    I have a friend over my house for the weekend and we were talking last night about video games. He said that he saw a bunch of stuff for War for Cybertron and thought it looked good, but there are other games he wants more (like Battlefield Bad Company 2 which isn't that great IMO). He has played and thouroughly enjoyed Revenge of the Fallen video game (he was ready to buy it when I told him not to since no one plays it anymore). He is a huge Decepticon fan and even has a few figures so that may be a point of convincing him.

    Any other ideas to help get him on board to buy this? (I already told him about co-op)

    He said there are other games he wants more.

    That's not the same as him saying he's not gonna buy it.

    If anything, he does plan to get it, but not right away.

    If your friend wants it, he'll get it. No need presurring him into anything. If he hates it, he'll only blaim you for it...

    I'm not convinced to buy it yet either (far from convinced).

    Give it time, the game's not out for a while. Perhaps his interest will increase.

    He spent probably a good 2 hours playing ROTF. He said he is kind of looking forward to WfC. Good sign I guess.

    You Want him to Get it , Buy it for him, my best buddy Chaos Incarnate preordered mine for me for my birthday, cuz i couldn't afford it, so if you really want him to play it buy it for him, that simple , Hanging out with a good friend is easily worth 64 dollars, so there you go problem solved:)

    I made a post on a gaming forum/clan site i belong to about this game. I dunno its not appealing to people who dont like transformers and i dont know if thats a good or a bad thing....

    Ill most likely be the only one buying this game out of people that i know which is kind of lame hopefully i can convince my fellow gamers to pick it up.

    You almost have to sell them on everything else before you say o ya its a transformers game.

    People are used to Transformers game being shitfests. That's why they're not interested. It's the same reaction I used to have with Batman games prior to Arkham Asylum.

    Give it time. If it's good, people will come around to it. If it's not, it'll be swept into the bins along with all the other shovelware out there.

    Tell him to buy it or else you will release a pack of trained, rabbid badgers on him. That'll work!

    Pretty much this. I'm far from convinced this game will be any good, at all. Ultimately, pretty graphics in a trailer means shite.

    Though wait till demo and get him to download it. Let him decide for himself.

    If this does indeed have in game co-op I too hope a friend of mine picks this up. Nothing worse thasn having a game designed for multiple people and none of ya buddies are into it as much as you are.
