Console Wars – The Blur Advert

StartGame: Why am I doing this short feature? Well, I’ve just seen the advert for Blur on PS3 and Xbox. It just shows me how low an IQ advertisers are now trying to appeal to.

At which point another racer called Blob gets out of his cart and tells him not to dream. In answer (Ted) tells him to shut up and punches him to the ground.

the commercial fails when it says,
"Race like a big boy! Rated E10+""

I thought it was a funny commercial. Frankly, all companies sort of poke fun at each other when they can and reading this article just sort of sounds like someone is hurt that someone else made fun of their game. That's advertising my man and it's like that in every industry, not just this one. The average person is just that...average. Overly complicated commercials don't work. Mac vs. PC, Dish vs. DirecTV, Verizon vs AT&T, Coke vs. Pepsi, Ford vs. Everyone... etc... that's just how it works... deal with it.

Its funny but it should just advertise itself, not diss another game.

I thought the commercial was funny. Sony should do the same with KZ3, and maybe bash Halo/Gears somehow?

Modnation racers to me is a childish game, I thought the commercial was funny taking jabs at Modnation racers.

What taking a jab at mario kart, it's been out what 3 years, it was taking jabs at Modnation racers. Blur and Modnation racers come out about the same time, damn you don't get that, I can see why your like you are now.

mario kart because its popular, and mod racers because they came out the same time. The guy looked like toad/mod nation guy.

Why is the writer so butt huret about it tho. Thats funny.
