PS.Blog: It Only Does 256 Players

Peter Dille on US Playstation.Blog writes:

"Next Tuesday, Zipper Interactive will be unleashing the industry's first and only 256 online multiplayer shooter game, MAG. We know there's tremendous appetite for this game as you've downloaded more than a million MAG beta clients worldwide during the last open Beta period.

So, as a special treat to MAG fans, we'd like to give you an exclusive sneak peak of the TV commercial airing this weekend, here. The commercial depicts a job applicant asking Kevin Butler whether his MAG platoon leadership qualifies as management experience."

Glad to see that Kevin Butler hasn't lost his charm.

Edit: I like how he's fondling the muffins for no particular reason at the start of the clip. Terrifically offbeat humor. Wonder what they'll do for GOW?

That was pretty good. "son of a.."

blahgasm3218d ago

That look he gave was priceless.

Bungie3218d ago

That really made me LOL
So whats the job?
VP FPS relations
AHHH Son Of A...........MAG

I really wish we had commercials like this in the UK.
All our stuff is pretty serious, we need a bit of comedy
Comedy sells

And a VERY informative ad too. Hopefully this captures the attention of average gamers who may not have heard about the game.

I may have my doubts about MAG but it appeals to a large amount of fans and Sony is really showing its unique features.

Also, the Sony "Make.Believe" logo at the end was nice too.

Great commercial. Butler delivers once again and it's still as funny as the first time.

The Great Melon3218d ago

I love these newer commercials. They are both informative and funny. Glad Sony figured out how to market the Ps3 finally.

Blaze9293218d ago

hilarious commercial. Just hope we'll actually...ya know, SEE IT ON TV this time around. Or maybe I'm just watching the wrong channels :/

But yeah seriously, great commercial.

duplissi3218d ago

that was the best ad ever......

Godmars2903218d ago

Him skull-f***ing that kid after ripping his head off of course.

Jamegohanssj53218d ago

Most of the time I only watch Gilmore Girls and WWE wrestling programming and they always hoar them out on the WWE programming.

I don't understand why Bungie has disagrees.


webeblazing3218d ago

comedy, sex, and crazy action always sells in US its ez to market over here. if u can get half on the hook most will follow manly with younger people (monkey see monkey do)

I saw it 2x on TNT last night during BBall, 3x on ESPN today and once on FOX this morning.
I am sure they are going to run it this weekend during the NFL playoffs.

I love these commercials. Even my wife digs them and she isn't a gamer. Sony is definitely stepping their marketing game up in NA. I can't wait to see what they do with a God of War 3 commercial.

Microsoft Xbox 3603217d ago

Gotta agree with Blaze. I hardly see these brilliant commercials on TV.

Marceles3217d ago

watch ESPN, they play them all the time on there :P

D4RkNIKON3217d ago

I LOVE these commercials. They are so funny and they are so descriptive of the services and games on the PS3. They need to market the PSmotion controller EXACTLY like this commercial for LBP..

nefertis3217d ago

aaronisbla3217d ago
