    Are the keys that nintendo and half the people are claiming that is illegal to sell, are they installed on the chip or in the free downloadable boot.dat?

    Maybe he wasn't paying for attention about it in 2016. When the US and the Dominican Republic signed a extradite agreement.

    Nintendo became so boring when Bowser came along. All you hear about are law suits, and he never appears in any announcement videos. Bring back Reggie - My body is ready.

    Distributing for free is illegal too. Coupled with the cart, which they give you instructions on how to bypass DRM by downloading their "free" boot.dat, which by the way requires a paid license to operate and also contains more copyright violations than the keys because of how some of it was coded.

    Plus the subscription service they offered for downloading illegal game content.

    They are kinda screwed every which way. If they don't plea out then I'll be interested in how they try to argue out of it.

    40% "nintendo bad"

    I mean, he did work at EA from 2007 to 2015, so no wonder he's a borefest.

    Not anymore in Saudi Arabia, they made new law against piracy and selling them.
    Also good luck in Syria, there is no electricity there, my relatives live there (what left of them) and the electricity only come from 6pm to 10PM from special line that can provide 1Amp for each house.

    Nintendo will turn to Bowser during the trial and say "All you base belong to us".
    Bowser will turn to the judge and say "Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A.".
    Judge will dismiss the case.
    It's like going after all knife manufacturers because someone got stabbed.

    I bet overall Bowser win more often than Mario in all their encounters. In all games the bad guy normally win more often that the good guy. It's call grind.

    Out of the countries on the list it would make sense not to choose warzones, undeveloped countries or countries with strict religious laws.

    China, Russia, Ukraine,Taiwan and Vietnam would be my list

    China is now selling Nintendo devices and games, if it brings them profit, they will make it hard for you:

    --


    Anyway, in case it's not obvious, I hate piracy.
    When I was young I used to pirate a lot and that pretty much killed my interest in games.
    I have no issues with homebrew (although I won't use such a thing until a system starts dying out), but in this case team xecuter pushed things too far. Advertising piracy among other stuff they did was too much.

    They deserve whatever happens, although sadly, they didnt get most of the members.
