Taken from a Blockbuster store in the UK. It's a bold marketing approach, even by Sony's standards.
...to realize what was funny.
I don't think Sony had anything to do with that. But then again they have surprised me before. This IS sony we are talking about here.
str8 comedy how they continue to make marketing blunder after blunder.
Err, I hope you don't seriously think this was a blunder by Sony (you can never quite be too sure on these message boards nowadays). This is at a Blockbuster, so someone who works there just brought in a Halo 3 trailer and uploaded it onto the PS3.
I think Halo 3 is totally awesome and im gonna buy it
lol i doubt sony was involved in that
I dont think Sony was involved in that mix up.
Doubt this is official Sony marketing to be honest, Its probably some kid that works there did it and posted it on youtube and is now probably having a big circle jerk with his mates over the flamewar this will turn out to be.
Well we have seen Sony use PGR3 pics and try to push them as their own on several occasions, I am not sure Sony is above such marketing behavior.
If this was the other way around and MS was advertising MGS4 as their own, not one of you would question it, you would be going on how MS is sleazy and evil, why anyone thinks Sony is any better I fail to understand.
Sony hasn't once used the PGR3 to advertise their system, it was done by other magazines or companies.
you sound like a lunatic politician who lost an argument and is now resorting to wild conspiracy theories. =O
Wonder if it has anything to do with the employees wiring the video to this set, playing it and then conveniently recording it? Nahhh - couldn't be... o_0
Sony isn't responsible nor do they manage the advertisement of stores like Blockbuster. My local store has the same PS3 stand but its managed by the employees. What this video shows is that the TV set isn't connected to the actual machine but part of a network of TV's in the store.
In Blockbuster, they have several TV's hanging on the walls that play the same content simulatenously. Usually trailers for movies and game videos such as this.
will Sony Fanboys go? They just dropped another notch with this one.
Is anyone else getting the PS3 version :D
I wouldn't even bother getting the 360 version cause this game is SO over hyped, and it suck liquid brown juice right from my shiet pipe.
All those XBOTS that lie about them not being on their 15th 360, will soon be on their 30th 360 after this game drops. Such ZOMBIES those XTURDS are.....AAHHAAHHAHHAHA
I swear M$ created a bunch of ROBOTS with the Halo series....AHAHAHAHHA
Hi old Boss
how's MS these day's? Wait your not Bill Gates uuuhhhh
how did you do that you smell just like him?
xboxking YOU SUCK AT BEING FUNNY. STFU and DIE!
Sony has no killer app for the holidays so they're trying to trick consumers into thinking they can play Halo on PS3
Sony hasnt made them do that. its the employees there who decide what to show on that tv.
Why didnt they just show it on other tv's or why didnt they take those ps3 and playbeyond things out there. Blockbuster employees must be lil dum to show it on ps3 stand.
Depends how you define killer app.
To me the likes of GT5:prologue, Time Crisis4, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, heavenly Sword, Folklore, R&C: TOD, HAZE, UT3, wipeout HD etc.
Still these are just warm up games IMO (bloody good warm up games) until the likes of MGS, GT5, LBP, killzone2 and GTA4 hit next year
He knows this but doesn't want to admit it. He needs to maintain and uphold the flag "Sony=Satan"
employees being a little dumb? No. Employees that are gaming illiterate working at this store. You can even see that the Halo 3 games beside the PS3 are labed clearly with X360 across the top of them and probally an only on X-box 360 sticker or something on them.
No thanx you can keep your stupid gaylo, while we enjoy haze, ut3, uncharted,r&c e.t.c
I have my Xbox and I am not interested in any Halo game =s, I guess Playstation fans neither
listen carefully and you even hear the nerds sniggering in the background
Nerds are cool
It looks much better on the PS3, lol (I knew the textures were much sharper).
LOL, that would be a first.
I heard it runs at 60fps and is 1080p. Guess I have to trade in my 360.
Yeah, a game that runs [email protected]
Yeah, but it's actually upscaled :) (hmpf)
crossplatform coop mode anybody? :)
I personally am going with the Wii version.
me too. you get a motion sensor halo helmet with it. freakin awesome
I wish it did come out for the ps3 even though i know it never will
i would not have to buy a 360 but it looks like i will have to do without it.
that didn't make sense, if you have a 360 why are going to have to do without it?
then trade in your pos3 and get a 360 instead that way you can get games that are out now and don't have to wait 2,3 years for them to come out on the pos3 since Sony will lose the console war when halo 3 is released.
Hahahah...a one game cant bury a whole rival console, that has never happened and it wont happen in the future.
At best (for x0 users) halo3 will sell a lot and sell maybe some more of those xbox360's and that might slow the ps3 sales a bit. But it will never kill the ps3.
Lets just see what happens when the holiday season really starts and the games come pouring in...
or you can just simply get both....like me....and play Halo 3 and Warhawk whenever you like!!!! (BTW I don't have to wait for games for the PS3 since Warhawk, Heavenly Sword and Lair will keep me busy for a while)
Someone bought the PS3 for Halo because they saw that display.
Imagine. Even a Halo/PS3 bundle. And then finding out the damn DVD doesn't work. Would sue the company - :)
ummm we have a dvd in our ps3 at GameStop. And it shows games from all three consoles. so what oh no. its good advertising. plus if we put it into the 360 it would probably die and we would have to put it into the ps3 anyways.
ANYTHING about marketing. You would realize how dumb your comment is. Good advertising? So, you should be able to DL PS3 ads from the marketplace and 360 ads from PSN? Same difference.
It's an obvious confusion tactic, aimed at stupid people, because stupid people are already twice as likely to pay more for less (i.e. PS3)
Halo 3 --> Play B3yond
Killzone 2 --> Jump in
And what about PGR3 being advertised by Sony?
@sajj316 : I didnt read lots of details about the PGR3 ad, but the humor is shared in both of these articles lol.
PS Fans , How about buying a 360 to play the games you want? You say GT pwns PGR and Killzone 2 pwns Halo and you want them =/
never advertised by Sony. Get your facts straight. Just because it ended up on a mag ... doesn't mean its Sony approved advertising material.
@sajj get your facts straight they used a picture from PGR3 that was on the front page of Sony's website. Therefore, YES it was done by Sony.
edit:: lol thanks. Some dumbass told me I need to change it because I was gay for having a picture of two guys laying on top of each other...I was like Uhhhhhhhh?
@ PS360ROCKS....didnt even read your message...but I'll agree and it's all because of that avatar pic!!! :)
that this got approved. Maybe I should stream a Killzone 2 video to my 360, record it, upload to Youtube, and giggle over it.
I'm sure it got approved because it was FUNNY. Everyone knows that it's not going to be on the PS3, there is virtually no proof that it ever would. That, and MS has the rights to the name for years to come.
I personally thought the vid was hilarious and laugh at the fact that it's going to draw massive flame wars.
Looks like MS is desperate, really desperate. They just can't afford this title not to sell great and with so many 360's crapping out, they have no other choice than to release their major game on a reliable system...but I have a feeling this won't help them much as PS3 fans don't care about some power ranger mumbo jumbo
ur not really getting it, are you? its not coming out for the ps3... That's why its funny
Im sure some teenage clerk at Blockbuster did this to be funny so he can put it on Youtube. Either way funny post. They should put Heavenly Sword on a 360 Display now. ha ha ha
First PGR4 and now Halo 3. Yeah! We know that Playstation fans want Xbox 360 games. Just kidding, we all know it was Block Busters fault.
A DVD Demo disk on the PS3 showing Xbox360 footage.
That's interesting why?
as usual-all xbots jumped in to make silly comments. seems u have lot of spare time.
and you apparently read them all, what does that say for you?
considereding the fact that the video demo kiosks on the ps3 are of 2 things, Either a satalite uplink *what you find at wal-mart* or a dvd video comtemplation which u'll find in alot of stores.
In both cases its controled by sony the content thats shown....so maybe someone at sony snuck it in.
damm i want that television
O_O wait about the video ?? why are they showing a trailer from halo 2 ?
anyone who believes this is an idiot lol
move out guys nothing to see here the xbox360 got a rrod its gone to repairs r us.
they have to advertise somehow why not use a sonys hd tv...
i think that store just made a mistake.. but wow lol the store workers must be stupid to do that
there is nothing funny or wrong about this
At my work we put in a dvd with game trailers in the ps3 all the time. They havent updated the ps3 kiosks in sometime, so half the ps3 games dont even play on it. So we put in whatever dvd we want
Eh, maybe it was a mistake? People make mistakes sometimes, you know. It´s not some cheap trick by MS just because some guy in a store screwed up.
how is this "sonys plan"??
its not sony fault works at whatever place this was shot at dont understand how to read....and im sure rite at the end after the halo3 logo - it would say only on the 360 in big letters
Here in the states Sony sends koisk workers to game shops etc, wonder how long this unit has been running like this for Sony workers to supposedly miss it.
Do they think people are stupid over there?.
Now you xbots can't say the PS3 hasn't got a killer app. It really would be considered blasphemy and you would burn in the stake.
It's sound proof. As a retailer, why not trick the massively ignorant mass that is the halo fanbase. In Japan retailers pull this all the time. They will just put a popular game on a TV kiosk thats branded by another, usually uncompatable console. It gets people's attention then oh wow look PS3.
The fake PS3 thunder stealing launch is my favorite.
Halo 3 scandle has moved to 2nd over PGR4.
To me theres no such thing not knowing what games go on what console when its so easy to find out, considering these are some of the biggest games in gaming history theres no excuse. Strange set-up indeed if the unit is infact conected to all the other video.
How stupid do you have to be to actually sit here and believe that sony would run a halo 3 trailer on their system. I'm a supervisor at best buy and we have that same display. the employees at my store and that i've seen at other stores put whatever they want on those displays and the sony rep always comes in and takes them off. In case you didnt notice that blockbuster does run the same feed on all their systems so i'm sure there was a HS trailer running on the 360..just another xbox fan trying to make a statement but only made himself look stupid. I'm not tied to one system because i have them both because they're equally good..as of now. PS3 has a better lineup in the months to come and 360 needs to stop having so many FPS and look towards having a variety of games besides FPS and sports games. This video just shows you how alot of people will believe anything.
People actually believe Sony are behind this. I find that more funny than the actual video
