Can Nintendo see what websites I go on while using Wii U's Web Browser?

#11kjellboyPosted 1/18/2013 5:35:31 AM
Yes they do. I was just for the sake of beign random, visiting the website TPB. And one day later some Nintendo people came on a visit. They threatened to steal the Wii U and would make sure I would never be able to buy another one if I ever went to the same website again. :'(

I hope so! With all the Princess Peach/Daisy/Rosalina/Zelda and Samus rule 34 I look at then maybe they'll see that they need to release "Nintendolls" which is basically a Nintendo themed version of DoA Extreme Volleyball.

Don't worry, TC... Bloodshows is only illegal based on the country you live in. If they allow it, you're golden. ;)

Companies monitor what you click on, do, and where you go to "provide a better user experience". Half the time they don't really pay attention but the information can be useful for updates and whatnot.
