Sony Apologizes For Horrible Attempt At Marketing

It seemed that Sony is just desperate now. The actually made a website called "AllIWantForXmasIsAPSP.com" and it was so obvious Sony was behind it. I mean, they really tried way too hard to make it seem like the site was owned by a "hip" 20-something who decided to make a whole website devoted to how awesome the PSP is, and how he wanted nothing else for Christmas but a PSP.

The story is too old to be commented.

god they are terrible! "Busted. Nailed. Snagged. As many of you have figured out (maybe our speech was a little too funky fresh???), Peter isn't a real hip-hop maven and this site was actually developed by Sony. Guess we were trying to be just a little too clever. From this point forward, we will just stick to making cool products, and use this site to give you nothing but the facts on the PSP." and the do "!!!" these things with a one added "don't just wear it – pwn it!!1!" LAME!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sony has the absolute worst marketing team. Their commercials are moronic! A crying baby? Um yea that makes me want to play video games...

because you remembered it. that was the whole point of that commercial. it was meant to be so wierd and out there that it was bound to embed itself into your memory.

that baby crying commercial may not be related to videogames at all, but it triggered curiousity, shock, and inquiry. this can be considered "gold" in the advertising world.

the intention behind the commercial was genius!

and actually buying the product are 2 separate things. i remember lots of commercials. it doesn't make me want to buy the products. most people buy things they are familiar with, or have researched. i've yet to see anyone sitting around watching tv, a commercial comes on, and then they hop right up to go buy something.

i don't think the commercial was meant to make you wanna go buy a PS3 right after watching it, but maybe that wasn't the intention of the commercial at all.

there are commercials that are informative, and then there are ones that effects you subconciously. the result of what it was meant to do varies from person to person. this one isn't meant to be informative. there are already other PS3 commercials out there that are informative.

the one thing i do know is that it did it's job. this type of advertising isn't new. i could go on and on about marketing and advertising and be all philisophical, but ima end it here.
