I came across this on reddit, and I felt like such a fool because it's true. I bought the Sushi restaurant with donuts I won from one of those golden scratch r's, as I just thought "oh hell, why not", It's not like I paid the real price for them. It never occurred to me, what I was actually buying was an advertisement, a promotion spot, and what's even better, is it's something I'm not even nostalgic about. I never bought the fruit batman because at the time I knew I wouldn't care if I had him or not. If it had been Lyle Langley I wouldn't have batted an eye lid in purchasing him, but I went against my own principles with this one.
If they release more episode tie ins, then don't pay for a promotion, they need you to watch The Simpsons, so stop letting them get around you because it's just wrong. You would never pay to see a promotion anywhere else so don't put up with from a game.
However if you have your reasons for wanting those items and are happy to pay for them, then it's all good because The sushi building is a nice addition but I can't help feeling a little stung.
Yeah and they're the clever ones because we buy it.
