Playstation 3 ad induces sleep

October 17, 2006

Oh dear. It appears Sony hasn’t stopped at copying Nintendo’s Wii controller with its own SIXAXIS controller for the PS3, they’ve even gone and taken the base idea behind Nintendo’s “School’s Out” ad and deformed it into a PS3 teaser called “The Wait is Over”. The result is horrendously boring and derivative.

I think it’s a telling fact for the future of the two consoles that Nintendo’s is lighthearted and engaging fun, while Sony’s is overladen with the ambition of being cool and stylish, but ultimately dull.

See for yourself:
