Wow, some people are really thick and that's only because they want to.

This is an *internet* ad quite clearly geared at the *hardcore* crowd that has enough interest to be online reading about games and browsing for gaming related media. Why should it not pander to the core crowd only? They are the video's target audience and they *will* understand everything in that video.

If Sony wanted to get the casuals, they would send a different video to TV and metro stations.

Well if that's all they've got to fall back  on ("hey, there's a PlayStation logo on the screen, who cares if we talk about carpets, in-jokes and Jack Tretton being a boss for 60 seconds!") then I think it's just proving my point that it's really not a good advertisement for anyone but avid gamers like ourselves at all.

I wouldn't bother, CGI would never agree wit you Sony havn't done something spectacularly good

Your insults never change Seece, you need some new material.

It's interesting too, I agreed with his sentiments, so you're either a selective reader or have a hard time reading. Take your pick.

Well, you never change, so if it aint broke don't fix it would love you to prove me wrong one day.

You're both as supremely fucking irritating as each other - so stop ruining this thread with your boring bitching lest I reach for my flaming crossbow and try my luck...

"Listen up, I'm not coming back to the industry to sell some watered down, get-grandma-off-the-couch weak-sauce".

There are no words!

But the truth of the matter is that Sony is just losing themselves sales by insulting the expanded audience. I don't know about anyone else, but I've bought 5 copies of kinect adventures, and am willing to spend half my paycheck every week on these shitty games, because THEY ARE FUN for the 5 minutes a day I get to play them. I never get bored of those games, and if you ask me, SLOWNY needs to get with the times, because shitty commuter games are the future.

Who's he really insulting though? He's there to promote games, and pokes a little fun in the process. He didn't say the "competition" was weak, or sucks or "shitty", he just made a statement that's meant to spark a laugh. There wasn't even a hint that he was directing that at Kinect or the Wii specifically - so you'd be jumping to conclusions either way.

In the end, it's no worse than Sega vs Nintendo of the past. In fact, "Sega does what Nintendon't" was far worse than anything Kevin Butler said.

Edit: Having a second look, I now wonder if you were being sarcastic....?

I think I was pretty accurate, though as shown, I should've gone for "insulting the competition" on top of "insulting the audience". Just goes to show that I just don't see the little innuendos that people dream up.

And in fact, I think the opposite of these armchair marketing experts. I think an ad directly talking smack in abig way would be lots of laughs, and great advertising.

If you can't beat 'em, bash 'em.

2011 Sales...

PS3 - 5,979,454
Wii - 5,270,779
360 - 5,181,865

They're beatin' and bashin'

OT:
This thread has shown me just how serious videogames are.

I liked the video and didn't read too much into it. I watched them introduce a new marketting campaign and show off a load of awesome looking videogames. Cool.

CGI start the hype tran!



i dont really like the ad or KB the only one i liked was the pew pew one

its like the posts above me say it doesnt really make a non owner want one and took awhile to get to the meat of it, i dont like KB in the ads not personally but i dont think there should be a face in the ads, i dont like him b/c it doesnt really portray the hardcore ps3 gamers with his humor and casualness

i like the early PS3 ads from 06-07 and most all the ps1 and 2 ones, back then there where alot cause sony had alot of 3rd party exclusives

in the end its good that atleast these KB ads have the PRAY-STAY-SHON bite at the end, dont think they used that since ps1 days, i like that...oldschool

I don't really think the ad is aimed at the mainstream audience..as in, not for tv



Not at good as it does everything imo but super excited to see Kevin Butler back. Cant wait for the eventually to come solo TM ad with him
