When people post threads with the title like that
'Where is/are *something*

I always get the erge to post that foul picture of that bloke holding his arse open
that everybody has seen at some point or another on the internet...

But I dont have it, and dont want to have too look at it ever again..
So I don't.

But I still think it would be the perfect reply.

Well, I think they realise that the Wii is already selling enough, no need to advertise something that's sold out. I see PS3 ads ALL the time though, Sony is probaly worried. I still dont understand those commercials though, why dont they show gameplay or something, I dont care for a crying plastic baby.

Yeah really, commercials for next gen systems seems like a waste of money, Xbox360 sold out, PS3 preorders sold out, Wii sold out... theres really no need for it.

I agree the baby doll commercial is absolute crap. The egg one is quite the oddity too though not as bad as the baby. The one I really do like is the rubik's cube one. They need to do more like that.

And I agree, I would love to see some wii adds but I don't think it's really required since it will most likely sell out anyway.

According to the fans here Nintendo has set a new trend. *If your product is going to sell bucket loads there is no need for adverts.*
Apple have announced they will follow suite with the ipod.

Nintendo is on the heart of everyone we don't need an ad to tell us that!

Wii Commercial Airs Tonight
The first in a four-part series hits during Dancing with the Stars.
by Micah Seff
US, November 14, 2006 - Nintendo fans across North America have been wondering just what the Big N is up to when it comes to traditional television advertising for the Wii. While there have been plenty of viral marketing efforts on Nintendo's part, the Wii is less than a week away and there are still no television advertisements to be found.

All of that will change tonight when the first in a series of four 30-second commercials will air during the performance finals of ABC's Dancing with the Stars. The ads feature two Japanese men who visit homes across America and declare: "Wii would like to play." The ads make great pains to highlight the motion-sensitive capabilities of the Wii Remote.

"The fact that we have people all but begging to see Wii commercials demonstrates the huge amount of interest in our new system," says George Harrison, senior vice president of NOA.

The commercials will also be posted on Nintendo.com and Youtube.com. Viewers can see all four of them together as a two-minute film on MTV2's Sucker Free on November 15. In an effort to further the goal of bringing the Wii to the non-gaming masses, ads will air on ABC, NBC, Comedy Central, BET, USA, TBS, Discovery, Animal Planet, ABC Family, Nick at Nite, Sci-Fi, TLC, Fox, The CW, MTV 10 Spot, MTV, MTV2, MTVU, Adult Swim, Fuse, Si TV, The N, VH-1,and Black Family Channel.

Prior to this, Nintendo had focused on viral marketing efforts such as the Nintendo Fusion Tour and the Wii Ambassador Program designed to give people hands-on play time with the console. Even as the traditional marketing campaign kicks into gear, hands-on events such as these will continue into 2007.
