Nintendo’s New Youtube Affiliate Program

Nintendo, Nintendo, Nintendo. It definitely hasn’t been a kind year for them but now there are rearing their heads again. You guys remember last year when they were claiming ad revenue on any Let’s Play with their games? Well they haven’t necessarily changed their minds but what they have implemented is a new affiliate system.

What this basically means is that the overall ad revenue will have a three way split between Nintendo, the creator and Google. However, it’s not a guarantee as the creator would have to seek permission from Nintendo.

Now as much as I would love to play the angry fanboy here I can’t automatically make that commitment. I do understand that these games are a business no matter how you slice it. I am curious as to whether this system would carry over to reviews as well. Anyways what do you guys think about all this?
