, and Google has to sort it out later.
miyamoto  +   131d ago
LoL at the damage control!

So it just "magically appeared" in YouTube's system with out no one enabling this so called algorithm, is that what you are saying? really?

Tell me who else would put those claim for copyright for their own IPs, YT, Google?

Come on! How much "insanity" can you Nintendo extremists go through just to suck it up?

*facepalm

I actually like it. No more spoil game and everyone will have to buy their game.
KonsoruMasuta  +   131d ago
If you don't want the game spoiled, don't watch the video! How hard is that?

And the videos help people come to the conclusion to buy the game. First thing I do before I buy a game is look at gameplay!

If a game is spoiled by a video it's probably not a very good game in the first place.
grimmweisse  +   131d ago
Then don't watch the videos, it is really that simple! Clicking on a video that might spoil it for you, means you went out of you way to actually click on the link. Your fault! Stop being an impulsive clicker!

Do you want articles and wikipedia pages banned too?
plsburydoughboy  +   131d ago
Again, to make things clear, this is not removing any Nintendo fan videos.
Knightshade  +   131d ago
And when it's a video review that shows the game in question and Youtube kills it, what then? Every review I post gets flagged by Youtube, almost invariably.
_QQ_  +   131d ago
For people who can't read, this isn't just on Nintendo Videos.
thebudgetgamer  +   131d ago
If they can't read how will they read that?
_QQ_  +   131d ago
selective readers*
SilentNegotiator  +   131d ago
I wish I could understand what people were writing. But atlas, I am an illiterate. Woe is me! Confound my ignorance to the digestion of literature!
ScubaSteve1  +   131d ago
So no more lets plays
plsburydoughboy  +   131d ago
No, Nintendo Let's Plays aren't being removed.
AJBACK2FRAG  +   131d ago
Too bad.
