A Chinese gaming rag, 掌机迷, one bearing a striking resemblance to Famitsu, has taken a distinctly Chinese approach to respecting copyright, by helpfully including the full ISO and similar data on its cover disc for the games it is reviewing.

Apparently, the disc has the various ROMs and images to all the games reviewed. All very convenient. And not bad value for $1.50…

It does not look as if China has much intent of taking these things seriously.

Interestingly, the magazine sports Japanese lessons to help avid Chinese gamers play such titles, or perhaps merely to aid them in copying them better.

Via Famicom Mania.

Will China ever clean up its dubious act?
