Electronic Arts says that the commercial spots for Mass Effect 2 in the AFC/NFC Championship games and Dante's Inferno in the Super Bowl caused a spike in interests for both titles.
Well I would damn well hope so given the exorbitant rates they must have paid. Superbowl ads attracting interest - imagine that!
"They noted that the resulting sales broke even with the costs of running those commercials during the AFC and NFC Conference Championship games." Meaning they lost money, when the sales (revenue) broke even. They have to have a higher sales revenue than the cost of the ad to break even with the commercial cost. Or am I reading this wrong?
Yeah you are, it means the extra sales that came from the commercial spot broke even with the cost to air the commericial. The ad itself cost literally nothing to make considering its just a bunch of edited scenes together. The only real money spent was aquiring the the song heart of courage for the trailer. And they had to make a launch trailer regardless so the cost of the trailer shouldn't be a factor in your comparison.
we don't appreciate your fancy article reading skills around here and your fancy corporate match burn the heretic! for real though, sounds like they're still in the red or just about even, i'm sure they got smarter guys than me figuring this crap out @lord of balrogs-thanks for clearing that up, my head couldn't seem to wrap around it
LOL! Who stepped on your tiny penis? Oops, it must have been me! Got my shoes dirty, damn.
For ME2. Yes, I was interested. For DI. HELL NO.
HELL NO you say lol
I hope sony markets GOW III iike the second comming of christ.. facebook account/... jerocarson
2 points... Sony is probably going to market this game, but in all honesty it'll sell itself. They need to release a new demo of the final build to gain more hype. WHY ARE YOU POSTING YOUR FACEBOOK?!
lets see how many degrees we can get this one, just to mess with the natural order around here a little bit :)
Am I the only one who thinks the Mass Effect 2 commercials are terrible?? It's such an amazing games and the commercials just make it look dumb. Especially the ones where the characters talk about why the fight . . . sigh.
Dante Ad did notthing for me or anyone I know, in fact more people I talk to laugh at the fact the music suck and their was a penis looking monster. So far I haven't seen to many people wanting it, I got done watching the anime of it and I will buy that for Bluray but not the game. Not saying it is a bad game, but the art work of monsters -_- seem less scary an more of something to laugh at.
