Firstly, you can see the video here.

It's really too bad that this isn't going to see the light of day on the TV airways. I think this is one of the best console commercials ever. Certianly appeals to the older 20/30 something gamer anyway.

Watch and enjoy, be sure to have your speakers on, not required to have them cranked. This is safe for work.

Cool commercial. Too bad it was banned. I'll bet it was fear of the T word.

Why on earth would that be banned? :huh:
"Are you a god?"
"More or less Toblaki. Does that frighten you?"
"I've met gods before. They collect chickens."
"We posess mysterious ways indeed."

I love the maintenance guy that fell from the catwalk!

Its banned from TV because there are too many pussies watching TV that would have a spaz if they saw that.


Edit: Actually, I don't think its banned. I think that the advertising people at Microsoft decided to just not air that at all for fear of the aforementioned people freaking out.

Of course the hyper sensative, PC crowd would have a fit over it, but screw them.

It was not the chosen one due to the extreme simulated violence. It makes New Jack City lool like a play toy. Microsoft would have be blamed for the "video games led to violence" theory. Which we all know it's the person that pulls the trigger. It's not the game's fault or the guns's fault.

BTW, i don't have a problem with it.

Good thing they banned that. The LAST thing we need is our teenagers dumping their guns and just start pulling out their fingers and going, "BAMM!" That would be horrible. Slap me mama, slap me harder. :huh:

What's next? Replacing the guns the FBI was carrying in Et with walkie-talkies? Oh wait, wasn't that done already in a remake?
