This ‘sexy’ PS4 commercial is actually so offensive that Sony had to pull it

PlayStation 4 Remote Play Sexist Ad

Sony has published a new PlayStation 4 ad on its European PlayStation channel, but pulled it rather fast (technically, the ad is listed as private) after realizing the commercial can be perceived as quite offensive to a certain group of gamers.
