Midway Claims Halo 3 Popularity Will Help Sell BlackSite
In a recent interview with MCV, a UK publication, a representative from Midway claimed that Halo 3′s popularity would actually help them sell their own sci-fi FPS, BlackSite: Area 51:
“BlackSite will absolutely benefit from the popularity of Halo, and stands a fair chance of hitting number one,” Aidan Minter, European brand manager for the company told MCV.
Don’t really see how Halo 3 would help boost the popularity of a similarly styled FPS being released just a month later; particularly when your core audience will probably be still playing Halo 3 online. And as for hitting number one: number one what? FPS whose title starts with a “B”? Sorry, man, but BioShock’s been out awhile now.
