Ten of the Best Ever Console Commercials

Megabits of Gaming writes: "Atari Jaguar, PlayStation 3, C64, CD32... here are some of the adverts that were designed to make you rush down to the store and grab the latest must have gadget. They may look a little dated and watching them now, it's debatable whether any of them would have had the desired effect but they all have their own place in gaming history. They certainly don't make them like this anymore..."

It is amazing how many adverts have come out for computer gaming. They are on tv as much as adverts for films at the cinema - I guess it goes someway to show how popular gaming has become. That advert for the Jaguar is brilliant!!

You don't see as many for the actual consoles anymore though - it's all about individual games: GTA IV, Black Ops etc...

The PSP one was hilarious, his pants being wet was more funny than the guy asking to play with it next.

The Xbox ballistic vagina advert cracks me up every time.

I love gaming adverts – they always have great soundtracks and look so glossy and high tech.

However, is it just me or do the Nintendo ads always seem a bit of let down – I am sure they could do so much more than what they do – I mean how much must they have spent on getting various celebrities in the Wii adverts, which to me came across as a little on the corny side.

Those Ant & Dec ones are shockingly bad!

Ibwib2777d ago

They don't even really try to sell it as a gaming system anymore, do they, its more a sort of social lubricant/fitness machine. They'd rather it was thought of as a combination of Twister and a Multigym.

LovelyLara2777d ago

lol i really do not think there could ever be a time when you could associate the word bad with the glorious Ant n (delightful) Dec. :-)

Ibwib2777d ago

Jesus. Mum, is that you?

assmonkey2777d ago

LOL this article is awesome! i wish more of theses were on N4G.

The Atari Jaguar one was the best!

Bojeeva2777d ago

You should have included that Game Gear commercial where the guy hits himself in the head with a dead squirrel. That's a classic.

i liked that one for the ps3 with the black tar thing that changed shape and warhawks flying through

Siesser2776d ago

Ahh yes, Click Click Boom.

"Ladies and Gentlemen - good evening..."

outwar60102776d ago

lol that advert made the ps3 feel sooo cool for me

FamilyGuy2776d ago

Agreed, I had a PS3 by the time those ads started running but they just made it seem more awesome to have one. Those ads hit around the same time as the Kevin Butler ones started showing up. Good times for sony.
