Just saw the Metroid prime advert (dunno how long it's been around), but it's really brilliant, far superior to PS2 game adverts. Now all Nintendo have to do is get some good prime time slots.

*Sigh*

It was the most expensive game advert made and was also a test for the film (test shots).

The film's script is going ahead now and that Dark Angel chick will probably be Samus. :)

Apparantly it's been advertised down here as well.

Anyone remember the 64 add? Good old days...

PS2 Adverts an't that bad.

The problem is that for Nintendo, two adverts on Channel 5 are a "massive campaign". PS2 ads are all terrible, but they are shown most weeks on Channels 4 and 5, and big games put on at prime time on ITV. Nintendo simply don't spend that money on their marketing. Fair enough - they see game development as a better way to spend money, and they're right IMO, but it's difficult to persuade the public that Nintendo games are actually pretty good without spending a load more money.

i dont think the advert was that good

the game is amazing though

the ad wold have been better if they had used cut scenes from the game. as far as i could make out, they used a guy in the samus suit. and samus is super skinny, so a guy in the suit made her look all fat.
