The interview of Hasbro's Vice President for Marketing included a statement which is contrary to the actual performance of the top. Weird. Confused

just proves how much hasbro knows about beyblade

The marketing division VP is not going to be one of the playtesters anyway...

That may be true, but you'd think he'd at least know some physics...

Congratulations on being mentioned there! I found the article and came straight here to see what everyone thought of it. Very nice publicity, and great that they featured the video!

as a news report it was good, same with the publicity for the hobby, but as far as the information on it, Derryl DePriest, Hasbro's OWN VP of marketing muffed up the Attack and Stamina types.... I applaud Hasbro on being the North American "rep.s" -if you will- of the hobby, but all in all Hasbro makes some derpy moves here and there....

We always knew Hasbro workers are morons when it comes to beyblade

This is truly awesome. It's cool to see the WBO gain so much publicity! After all, we are one of the top 30 sites to appear, from when I last checked, along with the BeyChannel videos.

This can make beyblade even bigger then it already is! Our beyblades really appreciate it!

Sorry, but as someone who works in marketing at a toy company, he absolutely should know what he is talking about if he is going to talk about it. He doesn't need to be an "Advanced Blader" but this is one of the most basic ideas of the game.

I must say, this is quite impressive.

It produces news and cultural programming across a network of almost 1000 independent radio stations covering most "major" markets here in the US, and is similar to the CBC in Canada (NPR also carries Fresh Air), and the BBC in the UK (NPR also carries the BBC world service).

WAMU is the local affiliate here in the Washington DC metro area, and broadcasts on 88.5 FM.

Correct. National Public Radio is far and away the most prestigious and respected broadcast news voice in the United States. Congratulations on the story!

Amazing news.

That being said, these types of articles are supposed to appeal to parents who actually listen to the radio, or to children who just want to play with a new toy. They really couldn't care less if the top jumped or not, so pointing out technical flaws in the writing doesn't matter all that much.

And what's all this stereotypical garbage about "For boys."

With regards to Garcia winning with a BBP, I believe 4D isn't out in the US yet so why is it they even allowed her to play with imported toys? Correct me if I'm wrong, but this seems like the mentality they would use in Hasbro tournaments.
