How The Japanese Media Dragged Nintendo Into The PSN Breach

The PSN breach is a Sony issue. But when the evening news in Japan wanted to explain how credit cards can possibly leak in a situation like this, it didn't use the PlayStation.

It used the Nintendo DS. PSN users and gamers will immediately spot the discrepancy, but with non-gamers? Japanese parents might think the Nintendo DS can leak credit card info, too!

Most likely, this isn't the intention, but rather, the news is using "Nintendo" like people say "Coke" for all cola or "Kleenex" for all tissues. The only difference is that the DS comes off looking worse.

    I'm really surprised. The ps3 is pretty ugly... but surely the ubiquitous ps controller could have been used to illustrate 'videogames'. Nintendo can at least take solace that their industrial design represents gaming!
