Wii do not work at The Gap

Posted on Thursday, August 24 @ 19:40:50 Eastern by Ben_Silverman
While wistful game journalists praise Nintendo’s slick marketing efforts, we are having a hard time swallowing the happy pills. Probably because the people in these pictures just released from the Leipzig Game Convention scarfed them all.

This is good marketing? Showing gamers pictures of girls they can’t meet playing games they can’t see? Nintendo would like you to know that the Wii is for everybody, provided everybody is youthful, energetic and, possibly, jailbait.
 
As a curious aside, I was recently informed by a third-party inside informant who, as you might imagine, has hella information, that Nintendo requires all third-party screenshots to include pictures of people waving the Wiimote or explanations of such actions embedded in each shot. That’s why all these Wii screens have dorky kids superimposed in the corner.
 
Thanks for the friendly reminder about the gimmicky controller, Mario, but how about just letting the shots speak for themselves without spelling it out for us? Are you that worried about the obviously limited graphics? And am I thinking out loud again?
