If they're not the leaders anymore how are they holding back gaming? Lol, No but I can kind of see where you're going with that. They're holding back their own little carved out cave of gaming. Is it just me or do you feel like Nintendo is like on the outside of, I don't want to say real gaming, but like they're just off doing their own thing. Their own thing they've been doing for decades lol. Anybody feel this way? If someone asked you about gaming in general, you would think of games pertaining to Xbox, PS, and PC. Then you have nintendo in their own bubble, and then you have the cesspool that is mobile gaming. Right?

I haven't really played Nintendo since the days of N64. The gamecube I did but only for super smash and Fzero but that was it. Then they just fell off into irrelevancy to me. Nothing to attract me to them besides nostalgia. But I ain't paying $250 bucks for a tiny piece of nostalgia.

They are not bricking it
If they were actually bricking it I'd agree, that would be a problem, the one potential problem I see here is that the update comes first then they want you to agree to the new EULA, but with the knowledge that the update comes first it makes perfect sense to make the console unusable until you agree to it, if not you are using software of which you have not agreed to he TOS/EULA

Everyone do know the TOS/EULA is the developers demands to you (the client) to use the software, you don't agree you don't get access

Technically it is soft bricked / unusable, because if you refuse to accept you cannot continue using it, unlike previous times when you was just not able to go online you are now forced to or essentially lose access to using the console.

It's a low blow so hopefully nintendo will implement the obvious standard where online access and services are disabled.

Your first point I still disaagree with, the big difference between and and actual console-brick and what Nintendo is doing is so large that we shouldn't cal them the same thing
Your second point basically helps the potential softmodders to hack their system, this is almost encouraging softmodding as much as to allow downgrading (Some of the point of a lot of updates is to fix exploits)
