Wait how can nintendo force-delete your games? I mean I could see revoking your rights to redownload them, but wiping them off your system? That's way intrusive as fuck.
I mean just curious but couldn't Nintendo intentionally brick your system/otherwise lock you out of it if they were upset with you about something?
If any of those were recent purchases, I'd try a chargeback. Probably wouldn't work but would be worth a shot.
Afaik he bought them all with money redeemed from the SMTIV+FE thing. Meaning it... wasn't actually 'real' money?
In an case:
1) If you're only allowed to redeem the code once, why doesn't it just stop you when you try to redeem a second one?
2) Why wasn't this caught until after he'd already purchased stuff?
3) And the main one I already mentioned... HOW THE HELL DO THEY HAVE THAT KIND OF ACCESS TO HIS SYSTEM, THAT THEY COULD REMOVE STUFF FROM IT REMOTELY?
Then again I guess we're in an age where console makers can selectively block legit games from running on their hardware if they, say, got mad at a certain developer. Or if they wanted to force people to upgrade their hardware.
Which is illegal but who's going to take them to court over it?
