The ps3 new commercials are pretty damn sweet. On the PS blog, the VP of marketing says the commercials will be getting heavy rotation (and you should see it during the Colts-Patriots game on sunday....I'll definately look out for them).

Check out the commercials here:

I'm pretty sure 40GB and 80GB are both staying.

It's growth steams from the only outlet in which to play PS1 and Ps2 games fully. I can't say I use the backwards compat in my 250 gb ps3, but I do know when it comes down to buying one or the other "as a new consumer" I'd go for the 80gb, just to have the feature for use if I needed it sometime. <Ya know? The 40gb is a great way to obtain a blu-ray player, though. That's for sure.

ps3 needs more TV ads affiliated with actual gameplay demonstrations from games to help stick into the minds of people.I can`t stand a Wii add every 2 seconds on tv

follow the link and watch the new ads that started friday.

I think thats gonna stick pretty well.

Those new TV ads are spot on!

Showing the PS3 as a Swiss Army Knife electronic device is a smart move.
