Gamers.jpgTo promote its "WASD" gaming brand in China, HP China is targeting hardcore gamers with a campaign in gaming magazines and conventions under the enigmatic platform "Gamers Know."

The ad created by FF Shanghai features the hand of gamer with a red blister, known among the die-hard gamers as "The Mark of a True Gamer" -  a nod to those who have spent countless hours playing their favourite games.

Using deep insights such as this, HP is demonstrating a profound knowledge of the gaming culture to appeal to gamers in preparation for the release of a series of ultra powerful computers over the next few months.
