Quebec says 'non' to English-only video games
« on: April 04, 2009, 01:03:48 pm »
The French Canadian government of Quebec is saying non to English-only video games if French versions are available.


French language rules on video games come into force on April 1, prohibiting the sale of new English-only video games in Quebec if a French version is available.



Great Seal of Quebec.

(Credit: Quebec, Canada)Is this a smart move to get more video games into the hands of French speakers? Or, is it misguided, xenophobic protectionism? I'm going with the latter

OK now if Quebec wants to supply coders to help the Gaming industry maybe then it will work..

I for one like the Canadians and would hope they understand my humor...

With all the sites and more and more programs comming out French is included in a lot now along with a lot of other languages

An inconvenience, but if you want to make omelettes, you have to break some eggs.
