Time for something new! I'm hoping to create a new discussion on the advertising of games and how effective you think they are or are not. (Why the goal of advertising is to increase sales, I decided to throw this topic here so we can leave actual sales numbers and such in that area.)
Let's start things off with some of the launch commercials for the major three consoles:
Playstation 3 'Baby' Commercial - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqkNPcUMffU
Wii 'Wii Would Like to Play' Commercial - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkS2DJ6VX_g
Xbox 360 'Water Balloons' Commercial - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsrB0jep4-M
What do you think of them? Effective or not? What could/should be changed? Try to keep the criticism constructive and focused.
Please also let me know if you think I should break this thread into separate ones based on systems. games, topics, etc. I also welcome any additional links and other topics you'd like to branch out in. And you can also tell me that you don't like the idea, but can just do that by just not posting a reply.
Numbers are like people. Torture them enough and you can get them to say anything you want.
