  • The Terms of Service for the Nintendo 3DS grant Nintendo full rights to use any user-created content on the 3DS — including photos taken with it.

    There was a related, non-video game post on BoingBoing a few days ago that talked about similar rights issues for photo hosting sites. Despite being an avid user of Flickr, i find this sort of thing (including the Nintendo issue that you mentioned in the post) distressing. Granted, they own the service so it is within their rights to stipulate this sort of thing but it always strikes me as a bad practice nonetheless.

  • Thanks Stav, that was really interesting. I like that there were certain threads that kept coming up over all of the interviews such as Valve’s corporate and development culture as well as the company’s mobile gaming strategy (or lack thereof). It felt (and probably was) way more honest than most of your typical PR-based interviews.
