Sony published a new ad for its PlayStation Vita on its European PlayStation YouTube channel on Friday, but shortly after, set the video to private once its existence was expectedly criticized due to it being filled to the brim with sexual innuendos.

Missed opportunity Sony. You KNOW that a different demographic needs to start buying Vita this holiday..

I liked it though :)

Sure you didn't pull it out?

I like how she picks it up and presses all the buttons at once, like the person who has no clue how to play fighting games and mashes every button imaginable.

Funny ad, but not sure that's going to move systems lol

IMO most ads are bad so I dont see why people were so critical about this one (which made me and I guess many others smile). At least Vita is not ignored (even if they d better focus on it as a handheld and remote play as a +)

pixelsword3377d ago

After that "penis-thumb" ad Sony made, I can't see anything else worse than that. :)

Muzikguy3377d ago

That does it, I need a Vita!!

mmcglasson3377d ago

I enjoyed the add. I'm not sure if Sony should have taken it down or not.

Who thought this was a good idea?!

MazzingerZ3377d ago

It was meant for Europe, I don't see the big problem, at least not in Scandinavia, nudity is natural and shown on TV daytime, PS Vita is for rather mature gamers so I think it's a cool ad.

I don't see a problem either.

Anything slightly controversial, gets media coverage and gets people talking.

@donthate

Learn what sexism is before throwing that word around trying to be accepted...

IIZANGETSUII3377d ago

"PS Vita is for rather mature gamers" LOL ok

"I don't care if your handheld is a great device, your commercial is sexist and ostracizing!"

"PS Vita is for rather mature gamers so I think it's a cool ad."

SCEE, the same division of Sony that ran this
"controversial" ad, doesn't think so their regular campaigns: https://www.youtube.com/wat...

Ads targeted at kids are the only Vita native (not a PS4 peripheral) commercials they run.

Its crude, uses sexual humor, and has a very attractive woman in it.

Oh sorry you asked what was wrong with it... Nothing... nothing is wrong with it. Something is wrong with people who feel the need to shut down anything they seem to disagree with.

Pretty soon every ad featuring a woman will have to have a disclaimer at the bottom *No female was harmed or forced in the making of this advertisement.

People need to live and let live already.

Dee_913377d ago

Some people find crude humor tasteless.. doesn't make them wrong its just their opinion.However trying to get this ad pulled is a bit much.

Drekken3377d ago

The PC crybabies have to ruin anything slightly offensive. Sony could have released a montage of head being blown off and that would have been fine... anything sexual is taboo. Lame-Os.
