Nintendo may be getting a $2 million judgment in hacking-related case

Quite a hefty judgment

You might remember a story about Nintendo going after an online retailer which was selling a product that allowed Switch owners to play pirated games. Nintendo sent that company a cease-and-desist, and also followed up with a lawsuit. That lawsuit is nearing its end, and Nintendo looks to be set for quite a judgment.

As it stands now, retailer Uberchips will have to pay $2 million to Nintendo in damages due to the sales of the hacking product. There is also a permanent injunction that orders Uberchips to destroy any digital files or physical devices that infringe upon Nintendo’s copyrights, and the company can no longer sell similar products moving forward.

Good for Nintendo. Bad for gamefaqs users.
