Japanese Playstation 3 commercials now with PS3 game footage


Never mind the fact that Playstation 3s are sold out in Japan, Sony is running new commercials featuring future titles. The ads showcase Afrika (shown), Metal Gear Solid 4 and Final Fantasy XIII, Minna no Golf 5 (Hot Shots Golf 5) all of which don’t have upcoming release dates. There is one game that has a brief trailer in stores and to no surprise its’ Ridge Racer 7. On launch day Ridge Racer 7 sold over 30,000 copies and it was the top selling PS3 game. Showing actual clips from games is a good idea, but why games so far in the future? Why not showcase current games like Resistance: Fall of Man or Genji 2… well if they had to choose between Genji 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4 the ad department made the right choice.
