OmniCorp Viral Site Updated with New ED-209 Photo + EM-208 Suit
"The New Future." Should we believe them this time? RoboCop remake marketing attempt #2. Last year at Comic-Con, Sony unveiled the ED-209 robotic mech from the troubled RoboCop remake on a viral site and it was trashed by fans. Nothing but complaints and criticism. Now they're trying everything all over again, re-launching the very same OmniCorp viral site with new and improved photos of the deadly ED-209 robot and the RoboCop mech suit and a few other things. They look better this time, thank goodness, but enough to convince everyone this won't be terrible? I'm not sure. At least they're trying something interesting here.
Here are the updated 2013 photos from the OmniCorp viral site, which also includes some details about other "products" they're making including a drone and EM-208 tech suit and a motorcycle. Click to visit:
The viral site is now fully launched with details on Products, Projects, Programs & Progress - mainly focused on their biotechnology. "At The Omni Foundation, science is shaped to the needs of people." Keep watching for more updates, as we expect to see marketing ramp up at Comic-Con. Maybe even a trailer soon enough.
