Sony takes down controversial PlayStation Ad

sony playstation ad

Sony’s Europe division produced an ad for the PlayStation 4 Remote Play feature that allows them to connect via the PlayStation Vita and Xperia Z, and let’s just say it was not met with praises. It featured an attractive female doctor talking seductively, saying that the viewers are probably feeling ashamed of “doing it,” implying that they are masturbating. The reveal at the end is that everyone’s using the Remote Play feature. Shocker!

Business Insider has called the ad sexist, and Boing Boing has said that the ad was “a ship burning faster than it can sink.”

What do you think of the ad?

The ad is similar to the Modern Warfare 2 ad that debuted in 2010.
