Top Gaming Execs Talk Marketing Strategy

TV and advertising are like peanut butter and chocolate - they just go well together, and consumers are used to it. But this tasty combination might not be so wonderful when it comes to marketing video games. At least, that's what THQ's Core Games VP Danny Bilson believes. While EA spent huge on Dante's Inferno to secure a coveted spot during the Super Bowl, Bilson isn't so sure paying for big TV spots is worth it anymore.

Speaking to the folks at the[a]listdaily, as part of a marketing feature that also included Microsoft's Albert Penello and Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime, Bilson commented, "But as far as bigger [marketing] cost against bigger game is, I think it’s about smarter. One of the bigger questions we have to ask ourselves is how important is television? How important is television to a core gamer on a non-television brand? So I think television has some relevance on WWE and UFC because I consider those TV brands. But our other stuff, I question it severely." (Albert Penello, Danny Bilson, Industry, Reggie Fils-Aime)
