Ad Watch: Holiday Edition

White Knight and DSi Ware spotted

 

Here are a couple of station billboards I saw over the weekend.

First, from Nintendo:

I spotted this DSi Ware billboard at Harajuku Station on the 2nd as I came back from a failed attempt at Hatsumode (I was going to ask for world peace and a large screen LCD television, but the wait was too long).

The ad says "My DSi contains 'games that can be played a little'." "Games that can be played a little," or "Chotto Asoberu Soft," appears to be Nintendo's catch phrase for DSi Ware.

Only three titles are mentioned in the ad: Utsusu Made in Wario (which I'm still certain sucks), Chotto Magic Taizen and Tori to Mame. Hey Nintendo, drop the Wario from the ad and put in those fabulous Art Style puzzle games instead!

Next, from Sony:

I spotted this White Knight Chronicles billboard at Harajuku Station on the 2nd as I came back from a failed attempt at Hatsumode (I was going to ask for an end to starvation and a large screen LCD television, but the wait was too long).

This is pretty much the same ad that has been running for the past few weeks, even on ad trucks around Christmas time. Let's get some variety, Sony!
