Remember in 2012 when Sony vowed their "biggest ad campaign ever" for the Vita?

Yeah, still waiting on that, Sony. Unless that Taco Bell promotion is what they meant...

They spent it all on COD and Assassin's Creed ads for holiday 2012. Their ads were playing on a lot of networks, more than I've seen them in the past.

I remember seeing a few of those ads, shame the marketing couldn't be spent on better games, but at the very least it's a step-up from this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBrhwUWSyDU

I think they might have hired some viral marketers to promote the vita on some message boards somewhere.

They just need to bring back Kevin Butler's commercials... I don't know why they killed them. Brilliant marketing campaign, and people all over where i'm from used to talk about them.

Avast, good luck convincing him to make ads for Sony after that fiasco.

I saw that after I posted haha. But Sony ended his character before it happened, since that commercial didn't air until late 2012, and KB hadn't shown up since the end of 2011. I don't know why Sony ended it, as they never stopped being funny and they always made me want to buy stuff... exactly what commercials are intended to do.
