Just for?

What language is this? It's not English.

Theres nothing incorrect with using just for in this sentence

Grammatically, yes there is. It should be "just by". "For" indicates that an action was taken by Nintendo in response to not using the console. "By" indicates that the act of not using it can cause the thing to happen.

By or From would have been fine. It's the result of, but not a reaction to the non-use, and the actor is yourself, ("You could") so unless you're suddenly having a psychotic break and destroying things as a result of not using your console it doesn't make a lot of sense.

It's not natural phrasing and sounds awkward. That's a quite valid concern.
