IGN PlayStation's Greg and Colin discuss Sony's disastrous (and at times non-existent) advertising for its games, and what needs to improve.
"Why make many exclusive games at all when you leave them to die out there?"
4-5 million copies not good enough? Dudes, STFU! Halo is Halo!!!!! Of course it sells tens of millions. Not every blockbuster is expected to make money like Batman Dark Knight. Why is every game expected to sell tens of millions of copies? Oh, and how professional to speak to us in your Sunday couch clothes and baseball caps. I would tap both of these losers out!
You're right that not all games can sell 10's of millions... but they're right that Sony doesn't market it launches enough. If you didn't keep up to date on sites like this there would be tons of great games Sony has released that you wouldn't of even heard of. I only just found out about Sly Cooper this morning because of this site.
if sony advertises uncharted better, it would sell 10 mio copies easily. I dont know why, but Sonys marketing during the psone and ps2 era was alot better. You could see gameplay footage of their games on TV those days
Sony's marketing could be better but first party exclusives have always sold well overtime.
Some have but not all. Not nearly enough.
