Apparently, if cancellation is really across the industry, Nintendo doesn’t think so. This is a kind of abuse of power.
Just like the current law that prohibits replaying games if they have been “used”. Read: I mean launch new physical purchases into the box.
It used to be to prevent piracy, but nowadays the level of piracy is so high that it is practically impossible to copy a game. However, you are not allowed to return physical games. Although the digital store offers the option to cancel a digital order during this time period, the physical disc may not be returned to the store once the plastic has been removed. Weird, weird, in the year 2023, you might be wondering with Cyberpunk 2077 if it’s even legal, especially if you’re bringing it back for playability’s sake.
Only there will also be people abusing their return period, so I don’t see it changing anytime soon.
I understand how to combat piracy – though I wish you could test something more easily to see if it works for you. Especially in games that still cost 60-90 € and after 10 minutes you think: no, not that thing. Investigating gameplay can often be difficult with online trailers that are either “mock” or completely directed (think Rainbow Siege / Division1 trailers)
One solution is demos but you see them in the wild 30/70
Aside from that, Dolphin thinks it’s a nice project to be able to play your old games on hardware that works instead of old hardware that’s no longer sold or hard to make. For example, I’m happy with Emudeck and Nintendo has followed suit too with this site that hosts screenshots of your games. No matter how you feel about Rom. It’s a shame that Nintendo is hunting down young individuals so hard while your target audience is begging for a new console, eg LTT explains it very well in their video in which they criticize Nintendo for their “piracy” policy.
I don’t have a single rom dump of a game that I haven’t actually purchased either. But it’s one thing to take 6 mobile devices with me on vacation, so I see simulations as a solution.
If the companies were going to make/host this themselves I would 100% buy it, but unfortunately they haven’t and even threw the old online stores offline. Sony is back a bit if you have the higher level, I don’t follow the XB much and Nintendo is 100% against it.
Just put it online version 1.0 and then pay 2.0 to upgrade. fine. Do I also have to pay the developer for new features with software bundles on my Mac, because he should also be able to buy bread.
In short, Nintendo can buy Dolphin because there seems to be a demand that they themselves are not filling.
@ch4os don’t you mention it already? You even bring the game which is why this is being quoted.
It used to be to combat piracy, but nowadays the bar for piracy is set so high that it is practically impossible to copy a game. However, you are not allowed to return physical games. Although the digital store offers the option to cancel a digital order within a very long time, A physical disc may not be returned to the store once the plastic has been removed. Weird, weird, in the year 2023, you might be wondering with Cyberpunk 2077 if it’s even legal, especially if you’re bringing it back for playability’s sake. ”
