The PS3 and Wii ads in Japan suck

What does a fork, an electric outlet, and a factory have to do with the PS3? As far as I’m concerned, nothing. So why are the majority of the commercials, in Japan (and America too) all completely ridiculous? As a consumer, I do not care that a PS3 can explode rubix cubes, make baby demons, or make Japanese chicks get hypnotized by forks. The style of all the ads makes me believe that they are just trying to appease the fans that know what the system is all about already. They need to start focusing on the people that have no clue what’s going on. Plus why don’t they show any game play? People like pretty shinny things right?

A crappy Wii ad, and a couple of actual good ads from Japan after the jump.
