Creepy Xbox One Ad Says It's So Real You'll Bleed

As a video game aficionado, I often find myself staring at my consoles and wondering, "Why isn't this more real? Why isn't this more immersive? Why am I not bleeding right now?"

Fortunately for Real Gamers, Microsoft's latest Xbox One advertisement promises the features we really want, like sweat, blood, and terrifying hallucinations. Because if you're not seeing things when you stand up, are you really even gaming?


    "If it was anymore real, it would be real." Doesn't get more real then that.

      Yo dawg, we heard you like real, so we put some real in your real so you can feel reality while, ah forget it

      "What is real? How do you define real? If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain." - Morpheus

    That entire ad felt like a scare campaign for substance abuse.

      Or a South Australian Government ad warning against the dangers of obsessive gaming ... and then he goes into a casino and becomes a problem gambler.

    Best to buy a playstation then.......unless your a little self mutilating emo girl.

    Though if pain is now a selling point PC gaming still has then beat.......I still have a slight headache from trying to get sound to work on black ops 2.

    Ahh advertising... they rarely get it right but when they do... people still dont care.

    I get what they were going for but it came across more like a schizophrenic hallucination

    I thought confusing in game events with reality with a reason to stop gaming for a while..

    Awesome, just what we need. An advert about a guy who can't tell the difference between video game violence and the real world...
