Sony marketing takes a swipe at both Nintendo and Microsoft: is it in good spirit?

Digitally Downloaded writes: "On the other hand, the negative sentiment that is sweeping through parts of the gaming community is not something I would have thought Sony wanted. Like a political campaign, when one politician directly attacks another, this kind of aggressive behaviour comes across to the audience as quite defensive." (PS4, Sony)

Sounds more like N4G comments then advertisement. I doubt Sony had anything to do with these ads, they probably outsourced it to some lame ad agency with poor taste.

Also I'm curious what technology PS4 will use to put an end to "13 year-old trash talkers".

If it was outsourced to an Ad agency, Sony marketing would still have final sign-off on any campaign.

Hasn't there been like 15 iterations of this same story over the past week? I feel like I'm in some strange parallel internet or something. Sometimes I think I have Alzheimer's... then I realize it's just n4g.
poor taste??

Its funny and xbox and nintendo could do the same thing, like is your tech gonna be from earth this time or how can u have such great tech and overlook the memory issue or stop making TVs and phones and concentrate on the playstation. JK. Anyway its all in fun. And no u cant drown out the 13 yr olds but i caution all playstation owners that whined about cross game chat. Be careful who u friend because anyone under the age of 16 will constantly send u party invites until u wanna smash everything. And i hope at least playstation allows us to play without internet because theres so many times i just wanna play by myself.

Just another manchild that got out of his pen and made it to the keyboard...whether he was paid or not. I imagine there are number on this site that appeal to that type of humor...as expected.

Are we still believing everything we see on the internet? I guess Nintendo made this one too:

This is a broader discussion than a news piece. It's more looking at whether the marketing campaign by Sony is a good strategy or not.
SoundGamer  +   673d ago
Maybe it should be whether or not it's from Sony at all.

It's MattS. His submissions consist of old news and bad opinion.

There has been a lot of these floating around lately and not a single one has been actually linked to Sony by any credible source. Yet that won't stop the bloggers running with their story will it, it's like credibility doesn't matter anymore.

Can somebody please give me one single shred of evidence that Sony created any of these ads? ANYBODY?

Unless somebody posts evidence I recommend we downvote this site and any more that keep trying this crap.

Story Quality - WTF
Like this story - er, no.

Well Nintendo's online is severely lacking and the masses are realizing Live is a price gouge (arbitrarily restricts online MP which is offered free on every other gaming device) so Sony has full rights to go on the attack.

They spent all gen recovering from the hardware design mistakes of Kutaragi and their own myopic hubris.

I'm just not sure if it's "The Empire Strikes Back" or the "The Return of the Jedi".

I hope no one corporation dominates but Nintendo messed up with Wii U and Xbox lost it's way chasing after Wii gamers, who are now probably iPhone/Android, tablet and facebook gamers.

I'm sorry but where's all the fuss about Time Warner, Dish, Direct TV, Samsung phones vs Apple, Alka-Seltzer vs NyQuil, and countless other products. So poking fun at your competition is off limits for console makers. Give me a break. Are we all 12 years old or something? Man people now days will turn anything into a story. Everybody is so sensitive and it's just getting worse and worse. These are consoles people not your girlfriend/boyfriend or family member. Everything doesn't have to be the end of the world....I'm screaming out loud now....AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

well they can do what ever they want, just don't get caught later for doing the same like when they patent using finger motion as a gun trigger. That was quite embarrassing.
