UPDATE: TV3 plagiarises US-based PS3 commercial?

Friend of Game Console ButtonMasher has pointed out the uncanny similarities between a recent TV3 ad spot and that of a PlayStation 3 commercial that has only aired in the United States. Thanks to the power of the internet, however, the original ad and the alleged rip-off are here for all to see.

ButtonMasher and Game Console contributor Mriceguy first noticed the similarities back on July 11th, posting a thread on the ButtonMasher forums in order to highlight them. The thread was eventually followed up with a story on the main page once a copy of the TV3 advert was finally found on YouTube and the two could be compared. Take a look for yourselves:
