Nintendo files lawsuit against HackYourConsole

Post by Luma Party on Wed Aug 07, 2013 5:18 pm

"In the ongoing global fight against video game piracy, Nintendo of America Inc., has filed a lawsuit in the Southern District of Florida against the owner of HackYourConsole.com. The site blatantly promotes and sells unauthorized Nintendo games along with devices and services that circumvent the security in the Nintendo DS system and the Wii console.
The operator of HackYourConsole.com has developed a global business focused on selling unauthorized copies of Nintendo games and game-copying devices (such as the R4 device) used to circumvent the technological protection measures contained in the Nintendo DS family of hand-held systems. The website operator, for a fee, also provides services to hack and modify the Wii console and allow the play of illegal software.
HackYourConsole.com also claims to be an authorized distributor for the yet-to–be-released 3DS Gateway cards. The Gateway device is promoted as operating similar to the R4 game copier for the Nintendo DS, which facilitates the play of illegally downloaded games. Game copying devices, such as the R4, severely undermine the sales of video games created by thousands of developers."
“Piracy on the Nintendo DS system has a huge impact on games sales,” said Jools Watsham, co-founder and director of Renegade Kid. “It can affect everyone involved, including the many honest players out there. If independent studios, like ours, are unable to recoup the money they invest into game development, through the sales of their games, we will unfortunately see fewer independent games developed in the future.”
"Illegal copying of video game software is an international problem that continues to stifle the growth of the creative development community. Companies such as Nintendo, various law enforcement authorities and trade organizations such as the Entertainment Software Association, continue to take aggressive steps to prevent the proliferation of these devices on a global scale."


Good for Nintendo.
Hope they get some good money out of this, and that HackYourConsole gets shut down.

Well I suppose that is a good thing, as long as they win. (I'm sure they will anyway...) Won't stop hacking and pirating entirely, but it would certainly help.

As someone who does pirate video games, I care not for either outcome. Nintendo can suck the money out of these nitwits for all I care or lose and stay fine anyway.(Nintendo's a big ass company. why the f**k should they care?)

Which I'm sure Nintendo actually doesn't. It's just a business ploy.

^Unknown, you don't sell pirated/hacked games or devices or SD Cards.

Pirating/hacking is one thing but hen selling it is a bit much.

Nintendo seems to have won this lawsuit, and hackyourconsole.com is now offline.

Yay...
