Don't Diss a Gamer

I was tuned onto this at work by a couple co-workers who are avid gamers. It is an email exchange by a Gamer (Dave) who pre-ordered the N-Control Avenger Controller. It is made for the X-Box or PS3 (which I have neither of).

Why am I mentioning this - well - it has made world news - in a very, very bad way. It is a story of Ocean Marketing's PR guru Paul Christoforo with his 'not-so-nice' responses to Gamer Dave just wanting to know where their pre-order is for this cool controller. It is a customer service and PR nightmare. It is a good lesson on knowing who you are talking to and the POWER of the INTERNET.

To quote Gabe from Penny Arcade:

" Trust me when I tell you that this is one wild ride. I’m serious, Mr. Toad would look at this ride and just give a slow clap while shaking his head."

I am not going to go into details as it is just easier to check the links on the story below.

To catch this in full NSFW email trail, you need to check out Penny Arcade. For how this all wraps up however, check out Kotaku for the conclusion.

This even made new over at Forbes (yep, that Forbes).

  1. @Faery Chaos ~ It is sad to see such a great product get such bad press.
