    After hacking Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. edition Game & Watch, showing how to do so, and even getting other games to run on it--DOOM among them, YouTuber stacksmashing has found some of their tutorials removed from the site. Two of the user's videos involving hacking the system were taken down from YouTube via copyright claims from Nintendo. Stacksmashing decided to fire back at Nintendo, by disputing the claims, and in the meantime, uploading highly edited video where he pokes fun at the company for going after his content. He plans to re-upload the removed videos in the future by blurring out any official gameplay footage, which according to the copyright claim, is the "reason" they were taken down.

    Not the first time (they once pinged a Wii mod chip review around here) but they do seem to have stepped it up in recent years, even for things that are more general how it was done rather than step by step.

    Not particularly sure what basis they have for this, and don't like it even being an option.

    Move on over to hardened sites lads.

    Daily reminder that if you buy and/or support Nintendo you are low-key ok with this.

    You can apply that to almost every product sold, with the possible exception of your local farmers' market. If you buy and/or support Apple, or Amazon, or Coca-Cola, or Microsoft, or Nike, or watch NBA games, or purchase/subscribe from any other company with significant investment in China, you are low-key ok with Uygher slave labor. A lot of big corporations (Nike, Coca-Cola, etc) have even engaged in big $$ lobbying against legislation that would require disclosure of whether a product was produced from forced Uygher labor.

    It's hard being a virtuous consumer.

    I got one of those game and watch with a slightly scalped price of $54. it's new in box as I haven't opened it. I haven't opened my fire emblem 30th anniversary either (bought the game on the eshop too).

    Excellent nintendo. Continue acting like that so I would have more and more reason not to pay for your games and just download them for free.
    Don't be surprised if nintendo gonna close the switch hacking section on this website as well.

    I had a preview video of emuMMC before it released and a year after release it was taken down for circumvention of technological measures, I appealed and won, then was taken down the next day, and because you can't appeal twice I lost. The strike didn't say who instigated it but I can guess...

    So yeah even if it's open source and just a preview video they'll still win

    The better question is why do Nintendo care it's only like $50. They already put a muzzle on SXOS this seems like a waste of resources

    it actually retails for like $50-$60 so that's not even scalped, you just paid retail price plus a tiny bit less considering taxes lol

    LMAO at least the guy is taking in stride. This and the music takedowns are way beyond the pale. Nintendo's legal team needs to pull the sticks out of their asses.

    Yeah, I'm not sure it's worth the price even with all the features you can unlock by hacking it. I mean, you can get a Wii for less than that.

    actually, they sued ebay auctioneers for selling nes or snes minis loaded with games. last time I checked, there were still a lot of those auctions though.

    Yeah normally there's a lot to consider regarding avoiding corporate shit, and people are often a few degrees removed from scummy practices, but in the case of GBATemp specifically, I'd argue there's far more a direct connection with Nintendo attacking the interests of this particular community.

    I certainly have no intentions of getting a switch myself any time soon.
