Microsoft has recruited England football captain Steven Gerrard and Star Trek actor Zachary Quinto for the global TV advertising campaign for its new Xbox One games console, which launches next month.
Great ad this & The Best Place to Play PS4 ad. Next-gen has arrived :)
Both where very cool ads and you can tell Microsoft dropping that money hat to get Zachary Quinto and Steven Gerrard in the ad. Very well done.
That was.......no words. (stands and begins to clap)
Zombie made me lol!
now THIS is what i call a commercial..not some high school musical.
lol but you know that PS one was in college not HS.
Haha, nice one MS
That was a really good advert, glad they are finally using the "All in One." sentence in advertising now; should have been their slogan since the beginning.
Steven Gerrard? haha, did they just raise their middle finger for all MU fan over england?
Apparently Alex Ferguson thinks he is not a top class player... But funny enough he thought Moyes was a top class coach...
I was expecting a link to see it not read about it. Anyone got a link
Thank you. +bubs. Good advert. Looks like it cost a fortune
WOW they have a famous actor in their ad I MUST BUY XBONE NOW !!!
Yeah forget about the games they showed, its the actor that will make you buy the Xbox One! YEAAAAAAAH! /s
There were games in that 1:34 ad???
Great not they going to get all the star trek movies 2weeks ahead when they come out on dvd.... -.-
I think its a nice ad. Its good to see the different approaches Sony and MS are taking withttheir advertising. Very straight forward but effective We see MS explaining more about functions are how to use it and how it applies to you, while sony is more subtle and about creative advertising.
I like that ad, one of the best next gen ads I've seen so far to promote anything next gen. My 2 favorite so far is the Battlefield 4 ads cause that just gets me hype to play that game more and more and this one cause it actually shows people playing and using some of the features of the XBO.
Number of consoles sold in Manchester: 0
To be honest, I do like the fact that MS has to put in work for the X1. There is no lie a lot of consumers are leaning towards Sony for the start for Next-gen. But that don't mean MS will lose. They have done some good changes so far. And I'm not the one who is drinking the Kool-Aid with all the BS rumors floating around like turds in the toilet bowl on the internet. Sony focus is straight games. MS focus is games and more. And there is nothing wrong with that. Just aim for blockbusters like Halo for your fans. Good commercial.
that was a pretty cool tv Ad.. The Zombie was pretty cool touch Loosing the Arm...smile. Great Ad.
Bad ass! Well done.
@1:02 So you navigate to the film you want and instead of a simple click or gesture you have to say the whole title Xbox goto "Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return of the Revenge of the Terror of the Attack of the Evil, Mutant, Hellbound, Flesh-Eating Subhumanoid Zombified Living Dead, Part 3" http://youtu.be/bFEoMO0pc7k...
"Steven Gerrard stars in ad for new games console" PFFFFFT Zachary Quinto mate.
Microsoft is finally going the right way. Even their SURFACE 2 ad is pretty neat and to the point. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
xbox one, PS4 on
'Steve Gerrard, Gerrard .........'
Nice avatar, makes me want to play cannon fodder, meglomania... Chaos engine....
And Sensible Soccer of course! :)
That's a great ad! Props, Microsoft.
