New politician Ken Akamatsu creates task force to preserve classic games in a playable state

Recommended Posts

Hey @Ross Scott did you see this yet? I wouldn't normally ping you but this is probably of importance to you, and I don't use twitter.




“Yesterday at 8:00 p.m., the Digital Archives Society’s Legal System Subcommittee’s Digital Rights PT,” Akamatsu said. “A select team of experts has been formed to start working on “legal preservation of past games in a playable state.”

He added, “The archiving and utilization of old content that is being lost is an area in which I have a strong passion. I want to make this a success.”


He's got my vote. ☑️


Apologies to the mods if this should have gone in the Video Game Preservation thread.

That's pretty cool, I'm interested to see how they would actually go about achieving this. 

Fuck, man. Everything. I push buttons. I turn dials. I read numbers. Sometimes I make up little stories in my head about what the numbers mean.
