Yeah … Wonderful … especially in Europe…

Lovely being ignored constantly. :) Rock band 4 Dlc.

Where’s the part where they login to the blog to complain about the plus games?

Where’s the part where they can’t really afford games cause they’re too expensive?

may as well just say, “once we have got your money, we don’t need to do anything more, so enjoy our mediocre service and complain all you want as we dont actually listen to any gamers “

Yeah, PS4 players sure have wonderful lives.

Especially when compared to Vita and PS TV players.

Not a bad commercial. I can confirm that I drive the Batmobile to work and I do have a robot dinosaur for a pet.

Lies. I have a PS4 and my life sucks just as much as it did before. And I certainly can’t dance either. grr.


I loved the Rock Band dlc reference! …oh wait, it wasn’t there.


Where was the additional DLC required to unlock new doors around the house, friends and dance moves?

I was proud to be a PlayStation gamer but after watching this I’m just embarrassed.

Destiny, Black Ops III, Destiny, Black Ops III and even some more. Way too much Activision. :(

Still prefer those old weird commercials :) But this was good as well not just as good to *me*. :D


I know what you mean, gaming is for the masses now so they have to make commercials the masses understand :(

heh , I don’t actually mind the masses. I mind that the masses only seem interested in certain games and all these unique games and rpgs we usually had are dying out.
We can pretend that the smaller games are filling that hole but we’re just lying to ourself then.
But hey, I have some high hopes for a few independent developers so we’ll see :)

Well that totally didn’t represent me as a PS gamer at all….never played COD or Destiny never will


I liked the part when he can use his own wallpaper in ps4…oh wait…nope.

A bit cringeworthy unfortunately. :/

I much prefer the old ones that were off the wall and used a bit of artistic license, or even the Kevin Butler ones.

No crash bandicoot in the video tipical

Great soundtrack, great ad. I too would have loved to have seen more references to classic games I play but that’s a personal thing.
