It Only Does Unbelievable HD Entertainment Bundles

Peter Dille's Avatar + Posted by Peter Dille on Nov 28, 2009 // Senior Vice President, Marketing & PlayStation Network

Hi everyone. I hope you’re all well recovered from a tryptophan-induced holiday and are getting ready for some exciting shopping ahead (this is of course, if you haven’t already taken advantage of our great Black Friday promotions).

It’s been a lot of fun rolling out the many creative executions of our “Dear PlayStation” ad campaign over the last few weeks. Kevin Butler has garnered legions of fans as he demonstrates how the PS3 “Only Does Everything” in his very unique style. In fact, even our friends and partners at Best Buy have been impressed. So much so, they approached us about a unique collaboration featuring Best Buy’s “blue shirt” campaign in which actual Best Buy employees solve customer needs. Of course, we loved the idea.

Our colleagues at Sony Electronics and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment also got involved with Best Buy to sweeten the deal by offering an amazing value bundle that showcases the true powerhouse Sony is when it comes to HD entertainment. The bundle combines a PlayStation 3, a Bravia HDTV, and a choice of a new game and Blu-ray movie – all with a total savings of up to $1100! The promotion runs from November 29th until December 12th across Best Buy stores nationwide and online at BestBuy.com. There are some limitations, so read more on the bundle here: BestBuy.com/SonyTVPS3.

If you or a friend is in the market for a true 1080p HD experience, you need to check this deal out. You can also thank Kevin and Best Buy’s Nick DeVita of New York for one-upping each other to create an “explosive” bundle and a great commercial.

I’d like to thank our sister companies and particularly our partners at Best Buy for helping make this happen. I hope many of you can take advantage of this opportunity to deck your living room with the ultimate HD entertainment experience.

Cheers,
Peter

That is a pretty nice deal! I just purchased an on sale Bravia 32 inch myself and believe me the beast known as PS3 looks great on it – movies are now spectacular!

I have to say this is the weakest Butler commercial so far. Wasn’t amusing in the least.

“But Bravia tv’s arent good.”

What?

Anyway, great little ad as always. Not a bad deal either. :-)

It was an ok ad but it doesnt really matter because it gets the point out to people pretty well.

Awesome commercial. Hope we can get this one on the PS Store, as well as the others that have yet to be put up.

Losing FF-XIII exclusiity ultimately will cost Sony the cosole race.

It’s a shame because ever since the Slim and newer firmwares came out with the lower price PS3 has been great. BC2 beta is amazing too.

Awesome, love the commercial.

+ VenomXv on November 28th, 2009 at 4:03 pm said:

@phinnv8

Yeah, maybe if it was 1998, lol. Final fantasy isn’t the best selling game on PlayStation, Gran Turismo is and that can’t lose its exclusivity since Sony owns it.

+ ITforensic on November 28th, 2009 at 4:05 pm said:

Nice work!
However, Grandma (hoop and a stick!)is the best commercial for any Sony product, ever!
I watched it over and over again and would laugh every time… That is a good marketing.
Keep your marketing people (and give them nice bonuses)

+ Shadow_Dancer on November 28th, 2009 at 4:06 pm said:

Nice ads. That Kevin Butler guy is hilarious.

…How about an ad that shows it’s backward compatibility feature? You can show how it can play Psone but NOT PS2 games…Guess it can’t do everything ;)

+ cossackboy on November 28th, 2009 at 9:10 pm said:

These Kevin Butler ads all need to be collected in one place because they’re great.


33

+ Kairon on November 28th, 2009 at 9:11 pm said:

They’ve been showing all the new PS3 ads at my local Gamestop, but I’m guessing this one wont make it onto the TV there ;)

Great job with this new lineup of adverts Sony, just please don’t over-do them! The Kevin Butler guy is great.

I like smart humor and this didn’t really do it for me. However you can’t argue with 1100 dollars off.

+ Rhez on November 28th, 2009 at 9:56 pm said:

I have a Bravia 40″ and it’s great. I did hear was an earlier model of Bravia that had some problems. The new models should be fine. Just check out some consumer reports to avoid the bad ones especially if you happen to buy an older version of Bravia.

@phinnv8, Sony is not the publisher of FF, is SquareEnix, And SE choose the consoles. “Sadly” XBox 360 have the “same” potential as the PS3 for Final Fantasy XIII

BOOMbastic!

How about Demon’s Souls commercial? I think gamers should know about this game because it’s awesome and epic RPG game.

Please fix trophy syncing. Come On!

+ Thrill_Kill on November 29th, 2009 at 12:14 am said:

Love the new commercials. They are nearly as good as the old Ratchet and Clank vids for PS2.

I am also very pleased you started doing things exclusively with Best Buy instead of GameStop. I buy all of my PlayStation stuff from Best Buy. They now have the Gamers Club as well like Circuit City had. Great place to get some PSX products!

Good job guys!
