180 Amsterdam & OMD Scoop Grand Prix at EACA Euro Effies

180 Amsterdam and OMD were awarded the prestigious Grand Prix for their outstanding campaign “This is for the Players. This is PS4.” The campaign successfully launched the PS4 console against stiff competition from Xbox. The campaign’s objectives were to achieve market leadership and, in particular, to close the gap between market leader Xbox and PlayStation in the UK. It was also awarded a Gold Euro Effie Award. 

Usama Al-Qassab – Vice President Marketing at PlayStation, said: “PlayStation is delighted to have received the prestigious EFFIE Grand Prix award for the PS4 'This is for the Players' campaign.  The launch of PS4 last year was a defining moment in the history of PlayStation. Our Players have been central to every stage of PS4 console design, software development and communication plans and they continue to be our focus.  The task which we set 180 Amsterdam and OMD was to conceive and realise a truly electrifying campaign which would empower, unite and galvanize those Players, from the rookies to the veterans, all over the world. The Player response was unprecedented. PS4 has now become the fastest selling games console of all time.”
