Sega Removing Fan's YouTube Videos To Better Promote New Game

Some channels have been completely shut down, while others have hit with copyright violations (Industry, PSP, Sega, Shining Ark)

Sega literally attempting to destroy the memory of their old great Shining games to sell their new shitty Shining games. :/

They are dogs. They abandoned support of the AvP game on 360 and PS3 like 6 months after release. Dogs left some regional matchmaking in, and never patched it. It is almost impossible to find a game, they may as well have shut the servers down.

screw you sega this will make people not buy your games to quote one of my favorite youtubers totalbiscuit said on twitter "Due to fears of copyright action, the channel will boycott Sega and coverage of any of their published titles until this is fixed"

Honestly I think a lot of the various channels should unite on this, not even just Sega related ones. It could have a ripple effect if other companies think it will be effective. If they stand up to the practice now, other companies will think twice before proceeding.

I am definitely in / game.
i know, what better way to sell to someone than piss them off

They just killed interest in the game...

I've never found it hard to find official information on any game because of user made videos. Just look up Final fantasy trailers and the official ones will be right at the top, with thousands more that are fanmade. I will admit though that there are quite a few fan made trailers that are a lot better than the official ones.

This is a bad move on their part. Lots of people get interested in a series because of what the fans put out there. It's how I got into Persona personally.

I don't understand... wouldn't the videos hosted by the fans actually help in advertising the game?
bubblebeam  +   972d ago
Correct, but these people can't get it through their heads. They aren't gamers, they are accountants.

The amount of games I bought just by watching online videos is in the thousands, counting continued series support.

I got the first Ratchet and Clank like 3 months after it came out, due to a cool online video. Been a fan ever since.

You guys don't know the meaning of the word "Pissed at Sega" like I do since 1994

SoR Remake was taken down for SoR Vintage Collection
