LOL! Tron buddy, I do think you have a point about the box cover. I was just out of college when I saw Phalanx, and I thought it was quirky and goofy. But I don't how well it would fly with young kids at the time, who were probably thinking "What the heck is this?"
It was an interesting marketing choice, that's for sure. My son and I were just talking about commercials the other day, and I told him that the greatest commercial in the world isn't any good if you can't remember the product. That's why I was such a big fan of the "Got milk?" campaign. The marketing guys were brainstorming and came to the conclusion that the only time people gave a darn about milk was when they ran out of it, hence the commercials.
And it does bring up how important marketing can be to a game or console.
