I was looking at the Sony website because I need to get my PS3 serviced and I noticed they are having a contest. All you have to do is create a two minute stating why the Playstation 3 is the best Next-Gen console! If you win you get an 80 GB Playstation 3 and 5 pack of games. Not a bad deal for a couple of minutes of work. Click here for all the details. Happy video making.
I am not sure if everyone has seen this, but Burger King is promoting Viva Pinata: Party Animals. They have special toys, a website dedicated to the game and free wallpapers that you can download. Hit the link to get all your pinata goodness: Click here
I was watching TV the other day and I saw this commercial for a special flavor of Mountain Dew to coincide with Halo 3 release. I thought that there was no way that this could be a good thing. They are just pandering to us as gamers. Slap something to do with a video game on the bottle and people will but it, right? In order to conduct a scientific experiment I got my hands on a couple of bottles of the new Dew. Let me just tell you that the stuff is gross. It tastes like someone put a red bull into a mountain dew and then topped it off by drizzling liquid sugar in the flavor of cherry. It tastes like absolute garbage. While the ad is pretty good:
I have to ask are any gamers out there offended that they would give us such an inferior product and expect us to just take it? I imagine it is probably how the hip-hop community feels about the Boost Mobile ads or teachers/strippers feel about the new Carl's Jr Ad:
I personally feel insulted when companies take things I love and try to trick me into buying things just because they are loosely associated with that action. Am I the only one that can distinguish a shitty product from a good one regardless of what is on the bottle?
