Sony follows the lonely path

The new PS3 commercial shows a handful of games set to what sounds like a clip from a Gladiator or Braveheart type movie. A warrior with a middle ages accent (ye olde accent) rallies his comrades before a glorious battle. To Sony this console business is a battle, and a bloody $3 billion one so far.

Only declaring war openly and drawing lines in the sand is not what Sony needs to do now. The call for brotherhood in the commercial clearly creates an us-versus-them image but it is this exclusive mentality (remember, the PS3 is like a fine dining experience) that put Sony in third place this generation. Launching at $600 and offering the bleeding edge of movie playing capabilities did not make the PS3 a very accessible machine and these advertisements only reinforce the idea that if I am not hardcore, if I am not willing to join Sony is a vicious battle against its enemies, then the PS3 is not for me.

Why is Resistance or socom not in there?

I think they should include multiplatorm games too.

OR JUST A VIDEO OF MGS4 all the way would do them some good too.

JVIDICAN3817d ago

they have a MGS4 commercial it just plays extremely late

that speech is taken from Henry the V by an unknown author named Shakespeare

So it's us against them is it? Alright I'm ready, lets go. Charge!

Oh I don't care it's funny.

deeznuts3817d ago

CaptainHowdy, no it's not. It is from that gay character from the movie Tombstone!

Am I the only one who thought that this commercial actually topped Apple's ads for lamest ever?

think the people who watch the commercial are even aware of what the guy in the backround is talking about.

Not to mention even if they knew they would not get the Sony vs. others message unles they are fanboys.

So.........this article is pointless.

aiphanes3817d ago

There will be more with Resistance 2 Killzone 2 and Socom Confrontation after E3.

Sony is still the best gamming company...they only thing left to buy on the Xbox 360 is Gears of War 2...

GiantEnemyCrab3817d ago (Edited 3817d ago )

Hrm. Funny my list is a lot longer than just Gears of War 2.

Congratulations on the most ignorant comment I've read on N4G today.

EDIT: LOL @ the disagrees. This cess hole never changes.

Breakfast3817d ago

12 disagrees in 20 minutes.

Voice your opinion N4G!

NO_PUDding3817d ago

Well, I didn't disgaree, but I do disagree. I will rpess agree, just to be nice though.

Anyway, maybe you shoudl show us your list. Alan Wake, Fable 2 and the GTA DLC is all I can see from here on out.

Althoguh that thign Molyneux is makign that Superfragilistic told me about sounds awesome, I think it's still VERY conceptual.

littletad3817d ago

Anyways... there are far more games to look forward to than Gears 2.

i really like this commercial...each time i see it it pumps me up...that speech is awesome and then the big close up of the ps3 at the end is sweet...if i didnt own a ps3 this commercial would very much make me want to buy one but i dont think anyone that sees this commercial is really gonna ponder about what it "might" mean or imply

Syko3817d ago

I have to admit I also like this commercial, and I absolutely hated the way Sony was handling the PS3 before and just after it's launch. Now I am a PS3/360/Wii Owner and the PS3 is closing the gap on my personal favorite of the 3...The 360. Can't wait for LBP.

ICUP3817d ago (Edited 3817d ago )

Same here, i thought the commercials was epic and funny.

np, this is a non-profit charitable organization i put together to help the 360 owners because i really care for their well being and want them to learn to control their anger and frustrations so they can become zen with the peaceful universe and admit that they truly want to snuggle the purple bunny.

we're doing this for them. trying to help the community as much as we can.

P.S. you might want to edit it like i did in the footer. we're not allowed to use fanboy name calling in the Gamer Zone.
