It has been revealed that MS is not just partnering with Burger King for the launch of Kinect. Microsoft's motion sensing peripheral will be gracing around 400 million cans of Pepsi as well as over 60 million cereal boxes from Kellog's.
. Another round of Coca-Cola vs Pepsi.
Screw both of em. Dr Pepper FTW!
Agreed, I used to drink Pepsi all the time but Dr Pepper just tastes better.
dr.pepper teh best however: screw all soda's...that carbonated sh!t just doesn't suit me anymore =/ it messes up my body, just ain't good for you
What the.. my mind is so full of fuck right now. MS is partnering with... BURGER KING? And PEPSI??? For the launch of Kinect, which the games lineup consists of 50% fitness games. Oh sweet, sweet irony..
US Dr Pepper > UK Dr Pepper One is a fruit drink the other is iced tea. I think but they taste completely different.
What's the difference?
UK Dr Pepper is owned by Coca-cola and is the same old crap... US Dr Pepper is a seperate company to Coca-cola and Pepsi
dont you get it? They partner up with BK and pepsi so people get fat, then in their time of depression they look down and they see an ad for kinect. They get their hopes up, buy the product, and get all those fitness games, and get bored after a day or two and go back to BK. The cycle continues, while the companies profit. Its all good business.
i like the swedish dr pepper, ti taste like coca cola and vanilla icecream mixed in a good way, mix it in a bad way and you get vanilla coke.
I hate DP, Im defintetly a Pepsi & Coke guy. I cant believe Microsoft is spending over half a Billion dollars on advertising Kinect. It is the ultimate slap in the face to their current core user. That much money could produce 20-30 AAA games, and they spend all that money on the very people that dont even own their console. (The Wii crowd) Hey Microsoft, we want you to spend money on core games, not on brainwashing tactics. Show us some great products, not a bunch of deceiving advertisments.
"Agreed, I used to drink Pepsi all the time but Dr Pepper just tastes better." Lets pretend that the title above is this "Kinect to hit 400 million cans of Dr.Pepper and 60 million cereal boxes" now... Do you still like Pepper?
That's $460 million right there. A possibility.
Diet Dr. Pepper for me!
@ evilblackcat Yes, still like Dr. Pepper haha
Dr pepper owns both
Club soda is for the real men. lol
they weren't kidding when they said they are launching this like a new console cycle. hell yeah
The serious marketing dollars behind the product and the launch partners sure makes you feel the product will be properly supported. With that kind of money, they aren't just going to abandon it. MS was serious when they said it's like a launch of a new console.
They won't abandon the Kinect. They're abandoning the customers that made XBox relevant.
We used to have "good luck playing sales". Now i must say "good luck playing marketing campaigns".
I wonder if this is just being shown on the cans or if there are going to be prizes for specially marked cans/boxes/etc.? Also, where the heck is Sony with the Coca-Cola advertising/contest deal? I would have started that already to beat out Kinect rather than it looking like they will be hitting the streets at the same time. Sony, you're going to get wiped all over the floor with this sort of advertising management. I know it's hard dealing with a company that literally has money laying all over the place to use for marketing, but that doesn't mean you don't try your hardest anyway.
MS is actually really smart if you think about it they are advertising on things that are not healthy at all and those same people might be a little overweight and insecure with their weight and they will look at kinect and see all the fitness games and will most likely get it for smart on m$ part. Actually pure genius.
Kinect reminds me of transformers the movie. Before it was out (transformers part 1)nobody other than hardcore fans could tell you anything about it. This device will be on the minds of everyone by Christmas.
all this money into markting kinect.. why not just put this money into making it work better or so that you didnt have to remove things that 'costed' to much.. -_-
Isn't Microsoft overadvertising Kinect?
They are just trying their hardes not to fail woth it in sales, I guess even if that means there profit cancels out with the money spent into advertising. I think they may be putting more into this than what they did for Halo 3. Thing is I doubt itd get the same results.
Coca-Cola is better. Boycott Kinect!!!! joking (well except the coke is better part).
Coke + Bacardi(cuba libre)FTW!!!!
Coke and Jack (Daniels) FTW!!
Maybe they will have a promotion where you drink a 12pk of pepsi or collect five UPCs off boxes of select cereal to claim a free Kinect. That's what they're going to have to do eventually anyway when Kinect turns out to be better used as a paper weight.
Such a good day for trolling isn't it?
Why couldn't have Sony picked Pepsi? Dang it.
What a huge marketing machine....
So it's. Move - Coca-cola Kinect - Pepsi And cheerio's vs cornflakes? It's all good.lol
...its always coca cola, holidays are coming, holidays are coming... man i love those christmas coca cola adverts, it really makes it feel like christmas when you see them on t.v
i wonder if you will see the polar bear playing move
Really looking out for your good health. Drink a supersized pepsi and eat a burger n fries and burn the calories playing Kinect in your living room. Never see the light of day. Always looking out for what's best, Microsoft. And I thank you.
I don't even drink soda...
. Just mineral water all the way, lol.
hate to tell u coca cola makes bottled dasani water. lol
So are they gonna line up 400 million cans of Pepis and 60 million boxs of cereal with kinect all over the cans and boxes then let us shoot them? Hope their 500 million dollar advertisement plan does not go to hell. But i doubt it will at all this will be big. BTW MS what is up with Pepsi I may not like soda that much but coca cola would be my pick anyday.
takes a shit on the floor and leaves on topic: people on N4G dont like Kinect
and get a free Kinect
Buy a tube of KY get a PS Move free
lol...im down for that
Mountain Dew FTW!
...in trashbins worldwide.
How about some Job creation instead of 500 million in advertising.
Kinect will be huge. It will probably sell much more than 3 millions with this kind of advertising, and such a big launch line-up of games. Making it so easy to pick up and play was a smart strategy. MS are offering something different than its competitiors and it will pay off bigtime. I bet there will be even more game announcements leading up to its release.
this post of yours read just like an M$ PR release?
With half a billion you can employ quite a few forum dwellers.
Because he's trying to improve his skills for the next application at MS PR Dpt where he'll be rejected again.
is magically delicious! /s
move to hit rock bottom! cmon sony, do something!
panda cola ftw
Xbox users got better advertising, ps3 users got better games.
Simple enough question in itself.
He answered your question already. Reread.
I see the fitness games selling, based on the MS's current price point. I mean look at Wii fit, and that required a silly board. Can't comment on the rest.
Don't be fooled by hype and fanboy garbage BabyTownFrolics. Despite what the people on this site say, people on other gaming sites don't like Kinect either. Just recently came off a conversation on Joystiq and almost everyone agrees that Kinect's line up is almost complete crap. I mean seriously, 4 dance games? If Microsoft is trying to expose the limitations of Kinect, it's working.
MS Marketing > all Pepsi, Burger King = ppl who like Burgers and playing games! Cell, HOME = ppl who dont buy games cause they play second life!
I still remember the Burger King games that came out a few years ago, quite fun for only a few dollars each. I buy nothing but Pepsi products anyway, so more good news. I'm glad Microsoft is showing how to correctly launch something. As I've been saying for months, Kinect is a "Soft console" launch.
This is what's wrong with this gaming generation. More money probably went into advertising than Kinect development because MS cares more about sales than making products that actually work well.
They were not kidding when they said the launch will be bigger than the XB360 launch. Regardless of if the thing flops or not - marketing people must be hoping for more launches like this.
Actually the wii-fit board has some sweet tech inside it and models that are used in hospitals etc cost $$$$$
