All I'm personally hoping for is that AoD makes it onto PSN as a PS2 classic because even though so say it was terrible, it sold millions and I'd regard it as a classic.
Yeah but it only really sold millions, due to it being/having:
#1 - Lara's next gen game! (OMG OMG OMG!)
#2 - A really, really thorough advertising campaign.

So I doubt we'll ever see it on PSN.

I wouldn't doubt it to be honest. Some of the games that have made the cut so far have been fairly random, some seeming rather obscure. I think its got a chance, personally. It depends if people are interested. I guess it works like PS1 Classics were you voice your interest to see the game and it gets added to the list.

Is there any chance that this footage contains ideas that were supposed to be in TRAOD 2?

Maybe...that would be a bit cool though. But AOD is already fine as she is...X3

No, no chance it contains any ideas from AOD2, the library was an early area from AOD that was never used, this commercial is based on the real library, not something Core Design never made. Core Design would not have approved the idea if they had intended to use the library in the next game. Apart from maybe some early concept art, everything in the Visa commercial would have been the idea of the Animal Logic team who made it. They had a fair bit of experience making Tomb Raider themed commercials, there was no reason to think they were psychic and could somehow channel ideas Core Design might have been thinking of including in the next game.

Although the next game Core Design were planning would have only been deleted stuff from AOD strung together with probably very little story, this idea they seem to have given up on. Their AOD engine was incapable of doing anything like that chase scene anyway. A concept for the library and a demon with strange eyes defending his library is probably all Animal Logic started with. Core Design gave up on having the Cabal members being demonic or having supernatural powers, so even that would have been an early concept.

If anyone wants to have a go at trying to connect the Animal Logic made Monster Chase commercial with an idea started by Core Design for AOD, Bruce Hunt provided extensive reference material for at least the monster, maybe other things seen as well. This could have been AOD concept art, but as far as I know it was never said where the material came from. We saw one concept for an early mechanical/human hybrid monster in the early AOD concept art released.

Here is some info on the commercial for anyone who would like to look into it's origins.
