There´s a huge difference between “attacking” someone, and “criticizing” someone. But apparently, that´s something which Polygon needs to work on.

Because they accused Pewdiepie of attacking Nintendo for their “Nintendo creators program” just recently (Polygon named their article “Pewdiepie attacks Nintendo sharing Youtube ad revenue”).

And it didn´t take long before Pewdiepie called Polygon out via Twitter on that statement, which is false according to Pewdiepie himself.

Polygon got corrected by Pewdiepie himself.

In fact, this is a part of Pewdiepie´s so called “Attack on Nintendo” post via tumblr:

“First off all, they have every right to do this and any other developer / publisher have as well. There’d be no “let’s play” without the game to play. And we (YouTubers) are humble to this fact.

But what they are missing out on completely is the free exposure and publicity that they get from YouTube / YouTubers. What better way to sell / market a game, than from watching someone else (that you like) playing it and enjoying themselves?

This is why a tiny one man indie game like Minecraft could grow into a 2.5 billion dollar deal. That’s 2.5 billion… Made possible, largely because of the exposure it got from YouTube!”Pewdiepie

And as you can see, that´s not an attack on Nintendo. It´s nothing more than critique and suggestions for improvements on the behalf of Nintendo.

But you could always read the full thing vie Pewdiepie´s tumblr page, and form your own opinion.
