What's up with Nintendo fanboys? Being an unpaid shill for corporations is sadly pretty normal in gaming culture but the levels of dick-sucking that fans of Nintendo reach are incredible, to the point of celebrating every time a website is DMCA'd or even when pirates go to jail. It's pretty cultish behavior.

Nintendo is a mafia, that happens to sell video games. They really do behave like a mafia, they have an entire division of people that stalk and intimidate people they don't like they are remarkably evil shitheads, but you wouldn't expect it because the toys they are making look so innocent and they wear corporate suits, but not all mafia has to look like Yakuza gang-fighters. Nintendo hires a lot of marketing click-farms and bot accounts to make it appear as if they have a lot more support than they actually do. The people that celebrate the persecution of techies who unlock the personal property of Nintendo customers are mostly fake, or bullied by Nintendo's abuse of the legal system.

Remember piracy is something that involves stealing ships on the ocean, and DRM is something that tries to interfere with your ownership of the things you bought. It doesn't stop behavior that extremist ideologues consider illegal, and it's not meant to, the purpose is fucking over the customer. "Intellectual property" doesn't really exist, legally it's a monopoly on the reproduction of information. Ideologically it's somewhere between feudalism and cartel capitalism and even a lot of the bourgeoisie opposes intellectual cartel monopolies because it is against free market competition principles.

There is a lot of moral confusion, it's morally bad to restrict users in the way they use their computers, it's morally wrong to include malicious features into software and hardware that spy on people or break functionality, it's not morally wrong to share culture with your friends, that's literally a survival necessity for social species.

It seems as if Valve is trying to do a portable games console that is slightly less locked down, and as a result it will have a lot more success, and nintendo will look like a dinosaur. Here is how that goes: Games are fun for a few years and then the game mechanics become repetitive, and feel like work, even the addictive properties of games can only delay people turning away from it. But after game mechanics become stale the most fun thing you can do with games is play around with mods, and for many people that never gets old, if you grow out of modding you can level up to programming games. Valve still does crap drm and monopoly licensing, but they welcome mods and their portable games console will allow users to install their own software.

If somebody is clever enough to make money with libre open source games, they will get an even bigger more dedicated community than what exists now with modding and games journalism, it is going to be even more powerful. It is possible to do this under capitalism, but it will definitely happen under socialism. It's basically that the material conditions have changed, we now have very cheap and fast networks and that benefits a very open model, and we will see what system can adapt the best to these conditions. If China moves up to a higher stage of socialism they might be first, valve may also be in the race after-all they embraced using Linux as their operating system.

The nintendo fan Stockholm syndrome is a loosing bet against open platform stuff. Nintendo is just a hold over from the past, today new companies could not operate like that. The reason they have to be so aggressive and utterly shit is because they are going against reality.

Decades of propaganda do that to you. Yesterday I opened the newspaper my parents tend to read. Every other article was globohomo, climate change, controversy related to gossip etc. Do you feel special for being more than average? They live in YOUR head OP. People need religion in their lives. They need to believe Science, or God, or a corporation's good will. You're special. You can look behind the curtain. Good on you OP.

Even more of a dinosaur. They still use Netscape and they only started using AWS for their MMO games like a year or two ago for Monster Hunter. They were using a notoriously outdated multiplayer server system before that.

It's like Disney. They have the corporate machine that protects their interests, and that includes the other side, which is the high-quality teams of artisans they recruit to make a product that keeps people coming back despite the bullshit.

Brand loyalty is not exclusive to any brand, but by its very nature it is a bit different for each brand, because different brands make different things (this is the whole point) and ask you to consume different things and/or in different ways.
