    No warez/roms/isos/illegal/stolen/betas of to be released games.

    As ASSEMbler has pointed out. No current gen stuff no matter what. If you post it you WILL face the consequences I'm afraid. Pictures / videos of cancelled games are fine as long as they were made public in the first place.

    Assemblergames.com has ALWAYS been against everything listed in the post above. The rules are broken time and time again but no longer will this be tolerated (not that it ever was). From now on if you break the above rules, YOU deal with the consequences.

    Sorry to sound like an arse but the point must be made. NO current gen warez/roms/isos/illegal/stolen/betas of to be released games. No xbox 360 magic hack / exploit / whatever.

    Just for clarification's sake: Assembler states that members may not post content for current/next gen games that are or will be released--That is to say, do not use these forums as a vehicle for spreading piracy around.

    However, Yakumo seems to take it a step further saying that such content for canceled current-gen games is also unacceptable, aside from already published and publicly available media. Is this correct?

    To me, canceled games which will never see commercial release seem to be outside the realm of piracy, regardless of platform, so I just wanted to verify that my understanding of the declared rules was correct (specifically, whether or not Yakumo's post was in fact accurately in line with Assembler's intent).

    No yet to be released games.

    Canceled current generation games are a grey area, ask a mod.

    As people saw with splatterhouse, games get reworked.

    Stay on the side of caution and ask.

    As Assembler said. The splatter house problem caused a bit of trouble for this forum. It was a "cancelled" game that was in production limbo. It wasn't said to be 100% over and done with and as we all know the game did see that light of day even though it wasn't that good IMO.
    Yep, current gen cancelled games is a grey area. As Assembler pointed out, stay on the side of caution.

    Sorry, if my original post was unclear. It was written early in the morning after a few beers so I wasn't really awake as such.

    I'm pretty sure that all posts in this thread are redundant, minus the first.

    ... So I can't release the Xbox Cube's next big sensation "Katie Perry's House of Music Karaoke Vol. 29"?

    Including yours :). But, no. Not really. My post is a support post for Assembler. The more who highlight the point the more it will stand out. It could have been very bad for Assembler if he hadn't taken action as quick as he did.

    Exactly. But, all the points have been already made, so you just repeated them for no reason.

    As I didn't get a response from ASSEMbler, although I pm'd him twice:
    Let's say one got a very early build of a current gen game (it's already released for quite some time now), what is the legal situation about Screenshots and maybe, just maybe a release?
    (more questions are to follow after this is answered)

    Screen shots are fine but as for a release, well....... The rules are pretty clear.

    ok, I just wasn't too sure about it as it's imho not too clear here, one says yet to be released ones (that's what assembler says in his 1st and 2nd post) and then you said no current gen at all, so that got me confused.

    Thanks for clarification.

    I made a video game.... Can I post beta links through this site saying that I legally own the game?

    Is it homebrew? current gen? if you made it at a company you probably signed an NDA or at least a contract. if you are an independent devop, you are still not allowed to bundle it with any MS current gen software and stuff. (also, im no mod, so please check with the mods)
    If you got a SDK from "iligal" sources and made a game, I think it falls under warezz. If you like to share just the source code, without MS code, it might be allowed.
