The "Karissa the Destroyer" footage of a 10-year-old girl brutally defeating veteran Super Smash Bros. players was staged and paid for by GameStop.
not surprised at all many called it long before it was admitted.
Lying to people isn't good marketing.
Microsoft begs to differ. ... well, lies by omission count, right?
If the sales of Black Ops II on Wii U are any indication... You're right.
Punk'd. Gamestop edition lol
I'll cry all night.
What benefit did this video give to GameStop? XD
This is why I only browse at GameStop when I'm near one. I don't buy anything from them anymore like I did in the past. I'm just there to look at the new games. Sometimes the employees are cool. Sometimes the employees are fools. Depends on which one you go to. Stunts like this only makes me have more trust issues with them. Either way, I'll just continue to be a browser.
If this surprises or disgusts anyone, then you guys need to realize that this type of thing happens everywhere. It was never meant to be taken as real, it was a publicity stunt/free marketing for Nintendo, Smash Bros., and Gamestop. This type of stuff is nothing new in today's world.
