Nintendo is using copyright strikes to delete YouTube videos, which details how to hack recently posted videos Game and watch: Super Mario Bros. Color handheld computer.
Thanks to early retail deliveries, a hacker managed to hack into the portable device the day before its official release on November 1
As of press time, two other stacked videos about Game & Watch hacking are still going on: one of them details how to load doom Connect the port to the device, and then discuss how to dump the firmware. None of these existing videos contain images of Nintendo’s own games running on Game&Watch; in fact, one of the shots particularly blurred these shots.
Nintendo doesn’t seem to automatically aim at all Games and viewing: Super Mario Bros Game screens on YouTube; for example, you can still find a lot of videos, and you can also have copyrighted videos while watching this unit. However, Nintendo’s copyright to the game itself gave the company an incredibly broad discretion to decide whether to allow or prohibit the “performance” of those games that passed the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Unlike the NES and SNES Classic Edition consoles, it is easier to crack through a direct USB cable connection, while Game and watch: Super Mario Bros. The unit has a locked CPU, AES encrypted flash memory, and no data connection via a USB-C charger. Therefore, to invade Game&Watch, it is currently necessary to hack the system and use custom hardware to store custom firmware and self-made software.
Stacksmashing told Gizmodo that they are editing the video in question and will raise a dispute in an attempt to get them to reuse the service. Nintendo did not respond to Ars Technica’s request for comment.
