New PS3/XBOX360 Game Features Go Media

Turquoise Flag-Tip

Baja: Edge of Control - Go Media is a sponsor! There’s a new game coming out this month called Baja: Edge of Control. They’re calling it the Gran Turismo of off-road racing. We were asked to be a sponsor probably over a year ago, and I had totally forgotten about it until I was emailed yesterday about it.

I’m not exactly sure how Go Media is represented in the game, since I haven’t played it. If I remember correctly, I think we were asked if players could decorate their vehicles with artwork from our vector packs. But then again, I could be totally wrong. I know there is a “sponsorship” aspect to the game where big name sponsors like Red Bull offer you cash to race with their logos on your truck. So Go Media could very well be one of those sponsors. So you might be able to plaster a big Go Media logo on the hood of your truck. How cool is that? You can go to their website and check the Partners page and you’ll see our logo in the middle of a ton of other sponsor logos. We’re stoked to be included in the game! This is a first for us. I’m going to have to go out and get myself a copy.

Anyway, you can pre-order the game at bajagame.com. Check out the videos and such:

    So…basically, you said “sure, we’d like to sponsor the game”, then you haven’t heard from them for a year, and now you have to guess what they did with it?

    *awesome! ;)

    Yeah I think Bill was the main person they contacted about the sponsorship details and contract and all that. I was just told about it. So my memory escapes me. I’ll just have to play the game to see what it’s like.

    Congrats man! Not too long ago some work of mine was featured in that new movie “Swing Vote” with Kevin Costner. I was pretty excited about that although I haven’t actually seen the movie yet. Can’t wait for it to come out on dvd. You guys are lucky that it’s a video game and you don’t have to wait to do a screen capture.

    Awesome man!
    I think you should get a free copy of the game though!

  • ChequeredManiac

    That is so sweet. But you really should ask for a copy, I’m sure they’d give you one, being a sponsor and all :P

    That is excellent. I don’t own any video game systems, so since I can’t go buy the game, make sure you do a post that shows how Go Media is incorporated in the game! Include pics!!

    I’d be happy to race with a Go Media logo.

    I hope the game is as good as they set out to make it! THQ’s games have a tendency to not quite be as good as they seem, but I’d love to see the developers of this game break that spell! :D

    Haha. It seems they’ve made a good sponsor choice, seeing as I might buy this game just to see GoMedia’s involvement!

    The PS3 is still pretty steep in price I can see, but I found a nice site that offers free ps3 to select places in the US.

    I recommend you check out to see if your in the right state. There’s also a lot of other electronics like Macbooks and iPhones which are being given in some states.
