What the PlayStation Move ad campaign looks like

SCEE (Sony Europe) seem to be aware of this, and have used their blog to take you behind-the-scenes at the making of a PlayStation Move advertising shoot to reveal how they're doing it differently: "The idea was to film real gamers playing with PlayStation Move for the first time in a genuine fun home environment; not a pristine empty white box," aPS EU Blog post explains.

Turns out this means filming in an actual house and with models (and actors) who are also gamers.

A Sony rep says: "One of our agencies discovered this building... and it's actually someone's real home. It's a space with a great deal of personality and it's very PlayStation."

"We recruited many of the models appearing [today] through the PlayStation Facebook page, asking them to send a photo of themselves and tell us why they love PlayStation. We did it because we don%26rsquo;t want fake models feigning an interest in gaming."

We'll have to wait and see how much of difference this makes to the finished advert, but the published pictures probably give you a fair idea. It's a step in right direction, but we'd still love it if someone went balls out and shot one of these adverts in a messy bedsit with a bunch of unwashed, bleary-eyed GamesRadar editors cursing each other. That would be properly 'keeping it real.'

Not sure if it would be particularly aspirational, though.
