The Best PS3 Commercial Ever Featuring Real Life Video Game CharactersPosted 10:43 pm on Monday, October 10th, 2011 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
This has got to be the coolest PlayStation 3 TV commercial ever…scratch that, the best commercial ever. It’s promoting Sony’s new “Long Live Play” slogan and features your favorite video game characters in real life like Kratos (God of War), Solid Snake (Metal Gear Solid series), Agent 47 (Hitman), Ezio (Assassin’s Creed), Ghost (Modern Warfare), Cole MacGrath (inFAMOUS), Isaac (Dead Space), Lightning (Final Fantasy XIII), Nathan Drake (Uncharted), Sackboy, Little Sister (BioShock) and a bunch of other video game characters. Now if only the movies can look this good. Now check out the “Michael” ad below.
The reason why this is so epic is because it combines a lot of characters that I have shared many hours with. I felt a connection with each one of them, and it makes me even more excited to be a gamer. The characters look and sound like they do in the video games, and you can thank the actual voice actors for lending their voices for this ad The ad took Deutsch and Sony 5 months to create, having permission from all the developers involved.
