199w ago - Sony is set to launch an £82m pan-European marketing campaign for the PlayStation 3, firing the first advertising salvo against rivals Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox as consumers start to think about presents for Christmas 2009.
The TV element of the campaign, which has been developed by the TBWA agency, marks a departure from Sony's traditional tactic of often esoteric and dark commercials.
To quote: The new set of TV ads, the first of which launch in the UK tonight, focus on the simpler aim of describing the range of services available on the PS3. These include online gaming and Blu-ray movies, downloading TV and film content and being able to watch the BBC iPlayer.
"Two years after launch, PlayStation 3 is realising its full potential," said Alan Duncan, UK marketing director. "The console is moving beyond gaming and gaming is moving beyond discs."
211w ago - Today Sony's Peter Dille, Senior Vice President of Marketing & PlayStation Network, has announced the PSP Go alongside a huge wave of PSN content.
To quote: We've been saying that 2009 will be a breakout year for the PSP because of the killer software lineup that no other handheld can match. Well, the PSP story is even stronger now with the unveiling of the PSP go, the newest addition to the PlayStation Portable family that is sure to be the "must-have" device for consumers seeking the deepest gaming and entertainment experience on-the-go.
PSP go is sleek, pocket-sized, and 100 percent digital. This is the PSP designed for those of you who are completely comfortable downloading and storing digital media, and it's ideal for anyone who considers themselves an early adopter of the latest and greatest technology.
After talking extensively with consumers and our publishing partners, we know that now is the time to introduce PSP go. It will live alongside the current PSP-3000, and I should note that for those who prefer disc-based content, we remain committed to the UMD format, which will continue to be available at retail.
213w ago - Square Enix members has finally had an update which shows the construction of some huge Final Fantasy XIII advertisements in LA, GTA style.
The posters clearly read "COMING 2010", which was fairly predictable. This also a nod towards an appearance at E3 and according to their post, they have "big things" planned.
To quote: Vanille, Snow, and Lightning from FINAL FANTASY XIII! Oh yes we did. A beauty, isn't it? We've been anxiously waiting for this day for months now, and to watch it finally materialize is a great feeling to say the least.
These photos were taken a few days ago, but it is now completed. If you're in the area, we suggest you go to the corner of S. Figueroa Street and Olympic Boulevard in Downtown Los Angeles, and look up. You really have to see it for yourself.
With E3 right around the corner, it's pedal-to-the-metal mode for us here at Square Enix, which means very late nights (or early mornings, depending on how you see it) and more fast food than you can imagine. There are some big things planned for you, so we're all excited about this year's E3. We've got a great lineup of products to show and word in the office is that our booth will be quite the sight.
No, I take that back. It's going to be AWESOME. It's a shame that we won't be able to share...
