This topic is intended for adult discussion, and only that. Please do not flame, or troll. Thanks in advance. BTW this is my first post here!
A little background:
My career is in public relations. I work at a PR consulting firm, and manage to maintain a blog on the industry outside of work. I’m always looking for current examples of good and bad PR, specifically in the new media realm. I make this topic specifically because I’m writing a post on MvC3, to analyze how effective Capcom was in:
a) promoting this game
b) maintaining hype for returning fans
[*]c) drawing in a new crowd of casual gamers
…plus, all of the Twitter “leaks” (e.g., Lupinko) automatically make it all new media-related.
Here’s where YOU fit into all of this:
It would really strengthen the article to have direct feedback from the SRK crowd, being that we are one of the biggest and most dedicated communities waiting on MvC3. I’m looking to use quotes in my article to add credibility, and of course I’ll give you credit, by username. (By posting in this topic, you agree to possibly be quoted). Additionally, I’m just CURIOUS as to what everyone thinks.
My question is simple:
“Is Capcom’s PR Team doing a good job to promote MvC3? Why or why not?”*
All you have to do is explain your answer to the above. Please write in full sentences, and give details and examples where you can. A one-word “yes” or “no” isn’t very helpful, lol.
Thanks to all who participate, and of course I’ll link you all to the article when it’s finished!
