Looks like this is getting serious now.

No Man's Sky

No Man’s Sky is now almost two months old, but the controversy around the game seems to have no end. Upon its launch, No Man’s Sky turned out to be a fairly enjoyable space exploration simulator- but in the end, the product was drastically different from what had been advertised in all the months and years leading up to its launch, prompting allegations of false and misleading advertising.

It seems as though those allegations may have some merit, because Eurogamer is reporting that the Advertising Standards Authority in the United Kingdom has launched an investigation against No Man’s Sky purported misleading advertising, with the complaints specifically focusing on the descriptions for the game on online storefronts, as well as the screenshots posted there- specifically, Steam. That said, if it turns out the complaints have any merit, then all advertising for No Man’s Sky, including the PSN Store page, and YouTube trailers, will be affected.

No Man’s Sky is available now on PlayStation 4 and PC. In spite of all the hubbub, it’s not a bad game- and if you went into it with curtailed expectations, you’ll probably find quite a bit to enjoy there.

    Can someone from UK clarify me if this organization is private or is part of UK government?? I know it said “Agency” but in other news is spelled different.

      Never played NMS. Never planned to. Not my kinda thing. But the Kinect was a huge lie. Are you now defending that lie also? My goodness, you have no shame. You should run for political office. The RNC would love to have you on the Trump ticket.

    They’ll delete the video off Steam and then Xgimps can go back to pleading for games.
