Sony's Latest Marketing Push: "Only On PlayStation"

For the last year or so, PlayStation 3 commercials have ended with a similar phrase emphasizing the system's many functionalities: "It Only Does Everything." In 2011, they'll be shifting gears to a new message that they want on gamers minds.

The new marketing slogan focus -- "Only On PlayStation" -- was revealed by Sony senior brand manager Scott McCarthy in an interview with Industry Gamers. McCarthy said that where as "It Only Does Everything" was a message focused on selling hardware, "Only On PlayStation" will be more about the software, highlighting such major 2011 PS3 exclusives as Killzone 3, Infamous 2, Twisted Metal, and Uncharted 3.

According to McCarthy, this year presents "the strongest lineup we've ever had." Looking back over that list, I find it kind of difficult to argue. Does the idea of Sony pushing these games that are "Only On PlayStation" make you happy to own a PS3 (or want to purchase one if you don't)?
