Atlus Threatens To Go After People Who Stream Too Far Into Persona 5

Forums - Sony Discussion - Atlus Threatens To Go After People Who Stream Too Far Into Persona 5

Games like Final Fantasy XV was ruined before official release because of streamers.

Atlus is just protecting our experience. Completely different than Nintendo, you can't compare the two.

A litle too extreme, streamers just share content is up to the viewers to decide how much to watch, plus I doubt most people who really want to play the game would watch a stream first.

Pretty extreme if you ask me, telling people how to play the game.

I doubt they will be able to stop people from streaming the gamr via the emu that they have zero control over. 

Why would it be any different?

People play games at the pace they want, if someone goes and beat Persona 5 in the launch day somehow and uploads/streams it all, he didn't do anything wrong by any means, and shouldn't be threatened in any way.

The game already officially released, people bought it, they should do what they want with it aside from pirating.



It's their game, they can do whatever the fuck they want.

If I were to release a game I'd partner with certain big Youtubers and allow them to post videos about it, up to a certain point.

I would block lets players who upload entire playthroughs on youtube, that shit cost sales.

It should be general policy actually, your game gets exposed and have people talk about it, but also cuts off those who wouldn't have bought actually to buy it.

It's not like you have to watch the videos. Just play the game and ignore them.

Is there any proof at all that playthroughs lower sales of games?

Certainly there are people who bragged about having watched TLOU on Youtube, I also personally know people who do it.

It's like saying we can't talk about it here as well, 'cause people are reading about the game instead of playing it.
Reviews should be a crime, by that logic.

Nobody should support Atlus on that.

How do you know they would have bought the game if they hadn't seen it  on YouTube?
