    "We are just a couple of weeks away from the launch of PlayStation 5 and we can’t wait for you to experience the next generation of interactive entertainment. The launch of each new PlayStation console is a special moment in time. Today, we want to give you a first look at our new global launch spot."


    "For launch, our goal has always been to create a spot that feels epic and iconic; a spot that truly celebrates our desire to push the boundaries of what is possible and evokes the excitement that you will have through the unique experiences made possible with PlayStation 5.

    The theme of the spot is centered around the idea of exploration. There is a desire in all of us to explore and discover new possibilities, whether it’s in gaming, or in our everyday lives. We all want to go to places we’ve never been, see what’s never been seen. We tell the story by paying homage to explorers of the past who stood on the threshold of the unknown and pushed past their limits to achieve the extraordinary.

    Finally, we needed an iconic voice to narrate this unique spot, we went with our new strategic creative partner – Travis Scott. We hope you enjoy, and we look forward to continuing to explore new and exciting worlds with you through PlayStation 5."

    This trailer reminds me why I'm a gamer - the games..

    It needs to be mentioned that while Sony uploaded this, Microsoft epically put out the reveal for the XBOX fridge :rofl2:

    Don't care - don't have the money for that, and...what are the launch and near-launch games again?

    I'll wait until the PS5 Slim or Pro or whatever, thank you, like I've always done with Sony consoles (PS2 slim, PS3 slim, PS4 Pro).

    I agree on that. Usually I wouldn't care too much about the looks of a console, but the size and glossiness of the ps5 just makes me wanna wait for the inevitable slim version.

    It's not even about the size and looks, for me; it's just that a hardware revision will likely fix issues the base version has (for example, overheating or outdated hardware), along with far more games being available at that time.

    I don't quite have the same mindset with Nintendo systems since there's rarely any hardware revisions for home consoles (the Wii U never got one, the GameCube never got one, and the Wii...the less said about the Wii and the Wii Mini and GameCube-less Wiis the better), and for portable consoles like the DSi and 3DS I was all-in.
    With the Switch...only launch-model Switches can be homebrewed, so "waiting for a hardware revision" (in this case Mariko, or potential Switch XL or New Nintendo Switch XL or whatevs) is actually extremely detrimental.

    I suppose the launch PS5 will be more likely to have vulnerabilities than any hardware revision, but I'm not quite concerned about that.

    OK first of all...
    Let me save you the time. The actual play station 5 is at 0:54 to 1:00 (thats 6 sec. Ad)
    By the way, nothing about rest of the video....just some random space clips.

    As for the ad.....
    Companies today really like to play with emotions, and if you dont pay atention/are not aware to that, you will just feel artificial emotions bind to that product that you're watching.
    We don't actually buy products based on what we feel but rather on what is "forced to feel"..welll actually those ARE our feelings, we feel them but the main difference is that they are purposefully and artificially hightened to be unnaturally higher and even triggered if there are none.

    These "marketing experts" or whatever are so clever dhese days that its scary, and the most scary part is that they will MAKE people buy anything if they can just influence the ffelings with music, visuals, phrases etc...

    I rarely, almost never see an honest and down to earth comercial that just shows product without artificially making people feel certain way.
    That's just disgusting to me. I mean i did not wanted to react or feel anything, i just wanted to watch the comercial, but as son as it started i felt emotions and i dont know why atm....but i actually know why.
    Lol sometimes i found that best way to watch something is without at least sound. Sound has the greatest impact on emotions.

    I found some really stupid movies that feel so sad and emotional, but when you mute the volume you realize how stupid it actually is.
    Or when you turn mute some (if not most) comedy shows like big bang theory or whatever, you realize (at least i did) how
    NOT funny it is..its actually cringey and stupit. Most of the time i facepalmed my self....but not like haha facepalm, but cringey, stupid face-palm.

    Anyway, i know this has not so much to do with the content of a commercial, the console it self, but it is kinda related, and thats what i noticed tbh, and i san say the same for this commercial also.

    Im not saying PS5 is shit, im just saying that they make it bigger than it is by playing with the emotions and influencing ppl that way....that's disgusting imo.

    Marketing strategy my ass! People have no shame these days and these things are treated as normal...
    I just cant stand those thats all.

    As a conclusion: They don't sell the product but emotions. Product is what we "need" to feel those.



    Well you did not asked for it but thats what i think lol

    LOL. Okay okay, I got what you mean.

    Are you kidding ? I am a Castelvania fan and I loved LOS version too. As well as 3DS version also released for PS3 as ported also! You should try it! It is Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD.

    For Ninja Gaiden... It is called Ninja Gaiden Sigma and Sigma Plus 2 for Vita.. No different but PS3 version was way better.

    Oof, was a bit cringe-worthy in my opinion, that ad, but thankfully still a damn sight better than that singing knobhead on the Series X one! I mean, wtf....:lol:

    ...Ratchet & Clank PS2 games? Sure, the emulation or whatever's a bit wonky at times - model-clipping issues and other non-game-ruining visual errors - but 2, 3 and Deadlocked are all still very playable and great fun.
    Into the Nexus is also the best R&C Future game, which...says something about the PS3 games, actually. Huh.

    Persona 4 Arena and P4A Ultimax are also PS3-exclusive, though I haven't played either yet.

    I used to play R&C3 local multiplayer (versus) A LOT as a kid, with friends. It was massive fun, though it often devolved to "who can get the OP hovership first"!

    What, the inferior reboot? I unfortunately seem to have purchased it - a waste of money - before I had checked reviews. Ugh. AWFUL game with none of the soul of the original, quite a few changes and quite a bit of removed content.
    Screw that. Abysmal. They could've done a Spyro: Reignited, but instead they did a retarded job in order to peddle a game and a movie.

    Just watched the ad, and...HOW was this a PS5 ad? It didn't feature the console in question AT ALL! No gameplay, no menu navigation, no exploration of actual system features, NOTHING. Just rando B-roll footage of world/space exploration - which is not what people will do with a PS5 console.
    :blink:

    "he theme of the spot is centered around the idea of exploration." it tries to be poethic and have meaning behind it..but yeah..i find it stupid and also think the same way as you. didn't feature the console in question at all.
