…The Sony Bravia-drome is impressive?


Sony’s Bravia ads have never failed to amaze (see Bunnies, Pyramids, Dominos, Paint and Balls) so it should come as no surprise that their new ad is no different.

Called the Bravia-drome, it’s the world’s largest zoetrope that Sony built to show off the smooth motion of their 200Hz Motionflow technology.

…It’s TGI Friday: Matt Sandorf: Journey to Endless Entertainment?

Matt Sandorf: Journey to Endless Entertainment

Matt Sandorf: Journey to Endless Entertainment is an advergame for Sony that lets you guide Matt point-and-click style through a futuristic spaceship.

Despite being an advertisement, Matt Sandorf is actually entertaining, and looks great as well. The gameplay has a very smoothed over, top down style to it, and the cut scenes are all done as rather unique, charcoal style drawings.

The game is also surprisingly difficult, and doesn’t let you get away with much, though it does contain enough twists, turns and jokes to keep you working your way through it and intrigued along the way.

If you get stuck, there’s a walkthrough available from Jay is Games, but I encourage you to stick with it, because there are few advergames that are this rewarding.

…Sony wows once again with Domino City?

Domino City

A few days ago, I was wondering what the next Sony Bravia ad would be, and then as if on cue, one arrived!

Called the Domino City, it features hundreds of colorful dominoes falling through a city in India:

And like all good ad campaigns should, there’s also a behind the scenes if you’d like more info on how this was made:

…The Xbox should be slim?

Xbox Slim

Since Microsoft went straight from the Xbox to the Xbox 360, they didn’t stop to do any revisions to the original like Sony did to the PlayStation 2.

However, this didn’t stop one crafty modder from making his own “Xbox Slim” project, and using it as a media center that can play games.

Xbox Slim And Xbox

The Xbox Slim cuts more than half the weight from the original, weighing in at just four pounds, and adds in advanced features like a DVD/CD-R combo drive, 60GB of onboard storage, a built-in Wi-Fi receiver, and a built in receiver for the Logitech wireless controller.

Xbox Slim Details

Along with the hardware revisions, XBMC has been added for media center capability, and SNES, Sega, NeoGeo, and other emulators have been added for classic gaming goodness.

It might not be certified by Microsoft, but chances are, that isn’t exactly a bad thing.

…Sony created a Foam City?

I’m a little late to the party with this one, but if you haven’t already seen it, be sure to check out Sony’s latest ad, called Foam City.

This one follows up the paint, bunnies and balls ads, and though I think the others were better, it’s still rather impressive.
