The world of online marketing has taken another surreal turn today, as Nintendo has created a vast array of websites to promote the upcoming Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. The addresses www.channel51.org and www.orbislabs.com had already been set up as fake websites, designed in a similar manner to Halo 2?s www.ilovebees.com ; but seemingly, those cunning marketing folk have decided that what had been done so far wasn?t sufficiently obvious in its Halo 2 poking ways.
So, in case there was any doubt, the following websites have all been snapped up to carry Metroid Prime 2 advertising. They are all identical, featuring an image of Samus, and the faux-mistranslated strap-line ?ALL YOUR BEES ARE BELONG TO US. NEVER SEND A MAN TO DO A WOMAN?S JOB.? But, if you don?t believe us, feel free to check each and every one out for youself... and then, for the punchline, have a gander at www.metroidprime2.com and realise there's nothing there. It's a strange world.
