Bowser Must Pay Nintendo For The Rest Of His Life!

No, it’s not the Bowser who springs to mind first.


It’s not Mario’s archnemesis. Instead, we are talking about someone called Gary Bowser. In early 2022, he was sentenced to 40 months in prison for hacking into the Nintendo Switch security systems and running pirated programs as part of a hacker group called Team Xecuter and selling these solutions for the money. The sentencing did not last for that long, as Bowser is slowly leaving the prison, but that doesn’t mean he’s paid his debt to the big N…

TorrentFreak reported that Bowser’s good behavior has led to his early release, and he is now waiting to go home to Canada. He owes Nintendo $10 million, which he will probably never be able to pay. He recently gave an interview to Nick Moses, in which he confirmed that he was able to pay off $175 (one hundred and seventy-five!!!) dollars for his work in prison…

Suppose he can find a stable job in Canada with his record. In that case, Nintendo will take 25-30% of his gross salary because of their agreement, so unless he wins the lottery, Bowser will simply pay the Japanese company until his death, even though his role in Team Xecuter was not central, as he ran the MaxConsole website. It was here that the team’s tools were tested. A French national, Max Louarn, was allegedly behind the whole thing, but somehow he never got into the hands of the authorities. If he had been extradited to the US, he would have faced a much heavier sentence than Bowser. Louarn helped Team Xecifer raise a few million dollars compared to Bowser’s $320,000 income.

Then, let us ask how the $320,000 profit added up to $10 million in Nintendo’s formula. Would it not be more appropriate to employ Bowser directly so that he can pay his fine?
