More on Tera Patrick and Saint's Row 2

ANALYSIS not news.

If you were marketing this game you could spend, say, £200,000 getting David Hockney to do the box art or you could spend the same money on Tera Patrick being a "Special Producer" and both would get you masses of worldwide publicity. But that publicity would reach different audiences. And which audience would be most likely to buy Saint's Row 2?

I agree. Tera Patrick is a very clever marketing move, and she brings a surprising amount of business and production smarts to boot, beyond the obvious titillation.

As long as they keep the balance, and don't go too tacky, this should work a treat and has got a lot of people talking about Saints Row 2 that previously weren't paying attention.

It's one thing to get a porn actress to voice a porn actress in your game... but this just makes them look desperate.

Superfragilistic3781d ago

And yet look at what we're talking about! :/

Bottom line it's worked and got people talking bout Saints Row 2.

If you looked at Tera Patrick's expertise beyond the bedroom/longueroom/bathroom/ki tchen/gym/outdoors/etc, she's actually a pretty highly accomplished producer (film and games) and businesswoman (film and print media) and has assets well beyond her explicit appeal.

I'm talking about Tera Patrick... and what a desperate move including her in this is...

Funny you mentioned all that... because I didn't see ANY opf that in the promo video... all I saw was game footage and a pitiful tease of a strip tease...

It's a shame such beautiful women couldn't do something better of their lives.

Fishy Fingers3781d ago

What? No body forced her into her chosen profession. She's become world famous, rich and all this from just having sex, something that she obviously enjoys very much.

Shes probably very happy with how things have turned out for her.

AllroundGamer3781d ago

are you a male feminist? :D

Sitdown3781d ago

I really do not think you guys xaphanze's post. It is sort of sad when females or males have to sexually exploit themselves........evolved prostitution. Would you guys be okay if your girlfriends or wives changed their careers to this? Besides, I think so many people underestimate the negative effects of the "industry" she worked/works in.

CViper3781d ago

Freedom of choice to do what you want to do. Its her doing something she likes, to make a living. As long as shes not causing physical harm to anyone, no one should be judging her or anyone else's legal profession.

JsonHenry3781d ago

What is wrong with her using her body to make money? If I could trick people into paying me to see me naked I would do it in a heartbeat!

IdleLeeSiuLung3781d ago

Well it is certainly a God given gift and by that I mean her looks. I personally think it is unfortunate that she uses her looks and sexuality to make money, but hey who am I to complain if people are willing to pay for it.

However, considering how intelligent she is, I'm sure she could have done well without the need for "evolved prostitution". I kind of like that word.

deeznuts3781d ago

Ladies suckin you know what on the streets for crack money is pretty sad. Tera, from what I hear, is a damn successful business woman.

What is a shame is she had to get implants. Her knockers were fantastic before it. But who's going to complain about bigger jubblies???????

Sitdown3780d ago (Edited 3780d ago )

It is not a view point forced on me...but one that I adopted and accept. Again I ask....would you be okay with your wife or girlfriend doing it? What about your mom if her looks would enable her to. In addition I go back to the point that so many people do not understand the ill effects of pornography. Perhaps I am not just speaking out about her, as I really do not know what she does on the sexual front.......but about the industry as a whole. While you can say you admire the female body...point is, you become desensitized and get a jaded few. And by your point........its okay to do what you like doing as long as it does not cause any physical harm to anybody? Hmmm......I guess verbal abuse and verbal sexual harassment by a pedophile is okay in your book.

get a porn star to promote ur game...that doesn't look desperate at all.

W S K3781d ago (Edited 3781d ago )

i think that she fits good in the whole "dont take it too serious" style of the game.

Saints Row is full of sarcasm...and that "Tera Patrick is now a Producer" thing is nothing more to me...so...this is (like some of you said) a nice way to get some attention (THAT THIS GAME DESERVES!!!).

Saints Row was a relly entertaining game (but the most people dont gave it a try because they thought its a GTA rip off.....but its not as easy as that...look beneath the surface :D)

No...SERIOUS...Saints Row is more a parody of GTA than a rip off...Freeworld games are selling really well since GTA (i mean: GTA was the first freeworld game if im right....hmmmm...i dont know)
and as you see in the whole business "if something works and sells well" someone will come up with "almost the same product"...thats the way it was and always will be...its called COMPETITION!!! :D
