I can’t believe what Nintendo just said! In a statement to respond to information campaign launched by Defective by Design the company said:
Nintendo would like to reassure any concerned consumers that under our European terms and conditions and in compliance with European requirements Nintendo does not have rights to user content, such as comments, messages, images, photos or movies, which are shared in private communications between users or simply stored on Nintendo 3DS.
So, they’re admitting that parts of the terms of service of Nintendo 3DS are so horrible that they’re not even legal in Europe! No mention about the rest of the world, where such terms may be legal but equally immoral!
And the company doesn’t mention the fact that even if you buy the hardware they can wipe it out remotely and make it impossible for you to use it anymore.
Shame on you, Nintendo, shame on you.
