ECA Announces Gamer Video Contest For YouTube Presidential Debates

August 6, 2007 -
ECA to Award T-shirts to All Who Participate!

The Entertainment Consumers Association is excited about the 2008 presidential election campaign as well as concerned about how the candidates view issues pertaining to games and gamers. 

The ECA also notes the upcoming CNN/YouTube Republican debate, which will air on September 17th.

In order to encourage true grassroots gamer activism, the ECA will be awarding a T-shirt to anyone who uploads a video question pertaining to game consumer rights to the GOP candidates for the YouTube presidential debate. Standard YouTube debate rules apply.

One T-shirt will be mailed to each individual who successfully uploads a video question. Mention of the ECA is not required, but is appreciated. A link to your video along with your contact information (name, address, phone and email) should be sent to info@theECA.com. Contest is open to ECA members as well as non-members.

You can also expect to see your video published here on GamePolitics as well as on the ECA's Facebook and MySpace pages

I am going to be making one from GamingAngels.com, and I have encouraged everyone in the forums to make one! Great work Gamepolitics.com and ECA!

I am working on mine as we speak.

[...] The Entertainment Consumers Association’s (ECA) is encouraging people to add videos with a contest to get you, dear reader, to submit video questions “pertaining to game consumer rights” for the upcoming CNN / YouTube Republican debate set to air on September 17. . We think it’s a great idea. [...]

GP: I made a video pertaining to Romney's Ocean of Filth videos. I asked why he feels Americans should back censorship of that sort.

Would that count? It doesn't address game consumers directly, but it addresses government crackdowns.

I had to go and open my mouth...*sigh*

Hey, I already put one up. Do I still get a Tee?

youtube has a crapload of vids, so the chances of my embaresment are less.

if it's on gp, then other people will deffinatly see it.





i've got issues. :)

LOL, Billy. I hear ya. Well, I think that spreading the word via GP, MySpace and FaceBook is part of the deal, so if that is a turnoff for you, perhaps best to re-think the idea.

I should tell this to my friends over on SecondLife. Some of these people are brilliant and could probably come up with a very unique way to approach this.

Billy, If the video is up on YouTube, what's the difference?

what if i don't want it to appear on gp or the eca myface?

im on the work, btw does it apply to non-americans too ?

Cool idea and one I’d like to participate in but alas, I have no video capture equipment. It’s probably for the best though. Due to my size and voice I tend to come off as really intimidating to lot of people.

Guess I’ll stick with letter writing.

Goth_SkunkDespite not being a fan of fighting games I had to check out that R Mika trailer. Loved it. Still won't buy the game though, on account of Isuckatstreetfighteritis.08/29/2015 - 2:42am
MechaCrashI use a Dynex DX-840 headset, but it's discontinued. :( I wanted a mono headset so I could keep the other ear free for my speakers, but it has the bonus of being very light and comfortable, so you don't notice it.08/29/2015 - 12:41am

Big PermThanks, but yeah. Not sure I wanna drop that kind of cash :P I don't even mind the sound quality of my krakens, it just hurts to wear em after a couple hours.08/28/2015 - 3:25pm
Sora-Chan@Big Perm: I'm a bit of a fan of the Omega Recon3D headset from SoundBlaster. Though it is a bit expensive.08/28/2015 - 2:36pm
Big PermI actually need to look into a new headset. I have those green razer krakens and I would not suggest them. Though maybe they're better for people without glasses08/28/2015 - 11:32am
