Billboard promotion in Europe…

This has been a topic of discussion for quite a while….

Game Daily says..

“When the first full trailer for Resident Evil 5 released in 2007, it was immediately criticized for its content. The use of an ethnically white American firing upon ethnically black Africans drew fire from people both inside and out of the video gaming realm. Newsweek editor N’Gai Croal thought the trailer walked a precarious line and said, “This imagery has a history.”

What are your thoughts on RE5 Playstation Game? Just fun and games or is there more to it??!?
