    I've spotted a Wii in movie Iron Man. (I won't say which scene because that involves a spoiler, if you should mention the scene use the spoiler box please)

    Why would Tony Stark have a Wii in his mansion?
    Nintendo funds Stark Industries?
    It's Pepper's?
    Tony is in fact a Nintendo fan?
    That may be a Wii-looking other device?

    My guess is it's Nintendo and Marvel advertising each other's stuff, but that's no fun =P so throw some wild guesses.

    You are reading too much into things ...

    It will simply have been placed there by a set designer ...

    Yeah, it's just a popular system. Lots of movies used PlayStations a while back.

    I was wondering why Tony got a Wii when he had Jarvis, hence this topic. (Mass produced entertainment system vs a computer program that even returns jokes)

    Because Audi, Burger King, and some other brand names were bluntly advertised I thought Wii was the same case [​IMG]

    Like I said, you were over-thinking it ...

    I dunno, I think you may be right. Why else would movies like iRobot advertise so many things? XD Or it could not be. We really have no way of knowing if Nintendo paid the producers to place a Wii in the movie. It's like Burger King in Men in Black.

    I remember Men In Black 2 a gold painted PlayStation controller to fly the ship.

    There is a big difference betwen product placement, and placing products ...
