Nintendo Hits Vizzed

Nintendo put Vizzed on legal notice and forced them to take down over 2,000 Nintendo licensed games including homebrews and hacks. Vizzed has been around over 10 years with no issue. This has me curious. With the growing popularity of sites similar to this one and Vizzed do you think Nintendo is looking to create a similar format and needed Vizzed out of the way? Thoughts?

They already have - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Console Nintendo probably has no other plans.

Sega tried to do official online emulation once... PlaySEGA - Sega Retro

I was thinking more along the lines of a subscription based site where the customer could play the Nintendo library right online rather than buy individual games.

Re: Nintendo Hits Vizzed

They should, but my guess is no.

That is exactly what PlaySega attempted and failed at.
