Sony's PR Team Is Trolling Nintendo & Microsoft With PS4

Sony has definitely taken some odd turns when advertising their hardware in the past. The PS4 isn’t even out of the bag yet and we’re already seeing the gloves come off. Below are some mobile ads found by @Nintex_nl that seem to be targeting Nintendo and Microsoft. The above ad is thought to be hitting Nintendo, more specifically Wii Fit.

as far as i know it was microsoft who stated something along the lines of

"ps4 will not go noticed by most in the uk"

talk about them taking the gloves off.

That UK comment was aimed at the average uninformed consumer. Not gamers like those that follow this site or the industry as a whole.

You take it like they were insulting the gamers personally. Try not to confuse one for the other. That happens far too often on this site.

blackbeld1650d ago

Microsoft got big toes you just can't miss it and accidental step on it.

Trolling? What's wrong with just saying the truth?

NaiNaiNai1650d ago

Lol Darth thinking console owners are gamers.

AHHHAHAHHA, that is classic.

but no, you are just casual kiddies.

EVILDEAD3601650d ago

The Sony PS team isn't trolling, they are just throwing some legal shots at the competition.

MS is as guilty as Sony is in this department throughout the years.

The are feeding the frothing fans what they want....another console war.

It's going down baby..you know what this means though is both MS and Sony gotta back the smack talk up with reality and Sony is taking the first steps to doing this next week.

Come with it Sony. The industry needs this craziness.

Life is good.

I think Sony will just lie about a few specs just to make u guys happy as i think Sony fans want specs more than actual games that show power ???

MaxXAttaxX1650d ago (Edited 1650d ago )

Is that pic from 2005?

[edit] Oh it's Monster Hunter. I didn't realize it was just an upscaled version of the Wii game.

nukeitall1650d ago

@Unlimax:

Those are pretty funny, but we also need some for Sony as well. All in good fun spirit. :D

Microsoft also said something like "the PS3 isn't as good of an entertainment console as the xbox 360 and evertbody knows it" haha which is just stupid btw.

KillrateOmega1650d ago

The butthurt emanating from MS in that statement is simply palpable.

Wagz221650d ago

I just really hope sony is more aggressive with advertising and marketing, they make the quality hardware and games but their marketing team really needs to step it up to show people what their system and games can really do. Things don't sell themselves sometimes so you have to market in a way where it will catch peoples attention.

DOMination-1650d ago

I mean that is a stupid comment. I didn't read the article but whoever said that at MS should be more humble and anyway i think the ps3 is probably better in that department.

With Darvths comment above though i do think MS meant the general public. 99% of the UK will have no idea about the ps4 reveal so that's what they were saying. Of course in the days following the reveal that will change.

Knight_Crawler1650d ago

Its funny...Nintendo should do ad in japan with some kid going into a game store and asking for Monster Hunter for the VITA.

zebramocha1650d ago (Edited 1650d ago )

@knight and he gets soul sacrifice instead and the guy states "it's better than monster hunter 20x over".

strifeblade1650d ago

wow the above poster is really sensitive about the whole monster hunter issue. Everytime a guy mentions monster hunter 50 vita guys are like

"wat soul sacrafice is betterzzz, i played itzz fuxxxorz amazin, monster hunter= no good.. itzz only good on psp but its on 3ds now so now no good"

vita fanboys really sensitive at the moment LMAO

PFFT1650d ago

SS hasnt even been released. So how can you be so sure it will be better than MH???? Let it release, PLAY it then say whether its better or not.

user39158001650d ago

TENTON YOU HAVE NOT FIGURE IT OUT YET, BUT YOU ARE THE BIGGEST TROLL i HAVE SEEN HERE ON n4g

NegativeCreepWA1650d ago (Edited 1650d ago )

Apparently you've never met Nazism or TheMart just to name a few from the old days.

KaBaW1650d ago (Edited 1650d ago )

I guess "Nazism" is codename for Nasim? :P Funny kid, I miss him.
TheMart, I don't think was quite as bad as Nasim, but, yes. Good ol days.
PowerOfGreen, too. Oh lordy lord. There was a lot of good ones. Ahhhh. :)

Shadow Flare1650d ago (Edited 1650d ago )

Few people on here likely remember what this site was like when this gens consoles launched. Wonder if it will happen again with the ps4 launch lol

Back then there was no bubble system either. You could comment as much as you wanted and I remember some articles reaching over 1000 comments. Over 1000 comments of fanboy mentalness. And people think the site is a trollfest now lol

Stedron1650d ago

oh yeah the Mart forgot about him...man he was troll shit!!

FunkMacNasty1650d ago (Edited 1650d ago )

I dunno.. tenton might be tied with StrongMan for the "troll of the year" award..

It wouldn't surprise me to find out Sony or MS had paid trolls on this site. After all it is the biggest collective of gaming news on the Internet.
