201w ago - Today Evan Brody, the Marketing Manager of Slurpee & Big Gulp Brands, has announced that PlayStation 3 'Kratos Fury' is invading local 7-Eleven stores as part of some cool God of War III promotions.
To quote: I'm the guy who gets to work with cool properties like God of War III to create promotions for Slurpee drinks. For those of you who can't get enough of Kratos before the March release (let's face it, that's most of us), I've got some exciting news to share!
For the past few months we've been busy working with our good friends at Mountain Dew and at SCEA to formulate the perfect blend of ferocious blackberries and frosty limes to create "Kratos Fury," the featured Slurpee flavor for the months of February and March at your local 7-Eleven stores.
And to sweeten the deal, this vengeful delight will be available in one of four exclusive God of War III Slurpee cups. The limited Kratos Fury flavor and exclusive God of War III cups will hit 7-Eleven stores across the U.S. starting next week, but I've got your first look at the artwork below
264w ago - Having not ever been an owner of a PS3 or PSP, I wasn't aware of the bias that retailers are showing towards the PlayStation 3 console.
One of the guys that I work with is a huge PlayStation fan. Not a fanboy, mind you, but a normal person who happens to like the PS3 over the 360.
I've heard him talk about it before, but I've always passed it off as simple bad customer service or people just being overly hyped about a 360 game over the PlayStation ones, but after "Emergence Day 2″, I was shocked and appalled at the level of anti-PS3 sentiment he had to deal with.
It all started with him telling me that every time he went to his local game store, a small "mom and pop" type store where he has shopped for quite a while, they constantly bugged him to show up to the midnight release of Gears of War 2. On every visit, it seemed, he had to remind the shop owner that he did not have a 360 and had no intention of buying one.
I chalked this up to the store owner, a gamer himself, just being hyped about the release of the game. Gears of War 2 is a huge title, after all. After delving into it some more over several days of conversation, I soon learned that it was much more heinous than just a simple overzealous game store proprietor.
