Because gamers seem to spend almost as much time on YouTube WATCHING stuff about games as they do actually playing them... If not more

It's why annoying f***s like PewDiePie got famous and why we have random joe-schmoes on YouTube getting tech earlier than the public. This kind of thing happens because it's a valid business strategy. Remember the Stanley Parable? The Game Grumps got special treatment for an early release so far as to have their names mentioned by the in-game announcer when they did an early play through of a level. The devs did that because they knew the Game Grumps were popular.

I think the entire "YouTube" celebrity scene is annoying. Not for actual content creators, such as animators and the like, but when joe-nobody gets famous, rich and preferential treatment from game companies just for being the lucky joe-nobody out of a thousand joe-nobodies that got noticed and then built up a subscriber-base... Well that annoys the piss out of me.

someone's bitter and pathetic.
Even my most peaceful and calm posts are somehow designed to belittle those that disagree with me even a little, get used to it~!

They get review copies so they can release videos that build hype. If they don't make said review videos, Nintendo will simply stop sending them review copies of systems/games

You might need to head to the emergency room! Seems like with all this salt you have stage 2 hypertension

I wasn't serious so take a joke and shut the f*** up.

Language, young man, language...

Also, you do realize I was joking as well, right?

Ok cool but all I got from that was an insult so I fired back, but apparently that makes me an "internet tough guy". Whatever TullyBlanchard, I dont see how that came off as a tough guy act. Its not like I went in talking s*** to anyone first.

I watched Tetra Ninjas video and he said he has to send it back next week. It's not like they get to keep it.

Nintendo, always out of touch, they have to make a profit on every unit or Miyamoto will cry.
