Is there a link between Soul Calibur V's pre-launch gold status and Ivy's mutant proportioned breasts gracing a Japanese advertisement?
Seriously though, nothing has been proved - the game isn't even out yet. This is an utter waste of an article. Still, nice pic.
In Dragon Age II every woman had implants and that sold way better than origins ... oh wait.
which ds game did you get that had a women similar to the breast size displayed here?
Who needed more proof?
Exactly what I was thinking. Hasn't this already been proven time and time again? Still though I do love boobs.
watch that for laughs , i thought it was relevant, make sure to watch it for at least 2 mins before stopping it
If sex sold as well is these articles suggest, every game would have half-naked women. The best selling games have few or no women at all. God of War has a strong sexual element, yet doesn't sell as well as CoD, Gears of War, or Halo.
"Sex sells. We all know that. But just how well?" Very well. and we all knew that as well.
well, very well said.
Maybe they just like fighting games... With jiggly breast physics.
I just can't help to roll my eyes despite this not being a surprise. I thought we could rise, and NOT be bought with breasts, butts, and thighs. I mean, they're nothing to despise, but this kind of marketing just needs to say its good-byes.
In a male dominated market? I don't know I think you're off a little bit.
Drooling over computer graphics lol Sad World
Everyone who disliked this Jerk off to hentai.
I do. Anyone who doesn't is a plebeian.
SCV would have a ton of preorders in Japan with or without this ad. Heck, the article even mentions that Namco Bandai gave the go-ahead to make the game based on vocal consumer demand. Yes, sex sells, but this particlar instance isn't really the best example of proving it.
lmao, this game has tons less fanservice than the previous games except for this add, this features the bayonetta character designs costume that she made for ivy, everyone Ivy's norm costume barely even shows any boobs. eitherway, DAMMIT stupid article on this site that is 8 mins worth of char creation footage is DOWN~!!!!!!!! wtf!!! Also i like how they say their boobs are unnaturally big. I guess some of the girls i know in real life have fake tits too even if they bounce like water balloons. also hasn't anyone heard of Hitomi Tanaka??? (That name is nsfw!)
Soul Calibur V proves it? Edward Bernays would like a word...
Let's face it, no one really cared until they showed this ad.
mutant proportioned breasts? They look pretty normal to me. No, really. Girls CAN develop breasts of this size without implants. It happens all the time. Why must people be so...obnoxious these days?
They think they have a right to, sadly.
Yes i find is this day and age most people that complain do it just because they can not because they feel it effects them at all. I find it annoying that ppl complain just because they can.
Exactly, while everyone rants and raves about the way women are portrayed in video games, no one seems to think about the actual women who might have the same body types as Ivy. How do people think they feel when they see articles constantly demeaning women in video games that are shaped like this? I admit, some games take it too far, but the people complaining about these things really need to pick their targets better. NB knows that Ivy is a popular character, so the advertising neither offends nor surprises me. As for it being a "Japanese thing" as the author suggests, remember BMX XXX? That game was made by Acclaim, a Western developer, not to mention The Guy Game, Leisure Suit Larry, and a lot of other games that tried to use sex to sell. SC is a good game, that's why people buy it, and Ivy is a much more complex character than a lot of people give her credit for. Just because she's "attractive" or "sexual" doesn't mean that she can't have depth as a character.
17 years from SC IV than Ivy is 49 years old. But she's still had the body of twenty years old. Lol, i luv immortal's XD btw, even without those nice boobs ad, i still interested for SC V :D
Well apparently Project Soul is staying true to there "proportions" that's one thing that hasn't changed, by all means I will be buying this game and have fun for what it is of course and take the female imagery as sort of a joke as usual. Now I don't have the same feelings about Dead Or Alive since Team Ninja mention there taking there females seriously. Now for most this may not mean nothing, but its one step close of taking female rendering (or roles) seriously.
Shit, i'd buy it.
Tell that to Showgirls.
well this is better for obvious reasons
ofcourse sex sells any article here with boobs on the thumbnail gets the hottest temperature the huge boobs helped mortal kombat sells and i can give so much more examples
