In a recent post below a New Zealand TV company “TV3″ recently ripped off a Sony Kevin Butler commercial.
The big guy himself, Kevin Butler, has responded, and of course in the usual comical KB fashion. Here were some of the sharp points:
1. No title for your guy? VP of Big Bigness? PS3 Commercial Tribute Manager? Details, folks.
2. The TV3 version was completely lacking in PS3 video game footage. Clips from Uncharted 2, MAG, God of War 3, or even clips of our upcoming releases Killzone3 and Twisted Metal would have really added some epicness to the spot.
3. The beard. I think it should have been longer.
4. I did like the slow motion effect at the end on the guitar solo. Way to plus it out.
5. Two-color mylar confetti > rainbow paper confetti. Just sayin.
At the end of his message is a thinly-veiled “we wont sue you this time”, which for the the giant company Sony is, may be a surprise for some.

It looks like we have word on yet ANOTHER PS3 exclusive to be talked about and shown at E3. Apparently these images are “Stolen” and of the unannounced title Motorstorm 3. It would be expected to be announced at E3, but it looks like if that was the case, its been spoiled by a leak.
Take a look at the pictures and let me know what you think!
Also something to think about:
-Would you of liked Motorstorm 3 be announced early in place of Socom, Killzone 3, or Infamous 2, to be revealed at E3? I personally would have.
More Leaked Images After the Break!
“Crytek has claimed that it’s NewYork-based FPS sequel Crysis 2 will bring an unbeatable new visual quality to the PS3″
Okay, so what do we have here. It looks like Crytek is really confident about their graphical job with developing Cyrisis 2 for consoles. Of course on the Playstation 3, we have already seeen some astounding visuals including Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain, and God of War 3. Despite what we all have seen and played, the lead Playstation 3 programmer Michael Glück is confident that Crysis 2 will exceed anything that has gone before.
“With each generation of game titles on PS3, usually every 2 years, the games improve significantly in its quality, mostly showing off in graphics,” Glück told Play Magazine. “I think with Crysis 2 you will see the quality bar being set at a very high level that games will struggle to excel. We’re aiming to set a whole new benchmark with that game for all PS3 games.” ………
