Killzone 2 ads shock Toronto
Word in this morning has it that Sony have been persuaded to pull in excess of 300 adverts from bus shelters and parks across Canada's Toronto metropolis, after the ads in question raised numerous complaints.
Apparently, school teacher Davis Mirza rallied support against the ads in question, complaining of a "menacing head with glowing read eyes" and of visuals reminiscent of "Iraq".
"My kids, who come from a lot of different countries, who have to experience violence, who basically come here to seek shelter and safety, that's the stuff they don't need to see," offered the teacher, on her reasoning.
A city councilor also raised a complaint, and Sony then pulled more ads - although the whole campaign finished shortly after this controversy, so Sony basically ended the campaign a little early in places.
