It is cool, but it has PS2 style. The idea feels old somehow.

It's nice wallpaper. Like the visual, but I don't know why I should buy the game or the console.
Maybe I'm too old to understand the message.

Bad photoshop? Don't take it wrong dude, but it smells like envy a lot.
I think is an awesome photoshop and on top of that, I'd dare you to show me some pieces (don't have to be yours) that are not better than these, just as good as these ones.

Both pieces are awesome, but the style and visual isn't new, didn't surprise me for the idea. That's why i think he says it's 2004.

Great work. The idea takes those soldier and boxer executions one level up. Of course... the artwork of Salamanca is evident. Well done!

It reminds me of the PS2 stuff where the game character is praying to his god.

also like the photoshop, but the whole look really is 2004. The idea is great. A new dictatorship..the demolition of saddams statues in iraq in reverse. that´s what I see, and my view is perfect.

it's amazing illustration and photoshop but seriously, where the hell is the idea? too many ads these days rely on look and no concept. It's sad.

It looks little bit like Erik Vervroegens work, but very nice and beautiful.

I don't understand why this would make anyone buy a PS3. This concept of the little game characters worshiping the player could work with any gaming system, and the others are cheaper. Plus, the hand in the foreground makes me think Nintendo's Smash Brother's series - even though I know the hand is headed to the statue, it still looks like the main baddie from a whole other franchise.

The poster is very attractive, however.

What the heck?

You all can't seriously think this is amazing?

As photo shop skills go, this is pretty well put together. But your idea really needs to be strong, and since it's for Playstation I'd like to be surprised for a change.

Considering the client and product, I'm not that impressed.

Damn, i had no idea what this meant till i read Cullers' comment.

The art overpowers the idea.

The creative idea is bad ... worthy of a TRUCHO, the photo retouching done this badly (if you believe that the trout pay nothing is quite acceptable), the art has flaws as the depth of field that is not successful, the proportions of people in ups are poor, very noticeable in the hand of the giant statue seems to be built from plastic, the base seems to be sinking in the mud, finally there are buildings in the background with different perspectives, in a summary worthy of retouching a trucho.

La idea creativa es mala...digna de un TRUCHO, el retoque fotográfico esta mal realizado (si consideramos que por los truchos no pagan nada es bastante aceptable), el arte tiene falencias como la profundidad de campo que no esta bien lograda, las proporciones de personajes en primeros planos son deficientes, muy notorio en la mano del gigante, la estatua parece estar construida de material plastico, su base parece estarse hundiendose en el fango, finalmente hay edificios de fondo con perspectivas diferentes, en resumen un retoque digno de un trucho.

May be I don't know much history about WWII. What's the idea of the ad. It doesn't push me to buy PS3 after seeing this ad.

Greate idea and execution! Play Station create the game world, you play it, you create the world.
