Let them eat each other alive. That would be a 2 for 1 offer for saying fuck off to two giant asshole companies

[-] whodatdair@lemmy.blahaj.zone 58 points 2 months ago

Best I can do is them banding together to fuck normal people over and extract as much cash as they can

[-] NegativeInf@lemmy.world 22 points 2 months ago

Nintendo goes after individual emulators, which are now even easier to track on an app store. Takes them out, potentially extracting user information for further Bowser sized rulings against the lot of them.

[-] Wild_Mastic@lemmy.world 17 points 2 months ago

This idea is so scummy and contorted that I wouldn't be surprised if they actually implemented it.

“allows“

They've been forced to and it shows because they didn't even bother with the iPad

[-] unreasonabro@lemmy.world 52 points 2 months ago

Typical Apple behaviour, shitting in everybody else's bullshit pie while keeping their own bullshit pie completely pristine.

[-] GlitterInfection@lemmy.world 33 points 2 months ago

By allowing emulators on the app store... Apple Bad?

[-] Jax@sh.itjust.works 8 points 2 months ago

Huh, I knew that Nintendo had braindead fanboys but I'm genuinely surprised anyone thinks that corporations teaming up to kill emulation is a good thing.

*Nintendo quietly shows Apple Yuzu's corpse in their trunk while staring sternly and slowly and audibly tapping a bloody baseball bat against the ground behind their back... *

Apple showing Nintendo their mountain of cash, then cuts them from the AppStore.

[-] Squirrel@thelemmy.club 32 points 2 months ago

Yeah, I somehow doubt that Apple could be done in like Yuzu. They're in a different ballpark, league, and game.

[-] LazaroFilm@lemmy.world 10 points 2 months ago

Apple has make a lawsuit last long enough to not make it worth it money. The worst a lawsuit against Apple did is stopping sales of Apple Watches for a week.

fight asshole companies, fight

App developers are responsible for the content the emulators can include (which are called mini-apps)

So let's say I am Square Enix. I own the rights to Chrono Trigger. I can release an emulator with Chrono Trigger SNES ROM and can sell it as Chrono Trigger. I cannot have said emulator allowed to run Super Mario World, as that would get my program delisted from App Store.

This is not limited to just emulators though. We can classify the games in roblox as mini apps; so let's say if Roblox doesn't remove a game that clearly infringes copyright; they too will get removed from App Store. (Which is one of the many reasons why they try to remove the games that contain these content)

[-] thehatfox@lemmy.world 13 points 2 months ago

The wording of the new App Store rules say developers are responsible for any software offered in an app, and there's been a bit of debate going on as to what that means in practice.

I haven't heard if any emulators have or haven't passed Apple's review process yet.

Just Nintendo doing Nintendo-things.

[-] Vendul@feddit.de 11 points 2 months ago

Where can I find these emulators? I need names!

[-] hsr@lemmy.dbzer0.com 7 points 2 months ago

Looks like Delta will be one of the first, but I don't think it's available just yet.

[-] stebo02@lemmy.dbzer0.com 9 points 2 months ago

Can apple even legally do this lol

[-] DmMacniel@feddit.de 57 points 2 months ago

Emulators aren't illegal. So why shouldn't they allow it?

there are no laws against emulators. Collusion, on the other hand, there are loads of laws against that.
