Sony isn't known for their great marketing of PlayStation products, but do you think they've learned their lesson? Will PS4 ads be everywhere in 2013?
With the way Microsoft has been advertising the PS4 it will be.
i think MS PR is doing a great job at making ps4 look even better
word of mouth is the best seller of ps4
Not sure. Microsoft has a lot of money for advertisements.
Yes. But as they say its not about size but what you do with it. Even more so in that regard its Sony which has a clear message and a system which is more powerful and accessible. Meanwhile MS is trying to re-tailor their message while trying to keep to the old.
I still haven't seen any Xone tv commercials yet. I've seen that PS4 taco bell commercial and the Greatness Awaits on a daily basis.
Not only that, but the PS4 spots are on during big-view events. I've seen it like a dozen times today, most of which were during the NLDS baseball games.
One thing i thought was odd is that Microsoft made a deal with the NFL and they show that Taco Bell commercial during almost every game.
That's also true. Sony's definitely getting their system the exposure it needs. I've seen a handful of XB1-related commercials, mostly in relation to FIFA, NCAA, and Madden. Not very promising, to be honest.
Yes. Sony went with a great firm this time around. They really know how to sell stuff. Also, Yoshida's pretty good with a handicam.
"Sony isn't known for their great marketing of PlayStation products" well they have been marketing the PS4 extremely well so far, let's hope they keep it up. and i think Sony has hired new marketing teams... because everything Sony has amazing marketing at the moment, especially the Xperia Z mobile phones
I hope so! The PS3 adverts in the UK were generally awful, and overall the quantity was lacking. One of the few places to see PS3 ads was in Champions League football. On the other hand, MS advertised heavily and in primt time slots, and made a lot of multiplat titles appear to be exclusive through clever misdirection. I've not seen advertising for either next gen console really kick in yet, so will have to wait and see what they do. I think we can all agree that MS have the deeper pockets for marketing, so hopefully Sony can compete.
MS ads aren't the best but MS has way too much money not to win the ad campaign.
