Horrible PR stunts can be fun

Top bad PR moves in the gaming world

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Jul 16, 2009 3:32 pm

No one likes a laugh more than I do, (insert long Monty Python skit here). I really did have a clever intro, but in the end what one person thinks is clever ends up being just plain stupid.

 

However, one person's stupidity is usually great humor for the rest of us.

 

The UK flavor of GameSpy has a great read posted that I could not resist sharing with everyone. They took the time to cover the best PR Blunders in the world of gaming. I suppose that in some way this could have been inspired by the recent announcement of the inclusion of a pair of working night vision goggles in Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition. After all when presented with an example of how to do something right I imagine that you think about how not to do something.

 

Take a break and give these a read. I think my favorite is still the beheaded goat by Sony.

Have a good laugh here.
