One of the strangest stories that appeared in 2018 was the recent Soulja Boy saga, in which the rapper decided to try his hand at flogging game consoles, which were loaded with hundreds of unlicensed ROMs. Initially, this business venture consisted of only two different machines, but it soon expanded and included “SouljaBoy Mini” – the reconstruction of an already existing Game Boy clone.
Well, you may be surprised (or not at all surprised) to learn that Soulja Boy has removed all the product pages for consoles. On this question, little is said in any official capacity, but the rapper’s twitter below indicates that some form of lawsuit probably took place. Nintendo has always incredibly defended its IP, and Soulja Boy products would also affect several other game publishers; It is easy to imagine that at least one company will take a step forward and take action.
Nevertheless, one of the interesting events on one of the Soulja Boy sites redirects visitors to its own Nintendo 3DS store. You can try it yourself – just visit http://souljagame.com/ and enjoy watching the amazing 3DS and 2DS sets.
So the moral of this story is that stealing other people's works and selling them as your own, for the purpose of making a profit, is rather disapproving. Who knew?
