The ESA, who is ultimately responsible for giving the "Yea" or "Nay" to the DMCA exception request, said no, which ties back into the point about corporations using the "kragle of copyright" (should that be "Kragle of Kopyright"?) in order to freeze the status of a particular work, and keep old things old and, ultimately, making us, as players, continue to have to buy the new versions of the old things - even if someone wants to keep playing NFL 2KWhatever on the Xbox over the latest version of Madden on the XB1.
And, you can add on top of that the question of whether Copyright will end up causing for video games a problem like what the film industry has with preserving its history - much of the first 50 years of film is missing, due to poor archival practices by film studios (the documentary "Those Amazing Shadows" gets into this and if you haven't watched it you totally should). Could we see something like that happen again, as bit rot, server shutdowns, and lost code causes more of the history of video games as an artform and medium to be lost, due to DMCA copyright blocks making it harder to archive the hard data and transform it to another medium for preservation?
