And nobody cares. Do you see anybody getting mad or cringing at other cars showing up in another company's commercials? Not in the US they dont. It's pretty common and has been for years now.

ouch. Sony will have software and services next gen. I think they will hold off on all current gen advertising and save it for a big splash with PS4

Those are Google Ads stuff right? Or is Sony targeting Neogaf?

Aren't the text ads the cheapest ads you can get on Google Ads?

This just goes to show you, a few words can go a looooong way.

In other news pot calls kettle black!

Seriously both of these consoles will continue to sell yoga and both will include motion controls. They both desperately want to cut into that wiifit market and be "entertainment machines" neither side is going to stop trying to scoop up casuals and the soccer mom market. Pretending otherwise is just dumb and takes a lot of sting out of that quote. I mean the PS3 has great gaming gems like wonderbook and motion fit.

As for the console wars, I don't choose sides I buy all of them. Why restrict my options when it comes to games I want more. I'm happy if all these consoles succeed. Less games and gaming platforms has never made me happy.

So these are just little text ads as one was a screen shot from a phone.

There arent any links and someone just posts it on GAF and it's suddenly news.

So basically people are getting bamboozled into a fake console war that doesnt exist.

Nah, Apple has a patent on the casual gaming market, and will sue any other company that's successful in that area.

(But seriously folks, all the casuals are playing games on their tablets and smartphones, and they aren't going to come back)

Hehe. That was good...

Sony Marketing is just sucking it hard lately. Although, they are doing well with the PS4 hype machine

They aren't going to come back because they never left because they were never here to begin with.

There's power in hash tags, too. That and a striking line can keep you in the Twitter conversation.

I haven't read through this thread so hopefully it didn't turn out like the last, but I'm fine with these ads. No harm in some playful jabs at the competitors. Can't believe its only three days away.

Edit: OMG the iOS ad killed me.

Hahah. This got me. Well done.

I'm really enjoying this minor ad campaign. It plays to the sentiments of elements of the hardcore gaming crowd well. Hopefully they keep it up and it's indicative of the initial direction for the PS4.

Text ads on Google- I'm sure these will reach about 0.00005% of the total populace. Good for fanboy fodder on forums as I doubt somebody who was waffling between systems would be swayed to a PS3 by this. Hey, but to each his own.

Threads like this one and others around the net have multiplied the effect by thousands of times. That's some shrewd ass marketing.
