Sony Europe has begun a new wave of advertisements in the UK, which specifically mention the PS3 or PlayStation formats only.
good to see sony advertising
Yeh I saw this the other day. I hope Sony keeps at it.
Straight from microsoft's book :)
i noticed. Unfortunately they picked crap games - Harry Potter and Transformers are the ones i have seen. Advertise InFAMOUS...
Now that is some good advertising. Tie in the Playstation name with popular movies and other things and people will finally come to realize what their missing this generation by not owning a Playstation console.
i dont no why they are advertising these sh!t games before infamous etc i guess these games appeal to the public more because of there reputation
@above - I guess they are trying to get a different audience i.e. not looking for the hardcore, looking for the middle audience between casual and hardcore. I dunno, maybe?
Now do this in the U.S Sony! Very nice.
Why are they advertising the sh!t games you ask? I remember seeing the original Transformers game at no.1 for a while in GAME. Like it or not, there are more casual gamers out there and they buy CRAP! Remember, good sales do not always equate good games.
But no advertising for Ghostbusters, despite the fact they are actually publishing this game in Europe. A bit strange since they are advertising other third-party movie games. Nevertheless, well done SCEE because it's about time we started seeing some ads.
They have PlayStation controllers and they only have the PlayStation formats at the end of the commercial.
Yuck! PS2 looking graphics on the PS3.
Yeah, even in the US, Sony is putting up commercials with EA Sports that have people beating famous athletes at their own respected games.
It will be interesting to see how Sony advertise GT5. It will easily sell millions on reputation and its fanbase alone, but could go on to sell even more with proper marketing.
Agree with 1.2. It's exactly like Microsoft buying the ad rights to Resident Evil 5 and numerous other games, except Sony did it for some crap Harry Potter game. How about a commercial saying your console has built-in WiFi? Free online? You know, the actual advantages of the PS3. Might be a bit too innovative for Sony's "find out for yourself" ad department.
i seen this advertised. i like that colourful "ribbon"
Sony doesn't need to advertise since they have there loyal fanbase that will sell anything for them.
your comment fails almost as much as your English.
don't you mean buy anything from them?
Ever asked yourself why Sony has a loyal fanbase... Let's see. Games, and lot's of them... Free online Build quality Doesn't bash the competition quite as much Doesn't lie as much Doesn't overhype as much And that's it the most difinitive comment of this generation And that's it the most difinitive comment of this generation And that's it the most difinitive comment of this generation And that's it the most difinitive comment of this generation And that's it the most difinitive comment of this generation And that's it the most difinitive comment of this generation And that's it the most difinitive comment of this generation And that's it the most difinitive comment of this generation
every post ive read from him is some stupidass comment. he doesnt bring anything useful to any article wheres the banhammer? time to smash some beans
http://www.youtube.com/watc... It was amazing how much confidence he has for since this generation still has a lot to go.
It's "their", not there. And another thing, that was unnecessary.
why are you in here? are you mad? got no new exclusives to play?
Thank god your so ignorant otherwise Microsoft would never have gotten away with RRoD... bu what's that they gave you a three year warranty... which they attempted to take away by changing RRoD to E74 and there's still people like you praising them over Sony who last I checked didn't charge for online to pay for a faulty console And what are these two games? Last I checked three good exclusives have came out thus far which are Killzone 2(looks far better than any 360 game), inFAMOUS(Which is FAR more fun than GTA IV) and MLB 09... and we still have Uncharted 2 which looks outstanding and plays great. Oh but what's that Gears which is closer to a car simulator than anything else because you weight like a ton and the gun is pretty weak compared to Uncharted where you are nimble. Oh and the horror in Uncharted 1 is better than the poorly explained night/scary level in Gears 2 which ironically also has inferior Graphics. Uncharted 2 won game of the show at E3 btw... Oh and let's not forget Demons Soul (allready released in Japan) EyePet which looks amazing without the smoke and mirror of Milo L.A Noire is rumoured for 2009 M.A.G Hey look 256 players on a FREE service White Night Chronicles ModNationRacers R&C So please remind me what do you have? So please go back to being ignorant because to be honest you'd be surprised to learn I have a 360 AND enjoy owning it... but I am not afraid to admit that the games on the PS3 look superior which isn't a surprised seeing as Sony has 20 studios and Microsoft has ermm 3 so yeah.
I'm here because this is news for everyone, and I'm stating my opinion like the rest of you. Edit mrv: Stop whining with that pathetic list of games. I would take Too human over any title you posted there minus R&C. "Sony has 20 studios and Microsoft has ermm 3" And who cares if Sony has 20 lol. 360 is still pumping out more games year after year so what's your point. Sony is blowing money, and if not for bluray, and ps2 they would be in deep some stuff.
once again what has the xbox had in 2009 so far? hows gears 2 from last year? online good? you aint got no damn games thats why halo 3 is being played to death because you have no others lol stop fooling yourself
So what you'd rather 10 mediocore games which you'll play once or 5 games Like... Resistance, Killzone 2, inFAMOUS, Uncharted 2 and Heavy Rain which you'll reply many times and have more fun play. Too Human better than Uncharted 2, well I haven't played either but for me Uncharted 1 was one of the better games this generation again your entitled to your opinion but many will disagree with you. I will play the games I either like the look of or like the demo and I certainly wouldn't have it any other way, fun for me might not be fun for you... probably because I don't mind which platform it's on while you can only have fun on 360 only or 360 AND PC only games. Have fun convincing yourself the 360 is better I just hope you never wake up to look in the mirror and realise how stupid you've been. A good game is a good game regardless of platform... just enjoy it.
You using the term "troll" somehow just seems a little odd to me. Any idea why that is?
articles pertaining to europe should be prefaced as such. As an American, I feel I should be able to quickly filter out the world's gaming news and my own.
i doubt you will get that since this is a free site where anyone can post any gaming related news without your guide lines to think about
As an American, I don't see the problem with world gaming news at all. It's a wide world of gaming and we aren't the only country out there. But I don't see much wrong with the option if you want to sequester yourself.
So now it becomes news if Sony starts advertising? This is getting pretty sad! BTW instead of advertising their POS3, they start advertising bad software/games like Harry Potter and Transformers? NICE! Sell it on focussing on the bad games, not the good exclusive ones and make it pointed on a target group thats totally not interested in a BlURayplayer! Harry Potter people are into Wii's you know...
Halo condom, Halo sanitary napkin....
you know you think hardcore gamers would have even a tiny bit of marketing knowledge cause they surrourned by it every day but then again mart isnt a hardcore gamer hes just some kid running around n4g bashing sony at every chance he gets....looks like i gave mart alot more credit then i should of this is what i gave him -----------X------------------ ----------------- and this is what he deserves X----------------------------- --------------
Well Mart, if you could use your brain you would know that just the name of Transformers and Harry Potter is miles bigger than for example KZ2. We here at N4G know what games to look for but a 12 year old girl doesn't. What do you think is more pleasing for her, Harry Potter or Killzone 2?
Its too late to save Sony now... It may be the best console in some peoples opinion and the advertising may help it slightly... But the wii and 360 have established their dominance this gen and have been advertising well since the start
sony isn't just one console...
why dont you just give it a rest as long as sony continue to support there hardware/software, so will i and many others
"too late"? Imo, Sony sold more PS3 than Xbox 360 since launch. (dont forget xbox 360 has a year headstart) I think PS3 is doing fine. After 9 years, PS2 is doing very very well. Sony has other products, PSP, PS2 and non gaming products TV, Radio etc etc.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA....HAHA You should go into stand-up
You realize the PSP costs the same as the 360 right? PSP is outselling 360 by the tens of thousands. PS3 is only behind 360 sales a fraction. With PSP sales alone Sony beats Microsoft console wise, the PS3 is just the icing on the cake. The cake of win.
doing commercial wow
Keep it up Sony.
Good for Sony.
get a fuking puppy, at least he will lick you back. EDIT: ultimolu, dont unblock people to say smart azz thing to them than block them again so they cant respond. How did it sound like i was going to cry, because i dont have microsofts penis hanging out of my mouth like half of you ps3 fanboys. THEIR A COMPANY THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO ADVERTISE!!!! ITS THEIR JOB. they shouldn't get congradulated for it.
You sound like you're about to cry ZEEBO. So Microsoft doesn't do the same exact thing? In the end, all companies want your money. >:P
Go cry me a f*cking river ZEEBO. Wah, wah, I blocked you. Oh noes! I have every right to do that because you're not a reasonable person. You just like to flame and offer nothing remotely useful to gaming. I have no tolerance for people like that.
the next set of ads after this was shown had the wii one. Where the nunchuck is the wand and your broom. For cheaper than the PS3 one. Which will kids want?
GOOD. I'm always so confused when EVERY multiplatform commercial I see ONLY has the 360 logo at the end.
Sony's first tv game ad for the PS3 as a game console... 3yrs later :D
Here, have a cracker. Good boy!
LOL the ad said "graphics may differ by console" meaning they look better on the 360 and Wii :D
Epic fail Don't you realize that you worship a heater which has 2002 tecnologhy? (DVD) You bots get turned on by that? Go figure
Yeah well I saw an EA Sports commercial in Canada that had a huge focus on MAdden 10. However, It only mentioned PS3 in big bold letters at the end. :P
No it meant the graphics will look different on the PS2 and PSP you dumb ignorant fart. And what, you want it to look better on the 360 because you really love Harry potter games because they're your best franchise right? Just go and look at your exclusive 360 games because it's the whole point of why you own a 360 and not a PS3 because you obviously want games that are exclusive to your console but instead you love multiplat games better which don't even use the PS3's nor the 360's hardware to it's limits. Exclusive games are made using the 1 particular console to it's limits and so far Sony has won the Exclusives field. PS3Exclusives>>360Exclu sives Multiplat/360>>Multipla t/PS3...BUT! thats because the 360's easier to develop on.
....I see your running low
I've seen these ads on TV too and pretty often. I always thought this was a good strategy in that Microsoft advertise multi-plat games alongside their console.
Theyre advertising ri8bbish games though... Why not advertise their own first party games? Or good multiplats?
Here in France, the Harry Potter ad shows a Wii-only game, with similar (to not say identical) footage, plus kids playing with the Wiimote "OMG you saw mom how it's funny?". I guess SCEE should have been called SCEUK.
SCUK? Nah, SCEE are just as crap, if not worse, in the UK -they're just crap full stop. Funny when EU has been WAY more supportive of the PS3 that SCEE treat us like idiots, lag behind every other Sony territory in trms of releases(and also Home spaces despite apparently being in control of Home overall!)and tell us bare faced lies about things like the video store EVER arriving here! Then again I cn't get all te features of Live in the UK either-no Netflix among other things so I guess that MS and Sony both feel that Europe doesn't want or cannot figure out downloading or steaming the odd film! As for the ads-it's a ddgy MS tactic but als fair I guess but they'd be better adding more, and better multis and exclusives while most importantly explaining why, despite the price, the PS3 offers most for your money. Most laymen don't realise you don't pay for PSN in the UK. I've told a couple of people looking at consoles(in Asda of all places!)that no, it isn't like Live in that you do not have an extra fee. On one occasion the fella in the electronics dept didn't seem to know himself-or he just wanted to sell a 360 instead. POint is Sony need to allow people the chance to hear what they get in the box with PS3 as, often, they don't know or worse, think there's the same as with a 360. So tahhing a HP game as if it's exclusive is a very small step.
Yea iv seen these adverts but they are advertising two sh!t games they should really advertise killzone, inFamous etc more but atleast its a step in the right direction
I've seen an Madden NFL 10 commercial with the PS3 logo and the robotic Playstation voice after it. I was like what the hell? That's new.
No one else has seen it yet?
PS3 advertising is better than RRODBOX's lame advertising.
Come on SONY give and make some more ads for the PS3, not just Harry Potter games.
About time. The second more people realize just how great the PS3 is, and how powerful & diverse the hardware is, it'll start selling like hotcakes.
While slow to start has recently picked up.I have seen numerous Infamous commercials lately(here in Adanac) on TSN of all places.I am of the opinion that while advertising has it's place,it can also be detrimental unless used sparingly.I see one more Mcdonald's,Grey Goose or Dos Equis commercial and I am having my cable disconnected and retreating into the hills. No advertisement convinced me to purchase a PS3 or little else for that matter,but everyone is different. Advertise Sony but exercise moderation and use the flagship titles. As for Beans,how can anyone be expected to respect you're opinion when you exhibit none whatsoever for theirs.Looking for the truth but afraid to find it I suspect. @ninjamonkey-I concur =)
Saw the same thing on an NCAA 2010 commerical in the US
