Not to be cynical, but would a stellar game really need cheap marketing ploys to sell games?

To some this could be a sign of weakness that they have to resort to a bobblehead frenzy to sell games.

I think that's reading a bit too much into it, games come out with swag all the time (even automatic hit sellers like FF in Japan). For me it's a combination of getting people talking, people loving free stuff, and getting an item that's right in line with some of the better in-ballpark giveaways.

Just trying to stir the pot a bit. Nothing wrong with a little speculation to get the blood pumpin'

The Show is giving out a free hat. I think any game, no matter how good, can benefit from something like this.
 
# 13 jmik58 @ 02/28/08 10:30 PM
Good, I hope someone enjoys the hat. No one is hoping that 2K8 or The Show do poorly, but coming from a psychology and marketing background, it's one of those questions worth mentioning.

Gamestop is doing it for ALL of their pre-orders I was told.

Lot of Met haters in the house

The Reyes bobblehead will go next to my generic Mets white-dude bobblehead from the mid 90s in my bookcase. I like my generic one but he's getting a little lonely up there by himself
