it's IGN, what do you expect?
yes because everything they have done before like hating on the ps3 was just a sign that it would lead to shady business practices like this right??
IGN is a money whore company, sinking deep in developers pocket, Mainly like M$. They probably control other gaming sites and try to harm developers/publisher by giving them bad names unless they get PAID with a FAT CHECK! Since IGN, Rotten Tomatoes, Etc has so much power, Its like publishers, companies fear them and try to make them happy so what ever they make or release don't get hit with harsh remarks.
so EA paid ign to give medal of honor 6.0?
"IGN is a money whore company, sinking deep in developers pocket, Mainly like M$." I know this is N4G, so the following question may be foreign to you: Do you have any evidence to support your claims?
received the same bogus notices when I uploaded some BF3 vids.
Kinda reminds you of Apple :3
i know its bullshit and ign are gay but no-one wants to watch these 10 year olds do a boring ass commentary, i only go to vash12349 for those because he's a funny mofo!
Never liked IGN tbh. IGNorant can't review games for shit! When they reviewed battlefield bad company vietnam they gave it a 9.5. They took 0.5 off cus the reviewer didn't like 1 song. Fail!
I've had this happen to me, I just file a counter claim right away.
Lol they are just asking for a lawsuit from Square Enix
If Square decides to take action, all IGN will do is talk shit about ever game they publish with bad reviews and probably paid others to do the same.
and then everyone with notice this and say F**K IGN
@xtremxx, if this were from any other publisher, maybe, but since gamers seem to be quite upset with SE these days, not sure they'd side with them over anything. Same applies with Activision.
@STK026 I think everyone would side with SE/Eidos on this one. Especially since the video IGN is claiming the copyright of is from a game that they spent their money to make, not to mention the fact that IGN had absolutely nothing to do with it being released. It would be equivalent to Ebert and Roeper copyrighting the video of a movie someone reviews on YouTube.
"first I sign... then I sign... then I sign... TELL EM COME AND SEW MEEE!"
how are they ignorant?
rose tinted glasses duh
While I'm no IGN fan, if it was video content created for IGN.com, it's IGN property.
It was a "Let's Play" video of the user playing through Deus Ex. All video was recorded by him with his commentary. Videos from IGN and most large gaming sites usually have a watermark-like image of the sites logo in the bottom corner of the video.
i heard they also did the same when someone posted a monster hunter video
So the guy ripped the video from IGN and was surprised when they got a takedown notice? Even if he didn't, he had no permission to upload it.
Companies have exclusivity and they do protect that. I recall youtube taking down the teaser for Vanquish when it first came out, because it was exclusive to Gametrailers. Lame, but if you owned a site and had an exclusive trailer you worked hard to get, I'm sure you would do the same.
there is a difference between a teaser trailer that is the same video and one that you record yourself and upload it of you playing the game
Well, I made the same assumption basically. The correction is noted. But in all fairness, the article didn't mention any details about the video. You can't blame the readers when the article doesn't bother to report important info like that.
Really not enough info here to make any kind of judgement. I seriously doubt that IGN has any grounds whatsoever to lay claim to Deus Ex AND they're smart enough to know what they do and don't own/have rights to. I'm more inclined to believe that the user simply doesn't understand the reason behind the censure or the law and is merely guessing.
Should wait til there is any evidence at all when posting an article, rather than hearsay and conjecture by a "youtube user".
This happened to me.. It was MY GAME. I recored it with MY OWN equipment and software and i got some B.S. Copyright claim from them. I disputed it immediately and i no longer have a copyright now.
