Playstation 3 Advertisement too violent

A recent advertisement depicting a seriously hurt man fighting over a Playstation 3 gaming console was deemed too violent for public consumption.

Stocks are not limited, and the only ugly thing about PS3 sales so far are the number of consoles that are(n't) being sold.

I just logged on to one of my other accounts to find that Virtual gamer tried to ban my umbagumba account for exposing him for the idiot he is, and this further proves his retardedness. How FN pathetic do you have to be to try to ban somone because your proven to be retarded? virtual gamer is a b!tch. You will now get it a lot worse.

Microsoft has strange adds too just not so strange as the baby thing.

"saying that the advertisement is irresponsible and offensive as it encourages crime and violence" This comming from South Africa is a little Hypocritical considering it's history of the past 30 years.

Whats realy funny is they say the advertising is offensive but not the violent video games themselves. Then again wasn't South Africa occupied by Germany? and look how strict Germany's laws about video games are (I could be wrong about the South Africa thing, I'm reaching far back in my memory of high school)

lol, good point. How could anyone take there word for it when theyre country is full of hate, war, and racism. Maybe they should worry more about the reality of their country then a video game commercial, which I also believe isnt violent at all.

I dont believe South Africa was ever occupied by Germans. Maybe your thinking Poland? France?

Although I do believe the British had a small war with a group of people immigrated from Denmark called the Boers.

Hmm ?
I havent seen this, but even me, as a Sony fanboy will admit that sounds a tad...over the top.
The fact is, the PS3 console isnt selling like hotcakes, and stocks are not even near 'limited'.
Bad idea this advert.

I wouldnt ban this advert because of its violence, but because of its contradiction of facts...
