Yeah, I'm not really digging the strip. But I still need to see one in person to be sure.

We read from top to bottom in this part of the world guys...

And for pete's sake please lose the Spider Man font!

Edit: Only one that even looks decent to me is COD3. MUA could look 1000x better considering the source material plus nobody puts Cap in a corner.

It's not going anywhere so I don't know why this is always brought up everytime a pic with that font on it is posted.

Actually, it looks more appropriate to me the way it is. But maybe that's just me. :/

i'd have to see the complete boxart on the case to have final judgement.
it could turn out pretty good, or pretty bad.

Just as bad/uncreative/lazy as the Wii packaging strip, yet somehow more annoying.

Maybe it's that the Playstation 3 name is so big.

The strip really should've been horizontal at the top of the box. But meh, I'll live with it.

That strip is on the front of the box? Looks like it'd be the spine part.

That's be really great if every single spine said nothing but "PLAYSTATION 3." Especially for people that, you know, actually put the games on a shelf or something.

I am hoping for clear black blu-ray cases.
that would actually be pretty fitting seeing the Final ps3 is actualy translucent.

A black blu-ray case is ok but the blue ones blow.
I doubt it will be blue though as the PS3 theme color is red and HD-DVD is red, my guess is black.

Because it's a big freaking deal that threatens to damage the brand name.

Honestly, it really is that bad.

There's way too much at stake to be stubborn. Almost everyone hates that font. They need to change it.

I actually think it'll look good, when it is actually placed in a Blu-Ray case. That is, provided they don't stick with that same tacky ass blue that they use for films. Dark blue or black Blu-Ray cases for PS3 games would be great.

You have to see them in person at a store to appreciate the size difference.

It's pretty much a fact that the font for Nuon is what killed the system.

I actually don't see what's so wrong with the font (or the box arts in general), but then again I've never seen the Spiderman movies.

Oh you might be right. I'm sure we'll be see many news stories pop up in the next few months indicating that the PS brandname was hurt by a font. I'm looking forward to the on street interviews.

Doesn't look bad, but the Spider-man font has to go, asap. Why are they using it to begin with? I'll gladly design a more fitting typeface for them. So would anyone with a modicrum of talent when it comes to such matters.

I prefer top strips rather than side ones. Funnily enough I never had a problem with side ones before.









The PS3 one just looks wrong somehow, too thin and doesn't seem to stand out enough on boxart like call of duty. Previous side strips were huge but reinforced the brand.

Maybe you need to take some classes then because there is no proof anywhere that the font will hurt the Playstation brand name. Please look outside of gaf for marketing advice / reactions.
