This time on Did You Know Gaming extra, we take a look at several failed marketing stunts including how EA staged fake backlash over Dante’s Inferno, how Ubisoft’s advertisers were nearly harmed by law enforcers, and how THQ faced legal fees after dumping balloons in San Francisco. Then we look at Sega’s Daytona USA to find an interesting Easter egg.
