Orange/Blue Contrast, a popular theme

It's a small article, but it's interesting non-the-less. My brother showed me this earlier, and I can't believe I'd never noticed it before.

If you're not in the mood for the article, here's the evidence they give. Still makes the same point.

Pre-Order bonuses

Even though I'm a Game Art student - and wanting to get into the Game industry - I still look at some of the things that said industry does and think, why?

I've been thinking about bonus content recently, mainly the bonuses you get for pre-ordering a game. I'm indecisive about where I stand on this stuff, because I feel it's both good and bad at the same time.

For example, pre-order Red Faction: Armaggedon and you get a free copy of Red Faction: Battlegrounds and $10 a future THQ game. Are they that desperate to get people to pre-order Red Faction that they're ready to hand out discounts? Seems a little drastic to me.

It probably worked, I haven't checked. But I can't shake the feeling that all this is rather silly. Especially when there are different pre-order bonuses for different retailers. I just see it like they're trying to lure in customers by jingling shiny objects in the window. Well, as long as their handing out free stuff, we're fine with being led around.
