What is it with the marketing departments of console manufacturers nowadays. I remember when I was a kid watching companies like Sega advertising games for their consoles with actual FOOTAGE! You could see how cool the game looked and wanted to go out and buy it.

Nowadays we seem to have entered some kind of weird abstract world where advertising companies are trying to be as clever as possible. Can't they at least show us, erm, you know ... some games ... being played ... by people? So we can empathise and think, "Ah yes that's what I could be doing."

That goes for BOTH the 360 and the PS3. I love and own them both. But try asking your non-gaming friends and family members what "Jump In" and "This is Living" means and see what they say.

Can't companies just give people what they want namely how a game plays and how it looks? At least Nintendo have mostly gone about the right way recently with the Wii and DS adverts I just wish Sony and Microsoft would follow suit so that more people can see how cool their games are!

I love it...this isn't the only marketting campaign by Sony I might ad. There's another exclusive European one talking about the capabilities and showing the games...but I can't help but think they are missing an ad like this.

I was actually thinking that each actor represented the "avatars" of gaming we might choose to play with...

The writer/director should make a movie. I would love feature film this way.
