Sony’s PlayStation 2 Had Some Truly Terrifying Looking Ads (NSFW)

Remember the PlayStation 2, the most successful home console of all time. Back when the PS2 was still on shelves and going strong, Sony released a lot of truly bizarre looking ads for it.

These PS2 ads are highly reminiscent of the early PS3 ads, which evoked the same weird feeling and basically made no sense, except for having a symbolic meaning to the PlayStation brand. You can check out these ads in the gallery below, courtesy of imgur.

Note: Some of these ads are NSFW(not safe for work)

PlayStation 2 was the most successful home console of all time, and achieved worldwide recognition. It also holds the record for the console with the most software sales. Sony seems to have taken a different approach with marketing the PS4, and focuses more on the games instead of some bizarre looking world.

What do you think about these ads for the PS2? Let us know in the comments below.

    I think it comes down to the times we live in… The consumer is and wants to make way more informed purchases. In those days, those ads added mystery and intrigue, so the consumer wanted to find more about the product, and bought it. Today the internet is so prevalent, there is no mystery and intrigue. And it kills the effect of ads like that
