They don't even advertise their own games and yet they pay for a crappy commercial for this game? It's not even going to be a big seller here.

Konami and Kojima Pro. favor the Playstation and Sony and since MGR is getting some exclusive missions for the PS3 it only makes sense to show a PS3.

Cause Sony knows that having the Metal Gear name will ensure this game doesn't flop like Bayonetta. Had this been Bayonetta 2, on PS3 with exclusive missions, Sony wouldn't give a rats ass about advertising it because they know it would flop regardless....

North America. I can see the game selling more in Japan but it was surprising to see a commercial for it here.

The commercial itself makes absolutely no sense aside from some random guy having a cyber eye right at the end before the game footage. It just wasn't a good commercial.

Did Metal Gear Solid 4 have a commercial in the US?

The MGS franchise in NA is huge compared to Japan.

Yeah it did, as far as I can remember it was all straight up gameplay and cutscenes. No live action mixture bull. That was only good with Rachet and Clank.
PS+ has paid it's self for me. So from here on out I will refer to any new games as free.
