Samsung Halo- er, phone commercial. Wow - the latest Samsung 4G commercial takes more than a few cues from Halo. …
Wow, how much of a rip off can you get?
Srry for posting this here, I know it would get lots of attention here on this thread. I know this is way way off topic but, does anyone have any info on starhawk/warhawk2? I was on YouTube surfing through vids and came across ign review of warhawk, it got me really interested in it and I relised i have no aircombat game on my collection. So I might get warhawk but I wanna know I lil more on starhawk/warhawk2. @shogun360: yeah srry bout that. On topic: if someone can't see this as a halo ripoff, then either they r blind or oblivious to gaming. Still a nice trailer.
Like you said... off topic.
aircombat game? Get Hawx 2 if you care so much. Starhawk hasn't been revealed officially yet.
Wait for Ace Combat next year, honestly. HAWX 2 isn't all that great.
Definitely get warhawk. Its one of the best ps3 games for online play
get il2 sturmovik great ww2 air combat.
Samsung will send a package to Redmond saying that they are sorry and make badges written "Halo Reach official FPS of South Korea" LOL!
Nice. I felt the same way about the other company that happened to. They kissed ass to dodge a lawsuit.
unless MS has something to do with this, lol complete rip off then of master cheif at least we know what he looks like now
That is just shameless.
Wow...just wow...wait for Bungie to knock on Samsung's door :P
Like Bungie would be the one to. They are cool guys, not Microsoft... That would be a huge publicity stunt that they honestly need right now...
definitely doesnt run like a spartan II...whoever was in that suit seemed uncomfortable when he was running...lmao
Yea, not the best quality.
thats what happens when you get your super soldier suit from the dollar store.
*runs to the dollar store*
That's not Master Chief! That's uh...that's Chief Masata! Yeah. He's uh a Japanese...um..space cop. Yeah! A sci-fi police man! That's the ticket!He fights space crime! In space!
stevie wonder even knew that was a master chief rip-off. LMAO @ the Green Ranger suggestion.
MSFT markets the shat out of Samsung LCDs oh well. I bet people don't know Samsung started off with their lcds based on 360 hardware when it comes to image needs-quality (contrast ratio etc) MSFT only uses Samsung for events on campus etc.
How does Microsoft market Samsung TVs? Because they are petty and don't want to use Bravias? I bet you have never seen a Blu Ray player in anything involving Microsoft have you? And and LCD Panel based off of an Xbox 360... check this out then. "In actuality, Toyota manufactures the Ferrari brand to compete with Ford's Lamborghini and GM's Porsche." Please list your proof and sources, don't just say "I bet people dont know" Looks like you don't.
Holy sh*t... I would have thought this WAS a Halo commercial the whole time since my sister changed the channel before it ended.
Samsung trying to ride the Halo Reach express - MS lawyers will be in contact with you shortly Samsung. What the hell was wrong with that Spartan when he was running.
Uh, he was actually RUNNING? XD
So that is a halo reach ripoff. Lawsuit incoming for samsung anyway! (at least i hope for their ass)
I smell a quick easy lawsuit. And why the heck was he digging in the dirt at the beginning?
Looking for his ship keys probably lol
Hahahah, omg that was funny
lol i watched that on tv today.. i was laughing i thought that was on of the halo live action commercial so i went " wth is that..microsoft couldnt do any better" then i saw it was from the galaxy s lol damn those ppl should get sued by microsoft
You guys are all assuming that Samsung and Microsoft didn't have an agreement about this commercial already? I don't think Samsung would be stupid enough to use a Spartan lookalike in their commercial without first consulting Microsoft. This ad was probably made this way on purpose because it will continue to remind people of Halo.
Yeah . Even the helmet resembles master chief . Im pretty sure Ms knows about this . I guess this is kinda like "product placement" eh ?
I seriously doubt it. Ms and halo were never mentioned. Also the cutoff suit and vehicles do have differences. Just not much.
Subliminal Messages are everywhere. You should watch derran brown on YouTube. He's a master mind in psychology and has many badass vids. Well he does a vid on subliminal mssgs (I think) and it's pretty cool. Anyone who reads this should consider it. Off topic again, srry.
Is that real?
its a bad ass vacuum
It's possible Samsung used a very similar copy of Master Chief as Samsung partnered up with MS to promote both their products. Samsung used Master Chief as an "on screen" image on their Series 6-9 model TVs last year.
It's not a ripoff, was payed for by M$. jesus. If that was just samsung doing their thing, they would be sued to high heaven.
If ms paid for it were is the part where they or halo is mentioned? Money well spent? Also why would they sponsor their competetion? Ms just announced the win7 phone.
Well... errmmm people notice it was an spartan from halo, from the first time i saw the commercial i knew it was from Halo so yeah...
Wow it was "payed" for by Microsoft? Can you link a source to that? To my understanding, and please do not correct me if I am wrong because it seems you honestly do not know any better, if I pay or endorse something, my name or brand would be not only included in the commercial in this case, but I would be credited as well. I am sure it goes deeper than simple minds care to understand because they see this as OMG ThE HalOZ wasSS Stolin! but Microsoft and Samsung obviously work together in software and hardware development with regards to phones at least. So I am sure there is more here than meets the eye.
Microsoft just copy and copy and copy...
Nice fav cosole and brand of tv samsung and ms are mates they hang at bbqs together getting another samy lcd love ur work.
lol yeah kratos may look like a few other characters(in certain aspects) but hey.. he's a complete badass, not like these space marines in pink suits you play as :P
Microsoft copy and copy.... and Pink suits.... apparently Samsung is now MS and Green means Pink.
Seriously you guys think that samsung made that commerical with fking halo in it. The ship firing the weapons looks like an X as in xbox360. win7 phone. na android all the way.
If Microsoft paid them, it would have said Halo some where in that commercial not just have people assume that its Halo.
