Atlus changes and apologizes for Persona 5’s streaming guidelines

Players that were playing the game " Persona 5" now can be a bit at ease and are now able to stream the game a bit longer without the " Atlus Retribution." The publisher decided to change the original video guidelines for the game, laying them out on a blog post while also adding onto the blog post a great apology to anyone who felt threatened by the previous rules.

"We recognize that our fans are the reason why the game is the major worldwide success it is, and we continue to want them to be able to enjoy the game without fear of being spoiled,” said Atlus. “Because we want to give players the most access to the game while respecting the original goal, we’re now asking players to refrain from streaming or posting video past the end of the in-game date of 11/19 — when the main story gears up for the final act.”

Atlus felt that if people streamed the game too early, it would hurt the experience for other newer players or become more of a spoiler to the story. The publisher was wary of coming off as too heavy handed with the guidelines they created.

“We want to be transparent about what we do, and the reason we released the guidelines was to give streamers the right information up front,” the publisher explained. “It was never our intention to threaten people with copyright strikes, but we clearly chose the wrong tone for how to communicate this.”

The Playstation 4 Share feature still won't work with Persona 5 even with the guidelines revised.
