    Eh, two touch sensitive panels, OK... clever. But what does that tell consumers who aren't aware of handheld gaming?
    This is exactly the type of ad that doesn't really help the Vita get sales. Show some upcoming or existing exclusive games, some console features, make the ad appeal to everyone and scream "look at me I'm a new handheld gaming system!". I mean, at least show what the touch panels can be used for.

    How not to sell a Vita and keep your handheld in last place. Sony fucking sucks at advertising.

    The ad is a tad creepy, but it's well-within the themes of Sony's adverts of the olden days. It reminds me of the old PlayStation ads, really...

    Let's be honest here, guys: They've certainly done worse.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    If anything, this is something of an improvement. Baby steps, and all that...

    Do Sony hire pretentious Art graduates to do their advertising or something?

    Also anyone who does Art at a degree level is a pretentious twat.

    Sony's ads have always been a little bit... quirky.

    Sony's advertising efforts for the PSP were pretty horrible too. Remember this?

    Sony has bizarre commercials?



    Whatever gave you that idea?
