Tales of zestiria - All share button functionality is disabled

When sony announced the share button and the fact it would be up to the developer it was only a matter of time before someone said no for one reason or another... Well here we are and it's licensing that's the problem.

This also includes screenshots aswell as recording gameplay and if you try and stream the game on the ps4 it will only stream the audio.

Sorry I don't have a website or anything to post this on but I imagine some people will want to know before it's out in north america in a few days.

It's okay.. the source is the official twitter account so it's fine.

OT: Yeah, it's pretty disappointing :(
Maybe it'll be available after launch? We'll see..

Edit : Yeah lol pretty laughable situation.

djplonker2662d ago (Edited 2662d ago )

Well its officially launched in europe so they could be waiting for the na launch to aviod spoilers.

If thats true you gotta laugh considering it came out in japan in January...

Lol who cares, I don't use those anyways. Ya acting like it's the end of the world or something.

ChronoJoe2659d ago

Funnily enough, you don't represent everyone in the world. Have you ever considered there are people that in fact, DO use those features?

Dark_Overlord2661d ago

They'll most likely remove the restriction at some point :)

FullmetalRoyale2661d ago (Edited 2661d ago )

DB Xenoverse still blocks it. Matter of fact, I tried again the other day to remote play with it, and it still has the "blocked screen" bs. Some devs just aren't with the times. Will wait on this game and see what the verdict is, as far as screenshots and remote play go. I'm not supporting them full price if they choose to block their game off like that. Hope you guys enjoy, in the meantime!

TWB2661d ago

Isnt that just mostly for the animated cutscenes and the intro? I remember recording gameplay just fine.

TitanUp2661d ago

I think a lot of Japanese companies block the Share button.

ThunderPulse2661d ago

They're stuck in the past kinda like Nintendo.

Hoffmann2661d ago

Gaming in 2015 ...features that sometimes SUCK.

If you make a screenshot in Dynasty Warriors 8 as example, you get a big copyright by koei namco watermark on them.

DivineAssault 2661d ago (Edited 2661d ago )

No screenshots? why? Its only a secondary option that doesnt detract from gameplay but still.. Thats a major PS4 selling point

blackblades2659d ago

That's a point right there, instead of playing and enjoying the game, they cry over stupid stuff thats not even needed that's distracting you from the game.

make a statement with your wallet, i was considering this game, but will not buy because of this. I have many other games i can play, and especially with rpgs i like to log events and progress with video and screenshots.

DemonChicken2661d ago (Edited 2661d ago )

To be honest, yes it sucks but it's nothing game breaking like censorship. The game itself is still intact.

If you support theses type of games by not buying, we probably see less of these games localised. sure by all means voice your discontent so they will do better next time but seeing these types on comments on like twitter is kind of silly especially when the majority of us really want to see more of these niche jrpgs games localised.

Just my two cents

gamer78042661d ago

Tales games usually make it to the west, you're not wrong though, in general i try to support jrpgs so more of them come west, even the smaller titles on the vita. I just have too many others to play that without this its one i can replace with another jrpg

MegaRay2661d ago

I think they're disabling the function until this game release in NA which is 3 days from now. If the function is still disabled, then AND ONLY THEN, complain.

freshslicepizza2661d ago

could be right. i am not a fan of publishers or hardware makers putting in restrictions whenever they feel that goes against consumers choice.

gamer78042661d ago

i hope you are right, they have done that with some other games before.

Spotie2661d ago

"i was considering this game"

And yet you didn't comment on a single other article about this game. Not one of the positive reviews, not a single other article.

I find it hard to believe that you could have had any interest in this game, and yet not express that until you've found the singular negative article about it and then confirmed that this negative thing has erased that supposed interest.

gamer78042661d ago

you are right, i haven't commented on any articles, but i've watched gameplay and trailers for this, looks like a good game, but if its truly missing this feature, there are tons of other jrpgs that i'm just as interested in. I can only play so many having a vita and ps4.

I did say vote with your wallet, if the feature doesn't matter to you, get it and enjoy the game, if you are like me and want all jrpgs to be able to stream/capture video/screenshots then might as well get another game.
