Nintendo's business practices

From Crappy Games Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Note: This article only focuses on Nintendo's business decisions, focusing mostly on Nintendo of America, as they're not a bad company aside from that aforementioned American division.

Critics, fans and other game devs do what Nintendon't.

Nintendo (JP: 任天堂) is a Japanese company founded in 1889 as a playing card company. It is now among the most well-known video game companies of all time, making not only consoles but among some the most beloved I.P.s of all time. Unfortunately, their modern business practices, most of them attributed to their American division, Nintendo of America, have been rather cruel.

Why Their Business Practices Suck

NOTE: DON'T SAY/ADD THAT THIS DOWNFALL WAS CAUSED BY ELECTRONIC ARTS, WE KNOW THAT DOUG BOWSER ONCE TO USED TO WORK IN EA, BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN EA TOO.

  1. They've treated their fans with strong disrespect and contempt.
    • It also seems that their American branch, under Doug Bowser, possibly care more about money than the fans and sometimes even the games.
  2. Their mobile game Mario Kart Tour has microtransactions and loot boxes, and even has a Gold Pass that's even more expensive than Nintendo Switch Online. Not long after, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp added not one, but two subscription-based services within the game that is just as, if not, more expensive than Mario Kart Tour's gold pass.
  3. They will shutdown their mobile games after 1-2 years after it was made, if you spent money on one of the apps that shutdown. You would lose that money spent on the game.
  4. They've taken lots of measures against third parties that have tried to work with them to create eSport events for Super Smash Bros., all because they simply don't see the game that way.
  5. They wrote a cease and desist order to The Big House, a Smash competition event for using a mod called Slippi, which would allow Melee to use rollback netcode. To make matters worse, when a lot of top competitors in a Splatoon 2 tournament showed their support for the Big House and the rest of the Smash community under the #FreeMelee movement, Nintendo cancelled their live stream of the event. This possibly shows that Doug Bowser cannot handle negative criticism.
  6. They are way too overprotective of their IPs and have written lots of C&D orders to fanmade games as well, while justified since Nintendo owns the rights and they could lose their trademarks when the creators illegally profit off their IPs (for example, Pokémon Brick Bronze), they take them down in a harsh way.
    • They even copyright claim videos just for showing gameplay of their games, when some of these videos can possibly benefit Nintendo such as reviews recommending the game. For example, in July 2020, Shesez, creator of Boundary Break, criticized Nintendo's decision to use the Content ID system to claim the copyright for one of his videos about Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Rather than claiming the ad revenue for this video, the video was globally blocked.
    • They also removed the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! Reanimated Collab on YouTube, but the creators of the project claim that it was an imposter. However, it is still on Newgrounds.
    • On February 5th, 2021, they ordered a cease-and-desist on SuperMarioLogan/SuperBowserLogan due to using Mario plushes for raunchy humor, misdirecting audiences, and profiting by doing this, which forced Logan to rebrand his whole channel and use human puppets of his characters instead. While this might be justified due to misuse of the Mario franchise, the timing for this seems rather odd when most of the controversies of SML was already done years before this C&D occurred.
  7. In 2015, they launched the infamous creator's program, which would allow Nintendo to take a quarter of ad-revenue from videos that use their content This copyright system has received extreme controversy and backlash since it basically took down a plenty of gameplay videos even if they fell under fair use, causing the Nintendo Creator's Program to be shut down for good 3 years later.
    • And even though they shut it down, they keep continuing on filling false copyright claims on YouTube.
  8. They released a Nintendo Switch update that added Google Analytics integration to the eShop that would collect user data. Nintendo remained silent about adding the feature and it's on by default, which means they’re collecting their user's data behind their backs, which is out of place for Nintendo to do this.
    • Fortunately, it's not on the European versions of the Switch since it violates a law against unauthorized data collection passed by the European Union, named General Data Protection Regulation.
  9. They even have the guts of sending C&D orders to people:
    • They wrote a C&D order to a group selling Etika themed Joy-Cons that were being sold for mental health charities and were made to honor the memory of the late Etika, even though those Joy-Cons were infringing nothing. This was before it was revealed that Captain Alex, the person behind the Etikon sales, was exposed for being a total scammer since only 10$ of each sale is sent to charity while the remaining 55$ goes straight to the seller's pockets [1].
    • On February 5th, 2021, they ordered a cease-and-desist on SuperMarioLogan/SuperBowserLogan due to using Mario plushes for raunchy humor, misdirecting audiences, and profiting by doing this, which forced Logan to rebrand his whole channel and use human puppets of his characters instead. While this might be justified due to misuse of the Mario franchise, the timing for this seems rather odd when most of the controversies of SML was already done years before this C&D occurred
  10. They use the awful artificial scarcity tactic for some products, making them a huge target for scalpers.
  11. Like Sony, they copied Microsoft's idea of making online play a paid service, and thus making online multiplayer on the main consoles not free anymore (apart from that on older consoles which is still free).
  12. They don't allow refunds on the eShop unlike other companies' online storefronts.
  13. They release ports of already existing games at full price and most of their games that have been out since. Even the Switch's launch hasn't gotten official price drops. The worst offender is Super Mario 3D All-Stars, a full priced and rushed game compilation that just emulates of three Mario games that were barely upgraded and had emulation issues at launch.
  14. It was leaked by someone in December of 2020 that Nintendo of America stalked people who mod their products. We are NOT joking.
    • Speaking of that leak, it was mentioned that 3DS hacker Neimod was fawned and indoctrinated into joining Nintendo by being provided prototypes and hardware samples for recreational use, interrogated for information and altering their response to the issue based on what he says. Provided prototype hardware for recreational purposes to discourage him from hacking Nintendo products. At the same time, coder Hector Martin also mentioned former Nintendo of America lawyer Jodi Daugherty "tracked down" the work phone of Wii homebrew hacker Bushing and called him "as an intimidatory tactic". Streamer Kaitlyn Molinas also pointed out a PR plan containing potential outcomes, including Nintendo receiving negative reputation and backlash from hackers and cyber attacks (which were all unaverted at the time of the leaks), for if "the public finds out that they hired a hacker from the homebrew scene".
    • In some states, this could actually be illegal, and would result in huge fines or other penalties. If Nintendo Of Europe attempted the same, the European Union would take serious legal action against them.
  15. Whenever they announce a Switch port of a Wii U game, they often delist it from the Wii U eShop, preventing people from buying it for cheaper. However, when Pikmin 3 got this treatment, there were enough complaints that shortly got the game back on the eShop. In fact, they even decided to get rid of Super Mario Maker on Wii U and removed the ability to share any more levels on March 31, 2021 due to the success of the sequel.
  16. They are against online distribution of ROMs of old games, even if they aren't on the market anymore. They say this is because of "piracy" reasons, but again, these are out of print games we are talking about, so whether we get that old game through a legit copy or a free ROM, Nintendo isn't making any money off of it anymore.
    • Finding a copy of an out of print game is also pretty difficult. Some copies out there on the internet are in poor condition and some of them are too expensive (especially if it's a rare game, such as Metroid Prime Hunters, where it's kinda hard to find the full game because of the former only being available as a demo).
      • Some games like Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, had very limited releases and are very expensive to find nowadays, making the option of emulating them much more appealing to many people.
    • Despite this, it has been found that the ROM contained in the Virtual Console version of Super Mario Bros. is identical to one you can download on the internet, which may mean they used a ROM from a website they consider illegal, making them complete hypocrites.
    • In addition, they took down the Super Mario Bros. Commodore 64 port in April 2019, also claiming it is "piracy" despite the game being 35 years old that not many people play anymore, on a platform that has been long discontinued, ported to another system that has been out of market for years.
      • Similarly, they also took down the native port of Super Mario 64 for the PC in 2020, also claiming that was piracy, despite the fact that that port requires a ROM of the original Super Mario 64 anyways.
    • They are also against unofficial emulators as they took some of them down[2].
  17. They've been doing a strategy where they make some of their anniversary games limited release both physically and digitally in order to scare their fans into buying them before they're gone. (Similar to the extremely infamous Disney Vault)
    • What's even worse about this, is that they've been doing it during a pandemic where lots of people are having issues with their financial stability.
  18. Although they have been doing this for years, they are recently taking down music videos on YouTube containing songs for Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda and many more, yet they won’t officially release their soundtrack to an online service officially. Almost every Mario Kart Wii music track on GilvaSunner's channel has been taken down.
  19. Although it depends on your opinion, they've recently made some of their characters including Mario (which is the company's mascot) punching bags starting from the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in 2018.
  20. Another infamous practice is that they often ignore criticism whether it's important or not.
    • Nintendo hasn't tried to improve their peer-to-peer paid online service which was already panned for being laggy especially on games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, since launch.
    • They've been ignoring the issue of Joy-Con drift and are doing very little to fix it aside from offering repairs, saying that Joy-Con drift "is not a real issue" (though it is possible that they thought it was something different)[3] which only last a few weeks before drifting again rather than re-designing the controller to remove the issue entirely (and yes, the Switch Lite still has the issue)
  21. The rerelease of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, which was essentially a repeat of the Super Mario 3D All-Stars controversy, proved that they learned nothing.
    • Not to mention, many people noted that Nintendo's translation lost all the charm that the original fan translations had. Not helping matters is that Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, which was released long prior to that translation, was marred by poor dialogue choices.
  22. Recently, they have removed some DSiWare games on the American 3DS eShop for no reason and without prior warning, which doesn't make any sense at all[4], where even the co-creator of Shantae was also upset at Nintendo for their action[5]. Thankfully, most of them were brought back a week later.
  23. Because of the above listed reasons, Nintendo has turned a large number of fans against them. In addition, it severely damaged their reputation as a company.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. This can mostly be blamed on Doug Bowser and Nintendo of America, as they've both made these terrible decisions the most.
    • He seems to have no respect for their fans at all. And to rub salt to the wound, he used to work for Electronic Arts.
  2. They discontinued the creator's program in 2018.
  3. As mentioned before, Pikmin 3's delisting treatment was shortly undone after many complaints.
    • However, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze remains delisted despite major backlash.
  4. As mentioned in WTBPS #24, they did bring back most of the DSiWare games on the US 3DS eShop.
  5. They got convinced by many fans to allow one of their popular fans, Chris Taylor, to play the E3 demo of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with his friends, as he never got a chance to go to E3 and had passed away from bone cancer before the final game's release.
  6. The four qualities mentioned above show that they at least somewhat care and listen to their fans.
  7. Despite the bad business decisions coming mostly from Nintendo of America, they still are a good company, as their games are still great, and thus, they are still good enough to continue to be on the Awesome Games Wiki.
