Sony Scores with Enormous PS4 Champions League Final Presence

Push Square: "We feel for the players of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Both sides have the ultimate prize in club football within their grasp – but those PlayStation 4 banners must be mighty distracting. We’re not sure how either side is going to be able to focus on putting the ball in the net when they know that they’ll be playing Killzone: Shadow Fall this Christmas." (PS4)

I went to get some Hardee's during half time but I did catch the ps4 ads when i came back that were everywhere "PS4 coming 2013" it made the burger taste all the better every time I looked at it ;D

Fun Fact: Sony's new marketing team used to market Google Chrome and they are the one who created the Halo 3 Believe & Gears 2 Rendezvous campaigns.

Saw the game. The ad pretty much confirms the release of the ps4 in Europe. Good for them, they are a huge market for playstation.

i am just glad that sony has learned that while the exclusives are awesome if they spend a little bit they can have great sales and future potential

nice job sony

this should prove to everyone that old sony with a like of swag is back lol

The Last of Us for the US, CoD:Ghosts for the UK.
Everywhere else, nothing...those ads on the pitch are more effective anyways.

remember most people are probably taking a piss or putting the kettle on during the breaks

Yeah, still, I tip my hat to MS on that one, it was nicely played.

I'm loving the back and forth so far, I hope it escalates to the point that Kaz and Ballmer have a fight in the street Matrix Revolutions style.

xbone also did a little xbone/cod adverts during the NBA conf finals commercials.
TKCMuzzer  +   646d ago
@ANIALATOR136
It always has confused me why there is such a scrap to get an AD on at half time. Your right, 90% of people get up and do something else as soon as the half ends and people in the pub always turn away from the screen to get another pint from the bar. It does seem that sticking it up in big letters every 5 mins on the side of the pitch is far more effective, I mean last night you had no choice but to read the sign it was that bright.
PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt  +   647d ago
ther was no COD xbox one ads on my tv.. im in the US
S2Killinit  +   647d ago
I never understood why they do that with a game that is on both consoles. But I guess people buy it. The only ad I saw here in Cali was The Last of Us for PS3. Awesome ad by the way. Looks like a movie, no joke
Dee_91  +   647d ago
Lol actually they dont
They always advertise COD on xbox when I see the commercials, but they still sale more on ps3.
andrewsqual  +   647d ago
Believe it, it works. I actually had a friend who thought that MGR Revengeance was coming to 360 only last January because it was shown at the Microsoft E3 Press Conference IN 2009!!!!!
I had to lol at him and say actually its funny you say that, the game isn't coming to 360 at all in Japan.
bangshi  +   646d ago
Correction - Activision just advertised COD Ghosts.

Just as they have done for the past few years. Nothing new here.
sway_z  +   647d ago
I just saw XBone Pre order commercial with COD footage during half time Champions League ads....I think MS just tried to steal Sony's thunder!

Did anyone see that coming?

With a game that's going to be on both system lol
sway_z  +   647d ago
I know!!!!

MS always advertises third party games like they are 'Only on Xbox'...but we all know better.

Still, I was surprised to see that ad.... But I can see 'PS4 Coming 2013' Banners throughout the entire game.

Sony does the same with Assassins Creed
Why o why  +   647d ago
It was a very well placed add as it, and the htc one add, ironically, were the only adds I noticed.....

Tell a lie, the gazprom add also stuck out. Touche

At half time I was to busy not watching the TV I reserved my focus for the game

Still, it's hilarious. The whole account is just a pot full of gold.

Activation are the winners, Microsoft are just selling their game for them, everyone man and his dog knows that you can get COD on virtually any system going, even my mum knows and she really doesn't care.

I wouldn't touch neither Xderp Juan nor Call of Doody: Dog shit.

sprinterboy  +   647d ago
Was Sony supposed to show a new advert trailer or half time or something
iistuii  +   647d ago
I thought so, but there was a call of duty ghosts Xbox one advert at half time.
ginsunuva  +   647d ago
Only for Europe.
USA had a Last of Us commercial.
sprinterboy  +   647d ago
Sure it will pop up soon i guess online, saw a COD and battlefield advert

LMFAO!! Sony is making all the right moves this gen, Football(Soccer) is VERY big in Europe so these ads get seen by millions of potential consumers. Sony advertise the future of consoles, while Microsoft advertise a multiplatform game, what has become of Microsoft? Sony and PS4 all the way!!

Why is this surprising? Sony ALWAYS promote their products at football matches!!
H3ADWOUND81  +   646d ago
Wonder how much it cost em.. Prob mega bucks..
PirateThom  +   646d ago
They sponsor the champion's league every year, so it probably didn't cost them anything above what they normally spend in sponsorship costs.
H3ADWOUND81  +   646d ago
Sure yeah, they sponsor alot of other things too, Didn't they sponsor movies on 5?

Sony play the game better than Microsoft undoubtably...
