Excellent advertisement.

Very good ad and about time it showed up. I've been seeing PS4 ads nonstop lately and, aside from the very bad ad that didn't talk anything about games, the other ones were pretty good.



i mostly liked it. the announcer was kind of annoying and didn't really add anything. a cut right after the "this is an invitation to a new generation" to a xbox logo and end right at the 1 minute mark and it would be quite perfect for TV.

As a former advertising student, I love video game ads. How are people voting this ad bad?

Xbox One ads are in the introduction/informative stage and this definitely does a very good job of that and makes it fun. 1 vote - good.

Well last time I looked people where discussing if Gerrard was the right choice for this ad over at NeoGaf, which of course the most important thing about this ad and needs to be seriously discussed. ;) Some people weren't happy with the choice, so you could attribute some of the downvotes to this, then there are of course the fans of different console manufacturers that could also be downvoting and of course there are trolls that just downvote for the heck of it.



I want to vote but I don't understand what the means "Ach du grüne Neune"? and google traductor either. (sorry for my bad English :s)

Great ad for sure.



Good ad that. They should have got a top, top player though instead of Gerrard.

It's a German phrase. Something like "Good grief!"



Started off awful. Football... startrek wanted to puke all over the fucking floor when I saw this. But it got better, the end of the add is cool with the dead rising & ryse stuff. Awful music though, doubt this add would catch on.

I'm not sure how the contracts of other players with other companies look like so maybe they can't get someone like Rooney or Ronaldo as long as they are in a contract with whatever company they advertises for? Just a theory, no clue.
