Going after Roxor I could see.

Going after Harmonix for releasing in Japan I could see.

This... what? Konami has a Korean division?

Konami probably hired a few guys to build a booth in a street and draw a corporate logo on it.


And Kuhazan, participating in piracy isn't going to solve anything. If you want the game, buy it. If you really want to give Konami the finger, ignore it.

Downloading isn't a form of boycotting, that's being cheap.

Downloading may be cheap and unethical, but it certainly can hurt Konami in terms of sales.

Though what is the point of downloading Konami games anyways? It's just rehashed, recycled bullshit for every damn sequel Konami releases. (Where the hell are the long-notes in Beatmania, Konami? Did Pentavision beat you to that too?)

I myself will just not buy anything from Konami. If someone wants a certain Konami game, I wouldn't hesitate to refer them to a download link myself. The losses Konami suffers will be a taste of their own medicine for screwing players and their fanbase with their mediocre game releases.

It was just a joke... Konami hasn't released anything I'd be willing to buy since... hey when was the last time a Pop'n CS release came out?  :indifferent:

And it looks like they've reached their limit as far as creativity with that series goes... oh well. Maybe I should sell my ASC...

I have to say  that this news shocked me few days ago. I just couldn't believe it. I can understand KONAMI suing Harmonix for whatever case,can't understand letting neversoft use their patents and such but goddamn it I thought that DJ MAX would stay untouched. I don't play DJMAX as I have IIDX to occupy myself with but hell KONAMI....this is TOO MUCH!!!!

and release PNM CS15 please!!!!!!????????!!!!

btw. what I wrote yesterday on ddrnl forums...might interest you just a bit. (the ITG part was for me quite a shock...)

so well reviving this topic because heads of French DDR communities + DDR Belgium ahd a reunion with KONAMI France and they answered few questions that were asked.

Question asking about jubeat CS and BEMANI games and next gen.

Jubeat CS is not what concerns KONAMI nowadays (as many other stuff like KONAMI hardpads). KONAMI FR is not aware of any BEMANI game being ported to PS3 (other consoles were not mentioned and nothing else about the future of BEMANI in Japan was mentioned). BEMANI JP might be attending Japan Expo though so we can ask our questions there. (I'm going if BEMANI division is there! as if everything goes well and the DDR league is really going to happen BEMANI staff will have to be there at the finals at Japan Expo)

There will be DDR League supported by KONAMI and they will see the outcome of it and based on that good things can happen (French people always complain about not having enough arcades and good maintained ones but crap!!! this country has loads of them and are in quite a good shape! not the mention that the communities are there, people play etc etc...)

Anyway KONAMI does not really seems to have interest in outcome of this DDR League but as they said it's something !!!!new!!! unlike PES league for example. (crap and I thought everything is slowly dying off?)

Also KONAMI mentioned one weird thing. "As KONAMI owns the rights for ITG, they will be fine if we/you promote this game as well as DDR. Whatever the case new players won't be really interested in this as ITG is well dead. Thus KONAMI will concentrate on DDR (league and promotion which is supposed to be something BIG, but they did not say anything on that issue) and will leave ITG for "experts". (more precisely they will leave ITG for expert players....)

(I was shocked after this statement!!!!)

that's about this...I just felt like ....well sharing this information

I think the last good thing Konami has released (published) was MGS4.  So yeah, nothing konami does anymore that isn't kojima related interests me, really.

Hey hypr, I'll have you know that everything you've said so far, I think, hits the nail right on the head.

Konami's not just being pushy or power-hungry...they're being selfish brats, too.

Current piano projects: None atm.

Some of my performances: Feux D'artifice, by Claude Debussy, La Cathedrale Engloutie, by Debussy, Nocturne in B Major, Op. 62 no. 1, by Frederic Chopin, Ballade no. 1 in G Minor, by Chopin, Amberley Wild Brooks, by John Ireland,Prelude in D Minor, Op. 28 No. 24, by Chopin

Show me a person who describes anything as "overrated", and I'll show you a person who's run out of good ideas.

That is something I could more easily sell local than to sell online... it's pretty heavy so I don't want to deal with shipping this thing.

Man, I wish there was a way to get Konami's attention, like a Konami-run forum for one of their music games having this one huge topic filled with both players and non-players of Pentavision games expressing their extreme distaste for this ludicrious blawwwwsuit.

It's too bad I can't remember where an official Konami-run music game community would be.
