New Playstation TV Spot Commercial Reflections
that was a good ad in general, but as a gamer viewing that, it just sucked, a kid looking at "something" and just flashing ps3 isnt going to cut it. Come on sony, you have the games now just show them to the world!
There are a bunch of 360 ads playing here in Canada and of course they are for multi-platform games. You would imagine that they would start showing Gears now that they finally have an exclusive game that some people will care about. They have this one stupid commercial where it shows a close up of someones face and then the camera rotates to the back of the persons head where there is a large hole. Within the hole is two people excited on a coach. There is a small television that you can barely see, which is the only thing in the commercial that actually shows the game. At least the PS3 commercial is a teaser.
What kind of console ad doesn't show the console!! I liked how he was staring at something awe inspiring but they could at least show what it is. How the hell are the uninformed going to be able to understand the beauty of that sexy black beast if it isn't visible! This ad could go places if it is one of those ads done in parts that collaborate when you watch them all and end up making total sense because of it.
Be patient I think it's leading up to something.
They did show what seem to be part of motostorm in the bottom left corner of the video, maybe that is just a taste of things to come.... hmmm know ....
Look at it again look at reflection in puddle!! Rob.
"PLAYSTATION 3 Holiday campaign launches with a series of 3 :15 second TV spots. Each TV spot hints to what is come for the bigger campaign that will launch on 11/21." These are already appearing similar to the UK 360 adverts.
I think SONY is trying to gear their commercials towards a wider audience. In all three commercials it shows different people and different games. A child, a teenager, and an adult couple. The commercials are mysterious and present the PS3 as a more mature experience. I also hope that the 21st day may bring on a price cut with their new 160gig console. Considering the 21st lands on a Friday which is exactly one week before the traditional start of the Christmas shopping season.
I like this, it's like the older PS2 ads. Plus, it's only a "teaser" for the big add campaign on the 21st November.
big ad campaign? did i miss something? where did you hear this?
"...Each TV spot hints to what is come for the bigger campaign that will launch on 11/21. "
You think the fanboys are bad here, check out the comments section on this video. It's hilarious.
Price cut? I do really like this advert. I love the music. oh and thanks to elimin8 for spotting the motorstorm bottom left.
I liked the reflection in the water of the flaming car rolling.. At first i figured it was a subtle add for motorstorm 2 But it was in the city..then i thought..resistance 2 maybe? Who know's...the commercial got my attention..and made me think. Looking forward to the other two.
Teaser for a new Twisted Metal, maybe?
The obvious choice is Motorstorm, but I do hope it is Twisted Metal. The music did seem a little odd.. almost like an ice cream truck... lol
the ice cream truck was obviously on fire
it reminded me of sky tv adverts.
It was set in the same world, but in a diner and it showed a reflection of Ratchet and Clank in the window. I'd really prefer an add that showcased a whole bunch of the games coming out this year.
I have seen a few of these on TV. I think showing fun games is probably a better decision, but I do like the atmosphere of this commercial. If i didn't already have a PS3, it would make me wonder what I was missing.
This is just a teaser. So I'm guessing those are to come 21st November.
I like it, so simple it keeps you interested if your not a PS3 owner it makes you rethink purchasing a PS3, if your already a PS3 owner it keeps you interested in what game that can be and also gives you a warm fuzzy feeling. Good Job Sony. Also have you been noticing multiplatform games having the Sony logo at the begining and end of they're TV Ads like Mirror's Edge, Smackdown vs Raw 09, and NFS undercover?
Almost every game I see only shows the Playstation 3 logo, regardless if it's multiplatform or not. Very good psychological strategy.
here in uk its the other way around with xbox at the beginning and end of ads
dumb commercial. anyone can do better. wtf is sony doing.
the reflections ads are here as a teaser for the real thing launching in late November/early December
i saw it on G4 the other day. i was like WTF is this crap. sony is really screwing up. 1. it didn't show the console 2. only showed the name 3. no price in the comercial 4. no games listed or shown *except motorstorm in the puddle. but what parent is going to notice that.* -nai-
wow im getting negatives yet again because i told the truth. i pointed out facts of the commercial theses are not opinions. you droids really are blind. LMFAO -nai-
It's ok, I just hope some people actually get it and don't stare at the kid and think "what the hell was that about?" I was watching the bouncy balls and paint ads for the BRAVIA TVs and thought "I wish Sony would put effort like that for Playstation 3 ads". I hope they keep cranking out these kinds of commercials though.
Nice ad Sony. Hopefully, this is leading up to a reveal of a big game for the PS3 (Team Ico: Believe. ZOE3: Believe.) or new footage of a game which has already been revealed (God of War III: Believe. MAG: Believe. Heavy Rain: Believe.)
Seriously you might as well just yell I'm down with PP, an you know me. I mean seriously get over yourself.
I especially liked the Ratchet & Clank one (Sony supports older titles like you wouldn't believe). I can't wait to see the full-force campaign starting on 11/21.
if you go into the PS store and dl that trailer with that crazy song, it sounds just like it.ill be buying that game on day 1!!
come on who doesnt like dawson's creek.. Im the vanderbeek..
