Hello, and thank you very much for your detailed answer. What you said about the PS3 is mind-blowing and it really sucks. Now I'm really confused.
But let me ask once again: you say the console performs a "license check" and if Nintendo has cancelled the license, I cannot play the game anymore. But couldn't this be avoided by simply turning OFF the internet of the console, like I suggested earlier?
My point is, don't they revoke the license via internet? And doesn't the console also need internet in order to "detect" that the valid license is gone? So if we "cut" their internet access to our consoles, there's nothing they can do about it to stop us from playing the game?
Actually I'm going to revise this. If your console cannot perform the license check, then it is going to assume that you do not have a license. This is initiated by your system, not by the internet contacting your system, so disconnecting it from the internet will not prevent it from doing the check or from deciding that you do not have a valid license. I think that better answers your question.
Just my understanding from what was posted and said in the video.
