Do We Need Announcements for Announcements?

Do we need announcements for announcements? Sony announced a press conference, but they are such a big deal people would listen if they just spoke. The idea behind announcing something is that you get a lot of excitement going for something specific , be it a product or an idea. When it is announced that there is going to be an announcement about something, Zack of GamerFitNation finds this akin to people talking just to hear their own voices. (Culture, PS4)

I'm going to announce that I will announce my comment on this matter in a couple of days.
Nate-Dog  +   1099d ago
First of a number of amazingly humorous comments I presume.
BLACKBIBLE  +   1099d ago
LMAO!
aceitman  +   1099d ago
and its something a lot of people do, so people can prepare and schedule the time that is announced.
TheSaint  +   1098d ago
But how do you schedule time for the original announcement? There needs to be an announcement for that.

im going to make a report and submit an article about GameTavern announcement that he will announce on the announcement to be announced on this day where we will find out what the announcement he is going to make so this announcement has no concrete answer till the day of that announcment

Yes, you need to announce a Presser. If you dont...no one will know and no one will come.
LOOK_AT_THIS_I  +   1099d ago
More people will come if you tell them you have punch and pie. :)
1Victor  +   1099d ago

sloth3395  +   1099d ago

MontyQ  +   1099d ago

DarkBlood  +   1099d ago
hey no cats allowed on the internet lol
kneon  +   1099d ago
But on the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog, or a cat :)
MrDead  +   1099d ago
But do we need an announcement about the announcement of the announcement or will just the announcement of the announcement suffice?
KwietStorm  +   1099d ago
That is to be announced later.
Jek_Porkins  +   1099d ago
Yes! Because it's all how you play the hype game. Even the false rumors about the Xbox 720 are actually hyping people for it, because there is no bad press. People will now be even more excited when they show off the new console because they'll want to know if it blocks used games ect..

This is all getting people excited and hyped and it is most definitely necessary.

The only reason that failed is because the text was placed over the other text for texting the text to the texting machine within the text room without removing the old text within the text space. - sent as a text, dawg.
r21  +   1099d ago
Disappointed in title. Shoudl've been 'Should we stop with the announceceptions?'
Sp1d3ynut  +   1099d ago
Yes...about as much as we need opinion pieces asking if we need announcements of announcements. So no, actually.

sdozzo  +   1099d ago

koehler83  +   1099d ago
When someone decides to hold a conference, it kind of helps if they let people know when it will be held, yeah.
DEATHSTROKE-cro-  +   1099d ago
yup.
ozzywazzy  +   1099d ago

Isn't it kind of the same thing every year when apple announces the date for their Cupertino event when showing off the lastest iPhone?

As someone else said, how are ppl gunna know you have something to show if you don't "tell" them?
nolson10  +   1099d ago
The short answer is yes, otherwise how will people know they are holding a meeting/conference?? They want people to attend. That's like having a wedding but not announcing there is going to be one and just expecting everyone to show up.
profgerbik  +   1098d ago
This will sound stupid but it is sort of like this they are practically announcing announcements that have already been announced if that makes any sense..

I think that is mainly what the article means is it necessary for journalist to announce events that have already been announced plenty of times over. Using it for hits and a source of news that is already known.

you know over on another gaming site there is an announcement about a new announcement coming for a game that will be announced next year!??.
profgerbik  +   1098d ago
Short answer, no.
Alcohog  +   1098d ago
If this is in reference to the Playstation 'See the Future' trailer; that is an event. There is a very large difference.
