Here’s something you don’t see every day. Estimated people playing a video game in Japan will be able to log in to the Nintendo Switch store, alter the avatar of their gift, create a PayPal account and accumulate purchases on the credit card of their gift.
E todo isso apparently fue transmitted a o vivo pela internet.
The fish in this quest belong to a youtuber known as Mutekimaru, whose channel is popular among the gaming community for its videos featuring groups of tetra fish that “play” video games.
Mutekimaru installed sophisticated motion detection and tracking software in his fish tank, allowing the fish to remotely control a Nintendo Switch console.
But technology and the apparent dominance of two fish over it led to an unexpected twist at the beginning of this month, while Mutekimaru was broadcasting a Pokémon game live.
Mutekimaru had taken a break when the game crashed due to a system error and the console crashed to the initial screen.
But the fish will continue to swim, as the fish tend to do, and will apparently continue to remotely control or console their tank.
For the next seven hours, the kids will supposedly be able to change the Switch account name of their gift before entering the Nintendo store twice, where users can buy games and other content to download.
They will also be able to “verify” the terms and legal conditions, download a new avatar and then create a PayPal account – sending an e-mail to the owner in the process, a video of the live broadcast will appear.
But things will not end there. The fish are also seen adding 500 ien (about R$ 20) to Mutekimaru’s Switch account using his credit card during the live broadcast – I expose the details of his credit card in the process, revealed by the youtuber in a video later episode.
At that point, thousands of comments were broadcast while viewers attended the unintentional acquisition broadcast live on the channel, and the incident went viral on Twitter, where thousands of Japanese users shared their amusement.
Mutekimaru later said that he had contacted Nintendo to explain what happened and requested a refund of his 500 jen.
Nintendo was refused to comment CNNciting client confidentiality.
