and i have to ask, why are all these new game commercials live action?

both microsoft and sony are doing it, and it's annoying. it feels like false advertizing, or that they fear showing actual game footage.

Some of the Halo live action trailers are amazing. I personally really liked the Halo: Reach deliver hope trailer.

Nothing new but it is generally a bad sign when the developers don't put gameplay in the commercial... Like they are compensating for a lack of something...

I don't know. That's like saying it's a bad sign when developers use CG for trailers.

Nothing new. There's already tons of gameplay videos online. They just show the live action trailers to build hype and get people checking into the game.
