Devolver Responds to Persona 5 Streaming Guidelines

Good guy Devolver strikes again.

7 months ago by Morgan Shaver in News

After Atlus announced their strict streaming policy for their latest game, Persona 5, Devolver Digital decided to announce their own set of streaming guidelines. On Twitter, Devolver posted a brief statement in reference to streaming the games they publish. These rules are not only simple, they also have a touch of humor that can only be found from the team at Devolver Digital. 

These cheeky rules are the complete opposite of Atlus’s new stance on streaming Persona 5. To sum up the guidelines recently issued by Atlas, keep streaming at 90 minutes or under, don’t include major story spoilers, no major boss fights, and the game is currently blocked through the native PS4 UI.

(Devolver's "Behind the Schemes" series on YouTube is tons of fun!)

These are actually pretty mild in comparison to companies like Nintendo who’ve notoriously made the act of posting content reviews difficult for YouTubers. The main point of contention with streamers in regards to Persona 5, though, is the threat that should they stream past 7/7 they run the risk of being issued a content claim, strike on their channel, and/or account suspension. Owch!

Fortunately for all of you game streamers out there, you can stream as much Genital Jousting, Serious Sam, Shadow Warrior 2, and Hatoful Boyfriend (among others) as you want. So go forth Devolver fans and stream it up!
