Watch the new Killzone 2 ad played at the Cinemas. It is played before the movies and during intermission. They are played in Sena cinemas in Iceland.
Advertising in Iceland? Well its a start I suppose
They need to release the Ballet of Deaf trailer in Australian cinemas. Heck they need to show it around the damn world.
The Ballet of Death trailer looks terrible! It makes the blood look fake, the character models follow a pre-rendered path, and they could have picked better orchestral music.
Im glad you guys new it was iceland because i had no idea what the hell I was looking @ besides it being kz2.
They should show this game at some spring block buster movie
It's over. Sony has now officially won this generation of console wars. To break through the glass ceiling and advertise in Icelandic movie theatres is something DAMN impressive. The logic here is undeniable. We have 1.1 million pre-orders in Europe, so we'll keep advertising in Europe instead of trying to reach out to shooter-happy, PS3-avoiding NA gamers to try and expand our market. BRILLIANT! It's over, pack it in 360, you've lost!
They really should do this in america.
This Ads is 10 times better than the other one. They should show this one instead.
...a SINGLE advertisement for Killzone 2 on tv. SONY really does suck at marketing their games. Even my grandmother knew the Gears 2 commmercial when she saw it. Her exact words were, "Is that Gears game part of some new army commercial because I don't think those boys were real."
Last time I checked, isn't Iceland in Europe? Which would include Iceland pre orders.. Or do we need to thank you for pointing out that you think Europe is just England? Not sure.. Would you suggest sony not advertise in Europe, or..What exactly are you trying to say? Travel more. I'd imagine sony has an entire globe to worry about advertising. EU seems to have more pre-orders than the USA.. theres 1 commercial you have to run for the USA.. there are many regions in the EU that you have to run em for.. Why hate on icelandic movies.. when those folks probably pre-ordered the game?
of their better trailers. I would like to see it here in America. Simple yet intense. Sells the game very well...
That was decent. It's a step up from LBP and Resistance 2 commercials. I ended up seeing commercials for Dead Space before movies back when it was released in 2008 and that was great to see! The twinkle twinkle little star AD they had and it was really well done.
I do not believe they have brains. I love my ps3 but seriously who the F%^@ came up with those launch commercials?! All they have to do to advertise Killzone 2 is play the first seconds of the intro then show a bunch of explosions. That's it.
They need to do this in USA
they need to actually show something. i havent seen a single thing for KZ2 in the US at ALL. sony is in the failbot for getting the word out there on good games, no wonder all their AAA games dont sell well. im starting to hate sony a bit w/ all this bullshit. its as if they want to fail miserably this gen.
Guys you are to negative. What makes you think it won't be available in the US. Because, uhm, it is in English ? With subtitles ? Can only be a good sign, they cover Iceland. I mean, it won't be the ONLY country they play that ad.
If Sony is going to advertise Killzone 2 at a Movie Theater, they should advertise it before the showing of Watchmen, because that's the biggest movie coming out just a week after KZ2. I've seen Sony PS3 advertisements in a Theater before, and a KZ2 ad before a big blockbuster movie like Watchmen would be a very smart idea if Sony follows through with it. I don't know when the heck Sony is going to start TV Ad's for KZ2 in the U.S., but I'm guessing it'll be during the week that KZ2 releases.
the only game i ever saw playing an add on theaters was halo 2, but is good to know that sony is marketing killzone 2, it will help them a lot in sales
Ive seen loads of ps3 ads in the cinema, Motorstorm PC, Resistance 2, Singstar (lol), Buzz. Wish they would advertise good games lol, like MGS4 or Uncharted instead of Buzz and Singstar!! But guess they are trying to lure the casual audience.
Relax everybody, this is just one report of a cinema trailer, UK films come out on a Thursday, so they may well start in cinemas this week
It's just not the biggest market. Sony needs to step up the marketing. Don't be so sensitive.
I agree they should advertise this with the Release of Watchmen! I hope this "huge" ad campaign they were talking about kicks in soon, the game releases like next week!!
and the results were amazing. I was hoping that they did that for MGS4 but they didn't. some one really needs to cue these guys in on how to market. MS has a best marketing for HD consoles right now. i applaud them. but Sony need to take note and do the same for alot of big games. KZ2 is definately deserving of this
Hell, I saw a Gears 2 commercial in the cinema 2 weeks ago when I went to see Valkyrie.
Why is everyone so defensive. A game doesn't have to sell 10,000,000 units at launch day. The game will be available even after launch and the world of mouth will help. Also what is wrong with putting out adds after the game drops? For people who say SOny exclusives don't sell well. Almost all of them sell in the millions, and continue to sell, which is considered very successful in this business, especially a new ip on a system that is higher price and with a lower install base by 8M. I do agree they would do great to drop some ads in the us, since we really love shooters and we are real suckers for massive hype.
Il Drink To That my Friend
Sony can release the commercials after the game drops to continue the buzz. With all the reviews and word of mouth already going on...they do not necessarily need the commercials right now....when the pace begins to slow, then they can reach those other souls who are somewhat clueless. Have we not recognized that Sony does not care about these growth spurts...they are about longevity..and consistency.
Iceland? Why hasent sony declared bankruptcy yet? Isnt it illegal withholding such important info from the investors?
You do realise that Sony is worth tens of billions of dollars? This ain't Sega...
So was Enron one day before they filed for bankruptcy. So what your saying is that they should sell themselves to make some money?
Chrisy, get a life!!! You are not stop trolling in the PS3 threads.
Why do these people bother with their lame statements is beyond me. I just want to enjoy all the killzone 2 news with other gaming enthusiast :)
Iceland? They're really breaking out into the world aren't they? Good lord, Sony.
I'm sure you will see this ad in other countries to.
Nice to see Sony are starting there marketing campaign. Nice ad too.
This ad should hit theater world wide, or least in major country and city! Last I remember Iceland as a country is broke...
What??? they have intermissions in the movies in Iceland?
that is what I was wondering. But even then...isn't intermission usually the place where people leave, go stretch, and get food. Hopefully they mean right before the show starts back up.
chrisy shut up you retard no wonder you have 2 bubbles you talk out of your ass, jealous because this game isnt on your radiator sorry xbox
radiator xbox.. xD
game releases in 11 days and I have yet to see 1 commercial for it? How effin dumb can the marketing dept @ SCEA possibly be??? A chimp could do a better job than they are doing!!!!
Where's the £2million for advertising actually going as this ad in Iceland is actually the very first eveidence I've seen of them advertising Killzone2 at all? I'm in England and so far this year, and I've been counting, I've seen 1 Motorstom PR and 1 R2 ad on TV. Sometomes I wonder what they think makes an ad campaign, I really do as Halo3 with a far bigger fanbase than KZ2 even before Halo3 came out had MS advertising it more than a month before release on virtually every channel daily. I'm not saying they should oversaturate like that but come on it's nearly on us and there's been exactly no ads at all for it? Stunning lack of understanding of the market.
Considering Resistance 2 was advertised in cinema's in the UK this is no surprise
.....This game is like a new IP since many never played the original..
this is what should be showed on t.v. not the ten second crap.
It's better than the ten second ad.
I live in Iceland and I'm playing Killzone 2 right now! ;)
Sony needs to advertise in movie theaters. Here in the US, I can't count how many times I saw a Gears of War 2 ad last fall. It was in just about every hot action movie I saw including Quantum of Solace.
It was a litlle diffirent , but it was f***ing nice
nice!! but did i just see Febuary 25th?
that's when it's out in Iceland
