If Nintendo has chosen to not only pursue the Apple strategy of pretty white designs but also pretty white ads with a notable dearth of information, will a mainstream gaming audience respond? Try explaining the Wii-mote to your mom ... now try doing that with this image. Does the declaration that "playing=believing" communicate anything of value to a curious consumer? Considering the uniqueness of the Wii and its controllers, would Nintendo be better served with something more informational?
