Play Station 3, otherwise known as PS3, is the third home video gaming console produced by Sony. Next to Xbox, PS3 enjoy popularity among gaming enthusiasts. Thus, it is going to be helpful in reaching more customers by advertising your products and services on PS3 as well.
Aside from gaming, in PS3 you can also watch movies, edit and upload videos and connect to the internet. Because of the usability and its popularity, Sony decided to open up the advertising platform.
Now, you can promote your products and services through PS3. The PS3 advertising platform is open for advertising agencies and companies, thus, you have to make sure that you can creatively set up your advertisement to give you leverage over your competitor.
It may help you to know that large enterprises and small businesses may take on this challenging but innovative way of advertising. Thus, in order for your business to be able to compete, you have to choose the right game that compliments your products or services.
Many PS3 players hate ads but there are others who loves to have them because of the real life feel of the game with life like advertisements. Of course, your mobile advertisement needs to blend well in the game if you are doing it in-game.
Now, to help you plan and implement your mobile advertising campaigns using the PS3 platform, here are some options for you to make your advertisement acceptable.
Choose how you want your advertisement to appear.
You may opt to play a video advertisement before the game loads. In this case, you are not hampering the experience of the gamers when the play begins. Of course, you can also combine this with in-game, it is your option.
Your advertisements may also appear on the upper part of the screen either on the left or on the right. Plan with the developer on how your advertisement should appear. Just make sure that it will not get in the way of the game. Otherwise, gamers will hate you and not support you.
You can also do your advertisement as a ribbon that runs below the screen. In this case, your advertisement needs to blend well because if it is covering a portion of the game platform, it may not look good.
Others are doing their advertisements like an item in the game. Like a billboard on the highway or an item that the characters would be using or going to.
Depending on the theme of your advertisement, plan how you would like to present your products and services to gamers. You may also brainstorm with the developer and ask how your advertisement will mix well.
Finally, if you can create an advertisement that will be exciting or it may be changing offers often, it will be good. If your advertisement is only done to get the word out about your business and that many of the gamers already know you, and that there is nothing new to offer. Then, your advertisement will just appear with no useful effect.
Advertising on PS3 is a nice variation from usual advertisement platforms; however, it has to be done right.
