Kratos swore an oath in blood to the gods, and ended up losing everything he ever loved.
Oh yeah! Bring it on!
Oh man.. Super Bowl? Sony are going all out with this!
With a commercial that doesn't sell the game, just the game name. I consider it poor advertising on their part.
Yeah I'm sorry, I'm the biggest God Of War fan, but what the hell was that... Oh, oh... ok just noticed it said Teaser...! so the real commercial the full version hopefully will show game-play and be amazing.. Can't wait to check it out.. I hope it's good because the game looks like it's going to be good... -So it would be nice if they could do a really good commercial for it. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
If this is the actual commercial, it's extremely boring and forgettable. Especially during the Super Bowl when every other commercial will be over the top, viral, funny, etc. Being a teaser though, there's only about 15-20 seconds of actual commerical there, hopefully the other 10-15 seconds helps sell the game and also mentions something about it being on PS3 at the end. Ads are about $3.5 million per 30 seconds for this year's Super Bowl btw, which is probably about 100,000 GoW: Ascensions sold at full retail $60 after costs. I don't think this teaser as is sells more than 1/5th of that at best.
Sony's hasn't done anything like this for a while. This by far one of their biggest Sony campaigns as of late. It is Gow after all one of the biggest Sony games of all time. I expect nothing less when it comes to exposure. Sony realizes you have to spend money to make money and what a way to do it around a time where people actually LIKE commercials lol. It's genius.
The ashes of his slain family whome he killed, was imbedded into his skin turning him a pale white and he became known as the Ghost of Sparta. This looks to be a very emotional game. As the GOW series grew, Kratos had become so overly consumed by rage that he almost forgot where he came from or who he was. I am going to enjoy seeing all this from the beginning. Plus that trailer.....the elephant...that 300 foot snake, I mean this game is going to be the best looking console game this generation.
***"With a commercial that doesn't sell the game, just the game name. I consider it poor advertising on their part."*** Exactly, they need to show actual gameplay.
Why are they not doing this with the vita for commercial?
I don't get why they spent so much money but show no game play or any sort of in game movie. You show the name "God of War", people who know the name are already gonna buy it, and will most likely find out about the release date somewhere else. Show game play or better yet show the in game movies that will wow the people who doesn't know the name in the first place and get their interest to buy the game. Wish Sony advertisement team would do a better job because they've got a lot of great games/exclusives that people should know about.
Can't wait to see the full ad. By the way, everyone who is complaining, it is a freakin TEASER! If you can't make sense out of the thing, read up! I get a very Russell-Crowe-Gladiator-type vibe watching this teaser(which is a good thing!).
Commercial ******TEASER****** I didn't realize that an Einstein convention was visiting N4G. Come on now, people.
Compared to MS. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Sony spend their money on Making games. Not advertising unfortunately. i'd honestly prefer them to split it on Advertising, they need to get more revenue, in the future it will lead to good for both the gamers and Sony as a business. They could make more games and advertise them all if they got more assets.
That commercial sucks. How much will that cost to air?
Now everyone can stop bitching about this.... But superbows tv spots' s GREAT move sony...Ascension will be massive just like all god of was games
"Now everyone can stop bitching about this...." You must be new here :)
Full trailer out Friday this is just a teaser people. Good on Sony for buying ad time for the Super Bowl on Sunday Sent from my PS Vita
They probably got to censor a lot of the trailer. You know if they show some crazy violence you know the media is blaming gaming for everything nowadays.
That teaser reminded me of the movies Gladiator and Troy.
for me it was directly to 300
[UPDATE] Sony reportedly set to air trailer for upcoming action game during this weekend's momentous football game; ad to air online and not on TV. http://www.gamespot.com/new...
wait...Sony is actually spending money on their advertising?! wow. Very impressed.
Super Bowl is Feb 3 but trailer says debut Feb 1 WTH.
I freaking love these live action trailers! Best ads since Kevin Butler. Sony is awesome.
Couldn't wait another day to released this couldn't you Sony. XD
As expected. There goes the Heavenly Sword 2/GoW Vita that some people were expecting!
Time to rage against the gods again. @SonyNGP I know :(
What bullshit trailer.
Not as bullshit as your comment:)! this is so cool, can`t wait for 1feb!
Sony should've snuck in a Vita ad.
Like 3mil for 30 seconds.
30-second television advertisements during the Super Bowl sell for approximately $4 million.
that's it? seems like pocket change for such an enormous amount of exposure. I'm not American neither do I watch NFL but I've always been led to believe that Superbowl ad space is one of the most coverted in American media? $4mil/30sec honestly isn't that much.
