Wow this sent shivers down my neck, most of characters in video are the actual original voice actors.

Nolan North included

#2 Edited by Jack268 (3387 posts) -

I hope those voice actors got together to do the acting for that rumored "Sony Smash Bros" game as well.

Okay, that was really damn good.

That ad is bizarre.

#5 Posted by EndlessObsidian (477 posts) -

What a weird yet amazing ad. Well done Sony, well done.

That was pretty effin' amazing, love the Dead Space suit!!!! I want it. 

#9 Posted by MikkaQ (10318 posts) -

Ah that's great. I love clever advertising.

#10 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11307 posts) -

That's how the Uncharted movie should be: A dude what looks like Nathan Drake with Nolan North's voice dubbed over that other dude.

That's also how the Mass Effect movie should be, get that guy what the Shepard face is based on and have Mark Meer dub over him.

Or not.

I dunno, seemed kinda silly. They should have been toasting "The Player" instead of just Michael.

Couldn't get T.C. Carson huh?
 
Still an awesome ad though.
 
Seriously though, Kratos has nothing to say?
 
Also shout out to Chell!

At this point, with Drake being older and chubbier I wouldn't mind him actually being played by Nolan North.

That's pretty effin awesome.

#18 Posted by Brodehouse (10079 posts) -

That was fucking great, give me a fucking 90 minute movie of that, have Nolan North play every role, fucking shit dude.

#19 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

That was.......Pretty awesome.

#20 Posted by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

I liked it but I thought it was going to consist of PS exclusive guys.

#21 Posted by SuperCycle (333 posts) -

That was a really good advert, I watched it a few times. Were those the actual voice actors? I recognized the voices of David Hayter and Nolan North. Was that Cole, Athena, Ezio, and Ghost?

#22 Posted by ExplodeMode (852 posts) -

Drake trying to chat up Lightning is pretty good.
 
I want to play some MGS4 and MW2 again after hearing those voices.

#23 Posted by Branthog (5583 posts) -

Holy shit. I was prepared to hate whatever this was going to be, going in and it turned out to be kind of amazing.

Really? I thought Resistance was about a future struggle between humanity and some form of alien enemy, not a World War 2-ish game :/

#25 Posted by ze_ro (181 posts) -

...wow, kudos to Sony

No, I've never played Resistance :P But a couple of R2 screens and the quick look of R3 gave me that impression i described.

#29 Posted by GlenTennis (3145 posts) -

Really loved this ad, and I don't even have a PS3.

Well, okay then.

Yeah, that was the thing with R1, they took aliens, and set it in the 50s, so it was all WW2-y. It seemed cool at the time (still kinda is).

Just think he is your ordinary WW2 random Normandy dude.

one assumes resistance

#34 Posted by mordukai (7157 posts) -

So hold on. This was their major announcement? Really??? Fail.

#35 Posted by Sanj (2461 posts) -

That was fucking awesome.

#36 Posted by Burns098356GX (1366 posts) -

SackBoy was cool, Ezio was cool.

Snake looked like a real pedo.

Don't think so.. im pretty sure WWII didn't happen in Resistance, and he was talking about Omaha Beach.

#38 Posted by HellBrendy (994 posts) -

Solid Snake looks kind of off, but what the hell - it's fucking awesome.

#39 Posted by JackSukeru (5922 posts) -

I didn't like how it cements the view of the "gamer" as a teenage guy, but other than that it was pretty cool. Will watch again.

#40 Posted by Tearhead (2179 posts) -

That was pretty awesome!

#41 Posted by imsh_pl (3298 posts) -

Great job, Michael.

#42 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -

That was very awesome, love Snake being there.

#43 Posted by Vegetable_Side_Dish (1730 posts) -

Now make a mute one with Team Ico characters only, zooming out to show that the tranquil field they're in is actually on the back of a colossus. 

#44 Posted by JeanLuc (3591 posts) -

That was pretty cool.

After seeing this I'd be ok with that. After all, all dialogue in movies is re-dubbed over anyways so its totally possible.

#45 Posted by LiquidSaiyan3 (461 posts) -

Also, Paul from Tekken

Yeah, Chell and and a CGI Ratchet are there, too.

When I think of the Sony Brand I don't think of characters that belong to third-parties. As to what I think of the ad itself, seems awkward.

#48 Posted by Bucketdeth (8024 posts) -

Sony really have the marketing down in general, great ad. Now they just need to advertise more and get those exclusives selling. Sad that Resistance 3 didn't get great numbers, I thought it was awesome. On the other hand, the market is so damn saturated with FPS's and these next coming months are packed with huge titles, it's hard to come out on top with minimal advertising, such as in RS3's case.

#49 Posted by ValeYard (149 posts) -

Really great ad. Someone did some great work there, crazy how an advertisement for a gaming platform can get you so PUMPED... not unlike the Equalizer intro:
