PlayStation 3 Commercials

What on earth were they selling again?

Before the PlayStation 3 launched in 2006, Sony spent $150 million for a marketing program that had a TON of creepy-as-hell commercials, with demonic baby dolls, a bizarre-looking Scottish woman, Rubik's Cubes solving themselves and exploding, a man laughing with a gun in his bathtub, and a naked woman with a Japanese swordsman.

Why Most Of Them Sucked

  1. Some of the commercials were WAY too creepy and very disturbing.
  2. They had nothing to do with the console. If you're gonna make a commercial this creepy, at least show some features of the PS3 like its Blu-ray capabilities or its Cell processor or its early backwards compatibility.
  3. No games are shown in those commercials.
  4. Those commercials are very confusing to the point of being able to make Serial Experiments Lain look like a Disney Junior show in comparsion with them.
  5. A few of them were just plain nasty.
  6. The infamous commercial baby.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. Fortunately, Sony would later bounce back with the famous 'Kevin Butler' ad campaign.

I love my baby, but I wish he would stop saying "This human form is limiting."

The commercials looks more like a forgotten nightmare for a long time. but the Dragon's Dogma combat fade-out sound, the Red Dead Redemption game over sound and the Minecraft cave sounds gived me worse nightmares.

They tried to encourage buying a PS3. All they did is encourage people to buy an Xbox 360. When Kinect was released, it became the other way around.

It'd be better if they used the Blu-Ray drive as some sort of man-eating creature.

I find the PS1, PS2, PS4, PS5, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S commercials leagues better than these freak shows.

Reality: Oh no, the toy is better than me, I’m gonna eat everyone’s soul
