South Park Season 11 DVD to include XBox goodies
It looks like some extra goodies are being included with the South Park Season 11 DVD set. Not only do you get great episodes such as "Cartman Sucks", "More Crap" and the immortal "Imaginationland" story arc (I pray the season DVD includes the full commentary of the "Imaginationland" one), but the DVD also includes a 3-song download for the XBox version of the video game Rock Band.
This marketing move makes sense on a couple of levels. First, Trey Parker and Matt Stone are big gamers so they probably got some cool stuff that other gamers only wish they had access to. They even confess their hobby on one of their DVD mini-commentaries. Second, the season includes the episode "Guitar Queer-o", which uses the predecessor game Guitar Hero as central to the plot.
Comedy Central has done video-game cross promotion with South Park before. After all, the Season 10 episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft" centered around the World of Warcraft online mutli-player game and the DVD set included a 14-day free trial for that. I'm sure this new cross-promotion will be good for both brands.
