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 don't understand the logic in that comment, but I'm from before the entitlement generation and you tube and the internet :)

Gaming has become inseparable from streaming and videos.

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...

I warned you. The power has gone to their heads. Now we're all suffering...



It was Britain, it is America, tomorrow France and next year, the world... 

Warning: This poster has a very negative opinion of Sony and Nintendo, Idea Factory and companies Tecmo Koei, EA, BioWare, Blizzard, Treyarch, Infinity Ward, Kadokawa and Sega. If you have very positive views of these and a negative view of Microsoft or Bethesda Game Studios, AVOID ENGAGEMENT AT ALL COSTS!

    Isn't the game out though? Companies controlling play usage after you bought the game sounds stupid. The people who get spoiled are the ones who CLICKED on the stream. And didn't this already come out in Japan? I'm confused...

    The recommended videos alone on youtube can be huge spoilers. They can spoil the ending even if you don't click on them

    It has? Maybe for some and unfortunately it seems my kids are infected too. When they're playing BotW at every point they say now this is going to happen and then Blitzwinger or whoever did this here and DanTDM beat the boss with such and such. Why do you even bother to play the game...

    I understand wanting to show some cool moments, ingenious solutions or other random things happening. I've uploaded plenty videos myself too. Yet watching a game stream from start to finish just seems silly to me.



    I might be completely out of touch with modern gaming but if I created a story based game I would shut down all streams and lets plays for 6 months to a year.

    I don't understand why someone would want to watch someone else playthrough an entire game in the first place. You are destroying the allure of the content.

    Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

    i'm sure they'll lift the restriction after a month or two. don't panic



    None of Atlus' business. Throwing my Take your heart edition and throwing it in my cat's litter box. Boycotting this hot mess.
