PS3 Long Live Play Campaign Brings Video Games to Life

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

Sony Released a new ad this week on YouTube that has earned a lot of buzz, and with good reason. Bringing together favorites from PlayStation games past and present, Sony shows us what they could look like in real life in a live-action commercial. The video brings the various characters together to celebrate Michael, one of many PlayStation gamers. In essence, Sony is paying tribute to its customers in a really cool way. Check out the video above.

I thought it was nice to see Kratos, Nathan Drake, Cole, and Ezio in live action, having spent so much time with their in-game personas. Even Sackboy was a nice touch. What do you think? Did they leave anyone out? Who was your favorite character? Let me know in the comments.
