They have MASTERED the art of making amazing promotions/adds for their games. Gears of Wars MAD WORLD, Halo3's Belive adds............... and now Viva Pinata's "Believa Piñata"

  


Well played sir, youre getting a purchase from me.

This was actually from Microsoft? I just thought it was a funny joke that someone made... I still do because I recognize some of the toys that were given at a fast-food establishment whose name slips my mind.

That was actually really good. Better than Sony's advertisement of MGS4 "This isn't a move, but we are totally going to advertise it like one by getting the deep voice-movie-god-guy and using the phrase 'Only one man can stop him.'"

umm, people like you wouldnt buy the game if it gave you blow jobs.

Sorry they arent making Generic Video game adds with loud music and fast cuts to appeal to 12 year old brats like sony is

Funny, because I bought the first Viva Pinata.

Why apologize to me? If you've got a problem with Sony's marketing, write them a letter, addressing your concerns.

Going at me won't make Sony's ads change. Sorry bud.

who was "going at you"? i dont have a problem with sony's 1980s style adds to attract prepubecent brats..... its marketing, and looking at you, it works.

seeing as these adds arent your taste, MS should  flood their adds with CG videos and games coming out in 2011 (Maybe) to sell a console to people you....right?

No, but a little bit of the game's content would be nice.


Like, don't get me wrong, I know it was based of the Halo commercials, and it was creative, but that doesn't make me want to buy it. Don't know why you have to act like you know my tastes. Which ads are you talking about? The last Sony ad I saw was one with MGS4 (already released), GT5P (already released), and LBP (this year), so I really don't know where you're getting this 2011 thing from.

I also thought that this wasn't a real ad by Microsoft. I thought it was pretty clever; although it has no game footage it might spark interest in the Viva Pinata games.

Yeah, I really don't know how to say it anymore clearer. Home has been delayed, that's something undebatable.

Sorry, I'm not from America. The ads for those didn't release here until shortly after MGS4 released. Home wasn't in our ads.

I'm not debating about Home, that's why I said it's undebatable.

I find it funny. You're so worked up over someone not wanting to buy Viva Pinata. I said it was creative. And then you just go off and start talking about 12 year old brats and prepubescents like I'm one of them, just because I'm excited for a game or game(s), and not totally balls deep for the one you are.

Tough shit, I'm expressing my opinion on the matter/commercial, and if you don't like it, fuck off. Tired of being buggered by blind fanboys like you.

PS. Next time you associate me with a 12 year old brat, or prepubescent, type a grammatically correct sentence, with big boy things like apostrophes and all!

Now I have to go to bed, I have to work tomorrow. Go jerk it to Batman comics.

Constantly bashing Microsoft commercials? How exactly did you make me look like an idiot? Type coherently.

Last I checked, I said it didn't make me want to buy the game. That doesn't mean it's a bad commercial. Just not really my style.

And yeah, Batman comics. You're the one who has the handle "Riddler", who had it as his icon. You know, that kind of stuff.

And the Why So Serious was a joke.

Expressing and defending an opinion is grounds for banning but being called a C**** and a Tw** isn't?

I mean, I'm not doing anything wrong.

I stated and defended my opinion while people constantly called me names. I don't get this. Way to promote a community.

You're just being insulting. Cut it out.

I come here for intelligent discussion, not insults.

So, back on topic.


The ad was pretty creative and will make a lot of people intrigued. Not too sure it's my thing.

Neither are any others companies ads, though. All I feel when I see Nintendo/Sony/MS commercials is "Hmm...cool".
