Aaron Webber: Say My Name, Say My Name

To thank those who bought multiple versions of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1, Ken Balough (Digital Brand Manager, Sonic 4) and Aaron Webber (Community Manager, Sonic 4) issued a little thank you video. As a nice surprise, they revealed that the public thanking would not be limited to those who bought three or more versions of the game. Instead, they would thank every single person who put their name into True Blue initiative. At 1:35 you’ll see and hear Aaron Webber saying my name as he looks deeply into the camera. No doubt hoping that I heard his thanks. Well Aaron, your thanks has been heard. And in return I say: thank you too!

I know Aaron and Ken got some (okay, a LOT) of flack from the community for asking fans to buy more than one copy, but c’mon guys, do you really blame them for telling people to buy a product produced by a company that they work for? How dare they! On top of that, the whole thing was optional and was effortless to get in on. It only took a forum post. Considering I had already planned to get the iPhone and 360 versions, putting my name in was no trouble at all.

Now I’m kicking myself for not submitting my name as “visit SEGAbits.com”, totally missed a bit of free advertising there.

    Did you like buy all the versions?

  3. Just two: iPhone and 360. They were going to read only the names of those who bought all four, but they changed it to everybody.

    He also said my name too with Ken thanking me in Spanish on 2:25 for buying all four copies of the game and thanks Barry for supporting EPI and hope EPII will be much better.

  5. Very cool Kori! You even got a little biographical info told, nice stuff!
