Sony has pulled a controversial PlayStation Vita ad from its YouTube, The Verge reports.
The ad starts with a porn-staresue doctor seemingly accuse the viewer of chronic masturbation:
“I know you’ve already done it today and I bet you really enjoyed yourself,” she begins in a sultry voice. “How many times did you do it yesterday? Are you afraid you’re doing it too often?”
Then she goes on to list on the places the viewer likes to do “it.” Eventually she pulls out a PS Vita and it becomes clear that she’s actually been talking about the the remote play feature the device shares with the PlayStation 4 and Xperia Z smartphone.
Business Insider reports Sony first posted the now-pulled ad on its European PlayStation YouTube channel on Friday, but it has been reposted elsewhere. You can watch it below.

All that will change in a couple of days when the PS4 lands in the outstretched arms of millions of clamouring gamers, but here’s a head-start cheat sheet of 20 things you might not know about the newest member of the PlayStation family.
This will be me after just the first couple of hours. Not a good sign.

It seems you may get to see more of Ellen Page in her new game Beyond: Two Souls than anyone had intended as “nude” photos from the Quantic Dream title have leaked online.
The people have spoken. No, they’ve screamed, shouted, harangued and threatened.
And, it seems, Microsoft has listened. Colour me 360 shades of shocked.
