Just be grateful you're not seeing the UK ads - they're awful, really really bad.

"A stick!"....made me chuckle, could be a lot worse.

I haven't liked any of the new PS3 ads, to be brutally honest. It only does everything they say as the new tagline for the ps3. Well, what about all the stuff they'd since cut from the initial ps3 launch, hmm? If it only did everything, and they wanted that to be true, they (Sony) would have been adding features, NOT removing them. Personally, I just feel like Sony is mocking the very audience it's trying to get in touch with.

Everyone that hasn't bought a ps3 already, for one reason or another. For those who couldn't afford one until they'd already neutered BC, it's just another smack in the face. If I wasn't fortunate enough to have one working one here, I would be firing off another angry letter at Sony for these advertisements.

I agree, it makes you chuckle on the inside cause we all know thats the excuse we always get. "Back in my day we played with our parents shotgun for entertainment."

Which is bad news for the Wii lol. Remember their old campaign. But yeah these PS3 commercials are really, really well done. Kevin Butler is perfect for them......Especially considering their old ones.

That probably is what Europeans are complaining about, because its been taken down due to ToU violation. I'd complain too if I was European :P. Especially with the new internet laws.

Is there ever a time when SONY is not doing something wrong? C'mon man.

samuraiguns
But just because they are doing something right, doesn't mean they're except from being called out when they're doing something that stands out as wrong. And if anything, people who have a valid (even if you don't necessarily agree with them) reason to gripe about a product or policy should be heard. Because for every one person that steps out and says it, there may be many more who feel the same way, but haven't worked up the nerve to go out on a limb and say so. And then nothing gets done to improve things. If it weren't for people complaining loud and clear, the legendary 60GB units would still have craptastic AA problems and glitches in its BC. We wouldn't have trophies, or even half the updates that fixed and added things between 1.* and now. And despite Sony's public statement, there seems to be enough rumbling within with all the reports that suggest they're at least considering ways to remedy the BC issue.

Here in the Netherlands I rarely even see a PS3 commercial at all, everything has 'xbox' in front of it. Xbox tv commercials, 'this program was sponsored by Xbox 360', 'go to our website to win an awesome xbox the future of gaming blahblah', stores here have xboxes on the cover of their folders, huge advertisements on the front of their webstores,. o_O

On topic, I voted for 'meh'.
