Renegade Kid talks 3DS piracy, says it could cause devs to leave

#1FFXIgaiaknightPosted 12/30/2012 2:53:16 PM
If piracy gets bad on the 3DS, we will have no choice but to stop supporting the platform with new games. Some say that piracy leads to more game sales, claiming that it enables players to try before they buy. Bull. The percentage of people who will spend money on a game that they already got for free is surely very small – especially with so many “free” games already in the market. The line between what should/should not be free is getting very blurry.

That F****** hack.
The region lock is a pain in the ass but it's not worth Devs leaving just to get rid of it.

Its always been a problem and it hasn't really stopped devs from making games.

I didn't even know someone hacked it to get rid of region locking.

News to me.


But whatever, people are always going to pirate games. It's not that hard to download an emulator for a computer. You don't need the 3ds to be hackable for that.

We didn't get Ace Attorney Investigations 2 because it's prequel sold very poorly.

Why? Because tons of players emulated the game via the hacks.

So yes, it DOES stop devs from localising or even making games.

Renegade Kid should work on a game worth playing first.

Last I heard they claimed hadn't taken it off the table yet, but I also haven't heard them say anything about they won't bring it because of emulation.

The risk I'll give you, but anyone with access to the internet can figure out how to hack things fairly easily. Especially with youtube.
