[size=6]Who made a fake, but cool looking, PS4 promo video?[/size]
by John Callaham



On Sunday, what looked like a professionally made video promotion for Sony's upcoming PlayStation 4 console made its way to YouTube. Unfortunately, it appears that video was in fact an elaborate fake, but now the question is, "Who made the clip?"

The YouTube video itself shows various people staring into the camera, all of which have one of the four PlayStation button symbols in their eyes. The clip also includes brief glimpses of PS4 gameplay and even quick flashes at a version of the PS4 console itself.

It certainly looks like a video that could be made by Sony's marketing team but according to IGN, a Sony spokesperson is quoted as saying, "We did not produce or release this." That means that the console that was pictured in the video is not the real thing.

In fact, Sony has yet to reveal the actual case design of the PS4. The company declined to do so back in February when it officially announced the console. It's expected that Sony could reveal the final design for the PS4 during its pre-E3 2013 press conference in Los Angeles, which will be held on June 10, after Microsoft's own pre-E3 press conference.

What's wrong with the robotic PLAYSTATION female voice at the end of recent Playstation commercials?? Sounds horrible and atrocious to me.

Wow, that's a pretty good ad. I'd pay attention to it if it were a real commercial.

Nice advert though.

Bunch of eyeballs with shapes in them... The video could have used more shots of gameplay and such, but not bad for a fake I guess.

Also, I can't believe someone's criticizing the iconic voice of the robotic "Play-sta-tion"... :ermm:

Man this takes me back when commercials in the 90s use to imaginative while entrancing. Sony should pays these guys and use segments for the actual hardware.

Cute "ad" but the whole concept has a 90's feel into it.

The real question is... who cares?

By promoting this crap all you do is end up reporting the "fake" news that people create. Iphone rumors, The next xbox specs... xbox infinity.

I think a lot of smaller advertisers who want some free promotion make fake product adverts all the time. It is an easy, cheap way to show off your skills.

The company of the product mightn't hire you, but some other company might be impressed with your work and look you up.
