    Well done Deep Silver – Next year, I’m going to hire an agency to create a CGI video that has nothing to do with my game, then stick it on YouTube.

    Best use of social media my ass.

    Activision’s Marketing win is well deserved. Whipping up a frenzy for the same old CoD year after year takes a professional skill that can only be admired ;-)
