I'm not watching the streams, but I'm not paying $80 for it.

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.

And why can you not compare the two? Are you sure Atlus isn't just protecting their bottom line?  We will let you see so far into the game to get you hooked on the story but you have to buy it if you want the rest ...



I love how we've gone from Streaming to being a good thing, becoming more commonplace, to it apparently being a bad thing. You don't have to watch the streams, inf act those of you who don't want to see said streams and siding with Atlas should actually be playing the game, not paying full attention to those who wish to stream their gameplay.

Games are not movies, don't even try tying them to another form of media and calling them exactly the same with another form's rules.



                                       

Good. Maybe one day someone tackles the legal landscape of the internet and content producers will be able to protect and manage their intellectual properties.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

CAD. I don't buy games at retail price, I usually wait until they're at most 25% they're original price.

Crude Oil has more to do with the US, than it does any other organization. 



 

Considering it's their IP, I believe they should do whatever they see fit. However, personally I do not see a point to this, I am pretty sure those that do not want spoilers will stay off and gamers that see parts of a games story may still buy it (I am not sure about others, but I have never skipped out on a game because of story spoilers, largely because the interactive aspect of video games is something that cannot be spoiled by watching content), Sometimes these things create more of PR disasters than they are worth (I know it is not exactly the same, but one needs to look at how much slack Nintendo took for their stupid streaming policies.)
