I know it's quite last minute, but I have picked to do the dance game for the exam tomorrow. I have one marketing campaign I'm going to talk about which is Disney Infinity and was wondering if anyone could help me with another marketing campaign I could talk about? Thanks

try Planetside2, you can talk about how it has a fragmented audience which allows the game to have a wider like fan base or whatever! ermm, then link it to dyers utopian solution theory- gamers can escape normality by joining a faction of their choice and fight for teritory. The game is a free online game - USP, makes people more interested! etc. so yeh, i've also chosen to talk about Just Dance 4 as well as i can link it to the dance game we've been given! http://sarasmediablog.blogspot.co.uk/
^^ this is pretty useful for planetside 2
- hope this helped

The new Just Dance game was shown off at the Ubisoft press conference at E3 last night. There's plenty of stuff on YouTube. I'm probably going to base my brief on that. There was a similar game called Dance Central at the Microsoft conference but I don't know how much of that they showed.

I know this is last minute, but can someone explain what I need to know for tomorrow's exam? I've picked the dance game, done research etc but is there anything specific?

Teacher didn't do much.

you should know what your USP is (Unique Selling Point) for example, if you do so many dances you can unlock something special. Also, im not sure if youll be asked about it but think up some gameplay, it might help you think deeper into advertising or how you will appeal to target audience. You will probably be asked to create something such as a website or a storyboard for one of your adverts so be sure to think of something up, if you get stuck on this look at some game websites such as Just Dance or Dance Central to get an idea how they've presented themselves and watch one of their adverts if needs be. I found this looking around on the internet which may help you, but you have to make an account which is worth it if you need it because it has helped me very well (http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resour...-exam-6431456/). I hope this helps

I believe we have to, all the questions are more likely to be linked with the campaign that youre going to do if that makes sense haha. If you go on the AQA website you can find some past papers and examples of A* responses etc. to explain to you how to answer things if you need it. My teacher has literally taught us nothing and weve had to do it all our selves basically and ive just googled things that i need.
