Very strange

weird lol
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  +   1158d ago
they're so hot right now.
crxss  +   1158d ago
LOL that was actually awesome. very unexpected and will get people talking, nice one whoever made this ad.
SolidStoner  +   1158d 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  +   1159d 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  +   1158d ago
the japanese love their horror.. but yeah, it's for re6
zerocrossing  +   1158d 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.

Why does everything Japan do have to be so weird?
Fujitsu  +   1159d ago
How is this supposed to sell systems?
Treezy504  +   1159d 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

Thank you someone who gets it as
SilentNegotiator  +   1158d 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  +   1158d 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.

This is ?????????????????? All over it and then some

Only in japan

I did reply to the article, or are you taking to you
Bimkoblerutso  +   1159d ago
Sony better include a free pair of pants with every system they sell if they're going that route.
phello  +   1159d 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  +   1159d 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.

thethirstywhiskey  +   1159d ago
That scared the crap out of me
r21  +   1159d ago
It was going perfect as an ad then zombie hand :I
Da hell, Sony, what da hell.
MakiManPR  +   1159d 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  +   1159d 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  +   1159d ago
-_- Doesn't mean he can't show someone who hasn't seen it...and record their reactions O_O
Skate-AK  +   1158d ago
Nope actually I didn't watch it cause I was on an itouch. I decided to save it for later.
TongkatAli  +   1159d ago
It makes me think if I open the hatch I will die Oo

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  +   1158d ago
japans the maine focus in the handheld market, thats where they sell
ConstipatedGorilla  +   1159d ago
Lol. How would that convince anyone to buy the system? That's completely random.
Dlacy13g  +   1159d 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  +   1158d ago
Their american marketing team is great, but this one just came out of the blue..
ado908  +   1159d ago
Lol what if little children wanted a PS3 and then they see this? They most likely want to buy one
NoFanboyRequired  +   1159d ago
Not going to lie, but that was the worst advertisement ever.. i hope they do better in other countries :/
wanderson75  +   1159d ago
Kinda seems like they're doing a take on Ringu, not a zombie thing.
extermin8or  +   1158d 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
deletingthis34675334  +   1158d ago
And Sony thought this was a good idea?
Braid  +   1158d 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?

Probably DLC.
kagon01  +   1158d ago
That's a nasty bundle...(Biohazard 6)
Lvl_up_gamer  +   1158d ago
Better rehire those PR guys Sony.
JadedXGamer  +   1158d ago
Sony. Arguably the worst company in history when it comes to advertising.
TemplarDante  +   1158d ago
prototypeknuckles  +   1158d 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  +   1158d ago
Its good to be different and havent sony always knew it? sony,typical japan.
Dogswithguns  +   1158d ago
That was awesome!!!.. well, it's Halloween season.
LOL_WUT  +   1158d ago
That would definitely make people wan't to buy a PS3...
tiffac008  +   1158d 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.
