live streaming a movie in a theater should be fine then.

seriously though, the good thing about reviews is that it doesn't give out spoilers.

Reviews give a lot of spoiler, about everything, the characters, the story, how the game works, some have lots of images and talk about secrets.

A movie is a completely different subject, though, a movie is made to people watch, it hurts it's directly hurts it basic purpose.
A video game is made to people play, watching it doesn't hurt it basic purpose, to be played, and thus is a non-issue.

 

::i did some editing refinements in my earlier post::

I'm going to have to disagree with that because just like movies, there are games out there that is heavy on story, your overall experience diminishes if you know all the plot twist, secrets and ending beforehand.

I'm just saying. Atlus is doing something extreme, but I get why. I get it.

Can you paraphrase the discussion, and tell me the date, place and events leading up to/proceeding the event?

Why would it be any different? 

I wasn't expecting it to be any different, but I can still see takedowns being the usual form of play.

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.

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

There is none, because he'd actually have to go out and count heads. Same argument goes towards those citing piracy as a "lost sale", it's not remotely good enough to toss out "definitely" without backing it up with concrete irrefutable proof, from multiple sources at that. 



                                       

Why would anyone seeking out those videos or streams care about spoilers? This sounds just like harassment of content creators under the guise of "protecting the fans". That's even worse than just being an asshole, it's being an asshole and lying about it.

Or maybe they're just very very naive and think they can somehow control the internet with threats.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Good on them. Dunno why it's normally accepted with games. When a new movie comes out you don't see tons of streams popping up from people watching the whole movie in the cinema...

Two entriely different issues.

If it's a heavily story driven game it really isn't. Besides it's up to the content owner to decide how far fair use can go. Broadcasting the game from start to finish is definitely not fair use.

They're in the wrong business if they don't want people posting it onto YouTube. 



I shouldn't even be reading this thread lmao, I remember someone spoiled me Force Awakens on here, and it wasn't even a comment but their nickname
