The Story Behind GameStop’s Customized QR Code
Earlier this week, GameStop has started placing its customized QR code on its Facebook page. The QR code takes scanners to this video:
Why the video? Aside from being a fun watch, there is a deeper reason why GameStop wants you to see the video. To celebrate the pre-order of Gears of War 3, Gamestop partnered with Epic Meal Time and FPS Russia to create — and DESTROY — an edible “meat shield.” As all gamers know, this is a prominent fixture in the Gear of War series. GameStop’s Eric Fransen adds, “The QR code points you to the YouTube video chronicling this event, featuring gameplay footage and plenty of bacon.”
The QR code pays tribute to the game Gears of War 3, and looking at the pre-order page at http://www.gamestop.com/collection/gears-of-war-3, you would see elements of the page embedded in the QR code. In fact, instead of using the boxes in the normal QR codes, GameStop’s QR codes used gears. Graphic elements and the color scheme also followed the design of this page.
GameStop teamed up with CustomQRCodes.com to produce the eye-catching customized Gears of War 3-inspired QR code you see here. Get your own customized QR codes to match your marketing designs and branding now!
