Nay to more big movies which would introduce region locks
I would prefer no region locks but if its the only way the publisher agrees then I am fine with it. I'd rather see key titles available then not.
Region locking = Check your prvilieges. <br /> <br /> i'm SJW, but fuck that shit. That's almost racist, and definitely nationalist.
Not really the kind of person to buy a movie or tv series from a gaming site, but if you could get some sorta deal going between bonus content for those that buy both, or at least a nice discount, I could see myself using that a few times. Say, if you got the Sopranos game and the blessings of HBO to sell the series too. Or for the kids, if you convince Nick to pair up game and episode (Disney would probably never go for it just because they like exclusivity like a devil though) <br /> I would see this appealing most towards Hollywood studios that believed in resales/rereleases of old titles, such as Paramount. Digging up all those old half-arsed novelty licensed games and letting you buy them for $3-5 if you also buy the related movie for $3-5 at the same time (like Alien 3 or Sands of Time or Independence Day, for examples) This would give people a nice choice depending on if they like the game or movie better. Do you play the game but only watch the movie once every two months or less? Then you would buy it in that package deal here than at Netflix or Amazon. But if you watch the movie/series more often, you'd buy it at a movie place.
I find region locks more evil than other DRM types. It means that because I don't live in a priviledged country, I cannot even pay for something I want. It's the reason I refuse to do any trick (VPN, etc) to get on Netflix. They will get my money when they will accept it openly. <br /> To sum up, NO to region locks or any other DRM.
Region locking is an utterly obsolete practice in this increasingly digtial day and age and GOG shouldn't in any way support that ancient system.
I (we) germans suffered long enough by the stupid regulations of our gouvernment to tell us full grown adults what we are allowed to play and what not. I believe in no-DRM, no-regiolock, no-cencorship. GOG always stood for these principles. But now you betrayed them. <br /> <br /> I know, GOG is too a victim of our degenerated society that wishes to control everything. Don't let this happen. Don't betray yourself.
I would always like to buy DRM-free movies in general. If the DVDs have region protection, but the same movie on GOG is NOT region-protected - of course I would always like to buy it. I don't want to hear anything about "Holliwood Mafia" - I want those movies finally without any DRM and also without "region-DRM". In my opinion streaming-sites like netflix are even worse, because they are ALWAYS restricted to only one region. GOG ist not netflix, I want to DOWNLOAD the movies instead of "streaming".
Bringing in a product that could only be sold to certain countries would (I feel) be a rather large backwards step for GoG. You've always stated your positions on DRM and such like clearly and introducing such products could be seen as a case of not 'practising what you preach.' <br /> <br /> I know only buy downloadable games from GoG precisely because you've stood up and said you'll have nothing do with some of the shadier corporate practises of other, larger companies. Introducing region locked film would (I believe) alienate a large number of your customers.
I wouldn't get movies from gog whether drm free or not. That's why I use Netflix. Better selection & better setup for browsing movies or tv shows. Gog should just concentrate on games. Speaking for just myself I would never buy a movie from this site.
NO redefining DRM to bring in the Hollywood Mafia. Amazon did the same thing by redefining the word "download". Please don't sell out!
Seeing more movies or other digital goods on GOG is something I can fully support *so long as it comes without any type of DRM*. Region locking and the other forms of use prevention that many industries have adopted as the norm are awful and should be avoided period. <br /> <br /> Any company that wants to be responsible and sell truly, fully, DRM free digital goods, and wants to partner with GOG to do it, by all means go for it and I'll toss some money your way. Anything else does not belong on GOG.
No regional DRM, please.
I actually like the idea of GOG selling movies. I love the idea of having a legal option for buying DRM free movies and GOG as a platform works well for me.
Good Old Games shouldn't even be selling movies to begin with. These nerdy semi-amateur gamer movies... fine. Anything detached from that, though, shouldn't have a place here. <br /> <br /> It's bad enough that games that are neither old or have nothing to do with old school gaming have made their way here. Indies... fine. Many of them do harken back to the old days, while others are pretty good regardless and could use a good place like this to be marketed fairly. <br /> <br /> More recently, certain games have been coming with regional pricing tagged along, GOG having dropped one of its initial commitments, which was never to succumb to that rip-off of a marketing ploy. <br /> <br /> And now regional locking? To bring movies to a digital distribution site called Good Old Games? We're definitely not adhering to the charter anymore.
How easily can one find The Matrix being sold as a DRM-free download? (I haven't looked.)
Besides the region locks, nay to movies that you can find anywhere easily. It goes against the entire spirit of the website to nominate mainstream Hollywood movies like the Matrix. Knock it off, goggers.
Region locks and DRM, things that GOG should avoid like the pest. <br /> Instead of introducing this, focus on negotiating uncensored all-region games, movies, and Japanese anime series if possible.
Region Locks are DRM. Also as another poster said if movies get locks then game publishers will demand 'why can't we have lockouts?' Then there goes your business. <br /> <br /> I enjoy GOG because there will never be DRM or other forms of locking me out from stuff I paid for. That is why I enjoy being your customer.
I think that people that vote for yay forget one thing - that is that if gog allows regional locking for movies then what is there to stop game publishers to demand just the same thing and that is the crux of this issue. Afterall Steam and everybody besides gog does that. So vote for nay and let at least gog be fair to a majority of people.
Regional pricing, while I don't like it, I can tolerate. But regional restrictions or locking would be completely unacceptable to me.
GOG shouldn't even try to get worldwide distribution rights for Hollywood blockbusters. Instead they should bring us interesting movies from all around the world that (often) never were shown in cinemas outside of their home countries. <br /> <br /> Getting worldwide distribution rights for that movies would be much easier (many of the producers would be happy to sell it to foreign countries) and such a collection of movies could be paradise for real cineastes.
For the movies that would probably come here because of it it's probably not worth the effort.
Region restriction is an outdated concept that shouldn't exists anymore for digital media. I rather not have GoG supporting that.

No. Region-lock is even worse than milking each country differently. <br /> <br /> And I admit this is a selfish vote because right now 99% of movie providers I know offer 0% to 20% of their catalogue available to US/Canada/UK/Germany/France here. <br /> <br /> Don't change into something you didn't want to be at the beginning, GOG.
How can GOG seriously expect games publishers/developers to release their games DRM free here if they allow movie publishers to region lock their products? This would be a massive backward step and seriously dent their credibility.
Voted. Regional locking is worst form of drm and is not acceptable.
Voted. I don't care what movie it is, region locking is evil.
