Not what it seems at first.

This clip, along with a more recent video featuring supposed footage from a Siberian excavation, is part of a marketing campaign for the PS2 game Shadow of the Colossus. Both clips are hosted on the Giantology blog, complete with accompanying podcasts. It’s quite possible that the site itself is completely engineered by Sony, or is being temporarily “loaned” to them to add to the illusion of legitimacy.  In any case, it’s a clever concept, with exceptional execution and attention to detail, especially for a video game ad.  Bravo.

    I hear the camera and controls can be frustrating as hell for an otherwise fantastic game.
