The marketing slogan for PlayStation 3 has been revealed, yet nobody seems to have noticed! Therefore, Kikizo "reveals" the tagline with a fetching video to prove it.
the graphics where cool, i especially liked the bit when the ps3 split up and became the slogan...but the slogan sounds crappy, i mean whats wrong with welcome change.
Mods, please ban Cyberoach. 3 posts in 3 minutes, all of them flames.
Can't watch the video at work, but doesn't sound bad. Like the article says, this is probably just the slogan for Europe anyway.
i don't like the font used for the slogan. that font style does not suggest videogames or electronic media.
makes me think of candy or something... not videogames.
a weak PR move, this is typical sony tactics. they sell you a idea, a dream, and deliver a overpriced, downgraded reality.
PS3 is not living, PS3 is lying.
"Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
How long? Not long, cause what you reap is what you sow"
"This is living" sounds like a slogan for a housing development. :)
I own a magazine publishing company that specializes in real estate. The current portal site for my magazines is: www.itsaboutliving.com
Maybe I should consider trademark and passing off infringemnets against them. Just kidding SONY dont injunct me, we can work out a deal.
they need to fire whoever came up with that.
Although my Hateraid for the PS3 has subsided due to the fact SOny is doing everything to get the massive flood of negative reaction they are getting right now. This slogan is not going to last long or catch on. I like the PS2 slogans they used but THIS IS LIVING. Come on Sony, the cracks are turning into holes. And the Spiderman logo is also mostly dumb it would have been cooler IMHO if they put the big PS3 red logo on top of it. in silver. I can't believe how bad they are slamming the PS3 on gamefaqs.com user polls and in Game Informer, as well as some Euro mags I have read.
This is living!?? No it's bloody not.
That may be living to the rich Sony folk, but for me, living is working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week to afford that bloody console.
Which I'm not doing, because I'm not going to work myself to death to buy a console that is slightly superior to the X360.
At least MS's slogon "Jump In" was simple, small and catchy.
Another fly in the PS3 ointment.
LOLOLOLOLOL, that's horrible
This is living....wow, they'll probably change it after they get all the feedback over the web.
That was awful.
Geez, Sony...show some games, highlight the blu-ray drive, something! You're so confident about the product that you show nothing about it?
You got your 360 back?
Ok I'm having a hard time with this slogan. They had some really catchy slogans with the PS2 ... and why won't those work for the PS3.. I hope this won't be the US Slogan campaign for it. I mean I'm still getting a PS3 but this slogan seems .... well ... far fetched
Its not the US slogan. Im pretty sure thats either Europes Slogan, or just Germanys slogan, but it has nuthing to do with North Americas slogan, which i think is still "Welcome Change"
i mean ur a friend to me an all on Xbox Live, but just because other people, like me take interest in other games like PS3 and Wii, doesnt mean we have to listen to you and not buy the things we want to buy. If you cant afford it and thats the reason why your flaming it, then get outta here, cause people, like me have the money to buy other things, non-xbox related. And yea, Xbox 360 is good, for 10 months until it dies on you and you have to pay 130 bucks to get it fixed. So 500 + 130 = 630. 20 bucks less than the PS3. Just another way M$ is making money. They dont help you out with a problem, then they want your money, and then they take a month to fix a problem. Thats quality service.
Lol, I hope you know that happens with all consoles, its inevitable. At least Microsoft admits their mistakes. The Wii and PS3 will both have some problems, because liek 5% (i dont know the exact estimates) of all consoles will be defective. Also, I have enough money for them all too, im just not interested in the PS3. Most PS3 games will also be on Xbox 360, you at least have to admit that. The only exceptions are games Sony is making themselves. (And they may be wonderful games, but as I said already, im just not interested)
i know all systems have failures, but when you have a Xbox and PS2, and youve had it for 3 yrs.+ and then you get a 360 and 10months later it dies on you, yet still yo0ur PS2 and Xbox work fine, what does that tell you about the people producing these machines. Xbox 360 was a rushed project and they had to release it before PS3 and Wii, or else no one would buy it. But still if my old systems still outlast my new ones, then there is something wrong with that. dont you think. And as for the other thing, there are not that many 360-PS3 titles up yet. there maybe be about 12 or so, and 6 of them are sports games. as far as exclusive games for PS3, they are looking pretty sweet. Warhawk, Resistance, Heavenly Sword, MGS4(dont like it, but still good). all 360 had for launch was COD2, Condemned and PGR3.
If your PS2 is only 3+ years and not 5+ then your PS2 is a newer model. I'd hope it works better than the launch PS2s because we all know how bad those were. The 360 you got had to of been a launch one if you had it for ten months. Of course a launch console may have troubles. That is a chance you take when you get any console right away no matter who made it. The PS3 will have problems at launch as well (probably more due to the amount of new/beta hardware and anyone that argues that has no idea about technology).
Yes! This is exactly the focus for PS3! You can LIVE off the PS3, what with it's built in washing machine dryer, cheese grater, kitchen sink, 8 bit graphics, and a way to cure cancer! This is chang3, chang3 in my pocket that is.
" im just not interested in the PS3"
another quote from the same post
"(And they may be wonderful games, but as I said already, im just not interested) "
but he is posting on a PS3 article.
Irony at its best.
I bet you know all about the PS3, the cell, the RSX, the games, the Premium vs. core.
But "your not interested". Right.
waya mamamia, that slogan is a magnifico! Ita feels me witha joy, just like when i hold hands witha Luigi. The slogan is debatable whether it isa better than 'Welcoma Chang3' but it sure does have an easy and confidento feel to it.
Well, by any waya you look at it, it is a better than mya slogan, "Wii on me"
Whaaat, itsa the best we coulda do
That is funny as hell. Imagine if it was their actual slogan, we'd have a field day of flaming it, just like when nintendo announced Wii as their name. LOL
hahahah, mario that's some funny stuff
Keep talking like that, your my champ for the day.
Oh man, you slay me!
Please if you gonna Advertise for us please include all of the features. especially the Cappichino Machine,ID Maker,Pachinko Machine,Typewriter and Treadmill.
Geez, with all the crap they put in, they used 802.11g instead of 802.11n? And they expect it to last 10 years?
I have only one reaction to this slogan
"This is G@Y"
This is Living? I love that show! Our real slogan is Welcome cahnge because trust me there is going to be a lot, and i mean a lot, of "c a h n g e".
They should have stuck with "Play Beyond." I liked the posters and advertisements they used for it. Maybe we'll still get that in the US.
but i am both a Xbox and PS fanboy and ive got to say, posting comments on this site and listening to ppl b!tch abuot stuff is weird. Another thing that is weird is that Xbox fanboys keep posting comments on ps3 related news, but if you were to go to the Xbox 360 page, there is hardley anyone posting comments on the topics, yet you come to the ps3's page, and you get topics with like 400 comments and 600 comments and everyone talking in the PS3 comments, but how bout Xbox 360. If these Xbox fanboys think Xbox 360 is so great, which it is, and they think PS3 sucks, which it doesnt, then why are they still on the PS3 related news topics and not their precious Xbox 360 topics. I just find it really weird, they call every PS3 related news stupid (whether bad or good), and say how Xbox 360 kicks ass, yet i dont see them postng comments on Xbox 360 side of things or even playing their Xbox 360's( which i think they dont even have one). So far thelandofsand has been the only one ive seen that likes Xbox 360, hates PS3 but at least plays his Xbox 360 and loves it. But Xbox ppl heres some advice. If you hate PS3, why are you here telling us what to do when we've already made up our minds on what we want to get? and for all those imposters like Kaz Hirai and Ken Kutaragi and Phil Harrison why dont you invest in a Xbox 360 that burns, cooks, bakes, fries, and does absoultely everything that ur PS3 grill does in the Kitchen and more. Seriously if u think PS3 is the ultimate kitchen appliance you should think about investing in a better kitchen appliance in the XBox 360.
What we have been trying to figure out for a LOOOONNG time HyperBear. Notice the 360 news, just a few comments, hardly any PS3 fan going in there, because we really dont care. But the PS3 news, its filled with vile hatred 360 fans. Just shows you, how insecure they are about their system.
The reason they come here is because they are jealous, just look at the Real Deal, every PS3 topic good or bad he is there and he goes way of topic bashing the PS3, he's so sure of himself, but he forgets 2 things 1 he's such a fanboy no doubt about it and 2 his points are so stupid he's always going off topic; and he's so stupid he does not realise that. i mean the guy thinks he's the man with the answers, more elike a commen MS fanboy!
because the smell of sh!t draws the flies ...
The reason you get 360 people in here is because we're interested in gaming and gaming consoles. It's interesting to see what Sony is doing in response to the competition.
The reason we don't see you on 360 boards is because you are die-hard loyal fanboys. But be honest, some of you come over to troll and gloat.
Die hard Sony fans, be honest: did you like the ad?
x360 just IS uninteresting.
Games that have jsut little updated look isn't enough for us. We got games more next-gen in gameplay wise than games on x360 are now.
Besides, PS2 still delivers quality games that keeps us busy.
"Play Beyond" is a perfect slogan (especially with the crazy photos they put up at E3, including the one that seemed to take a swipe at Halo). I hope to god this one's fake; looks more at home in an IKEA commercial.
Heck Even "Jump in" sounds better. If that's living then that is sad!!!! Sony do better than this.
"Play our game system" is a better slogan. In fact, "Don't play our game system" is still even better due to the possible reverse psyhcology.
Worst next-gen slogan?
Oh wait, I forget, "Bask in the Wii". Heh.
"Jump in" is is it so much better than the slogan "this is living". The ps3 is the only console that can afford to have a slogan like that with Blu ray games and movies, 1080p video conferencing, networking and more it's the complete package right out the box. Can you picture Micrsoft using that slogan "This is living but you just have to buy an external HD-DVD player but it's just for movies."
Why do I need to buy an external hd-dvd player for my game console when it's just for movies?
Why do I need 1080p video conferencing for my gaming console? The answer is...I don't, what I need is a gaming console, and that's what I bought.
And I liked the 360 ad campaign, especially the massive water balloon fight ad. I think the ps3 ad sucks, I think the slogan is awful.
You might just want a gaming console but Sony is not going to just advertising for gaming but for the Blu Ray and for the ps3 being more like a computer. So you're a little pissed because all you want is a gaming console and Sony decided to add features that you think are unimportant but you have to accept the fact that there is more to the ps3 then gaming and Sony is not going to advertise on just gaming alone hence the slogan "this is living." Besides I think people actually want more than just a gaming console the more features the better.
Just like "sonyfanboys" won't touch anything other then thier console, they hardly interested in the news.(just babbling this is or looks better on PS3 in every sentence) Just ask JIN and his sidekicks.
Opinions are like @assholes , everyone's got one. IF you can't stand the heat then get out the kitchen.
Now a sonyfanboy will say this is the bestest Slogan ever..which is expected. Just look at Mr Mario...I find it amusing.
None PS3 said it's great slogan, it's quite bad. Too long and not game realated. "Play Beyond" now, that's a slogan.
"Jump In", that's bad one too. Not game related, jump in where?? Or they want niggas play X360, white man can't jump.
THey should change the Sony line into
IT IS DYING!
And your wallet and wife too when you buy it!
How much was your computer when you got it?
a few minutes ago we recieved the breaking news that "360 fanboys dont think that PS3 slogan is any good", although the news seems very insignificant
