Sega was like this years before getting Atlus. More realistically either they infected Atlus or they both share that kind of mindset at least among the execs, and we've seen how Japanese companies can be weird control freaks with this stuff (Sugiyama music streaming in Dragon Quest games on PS4) so it's probably the latter more than anything else.Atlus rubbing off after the acquisition
Jesus, don't pass on a Tetris game because of this. Moral grandstanding over this of all things is whack.
If anyone was legit going to watch a stream of this game for the story and not the gameplay, then man your life must be pretty sad if that was your launch Tuesday plans. lol
If i watch a stream of this, it will be to see how skilled the pros are and hopefully get some good tips. A story in this type of game will be garbage anyway. Not the mode most will want to play or stream.
Hardly. It was the tipping point if anything, where everyone's finally paying attention and seeing how nutty they actually are about this stuff.Really.
Persona 5 was just the beginning it seems...
Looking more like a match made in Hell when it comes to this stuff really.Makes you wonder whether Sega bought Atlus or whether it was the other way around.
Read the OP. That's not what this thread is about.I don't mind games doing this... Streaming isn't a right.
That being said, I have the Japanese PS4 version from a year or two ago and it had similar pauses in PS4 native streaming during cut scenes. This isn't a new addition.
Pointless. Companies already know it's bad PR to do this, it's why so many companies just let sharing happen even tho they have every legal right to stop it. Some companies however don't care about the negative PR it brings so they do it.
How dare someone... not buy a game...?Not this shit again.

Do you buy every game that comes out or something?
I am not liking this trend from Japan. Streaming and lets plays are slowly becoming a cornerstone of the industry (streaming especially) yet it seems that a lot of devs recently are trying their best to stop it. You'd hope someone would sit them down and explain the benefits but I guess they just have no idea. Or just don't care.
