This makes a lot more logical sense... but I would have loved Sony to go crazy and buy up a whole ad slot.

That would have been nice.

This is a way of saying GOW is god!

Love every GOW.

Sony's marketing department comes up short again. What's the point at all? Why bother with this?

Wedge192141d ago

Exactly. GoW has a big enough following and has been advertised around enough. people are going to buy it. It doesn't need any more ad space. Give the budget to something that really needs it. The Vita for instance.

Agreed. A funny or cool ad for Vita would have been good.

It is probably a hell of a lot cheaper. Super bowl ad slots are insanely pricey. There still be a lot of people watching it on the stream

alexcosborn2141d ago

Agreed. Though I'm not surprised.

Smart move. As much as I would love to see GoW:A in the Superbowl, it's almost $4mil for 30 seconds of time, and that is almost a full games worth of money.

game is so sick it only needs to play the ad once. lol

Good, it would have been a waste of money otherwise. Especially for a live action trailer which isn't selling the game directly.
