Thursday Chat, March 6


inFamous Second Son is out in a few short weeks and it has got me thinking, does Sony do enough to promote its first party titles?



Maybe its just me, but when Microsoft has a game to promote i.e Titanfall, it's everywhere, you never hear the end of it and can't really get away from it. Yet with inFamous: Second Son's promotion, we get a dribble of information here and there, such as the odd video and screenshot. Sure Second Son is out a week later, however Microsoft has been touting Titanfall for a long time and seems to be doing a fantastic job of it, I'm not sure I can say the same for Sony and inFamous.

The same applies to previous titles in the series and even other games such as Puppeteer (which is excellent by the way) and more.

So what do you think, does Sony do enough to promote its games?

Let's Chat!

Sony don't do enough to push their games, Puppeteer and Tearaway suffered for it, and Second Son probably will too.

I agree i couldn't even tell you the release date for it. With the likes of tearaway i didn't even realise it was out until about a month after.

They do promote their titles but just not as much as others do, hell even Ninty promote their games more (Consoles are another story)

Well just played a hour and half of south park and have to say its nothing like the hype and reviews made out its not a bad game just seems no depth to it for the time i played so far i have been around the entire map in just over a hour , and the battles require no skills just pressing a button at certain times and are repeated every time you bump in to kids , maybe it might get a bit better but from what i have played so far its getting sold mon morning to get my money back

Sony are kinda a double edged sword. They only seem to promote one or two games a year, all I heard from March onwards was how Last of Us was going to be the cure for cancer. After that it was Beyond Two Souls and Killzone. Meanwhile a lot of other titles were neglected. The likes of Puppeteer and Sly Cooper are ones that spring to mind. Even Gran Turismo 6 was largely ignored in favour of the year end titles and the PS4.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
