    WTF i dont remember making a thread.

    I was wondering where this came from, it came from the Release Date Thread.

    Now to how to promote Wipeout HD, hmmm i could pesker a few people who are still yet to purchase a PS3 console. Ah i got a good idea, i could make a video on my YouTube channel to promote this game, then i would get into **** with copyright issues with the music artists and Sony.... hmmm.

    Seriously a few commercials on TV would do well to promote this game. But if some well know music artists that are used in this game like Kraftwerk and Mason maybe there can promote this game inside there upcoming single or albums. Good idea hey, 'i assist you, you assist me'.

    Do you remember intentionally going offtopic ["This is a bit off topic, but how will SL and Sony attract/gain new buyers".....] in the ^Release Date^ thread? Well, 16 other posts followed offtopic without ever coming back to the release date, so I made them into a thread of their own.

    But.. er.. back to the uh... topic.

    I know a friend of mine is likely to buy a PS3 once it finally releases.

    Well, to be frank, my purchasing HD depends on someone getting their act together and offering the extra Pulse content to the rest of the world. Whether I purchase a PS3 is dependent on whether I purchase HD. Cascade effect.

    @Norfolk'n'Clue, Axel, and Flashback Jack: But what do you think Sony should do to advertise the game?

    It's actually 92 Million! Enough for pay for the download for everyone too.

    I'll be curious to see what Sony comes up with-- but I don't expect much outside of paid online advertisements at videogame websites and the like. I sure haven't seen much advertisement in general for online distributed games. On the other hand, digital distributed content seems to "have legs," with more drawn out sales. Hopefully Wipeout HD will be cheap enough and have good reviews so that it becomes a staple download even for future PS3 owners

    So no Wipeout HD for you?

    I have completely given up hope on the DLC

    I was mainly thinking of them hitting the Gaming websites, Gametrailers, IGN, Gamespot etc. We all know games sales depends on reviews and lest be honest, there is a lot of bias from the gaming press.

    Viral marketing does work. I remember the billboard advert for Fusion with the setting of London and a track going around it. It definitely caught my eyes as i didn't even know it was for Wipeout fusion!!!

    This is supposed to be their flagship game for the PSN network. If they are going for TV ads and billboards, then it's got to be clever but also note that this game is downloadable only. I think these guys may have shot themselves in the foot by not making this into Blue Ray. But you can counter argue this by saying that the distribution method of delivering the game via the PS Store is far, far cheaper.

    Anywho, only time will tell.
