AC commercials would be a pro/con thing for all of us truely devoted fans:
Pros:
-More ppl would buy the game, ensuring a sequal.
-We wouldn't be losers when we ask someone if they've heard of AC before, and then moan after they say no.
-The hype would increase...maybe another demo vid.
-Video game stores would open at midnight for release because of the popularity

Cons:
-More ppl would be there opening day
-We wouldn't be the select few...a brotherhood if you will of AC fans.
-A flood of newbies to our forum

So really...would it be worth it to put out a commercial? I think it is...cause I REALLY WANT IT AT MIDNIGHT OPENING NIGHT!!!!!!!!

Ah!Ha!Ha!

Now that's a good marketing plan! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

But the best marketing plan is the promotional Youtube posts for Halo 3! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Whoever Youtubes frequently will know what I mean!

You don't generally see commercials for games until after their release. That's just the way it is.

Thats definately not always the case, but I'll give you that they are always like the week before, or the month after http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

I AC one will probably be a CG with a bit of Gameplay at the end, like the PGR4 one... if there is an advert.

Considering how popular Youtube has become, I bet Ubi can save alot of money by just not giving out a tv trailer, or if they do one that does not cost as much money as many other commercials...

Best marketing so far, according to me atleast, project Cloverfield.

LOL yes in the movies since all the people go and watch a movie like they should have done it for the movie 300 since thats a popular movie.

The best commercial stunt would be to kill the president of the united states and the only clue left behind is a bloody feather. Man that would be awesome! I HATE BUSH!

You better watch what you say man^
Threats temporarily void the First Amendment like unlocking voids an iPhones warranty.

Next thing you know the FBI is knocking at your door.

I'm in Canada so I think I'm safe...or am it DUNDUNDAAAAAAA!!!

Back on topic:
Commercials would be great because there isn't much of a risk with them since everyone who plans to buy it now (before commercials, if there ends up being any) probably heard about it on the Internet and have already seen some gameplay footage. So the commercials would be to bring in more customers who will see it on tv then go on the internet when they're bored and search it up to see if it's worth the buy (which of course it is).
