Nintendo Spends $4.5m On TV Ads In August

It has been revealed that Nintendo has spent an estimated $4.5 Million dollars on advertising for the month of August. If this turns out to be true, it would be more money than Xbox and Playstation. Playstation campaigns amounted to a total estimated figure of $2.5m and Xbox at $1.5m.

It will be interesting to see how things ramp up in the coming Holiday season as the release of XBOX One X is fast approaching while Sony will be pushing its hardware to the fullest. Nintendo has gone on record stating that it may be hard to find a Switch this Holiday season so let’s all just wait and see how this pans out. It has been nice to see a ton of advertisements from Nintendo products as the Wii U didn’t receive this much love when it was available.

More as it develops.

Europe Getting INSANE Metroid Special Edition…Rest of The World, Not So Much

Take a look at the two images above. One of these things “aint like the other”… Apparently, if you live in Europe, you are getting an INSANE edition for the new Metroid on 3DS if you pick up the special edition. The European version of the game comes with a bevy of goodies while the rest of the world will basically be getting a nifty box and a soundtrack. Don’t get me wrong, a soundtrack and a sporty box is cool in all….Just not “European Special Edition” cool!

Check it out above and let us know if you plan on importing.
