Snake from Metal Gear Solid…Nathan Drake from Uncharted…Kratos from God of War. It’s a who’s-who of PlayStation gaming. In Sony’s new commercial for the PlayStation 3, an all-star cast of PS3 video-game characters get together in a pub, shoot the breeze and raise a toast “To Michael!” – the gamer that controls each of them and their adventures.
What a bunch of characters: Ghost from Call of Duty, the guy from Infamous, Joe Mauer, Solid Snake, Kratos and Sweettooth all make real “live” appearances in the commercial. And look: Even Sackboy from Little Big Planet is here – and he’s playing chess!
Not a single frame of video play is ever shown, just live actors with spot-on likenesses to the characters they’re portraying. In fact, when watching the commercial and hearing the modern day Indiana Jones, Nathan “Nate” Drake talk about his adventures, we get excited thinking about a possible Uncharted film. And even more so when you consider that we might see Nathan Fillion playing Drake in the Uncharted movie.
Creating your own video game characters or any type of character, even for film and television, is no easy task. In the end, characters need to be interesting and intriguing. Sony’s PlayStation video-game console certainly hosts a motley crew of characters. And it’s awesome to finally see these characters that we’ve controlled all these years come to life outside the world of pixels and polygons.
