I thought that commericial was pretty dang funny myself! And i think it did a pretty good job. If people want to know the specs of the xbox log on to the net...Just my 2 cents...however i see your point...they did not even mention the xbox...but I still think it did the job!:)

DenniZz...don't you get it, dude? It's a "teaser" commercial...Think of it this way:

How much more interesting is it to see a gorgeous woman in a bikini compared to seeing a woman just flat out buck naked?

My point is that "teaser" commercials like this start to create mystery...I find that it's a brilliant marketing plan!

Not only that, but, the commercial is funny as hell! :D

Yeah right.... the XBOX is coming out on the 14/3/02 so I can't think of how many commercials are gonna fit in that space, I'm with DenniZz81 it didn't show us anything, I mean I'm looking at the commercials on the US OXM disk and they seem to fit the bill quite nicely

Geez, Afro...come on now...I mean, you've heard of the XBox, right? And, I highly doubt that you are only one in the entire United Kingdom that has heard of it. Just wait and see, it will sell like crazy! :)

Yeah dude I've got an US XBOX so I know all about it but the commercial doesn't tell you a lot now does it, I feel I'll be the only one in the shop to buy PAL XBOX with commercials like that lol

Actually I saw that commercial and thought it was pretty funny too, but I do see your guys points on it. It really didn't show anything on the Xbox, but then again Maximus has a good point too (nice going buddy) that it is only a teaser commercial and once the day gets a little bit closer then I am for sure they will show a much more informative commercial. I think this one was shown to shock and not to inform.
