Obviously is Fake.

An official and real Commercial or something related with a Company like Sony, in the Ad is a ''must'' to display an official Trademark or something to ''validate'' the Video like the real previous ads from Sony.

And the most weird thing in the end of those Ads is not the scene ''Sony Make.Believe'' or ''it only does everything''

someone said it had something to do with the sonystyle cc. If you sign up for that, you get $100 credit, which you can use towards the ps3.

I knew it as well, they wouldn't prematurely announce a new console, I actually liked the ad though. But I'm sure they're going to be pushing their 3-D/Move strategy pretty hard.

Crusade3056d ago

Wow, it seemed pretty legit for an ad that's fake.

The_Firestarter3056d ago

It looked pretty legit, for the most part.

Honestly, why do people waste their time putting so much effort into something like this? What's there to gain? Video hits? I don't get the point of collaborating with multiple people JUST to make a fake commercial.

Can somebody enlighten me?

tudors3056d ago

because it shows what they are capable of, the people who made this AD are currently getting recognition, they will surely get work from this.

but it was definitely well done. It had great production values for a fake.

You know, there are proto-ads out there that are made by agencies in order to propose a marketing plan, promote their ideas, and show off their capabilities as ad producers. It's not from Sony, but it's probably from a perfectly valid advertising firm.

That said, if this was a real prototype proposal, then maybe Sony is courting agencies over PS4 advertising. Probably not to be shown at this year's E3, but for some time in the not too distant future, somewhere in time and space (TGS?).

hire whoever did make it then, i totally thought it was a professional advertisement.
