Nintendo made a big thing about the Wii U being able to switch gameplay from your TV to your Wii U GamePad. It seems that this function, rather than being universal, is limited to a select few games. It is not something that is enabled by default, rather it's something that games developers have to program into the game
UK Advertising watchdog, the ASA received a complaint about this and are moving to ban a TV advert that implies that this is a universal function available to all games. The ad stated 'Say someone wants to watch TV when you're halfway through a game ... do both, and everyone's happy'.
Nintendo in their defence claimed that the advert showed many features of the Wii U, not all of them universal and that consumers would understand that these features would vary from game to game.
The ASA took the view that, as this was a new console consumers would not be aware that the ability to switch gameplay to the GamePad was not available in all games. The ad implied that this was a general feature of the Wii U console and concluded that the ad was misleading.
