This week’s pro-con list is Sony’s “Should We Change the Ico Box Art for the US?” Pro-Con List, which I imagine a committee of chimps worked through while coming up with a marketing plan for the game.
- Our research shows people really love characters wearing bull horns, we need to show that feature off.
- People might not recognize that this is a quote-unquote video game unless we show a blatantly rendered character on the box.
- The target market associates artsy with gay, they also associate gay with bad. Let’s make it as ugly as possible.
- We’ll lose all respect from anyone with a sense for good art.
