Konami is promoting on the wrong forums

Postby suikodian » Thu Feb 26, 2009 11:30 am

Konami should have focused on other gaming websites to promote suikoden. In my opinion Konami would not achieve its goal of expanding the fanbase by adverting on suikosource/suikox, which are mostly visited by fans. Gaming forums such as NeoGAF and RPGFan are better suited to attract new fans to the series.

I haven't seen any advertisements on Suikosource of SuikoX. Konami hasn't been promoting anything, we are.

Yes, and no.

I do agree with the notion that Konami should put far more efforts into marketing it through general gaming sites to touch larger gamer population, but them approaching specific fansites probably have more to do with the fact that Suikoden Tiekreis breaks away from almost all established conventions of the series, potentially leading to alienating a good amount of their already "loyal" fans.

I'm not surprised. Last time they set up an official fansite for Suikoden and a handful other RPG series with a hefty amount of goodies given out to generate activities, but it was unceremoniously shut down without much explanation not too long after. Sad.

The question is are they promoting the current game only or also looking for ideas on how to move forward in case their attempt at creating a different world falls flat.

Suikoden Tierkreis is due in two weeks, however, there are not any promotions yet. Is Konami planning to start promoting the game after releasing it? :?
