The DS releases ads just for female gamers

The DS is well known for attracting female gamers, and I am always for more ladies gaming. However, their new line of commercials leaves me with mixed feelings, one of those feelings being nausea.

The ads feature different actresses as well as the American Idol winner Carrie Underwood. It shows Carrie playing Nintendogs and Liv Tyler playing Brain Age. I am a bit disappointed that they chose those particular type of games. Pitching the fluff games to girls is getting a bit old.

I think it would be the perfect opportunity for the PSP to release a line of ads showing girls curled up in pink pjs slicing off the heads of zombies. Please, someone needs to give some advertising love for us serious female gamers.
