Heavy Rain Coach Bus Rolls Out
...it may be one of the coolest things I've ever seen.
It's the Heavy Rain Coach Bus and it's clearly rolling out to help promote the new PlayStation 3 exclusive that drops in a few weeks time. Unfortunately, according to PlayStation LifeStyle, you won't see this bus on the streets right now unless you live in Germany, so we're all wondering if there will be more coach buses. Sony's advertising has been spotty in the past, although we should probably admit that the "It Only Does Everything" campaign for the PS3 has been a huge hit. We still say they need to advertise the system's exclusives better; recently, only Uncharted 2: Among Thieves got some serious ad time, but perhaps that's the start of a new trend. There's little doubt that Quantic Dream's promising and ambitious title will need all the promotion it can get, primarily because it doesn't appeal to the mainstream "twitch-gamer" crowd. The other two factors that might assist sales are high review scores and controversy surrounding the game's nudity, but I still wanna see that coach bus around here. 'looks out window'
We remind you again to stay tuned for our review of the hotly anticipated game in question; it will go up after 9 a.m. PST on Wednesday, February 10. Are you excited?
