Rumor has it that the PS4’s slogan will be ‘Greatness Awaits’ – recent trademark and ad leak would have us believe.
Sony trademarked the term last week. In and of itself, it might not mean much. However, Siliconera has a leaked ad scrip that also uses ‘Greatness Awaits’.
The script, which Siliconera has in full, certainly resembles PlayStation’s unique brand of surreal, high-octane advertising. It features a man walking down a road, talking at the camera and demanding the viewer not to be ordinary, afraid, or a slave to the past.
Around him buildings appear “increasingly damaged,” and the scene grows more chaotic as windows break apart, two people covered in yellow paint sprint past him, and eventually a crowd of followers fall in line behind him. It even features a “homemade flag [sic] painted with the icon from Destiny” being unfurled out of a window, and a “giant spacecraft from Killzone” flying overhead.
The ad closes with the man saying, “Who are you to deny greatness? If you would deny it to yourself, you deny it to the entire world… And we will not be denied.”
Then the words ‘Greatness Awaits’ appear on screen, followed or joined by ‘PlayStation.’
Actually sounds like a cool ad. Seems like a pretty cool slogan as well – suppose we shall see at E3 if that really ends up as the slogan for the PS4.
