omg - will nintendo fans every be satisfied? does every wii game have to have a GTA/halo level advertisement budget?

We're not asking for that level of advertisement, we just want the game to at least have a chance of selling good

well please, for my sake....give me some sort of definition what what that means.  as darconi so aptly mentioned - CoD:MW2 had and ad budget in the range of 150 million dollars.  that is (just to be plain) a lot of money, way more then most games can justify. just think about it, if you spend $1 on ads then that must equate to at least $1.00 in sales (over an above what you would have gotten without an ad) otherwise you are loosing money.

i'm no ad guru but off the top of my head i remember that EA spent 1 million dollars for one 30 second commericial to air during the super bowl (which only reaches the US market).  Red steel probably has a marketing budget in the ball park of 10 million dollars which is a large sum of money to be sure.  spread that across all the major markets and several channels (of which you probably don't watch all of) and how many commercials do you expect to see on tv?  1? 2? 10? 100?

red steel 2 is getting air time as people in this thread can attest.  what i would really like to know is how much advertizing do people really expect? 

I don't expect it to be advertised on every single channel, every second of the day. I expect it to have at least SOME advertising. As previous comments stated, people are noticing this game being advertised which is more than we can say for half the third-party Wii games out there. Obviously it's working so I'm not complaining...



Around the Network

a long commercial was apparently played on raw tonight



Monster Hunter Tri

Name: Silver

ID: 94BRVX

I saw an add on Spike TV as well. Compared to most Wii games, this is getting some decent advertising. I'm expecting this game to sell 200k - 500k LTD

Anything less will be very disappointing

I saw this on the Nintendo Channel.  I really like this video.  I'm glad they used this for advertisment.

Er...no. How about...ANY advertisement budget?

 

 

With that said, I have seen a couple ads for Red Steel 2 on the air.

Are you serious?  Advertising is especially important to games that doesn't have a defined audience.  You know whats the most popular game out this gen?  COD:MW2.  Do you know how much advertising it got?

Call of Duty cost $40 million to $50 million to produce, people close to the project said, about as much as a mid-size film. Including marketing expenses and the cost of producing and distributing discs, the launch budget was $200 million, on par with a summer popcorn movie -- and extremely high for a video game.

It got $200 F'ING MILLION!!!  You shouldn't need to advertise that much when its already freaking established multi-years in a row.

I bet all the 3rd party games on the wii had a combined developing budget less than that.

A few wii games are more popular than COD

well, if you've seen a few ads then red steel 2 got an advertising budget didn't it.  near as i can tell it got a better ad budget then a lot of HD releases actually.  so when the OP and first couple of replies to this thread are trying to create image that red steel isn't getting any ads and already getting ready to flame ubisoft for a lack of committment to their wii games...well i just find them silly.
