Shouting “FIRST!” isn’t big, clever or remotely interesting
Since when has “FIRST!” been a genuine announcement?
I was lucky enough to attend last week’s THQ Gamer’s Week, or whatever they call it now, in which we were able to play… well, lots of THQ games. But one thing from the event sticks out more than others – Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hryb taking to the stage to announce the 360 would see an exclusive map (okay, fine) and that the upcoming DLC would arrive on the MS console first.
Not ‘exclusively’, not ‘not on PS3ly’ – just first.
And this was at an event for the videogames media – not the public, not fans or advertisers or buyers or anything like that. This was an announcement made to the apparent professionals. I present this information without comment. Or at least, with very little comment. Make of it what you will.
