Vanquish E-smokes!

At a recent event Sega were giving out one of the coolest promotional items I’ve seen in a while; E-Cigarettes!

If you aren’t clued in on E-Cigarettes yet let me give you a little rundown on what these things are. Basically E-Cigs are an electronic substitute for cigarettes in which you inhale a vaporized form of nicotine with out the tobacco often used by people trying to quit.

A friend of mine uses these, when you smoke them the end glows neon blue instead of red… It looks pretty cool honestly!

These Vanquish branded ones come in a really cool cigarette case shaped box that plugs into your wall so you can recharge them.  Badass.

Why? You may ask. Well Sam, the hero of Vanquish is a hefty smoker and apparently tossing your ciggy awake can act as a decoy in the game drawing your enemies fire away from you.

  1. Thevonly thing that looks more stupid than real cigarettes.

    Even though I smoke myself, I think anything that promotes people to smoke is bad. To be honest I don't find this to be a cool promotional item but a very bad one.

    It may come of a bit too serious and I know theyre not the real deal(real cigs) but this is just how I think about it.

  3. From what I understand, aren't these meant to slowly ease smokers off of cigarettes? So they aren't totally evil.

    Also, I'd love it if Vanquish is actually the name of the cigarette brand that Sam smokes.

    This had to be a Japanese promotional item… no way they would do it in the west… I think?

    I don't smoke, never have… and these are still badass promotional items.

    As barry said these are used by smokers looking to quit or find a slighty more healthy option.

    I can picture Sonic on a carton of cigs, lighting one up like Camel Joe used too.
