Here's a new Heavenly Sword CG commercial which was recently released on television as a promo for the game. Video after the jump.
Nariko looks prettier very time I see her. Seems like beauty is no longer in the eyes of the beholder, but in the eyes of the PS3. =)
this is an awesome commercial, ive seen it a couple times already
although the ending is a little dull
but this is what I want MS to do...instead of these sh!tty Mountain Dew commercials make some real ones@!
the Halo 2 commercials were amazing...like that
ur right dude. halo 2 commercials were amazing. nice to see sony doing commercials again too, maybe they getting their sh!t back together
wow, are they showing it on TV?
could become a PS3 seller like that
When I first saw this commercial, I was simply blown away.
Me too! I was like,"OMG!! A PS3 game that isn't a 6 month old, sloppy port of an Xbox 360 game!!"
face it.. this game is dumb.
That looked great
i saw it yesterday on FOX. WOW!!! i would like c it over an over again. fantastic job sony!! I wonder how GOW 3 will look like on my PS3. unimaginable!!!!
i already got $30 on it=]
EDIT:is that actual gameplay?
is it me or do she look 10x pretier?
will her hair really flow like that?
Its not gameplay its CG, the clues in the story title lol
Her hair will not flow like that in the final game but the CGI on the main character (read face) seems only perhaps one generation on from the PS3 retail version.
The in-game rendered cut-scenes are still very good indeed with some of the best lip-sync/acting I have personally seen to this date.
Considering the PS3 has had very few exclusive and hardware-specific games during its infancy (as so many consoles suffer from), its not surprising to have some upset early adopters (especially when other hardware options have been out for at least a year).
So it is not surprising that all the attention is on the few titles released with expectations running fever-pitch on their ability to succeed, redeem and justify your luxury purchase.
When you consider the first three have ratings ranging 'ok' to 'wow', it is still doing pretty well for a kid that will continue to keep promising to get consumers there.
First time i saw that ocmmercial was during the Movie DeathSentence at the movie theature, it looked great on the BIG screen.
Man... I would have loved to see it on the big screen with the surround sound they have.
Meus and Nariko have a date on Friday night. I'll post a video of our time together ;)
On EB the game date was moved up to Wednesday.
Short but sweet. I'll buy a PS3 this fall to play this game. (Gotta get a good TV first though)
really ? u will. thats cool. if u hook it up to internet, then look me up
PSN ID : HeroMan911
Very cool commercial. Reminds me of the fight sequences in the movie 300.
Wow when she is diving reminds me of a Phoenix.... Beautiful
meh the UK advert is far better IMO - http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It actually bigs up the ps3 aswell as showing the game off
Lol That's my room. You can see me in the reflection of the TV
sorry but the commercial bored me, sony should have focused more on the story
@tfur: true there isn't much you can say in 15 seconds and it's definitly nowhere near the worse commercial I have ever seen. I just was hoping for something a little more epic
I think thats called ADD... The clip was only 15 seconds...
just teasin... ;)
She did seem to be wearing a bit more makeup than normal?
for sure GOW3 will look like that,GOW# game will rock it will be the god of games but until then HS is awsome,i hope it will be shipped in my country to buy it because is like a mini gow
if the game ever looked like that in-game!! Haha.
Heavenly Sword 4 maybe, on the Playstation IV.
the ingame graphics and animations is very very close to that CG. Sony has delivered in this department when they said PS3 will take games to another level of realism. HS is an example, KZ2 will be the ultimate example, can't wait for KZ2.
for her hair or the last shot of the face
Heavenly Sword is a beautiful game, so why didnt SONY show real ingame footage instead of a fake CG movie? It seems to me SONY wants to Fool the Public into thinking this is real game footage when its not.
while I agree I would rather see in-game graphics in commercials then CGI.
What is a developer/publisher to do, everyone uses CGI or video to give their commercial an edge. Without CGI a game might be overlooked and the general public will spend their money on another game. Sorry but it seems CGI is here to stay.
If you havent noticed,thats all MS does is show cg for their games.i rarely ever see them show real gameplay for a game besides SKATE and forza.So i think you got it twisted on who trying to fool people to think its real gameplay.
The YouTube link provided above shows you that Sony is atleast showing in-game footage of the game in Europe. And it looks just as impressive in some parts
atmosphere...it reeks of it...beautiful game...
This is great news with only 2 days left to go.
I am buying it!! :)
finally 1 good ps3 ad after all those bioshock ads >.> (bio is an awsome game, but the # of ads are a bit too much -.-)
Finally cant wait for thursday, I am buying this game first thing in the morning, no gym for me, just play.
Sony needs to keep doing commercials like this; advertising has always been their forte, and they definitely need to keep upping the ante. Hopefully they put out commercials like this for every big title coming out this holiday season.
Shame they said the game is under 10 hours long. Sucks to play $60.00 for a game I can beat in about 3 days.
than the thousand or so other aspects of videogames, right?
Length is just as important. You want to pay $60.00 to play a game for only 3 days? I want my money's worth, which requires more than 3 days of excitment. The game could be great but if its over soon how great was it then?
and that is NOT a long game. But it stuck me, along with millions of other gamers, because it had amazing gameplay and a riveting story. Thankfully, you represent the minority of gamers who simply want to play hundreds of hours, regardless of how good the game is.
Hell, even Shadow of the Colossus was fairly short, and I'm sure you're going to dock that game for length as well. Or maybe Devil May Cry for its two and a half hour engagement?
I can't wait for this game, only a few more days!
When did I say that I want to play a game that's a hundred hours regardless of how good it is? Did you hear me say that? I want a game that is more than 10 hours. Of course I want a good that is fun to play. Who in the world wants a game that sucks but takes a long time to beat? Obviously the game has to be good. And let's be realistic, Metal Gear Solid stuck in our heads because it had a great storyline, but the gameplay wassn't really all that great. Most of the people I've talked to basically said they play the game just to see the cut scenes.
HS is a more than 10 hour game. Some people played it quicker than that.
I'm sure I'll get about 50 hours out of it.
Dam why couldn't they have come out with this on the PSN store so I could download this for my PS3, that looks amazing.
Now I have to try to find it in a format that can download so I can convert it and put it on my PS3.
UK advert is far better actually shows the ingame footage, still a nice advert though ;)
Day 1 for me!
...can we stop with the CG please, it's very misleading to some.
Do the CG commercials of Bioshock mislead you?
The Gears Commercial was Cg and not part of the game.
Bioshock commercial Cg and not part of the game.
Forza 2 CG
Halo 3 CG Commercial and not even close to what the real game looks like.
and Heavenly Sword but now someone has a problem with it. You Must BE A FANBOY
Check out the Kia game play video from Heavenly Sword. reminds me of gears of war a little bit.
