So, Crunchy:



After fans voiced their displeasure at a new Nintendo game, Nintendo disabled likes and dislikes on one of their YouTube videos.


In a shocking display of contempt for consumers, Nintendo not only refuses to acknowledge the feedback of their consumers, but is actively working to prevent consumers being informed by the reception of their product. As many gamers and consumers in general rely on YouTube and social media for getting their information about a product, this is part of a worrying trend in the attempts of companies to silence the voice of consumers on social media.


Perhaps dropping pre-orders of Nintendo games is a way to send them feedback they cannot ignore. Or buying Nintendo games used, not new. What ways do you think consumers have to get their voices heard when actions like this are taken by companies?

Youtube likes aren't really a good metric for...much of anything though. And they never have been. Organized dislike campaigns as well as botting can and has run pretty rampant on the site.

Now if they were trying to silence reviewers that would be one thing. But disabling youtube likes is a pretty normal practice for pretty much any uploader.

well its good to have votes and comments on but some places it can be nothing worth having, but when they do it so you can't have an opinion or that they dislike others opinion about it, it will come negative about why they did it.

like for instant those who gives like to any BS or those who don't do anything just watch content.
So to know what got a postive feedback or negative can help most people that creates content or plays/shows content and what they should focus on or what others think they are better at (drawing, talking, sharing and a whole lot more)

Meh Nintendo and Japanese gaming at large is pretty fascist in their approach to anything even remotely related to publicity. It's why I have largely stopped buying Japanese games. That and their racist policies in refusing to release anything over here.

I admit, it's been 6 years and I am underwhelmed. Though seriously, who gets feedback from youtube comments? They're shit.

It's not just youtube comments. Japanese gaming has been known to have a go at any media outlets that paint them in less than a favorably light. And god help ya if you try to make a let's play vid using a Japanese game.

Memes on top, serious things mid lane, while random things below.
Some comments are really good some are not and somtimes its good to have a crowd so they bring a different tone when they are the first to comment leading how the rest will be unless they have such an negative rep or else to bring anooying/negative comments insted of good/helpfull ones.

Even though some likes to have their own threads about it so random people can't say all nonsense but agian things like this seems more and more like they want to hide things or other viewers/creators/opinions then anything else.
Like Sega, nintendo and more?
And I wish they could do more feedback themselfs as to why something is the way that it are (either a game unfinished or never fixed, etc) or as to why these things is NOT supported for either this tech, language or other things as to why there is a problem leaving consumers money as a money grab without support/game/entertainment.

Ah, I see. Examples? I mean, oh noes, silencing likes on youtube while allowing comments! Is this really the best example?
