New Japanese PS3 Slim commercials are... different?

The folks over at Joystiq got their hands on Sony’s new “Playface” ads for the PlayStation 3 Slim. These Japanese TV commercials are certainly worth watching, but they are more than a little different.
It’ll be interesting to see the Western commercials for the PS3 Slim. Our favorite part is the elephant noises accompanied with a female gamer who appears a bit excited.

I'm special ! - PS3 ads

I like the commercials because they show a very large range of emotions that games often conjure. In a way, it's a great expression of the medium.

Seriously, I see those adds, I am changing the channel.
Why do Sony think they have to be so different to sell the console? Keep it simple. Keep it effective and show what your console can do, show the great games, the features. Not people apparently having sex with their consoles.

Kind of stupid, they dont show how much smaller the Slim is then the regular PS3 Phatty OG.

I love that ad that shows Warhawk, GT5P, Uncharted, Heavenly Sword, Spider-Man on BD and with a music that says "Ladys and Gentlemen, good evening", they should do a new version of it with Uncharted 2, GT5, God of War 3, Heavy Rain, MAG... Same music though =P would be awesome

It must have been all the drugs. Japanese drugs that transform into robots with laser beams.

and sony wondered why people didn't want to pay $600 for a console... hmm maybe its because you didn't tell them wt.f they were getting and capatalize on that, rather than making retarted commercials, that at time, made me embarrased to be a PS3 supporter.
Some of their commercials scream, only pedophile/drug addicted freaks buy PS3... oh and make sure to jerk off to soccer. (Let see who gets that last part)

Japanese chicks are hot.

Wow, those are some really well-done commercials.
- 9:20pm EDT - August 24th, 2009
You people forget these are ads for Japan. This is how things always are in Japan. Nothing new here.

Japan has the BEST commercials for anything. YouTube has an ample supply of Japanese game commercials.

yes! c'mon sony. have a fatty ps3 sitting next to the slim. it will explain it all. and you don't have to hire those krazy japanese people, to make faces. who is in charge of sony's advertising?? i want to write them a letter to tell them how much they suck at advertising.. . it's a ps3 slim. not a new console launch.. in a way it is. but, not really. the only thing that has changed. it's the price and size and the spider-man lettering has changed from what i heard. PLEASE SONY MAKE YOUR ADVERTISEMENTS BETTER!!!!
