Don't Let A Cyborg Interrupt Your PlayStation Game

The latest PlayStation ad is trumpeting this holiday season as a "good chance" to pick up PlayStation games and hardware. Retro superhero Kikaider pops up to remind a family of just that.

This is actually a Japanese pun as the character's name "Kikaider" (キカイダー) carries the nuance of "machine" (機会 or "kikai"). Here, Sony is explicitly using the Japanese word for "chance", which is said as "kikai", but uses different characters (機会). Oh, Sony, you're so punny.
