    I find it to be a great ad. The hype for it wasnt worth it but the ad as a whole works.

    As someone who didn't get his hopes up about Sony's "announcement". All I have to say is....REALLY? The commercial was cool and all. But to make an announcement for an Ad Campaign is, to say the least. A little retarded. Even if it is to pay tribute to the gamers who own a PS3.
    Had the Ad just ended it with Thank You, you are all 'Micheal' Long.Live.Play. Would have been better than ending it with the PS3 can be bought for $249. That in itself. to me, just defeated the entire purpose of the Ad.

    Totally agree. They pour a load of hype all over their customers... then give us an ad campaign. Clinically retarded.

    When I heard it was just an ad campaign I was a bit disappointed, but that feeling went after I saw the actual advert. I loved it...but it looks like I'm in the minority!

    Anyways do we really need a new big announcement! We got so many epic games coming out, there's the Vita coming out soon, Home is being completely updated and there's that new PSN thing giving us PS2 games...cheer up!

    Leave it to Sony to hype an advertising campaign, but then sneak in some major annoucement that actually matters under the radar (like PS+'s Auto-update for example).

    I'm still not sure if this is it or if this is that cusp seeing as they just started a new KB campaign. Like maybe this will be apart of a major update to PSN/PS+ still? As a "thank you."

    Embarassing to hype a thank you ad? Maybe.

    Pretentious? No. Atleast not anymore than advertising is by definition. I'd argue perhaps less even, since its rare for advertisers to thank the consumers.

    See comments like this is why I'm convinced you either can't be satisfied or bitch just to bitch.

    Who cares what the person's name is? Its irrelevant to the (very obvious) point of the ad.

    Its like complaining they named Gordon Freeman, Gordon instead of "<your name here>"

    Well, as I said, this was a massive letdown. Don't get me wrong, I did sort of enjoy the advert, but with the hype it was given I did actually expect a new game or at least something new announced.

    However, what we actually got was NOTHING!

    Did anybody ever take into account the contest they held a few months (I think) before this commercial? If I am not mistaken, the "cosplayers" were the people who won. This was their "15 minutes."

    Seriously people? No one caught on? No one read the details? Tisk tisk.

    Here, let me post whats in the blog:
    Early last month, with some ambiguity, we announced that we were looking for a few good gamers to assist us with a special assignment related to our freshly launched Long Live Play campaign. Long Live Play honors gamers from all walks of life and recognizes you for making PlayStation who we are today.

    We asked members of the PlayStation Nation to email us with pictures of themselves holding their PS3 controller and in 30 words-or-less, describe how they epitomize the ultimate PlayStation gamer. I know that PlayStation gamers are some of the most impassioned fans in the world, but I was blown away by the thousands of responses that flooded my email.

    After weeks of anticipation, I can finally reveal the complete ambition behind Long Live Play. I’m delighted to announce that we’ve painstakingly reviewed each submission and selected a dozen or so die-hard gamers to represent the PlayStation Nation in a brand new Long Live Play campaign that will air on national TV starting October 5th. We think this film provides an insider’s look into what it’s like to be immersed in our universe and why it’s so compelling to game on the PS3.
    I think it was pretty awesome of SONY to do that.

    Oh, and this:

    I thought the ad was pretty epic. Seeing all those characters together was awesome, especially the ones that weren't in PS3 exclusive games. Watching Drake hit on Lightning was probably my favorite bit. Still, I can't help being just a little disappointed that this ad wasn't paired with some sort of major announcement.

    No. The cosplayers were not the people who won. Michael was one of the people who won, which is pretty obvious seeing as the picture of him showed him holding a ps3 controller, just what they had asked for... And some of the other 'winners' had their pictures all over the ceiling. You seriously thought the cosplayers were the ones that won the competition? lol.
