Five Blockbusters Sony Failed To Properly Advertise

Ah PS3, the console with some of the most amazing titles ever forged. FPS, Action-Adventure, RPGs, JRPGs, Platformers, MAG, Heavy Rain, All bigs games no? Indeed, Sony has managed, over the years, to bring some of the best gaming experiences to owners of its flagship console – but there's a problem:

I love how "gamers" and "trainees" are allowed to report.

If MAG is suffering from anything, its that alot of reviewers based their opinions on the beta and not the full game.

WKC probably needed more time in development. Looking at the very first trailer, seeing characters actually interacting in combat and not just whacking each other like in MMOs, if they had been able to deliver than alone it would have been something major.

From the beginning of this generation up to this very day, Sony has not done a good job with advertising.

Yes they're trying harder but it's still weak compared to MS's efforts.

Everyone I know loves them. They haven't advertised well in the past but SCEA has been doing really well lately.

The only thing MS does is put their logo at the end of someone else's commercials.

Though that obviously seems to be enough.

@Remember, Yeah, so what happened to MAG? Or White Knights?

I saw nothing.

WKC is no where near as good as most PS3 out there and it never looked like it was going to be a big deal so I do not know why the article would even mention it.
