    Other companies have done more.
    $40 million is no big stretch really.

    I also enjoy the commercials from time to time.

    Wow their comercials make me wanna puke. Nintendo has lost their intensity. They used to be intense(SM64, OoT, MM, etc.). They still have their legendary worth-playing franchises. Sadly their focus has shifted. It is now taking over the world with video games instead of pleasing the fan, the consumer. Their comercials make that blatantly obvious to me. Sadly I still need my Mario fix.

    Looks like Nintendo are putting in a lot of resources into their advertising, and it seems to be paying off. :)

    sony is also wasting sooo much more money in advertising, since everyone can see a "playstation" logo in every champion league or any other worldwide football much... :p

    by the way, here (Greece) there is no wii advertising by nintendo, but sooo much wii advertising by shops in radio, newspapers and magazines!!

    also a wii tennis championship in a few days with a wii and a ps3 as a prize!!

    Just to put this in perspective, Capcom spent $30 million just on advertising Lost Planet. $40 million in half a year is a drop in the ocean.

    advertising doesn't just mean TV ads guys...

    They have put on a ton of promotional events and other stuff than just tv ads.

    Chinese? Geez, it's Japanese, get it right:lol:. No, seriously, it's like calling a canadian mexican.:crazy:

    When you do consider how much profit Nintendo is making, 40 million is nothing. I bet the adds work on the "casual gamers" (the people who play brain age for you who don't know), as I doubt that they go looking up Nintendo on the internet.

    From what iv seen i think UK are lcuky with there ads they are much better in general than USA ones, imo.

    America has the wii would like to play, thing going on, (trying to introduce new players)

    while UK seems t be targeting to normal gamers, imo, with them mostly sponsoring comedy programmes, and some adverts,

    lol there is a brain training add right now
