When Did Blurry Images Become Teasers?

when blurry images became teasers.

Yeah talk about lame, I mean what the hell are we suppose to be able to tell from that...

If that was suppose to get me excited about the game then you can just file this in your file cabinet under, "Epic Fail"

It's a teaser. It got people talking and guessing. It did its job

MidnytRain2523d ago


It's still lame. No one seems to know what is.

theonlylolking2523d ago

Teasers never reveal a big part or any part of the game. This did a good job as a teaser. You can make out a little bit of stuff and since you cannot tell what it is fully it gets peeps talking about it.(like alpha said)

This is like Apple "teasing" its next iPad by throwing it into a bucket of diarrhea and leaking pictures of the bucket.

It teases in the sense of "Haha, you can't see it!", but it doesn't actually tease ANYTHING about the game at all. It doesn't make me interested in what I'm missing out on, and it doesn't make me want more (since there's no substance to begin with).

It would have the same effect on me if they released a "screenshot" that was just a blank white picture.

What if the whole game looks like that? I suppose it would count as a teaser then, right? My assumption is that the whole game will be blurry.

And to answer your question, when creativity expired.

Yeah it makes no sense. At least make it so we can decipher something from the image, otherwise, it is 100% pointless and just irateness people.

I agree...there's no point to releasing this photo. It's a cheap attempt to get their name back into the news.

SweatyFlorida2523d ago (Edited 2523d ago )

Agreed. The thing is too blurry to make out ANYTHING. I remember their first teaser they showed, people went as far as saying they see a "Lockness monster" in the teaser xD (when broken down most made out a farm/station/building.) When your teasers are that bad then you know your doing something wrong, and in this case, Respawn hasn't figured that out yet.

I think Respawn needs some teaser tips from Naughty Dog xD (The Last of Us)

Riggans422523d ago

I couldn't agree more. The Last of Us did it the right way.

There's been a lot of things this year that have made me question the video game marketing strategies of late.

Paragon2523d ago

It's kinda sad, because... Well, you can't decypher anything from the teaser, thus... Nobody's excited over it. Well, most people aren't.

Release a clear image with a cool phrase, and then we are talking.

DarkBlade46582523d ago

Exactly, I can hardly get excited over this, when it could literally be anything, though the fact that it is made by ex-infinity ward people is probably already saying a lot.
