Can't understand why Activision are so unfriendly toward the media at EB Expo.

It sure sends the signal that they are trying to prevent damaging reports before the game hits release.

It is a very strange thing. Let's piss off the media who report on our games.

It's like they've decided media will always be negative toward COD games so they want word of mouth from consumers to be their promotion.

WOW! I knew they were kind of up themselves but this takes the cake and two years in a row for you guys. Sucks hard!

God, that "Call me Maybe" on loud repeat would have killed me.

Wanted 24/7 Gangnam Style instead
RocknRolla  +   722d ago
If they played Gangnam Style for 3 days I would actually dance and I bet there would be a flashmob for it as well haha

I was also initially barred from entering the Black Ops 2 booth with my media pass. I didn't understand the logic at all. On the 2nd day I flirted a bit with the girl at the front and she told me to line up with the "Express" card holders, but I still had to wait 15 minutes (which is OK I guess...)

My understanding is that Activision is more intent on getting actual CoD community feedback than media feedback, which is understandable considering how relentless some media can be towards the brand.
