Episode 21 – Steam Winter Sale, Nintendo vs. Soulja Boy

recorded on 2019-01-04


Steam Winter sale is over, had the idea to list off our best deals but it was too late…but we’ll have you covered next time!
Next big sale will be Summer (tentatively June-July)
Legal action by Nintendo against Soulja Boy
(who would have guessed?…Literally everyone but Soulja Boy apparently)
Chinese knock-off emulator consoles with Soulja’s brand playing old Nintendo game
Nintendo has zero tolerance for this, if you threaten or steal their IP, you’re fucked
A couple in Arizona sued earlier this year (march 2018) for over $12MILLION for running an emulator website
running ads and asking for donations is what really fucked them
All “Soulja” game consoles pulled from stores and his website
