This quote sums it up nicely from a user on Gametrailers.com:
Wait, what...? They made this puny teaser trailer so people will go to a website and unlock a slightly less puny teaser trailer...?
Or do you have to link/tweet/share it...?
pretty much link tweet and share. grr
Eh, weird idea, market and not market fully but make the customer hunt it down...
I think the principle is this:
Market with a trimmed version of trailer
Offer Extended version for those who share
We (ubisoft) get 3x free exposure (their own trailers, plus those who share, tweet and link)
Dedicated consumers are rewarded with extended trailer
Consumers then encourage their friends to do the same.
It's clever, but a waste of time. the full trailer will surface after E3...
Meh, wrong way to "activate consumers"...
Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, but EA is already doing that with The Secret World and the FB game The Secret War. In the Secret War you deploy your agents (ie your friends that you have to convince to play the FB game) in an attempt to keep areas of the planet under your faction's (Illuminati, Templar and Dragon) control.
Each week, a "War Objective" is given ("Control as many possible European Territories while maintaining control of your Home Territories", etc) and each day a winning faction is selected. And each victory opens a bit more of a teaser trailer for that faction. The one with more victories will get to see their teaser trailer first.
It's the end of the world as we know it...
kill me now.
You post a lets hope EA does not see this topic ... on a forum that is daily scouted by EA hirelings ?
Do you mean something like this end of the world?
Anyway, this won't give EA any bad ideas...they already have them or will come up with them by themselves...*sigh*
You want to watch the trailer to our upcoming game? Buy our app!
You want to get the best weapons in our multiplayer? Buy our victory pack!
You want to experience the full single-player campaign? Buy the game for PC, PS and XBox and you'll get it (and follow us on Twitter so you can find out what happened to Emily Wong)
(Sorry, I'm cynical today )
Yeah, i'm so Post-post-modern right now it's unreal.
These guys are evil. Do they not have any morals at all. Oh wait they are these guys.
They are pure evil. @htewing
That just means we need this guy, or we need to be this guy:
Yeah. Let's get him to solve this problem.
I think he knows a hell of a lot more about those random things that happen in the universe than EA/Bioware.
Agreed. I'd love to see what a sonic screwdriver does to the ending.
It's glowing green, but I doubt Kiddy Glowbutt would enjoy that kind of... synthesis...
Thank god the reapers aren't made out of wood or hairdriers.
