PS4 Hype Train Spawns Amusing Commercial And New Community Site

Jonathan Lester
Playstation 4, PS4, Sony, trailer

All aboard! The next-gen hype train is well and truly rolling, with Sony now raising the stakes thanks to a new television commercial and community 'Greatness Awaits' website. You can hit the latter through the link and watch the former above, which (shock horror!) is actually rather amusing and effective... relatively speaking. At least it's a far cry from the creepy PS3 adverts and utterly detestable PSP TV spots.

The PS4 launches on November 29th in the UK, in case you didn't know.

Define 'effective' Jon, I have no idea what that advert was meant to be doing? Unless it was made to confuse me, in which case, job done!

It's all relative, really. The commercial made us smile, and didn't put us off owning the product like pretty much every single Sony advert throughout history has managed to do. ;)

Perhaps I'm not the target demographic, but nothing about that advert made me want to purchase or be interested in pre-ordering a PS4.

Perhaps I just don't get adverts any more, or they're too clever for my brain.

That must be it!

I'm just pleased to learn I'm not the only person who sings Lou Reed songs whilst gaming.

Not that I need my awareness raised about the PS4, but I have to admit that advert did raise a smile from me. It's brilliantly odd.

Also, I haven't thought much of the series up to this point, but real life Killzone looks like great fun.
