Well that was a disappointment. Sony has released the extended version of their mysterious “Long Live Play” video and it looks like it’s just the first in a new series of ads celebrating us, the gamers.
After stepping through the door, the three soldiers are greeted by a horde of PlayStation mascots. Nathan Drake is talking to Lightning. Sweet Tooth is playing chess with Sackboy. Cole MacGrath, Solid Snake, Agent 47, Isaac Clarke, Ezio, Kratos, a Little Sister, Joe Mauer, a Chimera and quite a few more are milling around as well. And in the end, they all celebrate the one man who carries them through their darkest hour. Some dude named Michael.
It’s a neat commercial, but teasing an ad campaign as “something special” is just disappointing.
