I think about 50% Of my room's furniture is from IKEA.


But anyway... It's a bit too gentle.
I thought it would be something really in your face... but 'this is living' in pansy writing.
Not amused at all.

I think "Xbox 360 can kiss my ass and the Wii can go have a wee." would have been much better. :D

This is living? This is living? LOL! I like gaming, but there are a few more things in life than sitting in front of the TV, playing games with people you don't know. Well, I think, anyway...

I agree with most people, the logo is a little pansy-ish. Perhaps just a giant fist smashing into somebody's face? :D

I thought the PS3 was technically superior to the other consoles, how about a poster saying

'Our console is technically the best'

This is how I looked at it too..more like 'this is rotting'!

'Play Beyond' sounds more 'out there' and interesting in my book.

I think they intent to aim at those who say things like "You play Video games? Get a life ! "This Is Living" is trying to hint at how good the console is advertising itself as .. ? :whi:

I find this slogan somehow creepy. If I buy a console that says "This is living", I expect small bugs to come crawling out...

It's also very, very vague. What is so living about the PS3? Is there any special message Sony wants to send? Compare, for example, to Nintendo, who seem to lack a formal slogan but who seem to have the message "Games that are fun, for everyone, not only gamers". Sony's only message is "The PS3 is cool. Buy one.", and their slogan reflects this lack of message.

I like it, but I'm not keen on the font they've used.

I think it's a play on the fact that you can really "live" in the game world, doing things you can't, or won't, in real life. And... with the logo beating like a heart, they're kind of suggesting the PS3 is "alive"... beyond a mere machine. As well as symbolising, of course, the adrenaline rush you'll get from playing many of the games.

I think it's smart.

You tell me this is living? LIVING? Now how'd it go... Ah! Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!

Not the best slogan for times when video games addiction receives more and more attention. Bad. I wish PS3 the best.

PS3. We will kill you if we find out you didn't believe our lies. Coming March 2007 (which is code for 2008).


Heres One For Sony:

Sony. We steal your work so we don't have to?
(I know what your thinking, Yeh, I mean they don't have to work.)


Another Two For Sony:

1)
Sony. We always have production problems.

2)
Sony. We don't care about Europe.

Well, I didn't know that. I hate sony at the moment so I will say anything that isn't true to make them look bad, just like them without making us look bad, just them.

I dont understand why the big deal over the delay. Seriously I cant name one PS3 launch title that I would really want. All the good PS3 games come out late 2007. A delay doesn't make much of a difference at all to me regarding PS3 games I want.

Personally, I agree. I wasn't planning on getting a PS3 for quite a while myself. Holiday 2007 or maybe even 2008 sometime. The bad thing is that Sony keeps tripping up and people want to believe they can count on them--and that confidence is on shaky ground. I wouldn't have been surprised if the US and Japan launches were delayed until Spring 2007 and Europe even later... and that can still happen.

Its a big deal considering the cash they will loose out on over Christmas, and poor little spoiled Jonny will have to settle for a new plasma TV intead of the rather expensive PS3. Poor Jonny!
