Also kind of cool.
but mostly weird and creepy.

Hang on does the little kid say something about Biohazard? maybe that's the reason there's a zombie in it =/

Biohazard = Resident Evil 6. It's a quick advert relying on RE 6 as a selling point.
darthv72  +   703d ago
Zombies...
they're so hot right now.
crxss  +   703d ago
LOL that was actually awesome. very unexpected and will get people talking, nice one whoever made this ad.
Tvensky  +   703d ago
how about this one! :D

what it means to Japanese people? Slap in a face? Pie in a face if you buy it? :D
morkendo23  +   704d ago

LMAO, I think its cool they are using resident evil(only game I could think of with zombies other than walking dead) as part of the advertisement..
dale_denton  +   703d ago
the japanese love their horror.. but yeah, it's for re6
zerocrossing  +   703d ago
Well, it's only strange if you don't know Japanese.

It's just a PS3 slim add that's also promoting Biohazard 6 aka Resident evil 6, I can kinda see ypurs and other peoples confusion but, the childs voice does say "Biohazard 6" most people must know that's the original Japanese Title before it got altered to "Resident evil" for us westerners right?.

Trust the Internet to blow things way out of proportion.
t0mmyb0y  +   703d ago
Why does everything Japan do have to be so weird?
Fujitsu  +   704d ago
How is this supposed to sell systems?
Treezy504  +   704d ago | Funny
Well look at it like this. Sony is subliminally telling you the consumer that a zombie apocalypse can only be contained by purchasing a new PlayStation 3 Super Slim. You alone will control the hatch that keeps the zombies at bay while at the same time enjoying high definition console gaming :D
Xwow2008  +   704d ago
lol bubble+
lilbrat23  +   704d ago
Thank you someone who gets it as well..lol
SilentNegotiator  +   703d ago
It tells about the features.

Frankly, it's good form to do something to get people talking, and that one part does that....look at us. We're talking about it. And it's in the hottest stories section.
justpassinggas  +   703d ago
If you knew Japanese or even knew what RE is called in Japan (Biohazard), you'd realize that this is actually quite a clever ad. It is advertising PS3 and RE6 together.
RivetCityGhoul  +   704d ago
LOL
claud3  +   704d ago
This is ?????????????????? All over it and then some

Only in japan
Muffins1223  +   704d ago
HEY COSPLAY GUY....WHY U NO REPLY?
claud3  +   704d ago
I did reply to the article, or are you taking to you
Bimkoblerutso  +   704d ago
Sony better include a free pair of pants with every system they sell if they're going that route.
phello  +   704d ago
Is it not obvious it is for Bio Hazard 6(resident evil 6) box set. Nearly sure the voice even says bio hazard
kudakadere  +   704d ago
Hahaha i Laughed so because i watched it on Mute , however seriously wtf do some people actually get convinced to buy the console because they think that there might be a real Zombie inside.

You serious?
thethirstywhiskey  +   704d ago
That scared the crap out of me
r21  +   704d ago
It was going perfect as an ad then zombie hand :I
Da hell, Sony, what da hell.
MakiManPR  +   704d ago
The video has a 3D option. Wonder what'll happen to someone that watch it on 1080p in a TV with 3D enable.
Skate-AK  +   704d ago
I'm getting a 47" LED 3D TV on October 4th so I'll try it.

Pointless cuz you already saw it. And know what'll happen.
ZoyosJD  +   704d ago
-_- Doesn't mean he can't show someone who hasn't seen it...and record their reactions O_O
Skate-AK  +   703d ago
Nope actually I didn't watch it cause I was on an itouch. I decided to save it for later.
TongkatAli  +   704d ago
It makes me think if I open the hatch I will die Oo
ApolloTheBoss  +   704d ago
Ummm...
telekeneticmantis  +   704d ago
Hey Sony
how about some full, uncommon, exclusive games for Vita, that's not a port of a Japanese game. There's barely any NA/EU support, and some games that take advantage of the back touchscreen, I can think of some creatvie games that take advantage of it, why can't you?
Oh_Yeah  +   703d ago
japans the maine focus in the handheld market, thats where they sell
ConstipatedGorilla  +   704d ago
Lol. How would that convince anyone to buy the system? That's completely random.
Dlacy13g  +   704d ago
LOL... Good Lord, Sony you seriously need to fire your marketing team and/or adverstising agency and get someone who can make consistent good commercials. You were on the right track with Kevin Butler ...but this... ugghh. Who knows maybe that kind of crap goes down well in Japan?
aviator189  +   703d ago
Their american marketing team is great, but this one just came out of the blue..
ado908  +   704d ago
Lol what if little children wanted a PS3 and then they see this? They most likely want to buy one
NoFanboyRequired  +   704d ago
Not going to lie, but that was the worst advertisement ever.. i hope they do better in other countries :/
wanderson75  +   704d ago
Kinda seems like they're doing a take on Ringu, not a zombie thing.
extermin8or  +   703d ago
lol back to the scary adverts then? are we going to have the terrifying baby doll return god that used to freak me out
SegaKnuckles86  +   703d ago
And Sony thought this was a good idea?
Braid  +   703d ago
Nice ad you've got there, Sony.

One question though, is the zombie included in the console, or do we have to buy it seperately?

vyke3  +   703d ago
Probably DLC.
kagon01  +   703d ago
That's a nasty bundle...(Biohazard 6)
Lvl_up_gamer  +   703d ago
Better rehire those PR guys Sony.
JadedXGamer  +   703d ago
Sony. Arguably the worst company in history when it comes to advertising.
TemplarDante  +   703d ago
Creepy...
prototypeknuckles  +   703d ago
LMFAO, at first i was like WTF was that, then i just couldnt help but laugh, take in mind its a JAPANESE ADVERTISEMENT so weird works over there
Goodfella78  +   703d ago
Its good to be different and havent sony always knew it?...lol...Typical sony,typical japan.
Dogswithguns  +   703d ago
That was awesome!!!.. well, it's Halloween season.
LOL_WUT  +   703d ago
That would definitely make people wan't to buy a PS3...
tiffac008  +   703d ago
You know that ad could have been better, if it was a tie-in ad for RE6 or any horror games that involves zombies that is about to get released for the PS3. That would give the commercial a lot of sense.
