Last Week’s PS3 Teaser Video Leads to a New Line of PS3 Ads

Last week’s teaser video filled with various PlayStation game references promised something was coming on October 5. Despite what some predicted, it’s not meant to promote the PlayStation Home relaunch or any new games; instead, it’s a video for a new line of advertisements, albeit a pretty cool one.

It starts out in similar fashion to last week’s before allowing us to see who was making all of that noise heard towards the end of the first video. A number of PlayStation 3 game characters can be seen recalling various experiences they’ve had — there is Uncharted’s Nathan Drake, Twisted Metal’s Sweet Tooth, Infamous‘ Cole MacGrath, MLB 11 cover star Joe Mauer, Metal Gear Solid’s Solid Snake, Portal’s Chell, LittleBigPlanet’s Sackboy, God of War’s Kratos, Assassin’s Creed’s Ezio Auditore, and quite a few more. Sony claims there are plenty of Easter eggs in there that will be hard to pick up on during your first viewing.

The entire purpose of the trailer is to cast light on PS3 gamers; all of the characters end up chanting the name “Michael,” who is one of the many people who responded to a call by Sony last month to send in a picture of yourself holding a PS3 controller. About a dozen people were chosen for this Long Live Play campaign that you’ll begin seeing on national television today.

What do you think of the video? Are you disappointed it wasn’t something more significant, or are you able to enjoy this for what it is?
