Any Marketing for The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct?

PlayStation Beat: With a Walking Dead themed game coming out tomorrow, you would think we would have seen some marketing for it by now. (PS3, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Does it any one care?!? The game is getting really bad reviews!!

Has it really? This game has no buzz around it. I wasn't aware that their were ANY reviews.

It got all of one review. AND, Activision didn't send out review copies, and it was posted 11 hours ago. So the reviewer had very little time to play and review it. I'd wait until more reviews are out. Not saying it's good, but give it a chance.

Agreed. If a game gets bad reviews, no one should care about it because other people should dictate what games should be on our radar /s

This game is trying way too hard to fly under the radar. Despite the developers assertions, I have a feeling it's still as terrible as the preview that was released a couple of months ago.

With a few ads on television , they could probably move some units on name alone, at least to the non-core gamers who know better.
Doubt they would take the risk of putting any more cash into this one though.

They do it all the time with ASS creed games

The assassins games are enjoyable though, this games is probably the worse for 2013 thus far.

I think the strategy is pretty clear. They want people to see the box on the shelf at a store, recognise the name and buy it before they know anything about the actual game. It's a pretty smart scam to be fair.

The marketing has already been done by the comic book and TV show. Actually letting people know anything about this game before they buy it can only hurt sales.

It will be marketed on AMC where the show is. I don't think you will say anything other than that. This game was extremely low budget compared to a lot of games this gen. If i remember correctly it was budgeted by AMC themselves so I really never expected to much.
