German moms want Nintendo, says Amazon
May 13th is Mother´s Day and what better gift is there than a Nintendo DS? At least, Amazon Germany thinks so. "Mother´s Day! Bring your mom into the game" is the catchy headline that graces their front page and may yet convince millions of still undecided dads, sons and daughters.
By comparison, Amazon USA is much more traditional. Sure, there is one ad showing some tech gadgets (purple iPod, pink CyberShot and a cellphone), but nothing gaming-related. Other than that, it´s perfume, flowers and cookware.
What are you getting mumsie? Would you consider videogames for your old lady? Me, I have to think again, because mine got my old DS last year and is happily beating me at ´Brain Training´ ever since.
EDIT It seems like Japanese mums want a DS, too, according to Game|Life (thanks to Kotaku).
