I'm loving these live action video game commercials!

The Skyrim commercial was awesome...very well done and didn't look cheesy at all.

I also saw the Halo 4 commercial and at first mistook it for a new movie coming out...and I must say I was ready to shell out the $20 to go see it.

Forget Hollywood, we should start letting video game companies make movies...a whole lot more originality and a whole lot less remakes.

Or we could just let video game companies keep making video games.

Really? I hate live action commercials. I want to just see actual gameplay. Though I must admit I really like the Borderlands 2 commerical and the Black Ops 1 commercials with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum.

I've always said that there should be certain companies who sell things they are particularly good at:

Bethesda-They should sell their compression techniques
Square and Blizzard-They should sell their CGI abilities
Microsoft-They should open up an advertising firm

The Borderlands 2 and Black Ops 2 commercials were really cool too. I even liked the Prototype 2 commercial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FmMidL8KUOE). I know they're not for everyone, but it's cool to see the level video games has risen to.

Why can't they do both...I'm sure they can walk and chew bubblegum at the same time.

It is amazing how much money some of these franchise have now. Mass Effect 3 had a cool one. Let my find the link.

I know, it's crazy. I don't know maybe it's because I'm a gamer but I like to see video games getting the royal treatment when it comes to advertising...standing right beside movies.

and...what should Sony sell?

Based on the Vita's performance. Nothing.

Ohhh burn. I actually really like the Vita, it's sad to see if failing like it is.

Yeah, it's a great little system, but Sony is going to have to pull a Nintendo to get them moving. Either drop the price to $199.99 and include a 4gb memory card, or keep the price at $249.99 and include a 16gb memory card. It's hard to go buy a system and the money that you were going to spend on a game has to be put towards proprietary memory cards.

I wonder how much Activision paid just to have Robert Downey Jr. for 5 secs in the newest BLOPS2 commercial.

They installed a Golden Iron Man statue in his front yard.

I know what you mean, having to buy the memory cards does suck and was a big mistake on Sonys part, they should have at least included a 4gb card with the system.

The best live action trailer I've seen so far was for Most Wanted, although I could care less about the game, my hats off to the trailer.

I think PS+ for Vita plus the first major cross-buy release of Playstation All Stars in November could provide a nice boost for the system. This week had a few really good looking releases and we get Persona Golden later this month.

I've said it before, but that^^^^ is the best live-action trailer ever made. Deliver Hope and Metroid: Other M's live-action trailers come close.
