        Well, that is my point Speedway, they are just targeting fans in general... I am not certain that they are really thinking about it...

        The list of products according to the article says such:

        The PC game is the latest extension of the successful global Desperate Housewives franchise, joining a recently announced fragrance launching this fall, a best-selling Season 1 DVD, a board game, a high end line of apparel, a Desperate Housewives online store, mobile ringtones, graphics, personalized application, and an upcoming cookbook.

          FRAGRANCE!? I can understand Raven fragrance for pre-teens, but what early 40s housewife would buy some cheesy perfume with the logo of a television show on it?

            Exactly. This is a very tight demographic that they would be marketing to, One that isn't a huge segment of the game market.

              GameSpot suggested the Desperate Housewives game will target The Sims demographic. That could be a much larger audience then you realize.
