I can see why you'd say it, dunno if it was derived from the sony ads or not. But god those Sony ads are good :P

Judging by those comercials, if they are steeling, they`re doing a really bad job of it.

Be honest with me now.
How high were you when you made the post?

never saw those ads, but man, they're pure marketing genius.

I just can't imagine the conversation that would've made it possible.
I mean honestly, why would anyone think that Nintendo needs to steal marketing ideas from Sony or Microsoft?

I don't care, the amazing thing here is:
 
They are ADVERTISING. Ubisoft is ADVERTISING a Wii game. ON TV. Next thing you know, the world will explode.

It's not so surprising.  They advertised the hell out of the Rabbids games.  They just don't advertise their good games, like Rabbids Go Home or No More Heroes. :(

I wasn't aware that Sony had a trademark on smarmy douchebag pitchmen.

Not really, it is probably closer to ripping off that GameFly commercial from a little while back.

No, that Red Steel thing is nowhere near the Sony ads. Nothing like them at all. 
The Sony ones are so much better.
