Their commercials get enough views on the internet.

This game will not sell well, it's already getting covered by Halo, CoD and the Wii U.

How long did they run Assassins Creed III commercials before the game released? More than a month before release it seems like. Of course Sony games don't have the budget of an AC or Halo.

It's like this with every Sony game and no putting a trailer on the blog and their youtube channel isn't enough. There are so many people who don't see those type of adverts but they see one on t.v. and it intrigues them enough to get it or go look it up on the internet.

If I was them I'd start running commercials 2 weeks in advance. I always wondered with how much money they lose as a company how much that effects advertising...i'm sure not running big advertisements is part of cost cutting which sucks.

YouTube is just as big if not bigger than television. They advertised a lot on YouTube.


NO, it is not...at all. If you seriously believe that then you need to get off the computer and go outside more.

Sony has the WORST advertising/PR department of all gaming companies.

The WORST. THey advertise Black Ops 2 for weeks on PSN and not a single front-page item for this game. It's disgusting.

I love how 1st party developers for sony are like "yea, sony's a great publisher" 

 

I wonder how many said that with their fingers crossed behind their backs.

I don't think this game needs that kind of advertising anyway.
