I should have specified NoE, sorry. Either way, it's a completely ridiculous policy. Nintendo's online plan always seems to be take 1 step forward, 2 steps back.


I'm pretty sure selling 16/18 games to minors is illegal...

I think Nintendo's just trying to prevent problems with whoever...ugh, I dunno, I'm so sleepy right now.

selling mature games to minors is not illegal, there are no laws for that. The ESRB is simply a guideline system

It may be in europe, if it contains nudity for example.

Actually, while the ESRB is a guideline, in some countries such as the UK itself, they are bringing in age guidelines enforced by law. Here in the UK, the BBFC are enforcing the age ratings now.

Nintendo should offer full refunds from their own pockets if this bs is true.

You can only get non Toddler things between 11pm and 3am apparently. You know how those kids do love to be around at 3:01am
