I find this interesting. Is this Sony first ever mainstream advert? I can't recall ever seeing an advert like this from Sony to be honest; they're usually funny or arty. This is just direct and I would imagine the slot for this being around 7pm to 8pm.

SCEE actually does this kind of ads a lot.

Show me one. I live in the UK and I've never ever seen an advert with this tome before.

edit: Not quite, Abriael. I know what you are saying and this is difficult to explain. This advert isn't attempting to hit people between the eyes or dazzle them, it's designed to seep into their subconscious without them being aware of it. The smooth even tones of the guys voice, the lift music, the slow uncomplicated images. This is designed for people who would watch Eastenders, Big Brother or Coronation Street. That's what I mean by mainstream.

This is just an advert like every other Sony advert that plays on UK television. I don't know where you've come to the conclusion they don't have PS4 adverts in the UK. They're on all the time.

I'm also not entirely sure why an advert needs to have a dedicated article written about it though? It's not like it contains any important, new or even relevant information...

Abriael is a bit right

There is a lot of #4 the players ads over here on tv in Ireland

Last of Us is the game I know got a heavy ammount of attention from tv ads, I would see it atleast 5 times between shows

Cool ad. Kinda funny that they showed Advanced Warfare towards the end when discussing shareplay, seeing as that game is blocked.

GameDev11364d ago


I thought it was only blocked when it newly came out

TheJacksonRGN1364d ago

Actually I just tested it out with a friend and he got the blocked scene message. You still can't shareplay.

Just the other day I helped my friend solve a puzzle in Resident Evil through Shareplay.
Sony has done a real good job with all the streaming capabilities on PS4.

Summons751364d ago

And that is the reason why share play is a terrible idea.... Solve it for yourself, use your brain!

I like share play to check out a gameplay I'm not sure of but using it to cheat because you can't think is ridiculous.

remixx1161364d ago

Wow dude he was just giving an example, if the guy couldn't solve it then he probably would have googled it but went the shareplay route.

MasterCornholio1364d ago

Well shareplay is optional you know......

Even if it wasn't there people could always use the internet for solutions to puzzles.

mkis0071364d ago

these wonderful people above me pretty much hit the nail on the head; alternative solutions for cheating are available, this one is at least social.

the_dark_one1364d ago (Edited 1364d ago )

we are not forced to use it. if his friend wanted help to solve the puzzle he asked and got help, its almost like couldnt solve the puzzle and check it on youtube or a read a guide. "I like share play to check out a gameplay" well again you could check a video on youtube

Summons751364d ago

@ all who replied

Maybe cheating wasn't the right word but using share play to progress in a game is just like using a walkthrough video or read, it degrades the industry. If you can't progress you need to think harder or get better at a game not give up and have someone else help you. Play a different game that is your skill level if you can't play and need constant hand holding, this is the reason why are always complaining about games having too much hand holding in games because young gamers today can't figure anything out for themselves and have others do the work for them.

I'm playing the whole game with a friend on share play.
We take turns, and work thinhs out together. It feels proper old skool like when I was young and had mates round completing games on the PS2. IT'S made the game so much more enjoyable for me!

MegaRay1364d ago

So they rather advertising plus and share play than advertising Vita?
Whatever, hopefully bamco keep localizing their games

Travis37081364d ago
