God of War: Ascension ad to be Shown During Online Super Bowl Stream Only

People went crazy when Sony released their latest ad tease titled ‘God of War: Ascension Super Bowl 2013 Commercial Teaser’, assuming, naturally, that that meant the commercial would be shown during the Super Bowl – something that is watched by over 160 million people. Well, actually, that’s not so, Sony has revealed.
-PSLS (God of War: Ascension, PS3)

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

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

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

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
Tei777  +   630d ago
Good, it would have been a waste of money otherwise. Especially for a live action trailer which isn't selling the game directly.

LOL that's sad.

Pointless. Just air it during american idol or sonething. Or youtube ads.
