"This is not DS. This is Nintendo 3DS", Nintendo's advert proclaims, following a massive chunk of gameplay footage. And it's how you advertise the 3DS. 3DS Tribe look at the latest Nintendo UK 3DS advert, which rights many past marketing wrongs.
Great advert. However, once the Vita comes out, it is likely that the 3DS will be outdone in the 'Next Generation graphics' and 'state of the art multiplayer' sections. At that point, they must also mention the 3DS's unique features, such as the glasses-free 3D. They must also mention the exclusive heavy hitters such as Pokemon and Mario.
Could agree with you more, Rrobba. Couldn't agree with you more. Edit: though I just remembered the tabloid newspapers in the UK have ruined 3DS's 3D effect reputation with lies, so I imagine Nintendo will be avoiding marketing the 3D aspect as fiercely as they once were. Shame :(
''Edit: though I just remembered the tabloid newspapers in the UK have ruined 3DS's 3D effect reputation with lies'' Sadly true, now its the usual anti-Nintendo idiots that keep on repeating it, tho most probably havnt even tried the 3DS. Most ppl have never had a problem with the 3D im betting.
FCK YESSSSS thats more like it nintendo now lets get 2 alts and run it till xmas. I am glad they are learning and listening to comments from their fans. this makes me happy for wiiu adverts. hope we get some stateside goodness and not casual fridays again...
This is a good ad, even though fairly straightforward. It addresses the biggest problem amongst casual consumers, that being they see it as just another DS redesign. I have to explain to so many people at work (Gamestop) that even though it has DS in the name it's totally brand new hardware. And we even have some people still wasting their money on the DSi XL when the 3DS is going to match it's price in only days, and I try to tell people that but they just don't get it.
Wouldn't it be hillarious if they used a the advert for the PSV when it comes out and as soon as it says "Amazing Graphics" Kevin butler just just stops it and buts in with his funny speechers and then goes on to show an over the top epic of epicness advert of the PSV like PS3 montage advert. ...admit it, it's funny to take the mic sometimes :)
im gonna agree with you only cause it seems like ur supporting the vita over the 3ds, but for the most part, i dont understand pretty much of anything you said
Absolutely GOT to love those commercials. Kevin Butler for the win! xD
Nintendo really should start road tripping around the place and show people what the 3DS is all about. The biggest form of marketing Nintendo had with the DS and Wii was word of mouth, if Nintendo can start showing that the 3DS is different to the DS, people will start talking about it and eventually buy one.
They should bring back 'Powerfest.'
this system is gonna be obsolete when the vita comes out : D hahahahaha
Remember DS vs PSP...
History proves that the weaker handheld is always most popular.
To add to that, history has proven that the weakest system usually wins the console war. The top-5 best selling systems of all time.. PS2 DS GameBoy PS1 Wii ...all won(or in the case of the Wii are 'winning') their respective console wars and we all the weakest of the lot.
"Next-Gen Graphics?" The 3DS doesn't even do CURRENT-gen graphics. The best of what it has to offer that I have seen are graphics that are on-par or a little bit better than the Wii. I don't know who approved that commercial, but if Nintendo is that delusional they are in big trouble.
"Current-gen graphics" contain shaders. 3DS features shaders.
Lol i was thinking the same. Ive seen several games now and i dont know if i would even say the games are on par with Wii, DAMN close but not quite. Still great for a handheld though.
I'm pretty sure it means next generation handheld graphics - in which case this very much bodes true, depending on the developers making the games of course.
I agree, very good ad.
you know your hanheld is good when fanboys have to compare it to a console to belittle it
