PlayStation Move ad a real punch in the face


It's a Christmas miracle! The world has reunited me with Britain's Ad Standards Authority, as the group has banned a "violent" poster for the PlayStation Move controller, based on complaints from eight people. Just like old times. And speaking of old, the poster itself (whose punching image is an oblique reference to a new game called The Fight: Lights Out) looks like concept art from Pit-Fighter. What out-of-touch cat lady put this thing together? Video games haven't looked like that in 15 years, much less on a console that doubles as a Blu-ray player. I hope that was the basis for some of the complaints. Full ad after the jump.
