PSXE Poll Update: Next To Drake, Killzone 2 Is Top Dog
We can always count on our readers to make the correct choice. Oh, I know it's all personal preference when it comes to polls like this - well, it's some opinion, anyway - so there's really no "correct" answer, but...okay, there is.
We asked you to tell us what the best game of 2009 was, with the exception of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which is the easy choice for just about anyone who has played that unbelievable masterpiece. And as far as we're concerned, the FPS that remains unparalleled this generation is an easy pick for second place; Killzone 2 is just an amazing accomplishment the whole way 'round. Thankfully, most of you agree, although there was - not surprisingly - a strong Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 contingency, and a great many prefer the fantastic Assassin's Creed II. Perhaps what I found most interesting is the respectable showing Demon's Souls had in this poll; I get the distinct feeling that it would barely register at other sites, but I know for a fact that we have an abnormal number of RPG fans around here. But trust me, that's a good thing, and I don't have to explain why. ;)
So anyway, this week's poll addresses a significant issue for the holiday season: Sony's marketing campaign for the PS3. As most of you know, they've really pushed the system hard over the past few months and now that we're in December, we're wondering if you would call their ad blitz a success. Do you see more people interested in the PS3? Do you see an appropriate number of TV ads? Do you see retailers more interested in recommending the PS3 to customers? Has Blu-Ray proven to be a big enough draw? Take any and all factors into consideration and then vote away.
