Earlier this week we talked about Nintendo banning players who downloaded an illegal copy of Pokémon Sun and Moon. Nintendo has now released an official statement on the matter:

“As a result of a number of Nintendo 3DS users using unauthorized versions of several games, and connecting to the official game servers in violation of our terms of service, these users’ Nintendo 3DS systems that stored the unauthorized game code have been banned from Nintendo’s online network effective immediately.”

Does the punishment fit the crime? Nintendo thinks so. Many people that have been looking forward to this game, unbeknownst to them, have stumbled across spoilers. This has unfortunately ruined the experience for many players. Pokémon Sun and Moon is set to release tomorrow.
