LOL. Well, I usually hate these subliminal adverts, but I think this one is cheeky too, which isn't always a bad thing. They say that sex sells. We'll see.

I agree!

I thought Sony was all done with this weird creepy advertisement a long time ago. Why revisit this cr@p?

Is this the return of Sony with a Japanese leader this time? If it is, it seems nothing has changed and Sony just reverted right back to pre-Stringer!

Hopefully I'm just assuming too much based on too little.
raytraceme  +   686d ago
Wasn't pre stringer the time when Sony was most prosperous?
nukeitall  +   686d ago
@raytraceme:

Well, that is a little of a loose question, but in general no and in fact on the contrary since Hirai took over the stock has taken a further plunge.

Sony was the most prosperous from a "stock value" point of view in Feb 2000, when the entire tech industry was way overpriced. Since then, it has been a steady decline and that is why SNE brought in Stringer.

I think Stringer did a pretty good job, but the biggest downfall is the culture within Sony. That is something that is almost impossible to change.

'Touch bothsides - Twice the Sensation' X'D

Oh lord that's one way to tell consumers that the vita has dual touch screens!

This reminds of that scene in HIMYM where Robin gets 2 boobs XD Hahahaha!
Fishy Fingers  +   686d ago
Another marketing home run by Sony.
TenkoTAiLS  +   686d ago
Pretty sure the movie "Paul" explained that four boobs was overkill and just plain sick. Three is the sweet spot, "Total Recall" knew it, apparently Sony doesn't :P

Perverted sony ad. Ewww. A girl with 4 boobs jst like in animehentai. Sick. Nd they expect parents to endorse this, Hell No
GraveLord  +   686d ago
No, they don't expect parents to endorse anything. WTF are you on?
OmniSlashPT  +   686d ago
I thought after those Michael kind of ads that Sony finally learned how to do ads...but this one just reminds me of the killer baby from the PS3 launch xD
Xx-ADITYA-xX  +   686d ago
Front + Back touch pad.
Jamaicangmr  +   686d ago
Lol! Thats pretty funny because we all get the message and it's true.
g-nome  +   686d ago
It is better than a woman with 4 boobs.
ozzywazzy  +   686d ago
PR must be a fan of How I Met Your Mother. Barney mentions a four boob invention.
mrbojingles  +   686d ago
Not only a terrible ad, but also very sexist and offensive to women.

Seriously, how does Sony keep coming up with terrible, out of touch ads for their products? It's not like it's a new thing. Everyone does from time to time, but they do it a lot
Dlacy13g  +   686d ago
to be fair...this ad seems to be very much about being "in touch". ;-)
MacDonagh  +   686d ago
Wow. I've seen some bad advertisements but this is really pathetic. How will that influence ANYONE to go out and buy a Vita?

Sony's marketing division should be utterly ashamed of itself.
Sp1d3ynut  +   686d ago
Well, at least she's not naked, and no goats were harmed....which is progress, where Sony marketing is concerned. :o
Dlacy13g  +   686d ago
So its a play on touching it front and back... but using a woman to demonstrate that point? **face palm** Sony Marketing you never cease to amaze me.
XabiDaChosenOne  +   686d ago
This is some pretty sh***y marketing. Why would Sony's advertising team do this? Just keep it straight forward and advertise the features. This is just...weird, and just a tiny bit sexist.
@ginsunuva Wow, didn't realize that it was a french advert, the ad makes sense now lol.

It's French dude. Calm down, it's okay there.
tiffac008  +   686d ago
I know they want to be creative but sticking to the basics would do the trick, like advertising the games you can play on the Vita for instance.
mochachino  +   686d ago
So Vita is twice as much for what is needed for handheld gaming and consequently less attractive? Yep.
SandWitch  +   686d ago
LOL

There was a time when SCE in Poland thought about creating their own PS VITA commercial. Thank God that it wasn't aired (see "Related video"). For you people which don't understand the gibberish called polish language:
- What do you love in her the most?
- That i can touch it with both hands.
- That i can use the camera...from front...from back
- The curves
- That i can do it with her everywhere.
- I can talk and hear her for hours.
- She let's me befriend others.
- She gives me many thrills. Everyday something new.
- Sometimes she gives me presents.
- It doesn't matter how much time I've got on hands. She's always ready.
- on the couch
- on metro train (funny story - theres only one metro line in Poland)
- on the bus stop
- in toilet
- in the dressing-room
- Why do \ what for I love her? For giving us new life.

The whole commercial is showed as if the topic is a woman not a handheld and it's very suggestive. Thankfully it wasn't aired.

Other failed IMHO product placement was with Natalia Siwiec (polish celebrity) http://www.examiner.com/art...

I wish that they will stop sexually harrasing ps vita and show it for what's it worth.

BTW: I'm not sorry for the long post

They have this new awesome AC3: Liberations/ PS Vita commercial now.

It aired for me last nite on Comedy Central. I must say just from the Ad I wanted to buy a Vita and that game.

Although I already own both but I just thought it was a great commercial.

and here everyone says Sony doesn't advertise and here I have been saying it's only been a year since the Vita has been out give it time.
