The UK Advertising watchdog ASA have banned a Wii U advert as it claims it mislead consumers. The advert was banned because Nintendo implied that all Wii U games can be switched from your TV to your Wii U GamePad. As we know, this isn’t the case, as only a few select games support this functionality. The advertisement stated ‘Say someone wants to watch TV when you’re halfway through a game … do both, and everyone’s happy’. The ASA took the view that this was misleading and have since banned the advert in the United Kingdom.
Nintendo have officially banned legendary games designer Shigeru Miyamoto from expressing his personal hobbies.
Discussion based around Miyamoto’s past times has been banned by Nintendo, who claim an attempt could be made to develop an idea off his ingenious thoughts relating to personal past times.
