New Nintendo Wii Commercials

Postby Ian on Mon Nov 27, 2006 10:26 pm

Has anyone else seen the Wii commercials where two Japanese men drive up to a house in a tiny car? They bring a family a Wii and you see them all having fun, playing various games. It really makes you want to buy a Wii.

On a semi-related note, the PS3 commercials Sony is running are stupid. I have no idea what point they're trying to make.

Yeah that first PS3 commercial I saw with a baby doll in a room with the PS3 was actually kindof scary.
Are they trying to scare off consumers?

The Wii commercials do seem fun. :)

the PS3 commercials are all pretty scary.... make me not want to buy a PS3 because it'd feel like buying into some sort of cult. The PS3 commercial showing in theatres wasn't so bad though.

Man, forget getting the Wii. Watching the that video is fun enough.
A man has been charged after allegedly punching a 73-year-old woman in the face, breaking her nose and stabbing her in the arm with a corkscrew before hitting a second woman with a bottle at a wedding reception in the Whitsunday Islands.

I wonder how sensitive those buttons are on the Wii controls? I hope very sensitive!
