1970’s Nintendo Advertising Is Straight-Up Rip-Off Mode

Back in the 1970’s, Nintendo wasn’t a console making machine. Naw, they made arcade games. Very similar to Space Invaders, but totally not a rip-off. Winky wink. Just keep walking. Unless you’re going to play. Then give them your quarters. All of them.


Before Nintendo made home console titles and hardware,  the company made, among other things, arcade games.

Behold, then, the might and majesty of Nintendo’s advertising, circa the late 1970s. In which the company releases clones of other people’s games (in this case Space Invaders), and is damn proud of it to boot!
