I agree with Indinera. Also, if you're local, you WILL have "connections" with the press. I could get on all game review magazine in Italy but would be pointless as wouldn't be worth the time spent That said, having spoken privately with many indies, I'm pleased to see that press review, as Nexic says, doesn't really give you such a big boost on sales. Apparently, there are still gamers that can decide for themselves what they want to play!! edit: in case of PC development, press coverage can make much easier to get on Steam though. So we can say that, in a certain way, getting press coverage can turn "ok" revenues, into "insanely high" revenues.
