Sony’s PlayStation 4 Marketing Slogan Is "Greatness Awaits"

Sony is going to give PlayStation 4 a big marketing push and the keywords behind it are "Greatness Awaits." Siliconera obtained a leak from a company working on the campaign. The commercial starts off by showing an empty road in a small town. A lone guy walks down the road towards the camera and says, "Who are you not to be great? You, with the imagination of a brilliant child and the powers of an ancient god." (PS4, Sony)

I am glad a little bit of swag is back with playstation brand, IMO PS brand is at its strongest at the moment

Ps3 was a tough pill to swallow early on but Sony made it worth the wait but from now on Sony lets start with day one

Killzone for online MP
Infamous for great single player
drive club for car crazies like me lol
Indie developers for all of us who like a little something different

Ps4's launch is already looking much better than ps3. E3 can't get here soon enough

Only sad thing is now I need to plug in 2 systems which isn't gonna be a lot of fun, but is it what it is. I don't want to sell my ps3 anytime soon since I have a lot of games in my collection

Off topic:

What are the chances we get ultra HD collections next gen hahahhahah

I think those early PS3 commercials were awesome.
aCasualGamer  +   749d ago
It's fair to say that they were ahead of their time. Seriously if you look at some PS2 and PS1 commercials, even they were ahead of their time.

Brilliant in each of their way.

Commercials award worthy.
Conzul  +   749d ago
To be fair, the crying baby doll was epic.

No one may have known what was going on, but they sure as hell weren't gonna forget that commercial any time soon. And isn't that the point?
Bathyj  +   748d ago
Oh I've heard plenty of crying babies since PS4 was announced.
hkgamer  +   748d ago
I think the adverts in the UK are pretty decent. I did like the old PSone adverts because they were different.
But I guess gaming and gaming perceptions have changed since those days all thanks to sony and maybe MS. COD MW3 advert was cool, WoW advert had different celebs talking about their (fake) experiences. DS had lots of different celebs playing games like brain training, mario etc...
Sony needs celebs to be in their adverts, it just makes it so much more memorable and its just the power of celebs these days.
Axonometri  +   749d ago
Wait wait... This won't even work post Holiday 2013.

Maybe, it just seems like they are saying we will always be awaiting greatness if this is for post launch.

"Greatness awaits"

Its aimed at people without a PS4. For those people greatness awaits once they buy one. It works for everyone up to launch and everyone who doesnt have one post launch. It works just fine.

Being an Advertising Student at University, I have to say, the slogan is quite generic...
G20WLY  +   748d ago
Yeah man, Sony really dropped the ball, I mean why on Earth didn't they hire students to sort their advertising?! lol ;P

Personally, I like it.
iceman06  +   748d ago
Well being a student, you must understand that MOST slogans are generic in essence. Most slogans are just words, until they are placed in the proper context. Sure, some slogans are more catchy than others. If that is what you are saying, then I guess to each his own. However, I would say that it's really the imaging, the content, the music, i.e. the whole package that sells the campaign.

Champions League is huge (especially the final), would not be surprised if Sony decide to throw something in during the ads.

Jek_Porkins  +   749d ago
I think my favorite slogan from Sony was "Live in your world, play in ours". Something about that was magical at the time, probably because I had a terrible job and used to game to get away from real world issues.

Definitely my favorite, too.

OffTopic: I just read this from your little profile page

"Proud owner of an Xbox 360/Kinect, Wii U, Wii, PS3/Move! Game on!"

So instead of showing your support for all the systems you "supposedly" own, you directly/indirectly bash every other system except the 360?

On Topic: Sony always has good slogans, and this one seems fitting for all the work that's been put into the PS4.
Jek_Porkins  +   749d ago
When have I bashed any systems? I think that the way this site tends to lean (Heavily Sony), I state my opinions in a positive manner and a lot of people don't like that here.

I see the "supposedly" thrown in too, feel free to message me if you're interested in adding me on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii or Wii U, though I don't remember my Wii Friends Code offhand.
MetalProxy  +   749d ago
Yep Coogy, porkins is definitely pro xbox but there is a good chance he does own other systems.

Skate-AK  +   749d ago
He said "Proud owner of an Xbox 360/Kinect, Wii U, Wii, PS3/Move! Game on!" That means he is a proud owner of all the consoles listed. How is he bashing anything? I think you misinterpreted what he said.
LogicStomper  +   748d ago
Dude, calm the damn farm. At no point during that comment did he bash Playstation. All he said was his favourite slogan and you accuse him of bashing? Also, what is wrong with supporting consoles you don't own? Is there a law against it or something? To me it just looks like you automatically assume he's posting a fan-boyish comment.

Read before you type next time.
Hicken  +   748d ago
He was talking about Jek's comments in general; more than for Microsoft, Jek takes the negative road when it comes to Sony- and to a lesser extent, Nintendo- news and articles. He seems to have toned it down a little in the past week or so, but his comment history speaks for itself, or should. Always- or very nearly always- some sort of skepticism or doubt when it comes to Sony, in particular.

It seems he, among others, comments specifically to rile up certain groups. There are some who only have negative things to say in articles about certain brands or consoles, as well as those who are reasonable except when they comment on certain franchises.

Funny how people say things like "read before you type," while they apparently did not read, themselves.
duli14  +   748d ago
tbh I don't think he ever bash sony or any other system, but he does support Microsoft's shitty business practices.

HyperBear  +   749d ago
That's not bad actually! I was kind of hoping they were going back to the classic/retro slogan(s), but this is different and it stands out.

A man likes this slogan for the start of the gen. He sees the jump to next gen as being the greatness that awaits. A company will need a new one 2 or 3 years in but this is fantastic for the start.
