Sony does it again.

PSP fansites are popping up all over the internet. The demand for the portable system is at an all-time high as enthusiasts can't contain themselves. Rather, they opt to start seasonal fansites evangelizing the portable's many benefits not to mention its huge list of AAA and exclusive games. PSP fansite All I Want For Xmas is a PSP is no different. It was started by two "kids" -- one of which raps and looks disturbingly old for a kid -- in an effort to entice their parents to buy them a PSP for Christmas. Furthermore, the site only uses lower case letters, always references "two" as "2," embraces hip phrases like "here's the deal," publishes fake user-generated comments like "this is the best site ever" under the alias of True Gamer, and posts homemade rap videos full of stage props and trite "izzies." The above video is sure to reach the top spot on YouTube by tomorrow. It just screams street cred.

 

The only problem is the registered domain where this lame video is posted is owned by a marketing company called Zipatoni, presumably one hired by Sony. And we can't think of an individual stupid enough to post such a video only to get laid into worse than the Star Wars kid had it. I won't even quote the atrocious lyrics for fear you might throw up a little in your mouth after hearing. You almost had us, Zipatoni. Almost!!! Dense marketers usually do an excellent job in fooling ignorant consumers with such authenticity.

 

 

I'm insulted completely. To think they think we're all talking in l33t and acting like wiggers....how uninformed can they be?

 

 

Another embarassing moment for Sony. This just has not been their year....wow..

 

I'm just hoping this is not true, but it probably is.

I thought every 20 something made videos that asked their parents for electronics.

 

Maybe I should hold back my video; "Wii are the world".

Yeah, how dare they market so discreatly. They should leave their boring ads on tv. and like ummm, not make sites that intrest some people a little bit more than a tv ad.

You guys are influenced by marketing too much. If you're not going to buy Sony, do it for the exploding batteries, or the dead pixels, or the lack of games, or the poor online experience, or the expensive prices.

I'm not against Sony, I bought a PSP on launch day, midnight, and I'm getting a PS3 next spring.

 

I'm just a bit insulted by this marketing scheme...will it work? Probably. But is it still really stupid? Does this tarnish their image even more? Yeah.

Well yeah i'll probably still get one, I don't pay much conscious attention to marketing, but it's just not good to see a company resorting to such stupid techniques. Hell, the fact it's all "omg street cred" is bad enough on it's own, let alone made up stuff.

I seriously doubt such an "ad" would work on even a 10 year old~

Everything Sony does is so... wrong. If they lose this console war (which they'll lost, no doubt) is because of their own actions. From the £425 price to this... crap of an "ad". *gasp* dozingoff.gif

Oh very, all you had to do was look up who owned the domain (out of curiosity mind you) mercie_blink.gif

 

And yes, stupid sells. People are intrested in people making fools of them selves (note the starwars kid) When people watch the video people start thinking, hey I kinda want one too.

Its not about how people really act, its about what catches peoples eye.

Yeah, I totally agree with you man. I remember watching that star wars kid and thinking to myself that I wanted to have one of those guys for christmas.

 

Damn them for only making a "limited" number.
