Over the weekend, PlayStation Denmark decided to welcome their console rivals, the Xbox One to their late arrival in the country. Xbox DK replied to them on Facebook and promised some friendly revenge.
let's see what they might come up with.. mmmmmaybe...a...........cologn e?
If I were being truly evil, I'd leave a dozen X1 power bricks in the carpark, prompting Sony to commission a crane to remove them all. I'm just messing btw before some over-sensitive chap throws a fit.
Really cool Ad. Interesting to see how MS will respond. This could launch an advertising war between the two, which could lead to very funny situations.
I like to see stuff like this on both parts. Toob ad these companies can't launch such ads in the U.S. where everyone is sooo over sensitive about competition and the like. glad Denmark still has a sense of humor.
sorry, wrong article.
Wouldn't it be crazy if Sony responded with an EPIC Kevin Butler ad? I know it will probably never happen but damn that would be great. I agree, this could start a funny ad war. Let them duke it out, we (the consumer) will only win in the end...
Really loving Sonys new advertisement agency. So much better advertising than last generation as there actually trying and it shows in the sales clearly. Nothing better than a bit of friendly rivalry, its when they start showing off with big heads and get petty gamers don't care for.
I totally agree, I still miss those Kevin butler commercials though.
not that it matters that much but they have several agencies for different parts of the world. a few for european areas, americas etc. i do love it when they get clever though. reminds me of the audi-bmw billboard war that broke out here in los angeles a few years ago. look it up if you're interested. you'll get a laugh out of it.
Kevin Butler was the best thing to ever come out of Sony's marketing firms. Hilarious pandering to the fan boy wars, while still being able to give info/market the product they were trying to market, and the actor was awesome on his delivery. The Gran Turismo one is still one of my favorite game commercials of all time.
I do agree but the biggest part where MS failed and Sony is in the lead this gen is clearly because of their stance when they announce the xone. DRM etc.
Like Sony was really trolling
I can already see it... when Xbox Denmark responds to Sony Denmark's Trolling Welcome Video all hell will break loose and N4G will be filled with hate articles bashing Microsoft. Fanboys really need to lighten up, specially Sony fanboys.
Just like when MS fanboys get all up in arms when one of Sony's execs says something snarky about the X1? It goes both ways. No one is innocent in this Fanboy War. :P
Are you kidding? All you ever hear on this site is how bad Sony treats Microsoft, and how Microsoft are so abused by Sony. Xbox fans sure have a victim complex anymore!
You do realise you look like far worse of a fanboy when you say dumb s*** like this?
xbox has lost any importance in northern and eastern Europe now.
That's Xbox Germany's job ;) making a cologne.
Ha, very done! That would give them something to pass the time.
Thanks! I'm glad you thought it was funny, but I'm sure they're actually a pretty busy bunch (any German is busy, they're hard workers), wasn't really intended as a fanboy remark though, just a geographical pun :D
I don't even think there's a Xbox Denmark MSFT excuse for the delay in Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden, Danmark, Finland) was localization for Kinetec wasn't ready X1 launched last week and still no localisation...no explanation from MSFT at all, they treat their customers as little kids...
I hope everyone realises the xbox/ps teams all know each other well. I think they are friends outside of work so they just messing with each other. Its friendly banter. Too many people getting a bit too emotional over this.
Oh Can't wait. Should be fun. Also something funny I say on Gaf earlier but the Xbox twitter account hasn't been used since 23 Feb 2011 - https://twitter.com/XboxDK/...
Page doesn't exist? :(
Was it trolling? I thought it was good sportsmanship. Oh well.
Sony fans think it's good fun. Xbox fans think it's trolling. I just thought it was hilarious like the destiny fragrance commercial. People stress out on useless things. Boggles my mind.
Yeah you'd swear people weren't dying of hunger all over the world.
I think you meant Fan*boys As a MS fan, I thought this was great and better be returned in true rivalry fashion. I used to do this stuff to our High School rivals and again in College :) good times and all in the name of sportsmanlike competition.
For anyone who wants to hate on Sony as trolling read the article, it even shows MSFT doing this to Sony last gen when the PS3 was off to a rough start. Just good clean fun, not like they tagged the MSFT walls with stencils from Infamous SS.
I think that video was a clever, I hadn't seen it before now. Pretty funny.
Has the Xbone launched in all area's now? I assume it's DOA just like Japan USA and UK.
His source is "I assume". Read :\
I like this kind of back and fourth pranking.. It makes for a good time. Too bad the enraged fanboys from either side can take stuff too personally sometimes. I sit here and enjoy.
Yeah I don't see how the video was Sony trolling at all. Seemed like good fun to me.
Can hardly be considered trolling >_> more like a surprise or prank.
Is it just me or did that video start off pretty rapee
Whatever it is it will surely make Sony fanboys very upset.
Be carefull what you say, You will lose youe last bubble. You can not say anything bad about the SonyFanboys or the PS4 here.
Notice you both use the word "fanboys" which is a subtle attempt at trolling people who like Sony. You wonder why you have one bubble? There are more Sony fans on here in general, I guess that's just how it is... If you really dislike it maybe you could join another site? Or do you just want to play the victim card?
@ thexmanone, I remember a few years ago here on N4G when it was, "You can not say anything bad about the MS Fanboys or the 360 here." Times change and so do people. nothing to see here. Move along.
Man you guys are just as bad as Sony fanboys. Every single article I read I see you posting the same crap. Waaahhh Sony fanboys Waaahhh. Seriously get over yourselves.
look everyone the 1 bubble brigade is here to rectify xb1s image.. and act like sony isn't doing anything ms didn't already do last gen.. do you guys read the actual articles or just pull assumptions from thin air by reading the title only??.. smh
Why are you so hung up on Sony? Like, every comment I see from you is something bashing Sony. Let it go man, just enjoy gaming as a whole... You'll be a much happier gamer if you do.
Reminded me a little of the old commercials from back in the day with Crash Bandicoot in the parking lot at the Nintendo offices with the bullhorn, just playful competition, not like that recent childish and possibly illegal cologne add for Destiny that came out.
I don't think Microsoft or Sony has an issue with one another. I think they wish each other the best or at least for the most part. We fanboys are the ones that flame the fan war but in the end it's all in fun and most of us will own both consoles before this gen ends.
Finally someone I can agree with! This is all BUSINESS to them NOT PERSONAL! Fanboys are the ones making this console war personal. Frankly, it's pathetic, fighting a worthless virtual war. There are more battles out there in the REAL world that are worth fighting for and not this stupid console war. Pick a console or buy all of them then STFU and get a life. No need to brag that your console is better or superior because that is very immature, stupid and a WASTE OF TIME!
does sony really want an ad war? careful pockets aint that deep
what is a xbox one?
Now this is my kind of competition...=)
Wait, people are butthurt about that little playful vid? All that banner said was "Dear Xbox. Welcome to the game. Love, Playstation."
Payback for that fruity destiny ad.
Awesome, that was pretty good cinematography also
