Default Have you seen TV ads for Exclusives?

Where have you seen TV ads for an exclusive? What game was it for, and what were you watching?

We were starting to derail a topic in smackdown with another equally interesting topic -- sighting of advertisements for this seasons biggest exclusives. Usually, sony's game ads are pretty scarce if they exist at all, and MS usually leads campaigns that bring us new flavors of soda, soup, and other products.

However, I recently saw an ad for Resistance 2 while watching Fringe, and I saw a motorstorm 2 commercial last night during game 1 of the world series.

I have yet to see one for LittleBigPlanet, Gears 2, or Fable 2 -- and I'm especially surprised considering I thought they'd be making Gears 2 automobiles and houses by now.

Ya I thought we'd get Marcus Dew etc...

One commercial I loved was the Halo 2 commercials. "I need a weapon".

I know a Fable II one was on a few nights ago but I really wasn't watching the TV at the time. I am surprised though that there wasn't a Fable II commecrial played during HeroFactor on Sci-Fi but I guess maybe the show was really just one big commecial for the game anyway.

There was practically an infomercial for Fable II either last night or the night before last on Sci-fi...I was waiting for some terrible movie about a killer snake or something to come on at 11pm, and instead I got some video game love-fest..

I think x-box does a much better job at giving the viewing audience the perception that multi-plats are x-box exclusives...But I haven't seen much of a concentration by one or the other in regards to exclusive advertisement.

Uh, Fable 2 is exclusive to Xbox, is it not? What other multi-plats are you talking about?
