OXCGN: "The hype for Mass Effect 3 is through the roof. Literally. EA will be launching weather balloons over key cities around the world very soon, with copies of Mass Effect 3 on them."
I can see it now: "EA's PR stunt for Mass Effect 3, which involved sending copies of the game into the atmosphere, has ended mysteriously. All of the copies have mysteriously disappeared, and are transmitting their signal from deep in space." I wouldn't be surprised if EA and Activision have bases on the dark side of the moon.
I won't get my hopes up on this one.
I will swim to the middle of the ocean for one of those copies...
I'd love to see that.
I'm also Michael Phelps. That's what makes it possible. ;)
lol screw that Chtullu jellyfish and sharks are out there
That would be great if one just landed right at your doorstep...
Or hits you in the head lol "Son of a bitch! WTF! Oh hello sexy!" :P *moments later getting trampled by Mass Effect fans*
Providing it's the right platform. I couldn't imagine a worse nerd-torture than getting a game early but for the wrong platform. Worth buying a different console or a new pc? ...maybe... maybe.
Haha, well if nothing else, you could sell it for a good bit. XD
"Each game has a GPS tracking device onboard and fans can track their return to the Earth" *later news report* "Man-child dies after being viciously mauled to death by dogs guarding their owners private lot in downtown New York." *even later news report* "Self-righteous and entitled mother of man-child sues EA for publicity stunt gone wrong. "They forced ma baby to do it. If they didn't run the event, he'd still be here *flail*"" *etc etc etc*
what if it falls and cracks somebody in the head i smell a lawsuit
Or maybe.. In the knee..? Oh shii-- ! *runs away from charging mob*
I used to laugh at that joke, but then I took a copy of ME3 to the knee
What is most disturbing to me is someone in Marketing or an Ad agency thought this up and got a decent pay check doing so, and worse someone at EA thought "thats a great idea" and approved the spend on it.
True, but whenever I get into a discussion like this, I always remind everybody...."Well, hey, we ARE talking about it, right?"
All the aliens will grab the games. No early copies for us pathetic humans.
Talk about mana from heaven...
"I've been playing Duck Hunt for 25 years in anticipation of this day."
The Reapers are going to get those copies.
If the Ipad can survive space(proof at the bottom), then just imagine a copy of Mass Effect 3 survive space. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
... I am gonna get knocked out by a video game falling from the sky...
If I get a copy, I'll sell it on eBay and make a killing.
It could fall on a car's windshield going 60mph on the freeway... It could happen...
A friend of mine threw one of these balloons with a camera attached. It landed on a runway, and was run over by a car... Not unlikely at all, no. By the way, the temperatures get to -50ºC, ¿does the box + disc resist this?
X360 Torrent coming in 5....4.....3... (But srsly, 360 piracy is far far far more substantial than even PC piracy lately. 95% of the time there's a 360 torrent before anything else.)
that is downloaded like 10 times, while pc is downloaded 100000 times.
interesting. I just hope they weather sealed the case or else the disk will be damaged.
Well, I'm probably gonna have to murder someone pretty soon... Time to gear up.
Well, that's an interesting way to promote your game! I sure wish they would send of some those copies towards Chicago though.
