ALTERNATIVE MUSINGS – Did GOG.com’s PR Stunt Succeed Or Go Too Far?

By Marty Mulrooney


One of AMO’s favourite digital download sites – GOG.com  – suddenly shut down last Sunday (19th September) without warning, leaving its community members feeling an immense sense of loss and confusion. Many customers were angry, whilst others claimed this news was merely a cleverly worded way of moving out of the site’s beta stage and celebrating GOG.com’s upcoming two year birthday. Thankfully, with new information made available to us via a recent live online press conference (which took place earlier this afternoon), AMO can now reveal that the latter is true and GOG.com’s death was indeed a hoax. But was this a genuinely clever PR stunt or one that went too far?
