Beginning today, if you live in Quebec and want to buy a game that doesn't contain French text or voice-over -- you can't. You'll have to wait until one becomes available. Which, in many cases, can take weeks or months (or never happen at all).

The Toronto Star reports that the new law is meant to "promote and protect the French language." The paper spoke with one retailer who says that goal carries a high price. "I'm afraid it's going to cost me my business," said Ronnie Rondeau, who owns eight Game Buzz stores in Montreal. "If it really was going to make a difference, I'd be for it, but only a small number of people want to play in French."

Quebec's government threatened legal action against Nintendo and Sony in 1999 if the companies did not begin including a French language option in games (and game manuals) they published in the territory. The companies complied, and many third-parties produce French localizations of their games -- but work often isn't started until after the English version ships.

Even the head of the Entertainment Software Association of Canada, Danielle Parr, admitted to the paper that French-language games -- designed for release in France -- may never make it to Quebec due to the province's relatively small market. That being the case, some games will never be released there.

I live in Quebec and I'm sad about this new. It's another one of those stupid decisions taken by some fucking loser politicians that aren't even related or informed about what they take decisions about. Geez, I learned english when I was a kid while playing starcraft and diablo!! And I don't have any trouble at all with french either. What's the fucking point!?! Mind your own fucking business, dumbfucks.

I agree. You guys should man up and have a pillow fight. Then DrDevil in true french fashion should surrender.
