6 No, no I play for me! {My new Nintendo DS}



Actually, I made another purchase this weekend that I need to tell you about. This may come as a surprise to those who know me, but I bought a Nintendo DS. It is sexy and white and as of now contains only one game, Brain Age 2, and I am totally obsessed.



Now, I believe very strongly that advertisements for the most part do not really effect me. Until this weekend the only exception has been Apple, which seems to have reached into my brain and figure out exactly what to say to get me to want to buy every new product they come out with. These new Nintendo commercials featuring America Ferrara and Liv Tyler can now be added to this list. They just looked like they were having so much fun, and I wanted in. After some post-purchase research I have found that Nintendo is targeting adult women specifically in their new campaign for the Nintendo DS handheld console by spotlighting the above mentioned celebrities. {There is even a site devoted to the cause: The I Play for Me Boutique} Well done Nintendo....and now I'm off to play some more!

i never thought these ads would work..if you want addicting, you should try animal crossing...and then say good bye to your friends and family cuz they'll never see you again. :P

white is pretty but it gets so dirty. :/ i wish i got the silver.
