A television advertisement created by UK retailer PC World promoting the PS3 has been yanked from the airwaves. GI.biz
reports the Advertising Standards Authority found the ad "misleading" because it claimed the PS3 could play all PS2 games. PC World retorted that the system can play a significant amount of PS2 titles -- and lost.
Now, if only 26 complaints can get the ASA to ban a Kane & Lynch poster
, we can only imagine how many rabid fanboys it took to ban this "misleading" ad. We've been unable to find a version of the commercial online, but if anybody finds it, we'll give thanks and place it after the break.
