The new 3DS Holiday TV commercial is Nintendo's best work yet

GameZone's Matt Liebl writes, " It's no secret that I'm not a fan of Nintendo's commercials, specifically for its hardware. To be fair, each of the Big Three (Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft) are guilty of forced commercials with awkwardly placed actors trying to portray "real gamers." It's painful to watch, really.

The because it's Nintendo line is perfect. Essentially, you buy a lot of Nintendo products just because it comes from Nintendo and they make great stuff.

Nice advert, but not representative of the audience, Nintendo's not just for kids.

Agree, but you need to think of the advertising audience they are trying to market to... parents buying holiday gifts for their kids.

Excessively utilitarian commercials like this are the ones that I, personally, kind of tune out when they come on...

I know it's not designed for people like me, though.
