Irish GTA 4 ad shown on Irish TV in HD.
LOL Awesome. 360 gets the ads too XD
I can actualy "smell" thier jealousy and through the internet, and those little Droid eyes are leaking there whiny, crying, petition sighing tears all over my keyboard. LOL just thought I would join in your pwning of the droids.
Hate to break to you couple of xbot, but wild you wait for your couple extra mission DLC, we ps3 be getting HAZE(May) and MGS4(June) and so on there too many ps3 games i am too lazy to type it all. so enjoy your DLC and GOW 2.
This article isn't about Haze (unproven) and MGS4. Furthermore, your MGS franchise has sold less than the Halo franchise, even though 100 million more PS2s are out there. Gears of War 2 will probably outsell MGS4. I'm getting both, BTW. I might get my PS3 back from my brother-in-law. He can't afford to pay me for it right now. Else I'll buy another in June or July.
I agree, jason :D @ Haze, who gives a fk bout this game? it doesnt loook good, and i said that before it went ps3 exclusive its just sh.t like blacksite was.. a crappy shooter.. metal gear 4? my brother has a shytstation 3 which is a shame, but i can play it on there saves me like £400 :) i dont need no paperweight i want a console that actually has good games.. over and out
I liked that beat and the way they did the commercial. I think M$ is doing there part with gta which is advertising that it is on the 360, Sony is doing there part with the gta bundle.
Exactly both of them are doing what they can to fight for those new console owners. I still think the 360 logo at the end of the commercial has a minimal effect and like i said MSofts biggest advantage is their cheaper console. We'll just have to wait and see which console sells more when GTA4 launches
So uh...Sonarus...which version you getting? PS. PM me if you're scared.
imagine how much money Msoft wouldve thrown at Take Two to get the marketing rights to GTA IV in Europe, who knows they might have it in America too? Either way, a lot of people who just want GTA and see that ad will probably just go okay so its on the 360, funny that I thought itd been on the PS3 too, but hey I geuss i'll just get the 360 for it then. I think it has a big effect.
There could easily be a PlayStation advert like this "PlayStation 3 and Grand Theft Auto" Notice how Microsoft have dropped the ball on it, no mention of DLC? Effect on sales = 0.
Never heard of new commercials at or around the time OF the DLC, when new sales will no doubt occur?
That's stupid. Think about it. This is being released on two console on the same day and the same time. People associate the game with PlayStation and they have no idea there's DLC. Only people that read gaming news have any idea DLC is coming, for Joe Bloggs, the fact this point isn't advertised means it's now a non-factor. Advertising it 6 months down the line isn't going to stop people from buying the PS3 version now.
Yeah, that's true..... But if they did mention it, everyone would hate them for that, too.
360 owns GTA IV like it or not. Watch what happens the week before the launch - it will be Halo 3 all over again with the ad campaing and all.
People are not that stupid second time round.
Sweet ad! Those explosions look great, and the framerate looks perfect the whole time. Can't wait for the 29th!
will just market the DLC as like a sperate game after the GT4 launch. So imagine when GTA4 is long out and then suddenly MS advertise the GTA DLC and gets everyone excited about GTA4 and in particular for the x360 version.
Microsoft state there that the game and system will be sold separately. This confirms no official 360 Bundle. Their advertising will be on TV adverts, lets see how many they can air because I rarely see anything but the same Wii nonsense. Wii this, Wii that.
Ad was good, only time will tell, which console will benefit more from the hardware sales point of view. There is no question that GTA4 will sell more as a software on the 360 just because of its install base. what really matters is can 360 gain a solid lead in terms of hardware sales. Whats interesting is that Sony isn't completely relying on GTA4, they are kind of in a win-win situation. If 360 sells more hardwares, Sony will even out the effect with MGS4, but if Sony sells more hardware, Microsoft next big system sellers(fable2 and Gears2) aren't coming before the last quarter of 2008.
i agree that the big SS arent coming until the end of the year but its looking right now like MS will have at least one first party title every month for the rest of the year starting June. June: NG2 July/August: Too Human, Infinite Undiscovery Sept: Halo Wars Oct: Fable 2 Nov: Gears 2 Dec: Banjo 3 Then you figure their is another game from rare coming out before the end of the year.( This was confirmed by one of the devs working on the game in the Official Banjo 3 thread on Neogaf) and before GDC MS said they had several unannounced titles for this year.
from the list u made i canonly see halo wars, fable 2, and gears of war2 as hardware sellers.
wow, you guys are like the bullies in high school, you know you have no future, while ps3 owners are enjoying the bright outlook ahead, so you sit there and enjoy whatever you can to make yourselves feel better in that moment, so you have this ad, but i will remind you, WE GET THE GAME TOO
Cry me a river. If ps fannies didn't talk so much $hit then we wouldn't have to pick it up and rub it in their face. I'm pretty sure ps3 owners will enjoy their lesser version of GTA IV just as much as the 360 fanboys will enjoy the better and complete experience of GTA IV - I mean after all they are used to $hitty ports by now anyways.
martini I hope you enjoy that GTA experience as much as you can. cuz you know on that console it's only a matter of time before it heats up and fails. so sit on the edge of your seat playing GTA with the ever haunting RRoD on the back of your mind. While us PS3 players can sit back and play all night long without a care in the world. cuz you see, our hardware works and yours is a house fire waiting to happen.
The only time I hear about RROD is from the sony fanboys on N4G hahaha. My Elite with the falcon board is doing just fine quietly humming along and barely ever gets warm at all. Seems like you are worried about the RROD more then me hahaha. ☺
worried about RRoD? nope i don't buy half assed consoles. Humming along? that thing don't hum it's louder then my vacuum.
That was so bad ass, this game is going to be amazing
hold up the 360 is cheaper then the wii in europe? since when holy macaroni batman. Wow i didnt know that. when did microsoft lower the price? so wait a minute ps3 is still outselling the 360 with that price? damn thatis crazy!
The x360 price wasn't the reason why it wasn't selling that well in Europe lately. It is the x360 value compare to the competition that is the problem.
i hope sony learned thier lesson. they didnt sign the timed exclusivity to hold gta 4 and M$ got a hold of it. now there advertising it like crazy. sony better get gta5 as timed exclusive so this doesnt happen again.
Really cool ad!!! Even if I don't need them to make me want this game.
Hands up if you're irish? Saw this the other day on RTE... was like, wtf? First time i've watched tv in ages and this comes on. Yuss! I have a ps3, I bought it but have never played it. Why did I buy it? Mgs4... Its that simple. I'll be getting GTAIV on 360 because of achievements and DLC and None of my friends have ps3's so online would be a lonely place on the psnetwork :P
Woo Irish FTW i saw it on RTé a few days ago ^^
Didnt see this on Tele at all but i see it now :)
conas atá tú buachailli. good to see some irish on here. havent seen the ad yet but ill have a look out for it
*puts hand up* haven't seen this on tv yet, but the hint of some lcd soundsystem being an indication of the calibre of the soundtrack makes me want it even more. oh and the xbox logo at the end won't make me think "oh, i thought that would be on the ps3. oh well, better go buy a 360 to play it on". its more likely to make me (and people that have cognitive reasoning going on) think "oh, this is an ad for the xbox version"
oh really? my mistake. obviously it will make me think the game is only available on the xbox. just like when i see an ad for volkswagen and think its my only choice of car, or burger king is my only choice of burger
Burnout paradise was advertised on tv only for PS3 and even did the whole 'this is living' thing but there wasnt a game store anywhere that didnt make it blindingly obvious that it was multiplatform
Consumers aren't supposed to think "OOOH GTA IV IS EXCLUSIVE TO XBOX DUUHHH *DROOL* LOOK AT DE LOOOOOOGOOOOOOO"... They are supposed to see the advertisement, and see "starting at L199" and say "wowz! i can get a 360 to play GTA IV for L199" Same way US ads of the PS3 end with "starting at $399.99" people see that and go "wow that price is pretty good"
If by pretty good you mean pretty f*cking high compared to 360's, then yeah.
Stellar friggin game!... LOL at the Sony fans looking for any news they can find so they can add the PS3 to the channels so the 360 version of GTA4 won't heat up in the most popular game list on the front page but they only add PS3 when no 360 is shown or mentioned lol.
beyond what console that commercial was for, that vid looks really cool
fanboys make me sick the only reason why there are even fanboyz is because yall dont have both systems to realize they both have great games to offer...cant wait for gta 4
