Commercial - Console sold separately?

Why do they need to add both the text and voice of "Console sold separately" to the end of a game commercial?

My girlfriend works at GameStop.

People are very, very stupid. Almost as if they have never done a transaction before.

You need to spell things out pretty plainly nowadays. Like the cup of coffee that says "content might be hot" or telling you that Red Bull doesn't actually give you wings. People like to sue for stupid stuff like that.

Yeah as mentioned above, that ridiculously expensive lawsuit McDonalds had filed against them because someone was given a cup of coffee without those slips of paper to prevent burning your hand, and they still grabbed it and burnt their hand. People need all the support they can get.

That coffee was actually legit too hot. The woman needed skin grafts.

@Blastroid Because people don't really know what the WiiU is, and if they don't spell it out, people might think it's some sort of uDraw tablet thing made specifically for Scribblenauts.
