Grainger games.... what a bunch of tools

http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/gma-g...t-media/087034

Sponsor an event, then mercilessly devalue it by cheap gimmicks, inappropriate promotional material and generally being a douche

Partial commentry of the events:

I can't tell if it's meant to be a genuine stunt or they are that stupid

Re: Grainger games.... what a bunch of tools

Holy **** thats horrific
They should be ashamed of themselves. The damage is done mind, what company is going to invest in them now and how many will boycott the stores after reading/experiencing what a bunch of tools they are?

Re: Grainger games.... what a bunch of tools

the thing is, we have seen this done before in the games industry and i am sure it wont be the last.
When people/companies do this, its just such a waste of an opportunity, so many others out there which wouldn't have wasted the opportunity.

Unfortunately, their key demographic are those that can't read. They issued an apology on their site if you read through the article Wedge linked, theres a link on there. Pathetic.

Only a business originated from the North East could be so ******* retarded to go and blow their one opportunity at becoming a massive player in the gaming business world.
