Playstation using PR firms to promote Killzone 2 finally. Check out the email proof.
sony is fuccking stupid lets wait to market our biggest game this year until a couple of days before it releases i mean seriously...are they that damn broke that they cant put a decent marketing strategy i should of been seeing commercials 2 weeks ago on tv. ive seen one last night with the bullet traveling that doesnt exactly show any of the gameplay in the game if you have a ps3 and arent a game nerd and thats the only thing you see regarding killzone 2 then what reason did the commercial give you to buy it i love my ps3 but it would be pretty nice if sony could make more ppl in america want their damn system so i can have a couple of my friends buy it so i can play with flesh and blood friends i see on a weekly basis. rant over.
I am guessing you haven't seen the EU commercial then. That shows gameplay and it even says "Actual Gameplay Footage" that commercial could get any average Joe to drop some dough and buy Killzone 2.
You can still do well even if you market the game after it is released.
Its a waste of money. And seriously anyone who is even 1/4 a gamer knows about killzone 2... If you own a ps3 and dont know about it, chances are a commercial wouldnt make you buy it anyhow.. Sony is not stupid, you are. If you think you can do better than go for it. Otherwise shut up.
america (sorry i didnt clarify) and yes we watch tv and yes commercials are watched funny that fanboys are turning on another ps3 fan and sony advertising in america is horrible for this game
i saw the commercial in a bar like a week ago. old needless to say the intire club was silent as the commercial aired. if i could have gotten it on camera i could have had proff of the worlds largest KILLZOWN ever.
The email was about undisclosed content of killzone 2. It wasn't that bullet commercial you show, totally different.
i saying that they have been promoting the game for the longest
those commercials were hardly shown and weren't all that impressive anyway. If the gaming industry is anything like the movie industry, the marketing budget should be almost, if not equal, to what the production budget was. How else can you secure your return unless you make the people aware of the game?
It's Playstation not PlayStation. This email could be mocked up in 1 minute. Anyway I saw the 30 second UK advert during half-time between Inter and Man U!
PS3 commercials are all over veoh at certain times.
You gonna post that savory extra content for us?
I'm working on a few other articles right now but I will get to it soon.
I have seen quite a few Killzone 2 adverts, I was just watching the Man united - Inter Milan match on itv and saw a Killzone 2 advert at half time.
That was inevitable and I called it ages ago! Sony advertise at Champions League games, especially PlayStation advertising, as they're one of the principle sponsors, Killzone 2 was obvious for half time!
got to be honest as a 360 owner i ain't been that interested in the PS3 apart from the bluray drive as me and my girl friend are both film nutz. However if they had spent more on advertising i may have bought one by now but as it is the only game that would make me part with my cash is killzone 2,i know playstation has alot of great games but from where i'm standing i just see a company that has failed to back a great product properly,i think if sony had hyped some of the other AAA titles properly they would have sold many more consoles by now,either way next price drop they introduce will probably see me getting the console myself if only for KZ2 and the bluray.
why would sony need to advertise when the media advertises for free yeah ads are for people that dont go to the internet or read game news or are not subscribed to rss feeds ...but hey atleast they are trying to reach to the pople that dont know about the game
Thank god I went oout and bought a Xbox360 this weekend so I can play Killzone 2 when it comes out. It makes me happy I didn't buy a PS3 otherwise I wouldn't be able to play the Xbox exclusive Killzone 2. That is why Xbox360 rocks afterall.....1st Halo3...then Fable 2 ... now Killzone2... Can anyone beat Microsoft?!?!
You're not doing a very good job if you're trying to be sarcastic.
I kind of hope he is serious.
lol Exactly my thoughts... He pretty much failed at anything he was trying to do. ;)
I am so glad KZ2 is on xbox 360! The xbox controller rocks and graphics are far superior to PS3! Xbox 360 FTW! Cant wait for KZ2!
I agree too! I can't believe Giriath called me sarcastic. Thanks for sticking up for me.
im confused. :/ . Either hes a really stupid x360 fanboy. Or someone trying to imitate a 360 fanboy to make them look stupid.
I'd rather see the content than an e-mail...
Emails are mostly for people who frequent the internet and don't watch as much tv (Most of the new generation IMO). Email ads are a good addition to advertisment only if its a small part on a big scaled campaign.
No, the article seems to state they (PR company) have some new advertising material that they're offering to websites to post up. Id rather see what the new PR material is than the e-mail saying there is some.
ohh sorry.. I concentrated on your comment instead of the article. I agree
I love the bullet commercial the tv goes silent makes everyone look at the screen
I've seen it many times on various channels since last Thursday.
Offtopic : Bendtner is the worst player on Arsenal, he can't even shoot. :(
Im sorry is everyone turning into retards? our client is playstation?? what the f*ck? that would be like a PR for Mcdonalds saying our client is big mac.. and that i got an email from big mac.. seriously wtf?
Theres something about that email which smells fake to me. A company wouldn't call their client PlayStation it would be Sony or Sony Computer Entertainment.
I'm really disappointed with Sony when it comes to advertising its own games. They fail really hard in that area. I mean the games have so much potential to sell more than they do, but they would rather let their games be known by word of mouth. That is not enough Sony. Invest a bit more, or maybe even replace your current marketing team.
I saw a good amount of Killzone ads on TV already. Counted 3 while watching WWE RAW.
