A campaign by gamers unhappy at the latest ‘draconian’ personal data storage measures has been launched.

According to its terms and conditions, Nintendo legally owns all its users content – including messages, information and images. It also logs personal data such as names, ages and addresses that are valuable for marketing.

Angry 3DS owners said on Thursday that they were sending cardboard bricks to Nintendo in protest at the policy.

That's about as useful as Anonymous sending Sony pizzas.

I could personally care less, but that goes for anything I own. I own an iPod Touch as well, and I'm sure there's data being sent and stored, but as long as I'm not having hitmen sent to my house or other stupid shit like that, I don't care.

If this were really a fact, then people would have been complaining about this much sooner rather than now.

I don't give the source much credit at all.

I'd like to know what the legalities of this are.

So why do you care?

You are contradicting yourself. You care and don't care at the same time.

So if I buy a 3DS Nintendo owns all the game saves on the device, all the pictures I took with the device, all the notes and messages I've sent to friends and, crucially, any games I have purchased in the 3DSware store and saved on my device? BULLSHIT!!!!

Meh whatever it's their hand-held, they have the right to put in any policies they want, we us buyers must take into account that when we are adopting a hand-held/console from a particular company, we must abide the rules and respect the policies, if we can't, don't buy it all. No one gets hurt.
