Those are not normal adverts =). The PS3 one is 4 minutes long, thats some expensive air time. I just picked the most entertaining ones in my opinion.Originally Posted by Major Tom
Also I have seen more ps3 commercials than wii commercials, but both do not rely heavily on them. The ps3 tends to have more billboards while the wii has magazine ads, though the wii doesnt need to advertise because the word of mouth advertising is already very strong.
I believe Sony will have a new marketing campaign once e3 07 is done with and its seeds start to grow. By seeds i mean its exclusives, Home and overall planned content that is still in developement.
PS: you will also notice that most nintendo commercials puts a focus on children. Which is why i get bored with them faster. Nintendos logic, and i think its good sort of, is that if you market towards children, they will grow up and stay a fan while marketing to the next wave of children. Look at the 80s commercials, they all target small kids, those kids grow up and stay with ninty while ninty continues grabbing the young ones. With the wii they are straying a bit from this, but not enough to give up on the kid advertising all together.
