  • Regarding the relationship between the press and game company's PR departments, I want to bring up a comparison I face daily at work:

    I work for a car manufacturer and of course newly released cars are sent to the biggest magazines and websites so as to get coverage of it out there. Similar to video game sites, over the long run no magazine could possibly afford to buy all the cars they want to test. And of course there is already much contact at trade shows etc so that people know what to expect in the coming months/years.

    And when buying a car the risk, effort and involvement is even much higher than with video games so you really want to be able to rely on an outlet's verdict. That's why in both industries their integrity is so holy to them. If word gets out that product reviews are colored/tainted that particular outlet will go down very quickly.

    That leads me to the question: Did GameSpot take any actions after the episode with the soon-to-be GiantBomb guys? Was the manager that asked for a better review fired? How did they handle that in order not to harm their reputation in the long run?
