    I have not seen any advertisements in the weekly Target, Walmart, Best Buy, etc. for Vision, the album, or the game. Normally, each of these lists what will be released on Tuesday of the current week. Last week, there was nothing about Vision or the game. I wouldn't expect to see the album yet, but I would think Sony would have notified them of the game and DVD collection.
    HELLO! SONY? ARE YOU THERE? Wake up! Not everyone watches Oprah!

    How about comparing the promotion of this album to other current releases? In the US, I hardly see any TV ad for any other album release. Actually, I don't remember when was the last time I saw an ad for an album. Promotions rely heavily on the artist's show appearance, the artist's tweets and facebook updates. I guess that is part of the reason why Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber are so popular. Both of them have strong young fanbase.

    Don't get me wrong. MJ has a large fanbase as well. I guess Sony needs to raise the general public's awareness of this album. The Oprah show, no matter how I feel about her, is a good promo.

    Are you serious? Over here, there are so, so SO many TV ads for albums; especially now with the lead up to Christmas. Every big artist has a TV commercial for their album, its still one of the biggest ways to advertise it.

    I finally saw The Experience advert of TV yesterday, it was on during X Factor, so they couldn't have got a better time to show it...

    I wish that was the case over here.....In Canada, at least, it's not usual to see commercials on TV for albums...I haven't seen that in YEARS...I don't even remember seeing commercials for the HIStory album back in the day...

    I hunted for 'Vision' in my local HMV and after walking around the store 3 times eventually found it at the back of the store.

    They hadn't put it at the front of the store near all the other releases, which is what I would have expected.

    It's still not stocked at any of the 3 supermarkets near me.

    One new music DVD I have seen in pride of place at all these places is the Cliff Richard one.

    Why are shops not displaying or promoting the new MJ product but are happy to push the CR product??

    I finally saw the Wii ad tonight on Channel 4 (UK). Have heard HMH once on German radio, but then I hardly ever listen to the radio, so don't know how often they actually play it. But that's it so far...

    The game has had a lot of promotion in the UK, the album has a lot of posters up in the Tube which obv gains maximum exposure. TV ads will follow but Vision had relativly nothing. I went into HMV and it was at the back of the store.

    Most albums don't get TV ads until the days leading upto to it's release. For example the new BEP album has been advertised tonight as 'release tomorrow'.

    At my local HMV the first thing you see when you walk in is a poster promoting "The Experience" and copies available. Right off to to the left, at the front of the store, 2nd shelf down under new releases, at the desirable eye level was copies of "Vision". So both right out there for all to see and all to easily pick up for Christmas, so I was glad about that.

    I have not seen any commercials for Vision, or the Album, but numerous ones for the game. I watched a show last night and throughout the hour, at every commerical break, was a commercial promoting the game. And friends have commented that they have all seen numerous commericals regarding "The Experience". Sadly though nothing re "Vision" or "Michael".

    I really hope things pick up and word gets out more about the album, especially because unfortunately many don't know anything about the new album. Please Oprah be positive is my hope. As much as I have lost all respect for her; a big push, and some postitivity for a change, would go a long way for promotion.
