- We live in a very competitive world, and this is apparent in the video game industry where publishers and developers are constantly trying to get a leg up on their competition, whether it's through clever marketing or brilliant feats of engineering.
But what is NOT acceptable is when a publisher or developer uses bribes to gain an advantage. Che Chou
, the Forza Motorsport community manager at Turn 10, has apparently done exactly this.
Here is Chou's post on the Forza forums, to quote:
"Hey all. Apparently, CNET.com is having a face-off between Forza and GT. We all know which game is we'd like to see win, so go [Register or Login to view links]
And vote for Forza Motorsport 3! Afterwards, come to this thread and post a message letting us know you've done it. We'll gift you a random unicorn! It's that easy. Do it now!"
So what's a "unicorn"? It's a very rare type of car in Forza 2 that can only be found in the game's Auction House. Some of them are sold for millions of credits, and are comprised of a handful of vehicles, including the 2005 Lotus Exige Espionage, and 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI TME.
So the fact that Turn 10 is giving these out for free to users who vote for Forza...
