Gold for Jetpack Campaign a clever way to sell some cheapness

Posted by: Nathan at 8/31/2009 10:23 PM
Capcom's marketing team has taken the dangerous road of viral marketing to promote the upcoming Dark Void. Preordering the title from this aptly named website, or gamestop.com will give gamers a download code they may use to unlock a golden jet pack for use in multiplayer matches. In other words gold=cheap because those who pre-order will be dominating the air with their golden jet packs during multiplayer matches, staying aloft with unlimited boost while the rest of us peons aim into the air hoping to swat them down. Wait a sec, this doesn't actually apply to multiplayer. This is just a pay to use cheat for the single player mode. Well that's a world of a difference. So if this video inspires you, or you like to get shiny things with your pre-ordered game you can check out the unofficial website for the golden jet pack upgrade or Game Stop to get your pre-ordering on.
 


Calling all adrenaline junkies!  Capcom announced today that its highly anticipated action-adventure game, Dark Void, has received an extra boost of speed thanks to a new pre-order item available exclusively from Gamestop. Fans who preorder early will receive bona-fide jetpack bling with a downloadable golden jetpack which gives players unlimited boost ability.   The new boost upgrade will make you an unstoppable master of the skies – fly faster, avoid enemy fire, run down your foes and own the battlefield – all with unlimited turbo boost and special moves!  Check out the new Gold4Jetpack site at www.gold4jetpack.com
