The most anticipated game of the decade according to Sony is out tomorrow and the marketing for the game appears to be non-existing. What is wrong here?
How can Sony allow this to happen? By now I would have expected Gran Turismo 5 to be on every 7-11 cup, commercial and billboard. My 70 year old co-worker knows what a Kinect and Black Ops is, as a matter of fact, my friend’s mom went to the COD: Black Ops midnight launch, just because of the hyped up advertising, yet GT5 appears to be just another game release that nobody, but the true gamers, video game sites and fans of the series know about. Why the fu** is Sony shooting themselves on the foot? The hard core gamers know of its date, but that is only a small percentage of the gaming population. Did they happen to run out of funds for the advertising? We all know the game will do solid, thanks to its passionate fan base, but doesn’t Sony want to take Gran Turismo 5 to the next level of success?
Who’s with me? Come on…you know you get it. It’s the Detox of Gaming, but you still need some kind of advertising to appeal to new potential fans.
Here is the only GT5 commercial thus far. It will need more than Kevin Butler to brainwash the rest of the gaming population.
