A new initiative by Nintendo allows players on Wii U, the company’s latest gaming console, to upload their game-play footage directly to YouTube.
The deal comes after Nintendo controversially flagged thousands of game-play clips uploaded to YouTube and blocked content creators from collecting ad revenues. Under the planned affiliate program, earnings will be split among Nintendo, Google (which owns YouTube) and the content creator. Exactly how the cash will be divided has yet to be disclosed.
Nintendo posted its third consecutive annual loss last month following disappointing holiday sales.
