A PlayStation blog commenter asked when the Killzone 2 ad will go live. Click the link below for the answer.
It's about time! A few weeks ago we were told "You'll be seeing KillZone 2 ads everywhere very soon" but the game launches next week and I haven't seen a single ad or commercial. I hope the commercials are better than Sony's recent ones. Knowing their advertising departament, the KZ2 commercial will be like this: A lady is walking down the street and a bus goes buy in the background with a Helghast inside. It's kinda neat but they won't show any gameplay and at the end it will say "Only on PlayStation 3" It'll be like the motorstorm commercial that had a kid walking down the street and on a building in the back you see a Dune Buggy. That commercial told you nothing about the game and didn't show you any gameplay. I didn't even see it on TV just on the PS Blog even though they said it was a TV commercial. I'd talk about the unintentionally hilarious US Resistance 2 commercial but I'm trying to pretend it never existed. As much as I hate MicroSoft, they do have damn good commercials. Hopefully there's lots of GOOD KillZone 2 ads! *Fingers Crossed*
as it was a similar but hilarious resistance 2 commercial for japan
Sony has done great things for gaming this gen, commercials aren't one of their pros. Lets take bets right now, KZ2's ad campaign is going to be little to nothing. Maybe some commercials on Adult Swim, but nothing remarkable. Sony will probably have some little girl crying in a warehouse with blood dripping from the skylights, then a mystical raptor will consume her energy with the force of the 9 suns of Klendathu, topped off with no Playstation logo/price/anything at the end. Not sure why they dont do it, but eh.. looking forward to killing most of you in KZ2 in a few days.
I think its gonna be the same ad as the euro ad.
I've seen almost no ads for PS3 gaming in the 2 years it's been around, unless I actually seek one (like a trailer of sorts)...but dang, I see MS spamming everywhere, 360 everything.
Jeff also said this a week or so ago. It was no shock to any regular PSB reader when the ads were going to be shown.
FINNALY Really ^^
I believe maybe there IS a method to PS3's madness...perhaps releasing the ads a week before the game is so the game is fresh in people's minds and they're not thinking about it for months and eventually lose the hype. This might work out positively if they run twice as many ads as one usually would, in all time slots. Lets hope they do this the right way...I wish i could see the commercial.
Society is doomed, people are now officially getting exited over a commercial =(. On topic: I hope KZ2 sells well, even thought i dont like the Ps3, Guerilla is a dutch developer, and i hope they become a huge player on the market, Capcom huge.
You know, 360 fanboys always say that Sony tries to over hype their games long before launch and these guys won't even put a commercial on a week before launch.
Hates the ps3 yet one of the first to visit and comment in this thread. Do you 'dislike' the PS3 because you don't think its a good piece of hardware, or because it was mean to you?
The PS3 raped his children! I mean, why would you not like the PS3? I could understand preferring another system, but hating a system, what's up with that? I don't want a 360 cause I have no time for one system, much less two. But to have a hate on for a piece of hardware, that's fanboyism at its best!
It fell on his foot at a Gamestop, the thing is heavy!
No, i dislike the ps3 because i think its boring, but i want a dutch developer to succeed.
...NEXT WEEK!!! ;-P ;-P ;-P
The PS3 is doomed! so is killzone 2! ;)
No, society is doomed, people are now officially getting exited over a commercial =(.
This is the game you have poured millions of dollars, and five years into. You know the game that people mocked and said would never be what you said it would be. Well, it is EXACTLY what you said it would be so get the ads out there and let people know that this game is EPIC on all fronts! I want this game to sell ten million copies by May or June and move about three million PS3's!! Hey you never know, it could happen! PSN: Frodo25
After E3 target trailer 2005 - "thoze graphicz won't be possible till teh PS4" After Sony achieves it! 2009 - "Those graphicz don't imprezz me and there'z nothing there teh 360 can't do!" According to delusional fanboys PS3 has PS4 graphics, but not impressive and any system can apparently do it!
Based on previous blog posts, most people assumed they were going to start showing commercials the week of the 15th. So it's nice to see that the rumor mill was right.
Why hallo thar young ones.
LOL what a retard
The Theory Of Xboxism is buy an Xbox, if it RROD on you buy another, if the second RROD on you buy another, if the 3rd Xbox RROD on you buy a forth, if that forth one RROD on you buy a 5th. So in the end its +5 to M$'s install base. That is The Theory Of Xboxism.
well said well said so it should be acknowledged by everyone about the Thory of xboxism
Sony has come up with a lot of good ads lately, unfortunately you have to already have a PS3 or good Youtube hunting skills to see them. I actually can't remember the last Sony related commercial I've actually seen on TV... I think it was 5 years ago when the PS2 and Xbox was still in a heated battle. This was before rumor of the XBox360 or PS3 even began. It is safe to say, that Sony's greatest failure this generation is not the console itself, nor the games, and no not even the price. But the lack of Advertising due in part to overestimating the power of "Word of Mouth" and Brand recognition.
umm .. this is news ?
the commercial should have a nice length to it. it should all be gameplay, show off some of the "big" moments of the game, and show the online component. in eh.....about 40 seconds.
I think Sony will have an onslaught of commercials after their price cut. Hopefully it will be cool as the "Do you want it" commercial.
i just hope they don`t use real people in the ads coz those s%ck and sony has done this quite enough lately(motorstorm2,resistance2 ,etc)
Well that's glad to here. This game needs to get the name out.
Sony needs to get it together. Why the F*CK do we have to "ask" for ads? This is something that should've been done a long time ago.
As a PS3 owner, I have to confess that Sony are rubbish at advertisng. Any company that rolls over while Microsoft pays to have an "Xbox 360" tag put at the end of trailers for games that are multiplatform (Tomb Raider & Prince of Persia to name but two!), giving the uniformed the impression that they're exclusives, must be doing something wrong.
