Does Grandpa Really Play PS3?

mediabistro.com: The “Family Day Out” TV spot is the centerpiece of PS3′s Festival of Fun campaign, meant to highlight the versatile gaming options available for the console. The bulk of the commercial takes place at a circus-like setting where kids, parents, and even grandparents, can enjoy the metaphorical pleasures of motion-control video games. (PS3)

"I’m not suggesting that grandparents can’t play video games; I’m sure some do, it just seems strange that a whole family would sit around a couch fully invested in watching Gramps play"

Actually they are all playing with him (also an odd thing I just noticed but none of them actually look related).

Its a good ad for this time of year. I am glad they haven't gone the Christmas route (so many christmas ads) but it would have made more sense to Christmas it up

Yeah... I believe those ads. I bet the whole family is watching in joy as grandpa occupies himself with such innocent, harmonious games as Spec Ops, Far Cry 3 and Max Payne 3.

No motion controls... Grandparents should all play Fallout 3.
