Gaming companies tying up with other products to market a game isn't anything new, and it seems Microsoft is kicking this up a notch with the Halo Infinite.There's a three-month exclusivity period for some of the in-game items tied to the products.
Disgusting. Premium of this is ...-Eat junk food for in-game items.
At least it's cosmetics only...
They could have used a packet or nuts. How about bottled water. How about a nut bar type thing..? No it's cakes chips and sweets.
New day, new low.
There's nothing new about this. Publishers have done this for many years.
So much promotions were planned to coincide with the release. Kinda giving off that Halo 3 vibes. Well, next year Halo fans. Hope 343 properly utilizes the extra year they got. Don't wanna disappoint the fans.
I certainly hope they take advantage lol
More like 3-6 months
You're expected to buy the snacks now, but not open them until the game releases...
Snack promotion for a game with no release date. Shameful.
By the time it releases the new promotion will be “free insulin shots with preorder”
Haha! And be sure to check out all our neat cancer treatments 😈 https://m.youtube.com/watch...
Yes very very cringey.
Typical America. Get the Fat Fatter.
As an in shape healthy American, I take offense to that. As a Midwesterner (Chicago suburbs) you’re 100% correct 😂
Where is the Doritos Pope when you need him?
Doritos are promoting ps5, pringles promoted ps4, taco bell promoted ps vita. All companies do this, I myself don't agree with it, but my diet does say otherwise lol.
Nice. For some reason gears 5 and cod get away with these things on junk food but when its halo related "hey wait that's illegal"
Isn't this in the same sense of Taco Bell having the Series X contest? Are people upset at that too?
Yes people are getting more upset with junk food especially during a global health crisis. Mexico just banned some junk food for minors.
It’s not like this will entice me to buy more junk food, haha.
Snack with Craig Promotion
I always thought I should get DLC when I buy gum. This is weirder cross-promotion than what Disney does with Star Wars
Always hated this type of promotion same thing for mountain dew game fuel and other junk food associated tie ins. Obesity and hypertension are a huge killer in most western countries tie in a seditary pursuit like gaming and it's a recipe for disaster on par with smoking. How many kgs of junk containing high fructose corn syrup will people consume to collect.all.the coloured armor how many people will as a direct result of this promotion develop a unhealthy lifestyle or put on weight that they struggle to loose. I'm not saying it's the games fault but these practices are promoting unhealthy habits yes there should be self accountability but there's to many uninvolved parents that don't educate their kids on healthy lifestyle habits. Again it's not the games fault I love gaming it's my one addiction but I work out daily because I know that sitting all day playing is horrible on my health I set my own limits but there are people out there who are vulnerable who can't set limits these are their targets
Well said, it would be nice to see some promotions related to health positivity instead of poison for the body.
and the game is still in development lol imagine being hyped for it the moment u see it but then u remember the disaster ha
At least you know its exclusive for 3 months. Think of all Butterfingers that FF7 sold only to have the items free months later on the store.
