201w ago - SCEA General Manager Mark Stanley for Latin America has shared some new videos today spotlighting a new PlayStation in Latin America: Live in a State of Play advertising campaign.

To quote: Hola PlayStation Nation. It's a huge treat to share with you today all the exciting news we have for PlayStation in Latin America.

Today marks a momentous milestone as we launch our first official advertising campaign for the region and have the great privilege of unveiling the first two TV commercials with you, our most loyal fans.

As some of you may know, we formally launched the PlayStation business in Latin America early last year and today we are officially operating in 19 countries across the region. We're thrilled at the opportunity to extend the same access to the full breadth of PlayStation products and services to our consumers in Latin America as we've been doing in the US and Canada for many years.

This means that when North American consumers are able to experience first-hand the array of immersive and revolutionary PlayStation Move games, Latin America consumers are also sharing in that experience on the same day.

We're also spending a lot of time focusing on bringing customized and localized experiences for our Latin American PlayStation Nation....
