Really Nintendo? Really??

The guys at kotaku are reporting on the guy who was the first to leak New Super Mario Bros. Wii online. Nintendo found him cuz they were able to “employ the use of sophisticated technological forensics”….whatever. The pisser is that they’re ordering the guy to pay 1.3 mil “to compensate Nintendo for the loss of sales revenue caused by the individual’s actions.” Come on Nintendo, the effin game sold over 10 million copies, most games today are lucky to sell a tenth that amount. Sure, piracy is illegal blah blah blah….if they were hurtin, I’d understand a fine and all that, but this is outrageous. While I don’t share the same hate for the game as my partner-n-crime, he makes alot of good points that can’t be argued…this whole lawsuit business just might push it in that category for me though.
