Oh how painful, VP didn't get its fair share. Also some people call the show sucky, damn prejudice from the One Piece incident.
I command you to discuss this!:cool:

yea, they could have gotten with gamestop and done a lot of promotional stuff. Each gamestop got 1 poster and 1 real pinata. could had done a lot more. GOW almost sold itself really, being the game that kept us playing till H3 came out. The stigma over VP's head blows where i live, its almost like gamers around here think to compare it to virtual dog or what not.
Every time I have people over, I play VP for just a few minutes, then everyone one wants a turn. The next week my friends tell me they got VP from the bargain bin, at the local retailer saying "I cant believe such a cool game costs so little"

I think MS should have called it 'play-box 360' not xbox. So:
play-box = family, social, healthy for everyone
xbox = nerd, antisocial, parents dont understand what it is
With 'play-box' it is mainstream marketing like wii. And you sell more VP units.
So MS made the mistake with the name :(

That may be true that "xbox" means nerd but the playbox name wouldn't catch on.

I think MS would call the next one 'super 360'. Then you dont have the X
Or you have the super wii (swii) :cool:
