I dont see how these ads are supposed to work tbh...

I am surprised they went back to it. I suppose it is fun and all, especially if you are a Sony "fan", male and a teenager. But I dont see it getting new customers in. Infact, it clearly doesnt. The last campaign may have got internet gamers talking and giggling a bit, but it clearly didnt improve sales.

But carry on..... doesnt offend me in any way and why should I care how sony want to spend their advertising dollars.

"Why should I care enough to tell you that it's bad advertising."

LOL YOU CARE SO F*CKING HARD. That is why you are so dislikable. Because unlike others.... unlike those others who overtly praise a system, and are called fanboys, you are a sneak who hides behind petty, non-aggressive words.

and I'm not even mad lol

I was kinda hoping they would get rid of KB and make commercials filled mainly gameplay. For example, the gow3 commercial would have been better if you showed Kratos going on a small journey towards a giant beast. While on his path, he kills several weaker enemies in a cinematic fashion. That could have been a much more convincing trailer IMO. And for the Uncharted 3 commercial, they could show a compacted version of the airplane trailer. That would be much more convincing then a KB commercial IMO.

I think they need both, a funny and light hearted commercial but also ones which showcase epic games.

And what's up with Seece, did Jack Tretton kill his family or something?

Now ship him over to the UK to make some ads for us. Our PS3 ads are lame

Yeah they are...

And I have missed KB, hopefully this should provide a little push in the US

Just curious, what are the ads like there?

...Really, really BAD.

What an annoying voice.

This isn't meant to attact any new gamers in the slightst. It's purpose is to inform the core gamers of KB's return to to 'VP of everything', while also introducing Sony's new motto. All that coupled with the fact that the length of the video exceeds 2 minutes, one can easily see that this isn't intended for casuals or any potential consumers. Anyone who thinks video was created with the purpose of increasing sales is simply wrong.

Just a video for entertainment. Nothing more.

You know...this ad did EXACTLY what it was supposed to do.

It got people talking about Sony.

Indeed. Problem is, it doesn't happen often enough in the right situations (or does get to the point efficiently). The new slogan may be their way of addressing that though.

It says a lot about Sony's marketing efforts this gen...for most parts, it lacks direction.

Much of that is do, in part, to the fact that the PS3 has seen so many marketing shifts. Couple that with all the things the system can do (and what areas Sony chooses to market) and it seems all over the place.

As I said though, the slogan should help correct some of the crucial setbacks.



                                                                                                                                            

A return to E3 with this new slogan is a necessity at this point

Just because I dont care doesnt mean I havent got an opinion.... I have an opinion on everything... its one of my many faults.

Nobody has answered my point... perhaps you could?
