Oh I see, you meant it more like that piracy gets more popular. Well yeah that's true probably, but the gamedevelopers won't develop new games with solely of the aim to distribute it through shady torrents and such (they hardly get paid through like that anyway). I meant it more like in that direction, that they cannot do larger new games, even if they'd want to direct distribute it through DDL (because they are far too huge even by nowadays).
Uh but I was actually talking about unofficial file sharing.
The thing you linked states that Ilpalace's online shop will no longer make available to download certain materials. And I was stating that this will only have the effect to further bolster the unofficial file-sharing, since that will become the only possible way to get those "banned" products.
Yes but torrents aren't supported, only direct downloads are allowed by law I think. At least I never ever saw anything official torrented by it's lawful owners. Even the current internet only VN sellers only sell stuff through DDL, but never on torren.t
Yeah, but you can't compress the ones which are like 3-4+ GB huge. I mean imagine downloading School days (it's like 70 part on RS after a quick google-search, and since it contains orgy; rape; impregnation it'd also banned) through commercial ways, and imagine that 10000 people wants to download it with you at the same time, because it just came out.
One must have a ridiculously advanced servernetwork to be able to serve all the fans through download only.
I think shoujo means the one above loli (~13-18 year olds), and the palyer can't start relationship with such characters anymore. AFAIK the regulations before wasn't as strict with having sex with younger than 18 characters, but alas... they gonna be more strict about that.
It sure gonna be exciting now playing eroges . Every VN slice of life and/or high school. Period. If they want to do more "daring" games they cannot implement H-scenes, and without the H-scenes, no one really going to buy the game (unless it's key/type moon/leaf.)
Maybe I'll even go back to western games if things are going to be even grimmer...
