Why did Sony pay for a Metal Gear Rising Revengeance commercial?

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.

Game will sell more then DmC and Next Castlevania.. Its also going to be amazing so why not promote it?

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.

SONY: Only Does What Nintendo Did

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.
