I think if the next one was marketed better it might sell better than the first. Unless the first one has tainted the IP name already. Not to mention it will be a different dev team working on it as the KAOS studio has been shut down.
Frankly, i still take the stance of "If it's a good game, it doesn't need marketing"
Word of mouth is MORE than sufficient in this day and age, and good games sell, fact. In fact ads can do more harm then good. Homefront was a bad title and they spent far too much money on ad campaigns, some of which got them in trouble (balloons, anyone?)
I really don't think they need to market it better at all. They need to make a better game, period.Edited by Thingamajig - 6/15/11 at 3:04am
