"We aren't showing anything 'till we get free advertising."

last i checked companies have a problem with free advertising. so many websites got threatened with lawsuits just because they were showing pictures and walk throughs/videos of pokemon white/black when it was out in japan but not the rest of the world.

If they need us to do the advertising then I'm not buying this game it just shows how lazy they are, which was reflected in brotherhood and revelations as well.

Well, this is the worst way to promote a game via word of mouth. How am I supposed to say a video game looks good without seeing the G-A-M-Eplay first?

That will be like promoting a book after reading the synopsis on the back.

Come on Ubisoft, I know you are better than this.

Aeolus426 Actually, they don't need you to advertise for them; they want you to. There is a difference.

The best advertising a company can get is by word of mouth in this day and age of social networking and information sharing. This event, though it calls for fans to share the game and recruit their friends, is Ubisoft's PR at work, since they're the ones coming up with such ideas.

I'll just wait, I don't want to be involved in advertising for this game. I might get sued for it by John Beiswenger.
