Buy Haze for the PS3 now and you'll not only get the game shipped to you on day 1 of its release, you'll also get a nifty drug-filled syringe. Which is really a pen, but it looks to all the world like a drug-filled syringe. (Kotaku, Thu Dec 27 2007)
Man... I would love to have that pen, but I bet there will probably be a huge caution sign DO NOT ACTUALLY INJECT YOURSELF, MIGHT LED TO INK POISON
haha. Take 2 distributed a pen at time of Bioshock, too. Syringe(plasmid) pen.
Translation: "PLEASE BUY THIS GAME!!!!" "WE ARE LOSING DEVELOPERS AND WE NEED YOUR HELP! HERE TAKE THIS GIFT!!!! PLEEEEEEEEEEEEASE
Is it just me, or is this in really bad taste? I can see the tabloid headlines now... personally I don't think gaming needs to be tarred with such marketting tricks. But as they say, there's no such thing as bad coverage, so this will ensure more coverage than any actually useable feature! :) Lets just hope the game has been worth the wait!
They gotta sell Haze somehow.

I love it....that’s fantastic!
I could see it now. Sony wants people to shoot drugs.
it will either go down as one of the DUMBEST marketing moves in history or a stroke of genius, that being said I don't see how this won't get torn apart by the pundits. This will make the Church of England flap with Resistance look like an afternoon of tea and crumpets.
If you go to the UK website and pre-order the game it says you will receive the pen, but for £49.99 or $100. No thanks.
I may just pre-order Haze to get that one of a kind pen
Better not take those pens outside,if the cops see you well it just gets embarrassing for both the cops & you. Lol. Peace Out!
Yeah amazon is the way. Also, if i told my dad to order that with the pen, he would be suspicious even though it clearly is a pen.
sit well with parents.. Can't wait to see the marketing...
will have hours of fun confusing their teachers with the syringe pen...and everyone thought the naked lady pen was amusing...
Me who was ready to inject myself with Netar :(
im gunnna go do heroin now. thanks Haze.
I'll give it a week before some american teenager tries to inject themselves with this and create a lawsuit.
Didn't they just delay this thing till August 08? No pre-order from me till I get some concrete release information.
no one said they delayed it. Some stores put it down for that date, but nothing official. Ubisofts site says January.
I was never hyped for this game... seems mediocre at best. Besides, the only FPS I can actually play... quite well.. is UT3...
Its not worth paying an extra £10 for this. Im going to amazon!
Looks cool but why do I feel a parent or activist somewhere is gonna complain? ...and Fox is gonna make a special about it? ....."invited guests today the Duty PS3 kid and the Phone Book PS3 Kid" -_-
"today's guests - kids who bought Haze and then turned into teen prostitutes after they injected themselves with the pen/syringe" Que the trailer park single parent saying they have no control over their little demon seed that sits home playing video games 22 hours a day and threatens them with a tantrum if the parent tries to turn off the system. meanwhile right now, Zhuk is formulating a rant on why M$ will have a better syringe...
Towelie- "Do you wanna get high?"
Nothing new with these pens. They had these back around when I was in middle school. Like 15 years ago.
I havent read much into Haze, but from what I'm reading here is that you inject yourself with Nectar? to gain powers? hasnt this already been done in Bioshock?
i used the plasmid that enlarges any part of your body, guess where lol.
they give you 2?.sweet a double dose of nectar,one for your balanced breakfast and one for the cold night to keep you warm and fuzzy inside.thanx haze i yearn to sleep standing up lol.
I'm actually gonna preorder haze this weekend just because of the pen. I'm pretty petty, but whatever, at least I get a pen. :)
Nectar...Meh Butthash is better!
i have the feeling that this game will be a sleeper! watch out guys!!!
Later for buying this game, let-alone pre-odering. If they wanna keep the same pS3 owners who wanted to play this game, to purchase it on launch it should come with a half-gallon of Crown Royal, and a ticket to Amsterdam.
