In an attempt to crack down on international game trading, Valve "Region Locked" several games, some retroactively, rendering them unusable if you've traded them with a person from a different region. This move was made in response to the common practice of trading games with users from regions where they are available for considerably less.
The list of games confirmed to be locked in the store is as follows:
The list of games confirmed to be locked retroactively is as follows:
If you've traded any of those games, it is advised that you check whether they are functional and can be activated if received as a gift. It's also recommended that you hold off from trading any of those titles before the matter is clarified by Valve.
What can I say? That's naughty, that's very naughty, Valve. Region locking content? Digital content? In the 21st century? Really? Especially retroactively - I can understand locking games in the store, fair play, but after they were traded, so that the gift can't be activated? That's bogus.
Update: Several games from the list have now been unlocked - it's possible that the Steambot responsible for Region Locking simply went nuts for a while and the situation was amended later. Yay! Well... partially - some games remain locked.
'Tis a joyous time on GBATemp, with our team welcoming new blood, and with the community wanting to hit the big dance on a raffle. What better way to celebrate than with a written work from one of your reporters? Today's topic of discussion is about digital rights management. I am going to cover what this concept is, and what occasions where DRM is encouraged and discouraged, and asking for user input at the end.
The PC scene has become more and more vibrant over the years, and even Japan, where PC is a relatively unpopular platform, has begun to take notice. From making PC the lead platform for Dark Souls 2 to the recent ports of titles like Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Japanese devs are submitting to the whims of the master race opening up to new possibilites.
As it turns out, Square Enix may not be far behind.
Yes indeed Tempers it is that time of year again when old war horses retire and go out to stud and a new generation of mods take up the fight in their place.
Firstly the sad part as some of the greatest ever staff members to grace the site take a well deserved break into the Former Staff group. Not gone by any means and certainly never forgotten we thank our beloved mthrnite, Toni Plutonij and Vulpes Abnocto for their service over the years and wish them all the best with their future endeavours.
On a happier note it is with much joy that I present to you our new Chief EditorT-hug who will be whipping our fresh new team of Reporters into shape while making competing news sites tremble with fear.
And lastly it is with great pleasure that I bring to you the newest additions to our Moderating team. Long term member the always popular BortzANATOR and all round good guy Sicklyboy will be taking up the thankless role of Moderators and will hopefully make GBAtemp an even better community to be a part of.
Thanks everyone and good luck to the new guys as yet another chapter in GBAtemp history is written!
