I think that the Baseball player image is really impressive, Sony have some really interesting and strange but cool ads!
The first one, besides the controller looks like a God Of War 3 add.
The second, besides the baseball player looks like Resistance 2 add.
Totally agree with you dear DORA, the pics are AMAZING... Call me "fanboi" if you want but this week was a great deal for the PS3 ^_^ and it is NOT over YET
Yep, this week was huge for PS3, everything is rapidly getting better for it, especially since the beginning of 2008.
...at the picture with the girl. Now look towards the bottom center of that picture and you can see a head there looking at you. Just looking at you..............MOM!
it looks like art in a museum
I really like Sony's dark and mysterios advertising, it goes well with the system.
2nd picture I see square, X, triangle but cant find O lol...where's Wald(O)
The circle is on the right of the dismembered hand. I can't find the square though. ?_?
on the bottom center of the..well..centerpiece they have the buttons put together, but ur right I cant find circle. i dont want to believe its the wagon wheel when the others were pretty obvious..hmm.this is gonna keep me up.
the square is on the arm of the soldier under the banner of the x
the circle has to be on a red flag...thats where the rest of them where...it can't be the wagon wheel... found it. you have to enlarge the picture...and its close to the wagon wheel...
I'm sick of the "this is living" ads in all Pal regions. They kinda suck and are weird. They should replace them with these in a moving form. They look awesome.
SCEE really needs to get there games up because SCEA really has been doing great for a while now when it comes to there T.V. ads.
they are very unique kinda looks like a mix between lord of the rings and something Egypt. At the same time though doesn't really say anything about the PS3 (like those forsaken "this is living ads" but it will draw gamers attention .
PS3 in a White Room campaign=fail "Ladies and Gentleman"+"Universe of Entertainment" themed campaign=excellent Construction of a PS3 world campaign=maybe
I like this art style quite a bit and hope it works out for them, but I have a feeling there will be quite a cross section of love/hate.
I find it strange and kinda laughable that Sony is portraying itself as the Bad Guy. Picture with Guy: Nazi Picture with Girl: Orc army from LOTR (Mordor in the background) I find it laughable because everytime someone decides to buy a PS3, we invite them to "join the darkside," hahaha.
I think it's cool that we say welcome to the Darkside and the ps3 version of Soul calibur gets Darth vadar.
When I saw the first pic, I was like Oh My God, its GOD OF WAR, but then I was like naa, she is holding a controller :$
Anyone find it strange that the Guy picture resembles the Third Reich (German Nazi's) and the Girl picture resembles the Orc Army (LOTR)? The only thing they're missing is the Empire from star wars.
Mmmm...star wars? Who else thing that they are going to make a third one. Which will be a futuristic one, featuring an Alien ^^. And the background will be Aliens making human do the statue, idk have imagination. XD
Whoa these looks so cool.
ok so : nintendo = the hobbits ps3 = sauron xbox = ....gollum O.o?
How much time would that take to freakin' create?
Wow these look amazing. I wonder when these pictures will start showing up on Billboards and such.
Hard to intrepret what it means but it looks great.
God Of War 3 and Resistance 2 are coming!!!!
No, no, no. It shows that you will get so immersed in the games that you will feel like you are in the middle of the game and things are happening all around you, thus becoming part of the game. You become the center point of the game. See it now? It a great advertisement!
I completely agree with your analysis, you become part of the game (is this the 4th dimension we've heard rumors about, jk :P)
lol! Who knows? Maybe thats what they meant with the whole 4D thing. Just to add another point. It's not only what I said before about things happening all around you but also thing that are also happening to you. The first picture: Lots of concentration on the face and she is in one piece. The second picture: Either he is being put back together (like the game is about to begin again) or he is being taken apart (like the game is over). His hand is detached as is his head. Its hard to say what is going on in picture #2. Also there is the Square, circle, X, and triangle right under his closest foot.
Good Gawd Man!!!
Way to go...I didn't see it at first but you nailed it!!!!
I really see it from that view point now, that some pretty remarkable advertising!!!
@ Blackmoses Thanks, its a blessing........ and a curse.
Those r really cool... i wonder where they came up with the idea for these
If anyone finds these in 1080P for my PS3 wallpaper can you PM me. These look awesome. The WWII one seems to me like they are worshiping PS3, but in the Fantasy one it's like they the PS3 is a forgotten relic of a long lost civilization. odd. Edit: and in the WWII one, are they forcing slaves to build this statue?... still looks amazing though
my interpretation is this: girl (lord of the rings theme) symbolizes blu-rays victory over hd-dvd. boy (world war 2 theme) symbolizes Sony's almost complete victory in Europe over the 360.
making sony "nazi's" and microsoft "Jews", but there is definitely a ww2 theme.
So...Who else thing that they are going to make a third one. Which will be a futuristic one, featuring an Alien ^^. And the background will be Aliens making human do the statue, idk have imagination. XD
is proably not fot the U.S.
My predictions of comments here: "See this is Sony, always focusing on graphics and ignoring gameplay" Now we wait to see if my prediction is correct
Did you manage to get Shara? :).
wow that's really cool
Linger in Shadows and now this?? I guess Play Beyond is making much more sense right now.
I see Sony is trying a nontraditional route for this advertisement.
its about the scope and detail we should spect on the PS3 soon...ohh and also that sony wins the console war (in every territory) with the bests games ever created (MGS4) making us wanting to make statues in gratitude
they said it would be game of the year hands down.its gonna have 200 endings.it madness!PLAY B3YOND!!
its just like the trailer in the PS3 store.go download it and you will say,yep its FALLOUT.the game is gonna have 200 endings!PLAY B3YOND!!
those are pretty sick!
How dare they put a wire on that controller..
There's no wire... i think u may have mistaken scaffolding for a wire
These are really cool. Getting rid of their old advertisement people was a good choice.
from what i get from it also is this....
'THE PLAYSTATION GAMER'(male or female).............
(built,created,forged,born,wh atever)from the continuous play of playstation products or ps3.
to me,the statues seem to express that as well.
no way they can use the boy theme in germany!
That pic just became my new desktop...SICK!
it could be game magazine ads.
It's strikes me as very appropriate that both ads involve rebuilding a gamer. After the year they had last year, and now the amazing one they are having this year. It's almost like they are telling every one how the future will look similar to their past (before 2007). It's actually brilliant art because it can be taken in many different ways.
They are also on the first pic. You can see them being forged and placed on the base of the statue. The circle is laying down and was hard to notice at first.
PS ads means these ads are quite effective.
the trailer for that new "secret game" LostInShadows or whatever it was called. Whatever it is, it looks like it belongs on fantasyartdesign.com in the surreal category...I like surreal so its a good thing
Its not that hard to understand if you take a good look at the 2 pics! the first pic: Everything is medieval looking and older looking including a stone statue which IMO is being torn down! and the buildings in this world are pretty much destroyed or smoldering Pic 2: A more modern world, i dont think they were going for a WW2 theme but just displaying a significant time change between the 2 pictures, also it looks like they are putting the finishing touches on a more modern metal statue! SO PRETTY MUCH THIS IS SAYING THIS IS A NEW ERA FOR GAMING AND GAMERS AND ALTHOUGH I DON'T THINK THE FLAGS ARE MEANT TO BE SYMBOLS OF THE NAZIS I COULD BE WRONG. I BELIEVE THE FLAGS REPRESENT PLAYSTATION FTW!!!
if you add a few lines to the x it becomes a swastika for pic 2...cool pic but it sends mixed and probably unwanted messages about sony/ps3.
