PlayStation Move Ad Throws a Few Too Many Punches for the Public Eye

After fielding complaints about a poster promoting a new game called 'The Fight: Lights Out,' Britain's Ad Standard Authority has banned the PlayStation Move ad above.

The complaints deem the ad to be too violent, as the campaign showed a man in three different poses ready to throw some massive punches. His final pose takes a shot at a man whom he's placed in a headlock. The banned PlayStation Move ad is potentially harmful with its violent imagery to gaming children.
