Hardware modding isn't even illegal. That's like not being allowed to take apart the toaster you bought.

Wait, that's why they were prying into this guy's life like that? That's even worse! I thought when they said "hacking" they meant they were screwing with Nintendo's personal data or something.

So they hired a private investigator to look into a guy who may have caused direct or indirect fiscal damages and decided to go with a constructive solution to the problem

I’m not sure that’s something unique to big businesses or Nintendo, though I do get how something like this could be abused.

Could be abused? People have a right to privacy, invading it is an abuse by itself. At least Nintendo only wanted to recruit them, there's a precedent of companies doing far worse.

The fiscal damages argument are shaky, the same has been said about piracy when there's no real evidence that it meaningfully hurts sales. I know people who bought a DS with the explicit purpose of putting a flash card.

As far as I can tell all he's done is made it possible to do homebrew s*** with nintendo handhelds. I guess he "hacked" when he looked into the code of the device he bought or was sent. Now that homebrew stuff does allowfor piracy to happen on consoles but only in the same way that giving someone a car allows for drunk driving

Wait, I’m not sure where you got that he was just hardware modding?

Also going to add that this is just an image of a word doc they’ve claimed is an internal Nintendo document, written in English.

Wouldn’t be surprised if it was at least partially true though
Why so bananas about it?

If you can show me evidence he was stealing Nintendo's data or trying to get user IPs or w/e I'll retract my statement. As far as I'm aware he just worked with homebrew and hardware mods

I was just asking. I’m out of the loop on this. Otherwise he could at least be a material witness.

I dunno what to say. Private investigation is a thing. And none of this is outside of that scope apparently. Individuals, corporations, governments, and small businesses all hire them for a variety of reasons.

Ah okay. Yeah the guy they were going after was Neimod, he was one of the bigger players in the handheld homebrew scene back in the early 2010s and was a mod for gbatemp.
