Gamers Wary of MTV’s Venture Into Their World

"The MTV promo is more an attempt to make MTV cooler than making games cooler," said Kyle Orland, the 23-year-old Laurel-based editor of Video Game Media Watch, a blog that assesses how video games are portrayed in the media.
Orland also wonders if the MTV segment "Xbox 360: A Gamer’s Paradise" is not little more than a promotional pitch packaged as a news program. The segment traces several groups’ wild attempts to win a chance to use the new console before today’s official launch.
