Choose your weapon

When you want to promote your latest console and its software, there's really no better way than to get a load of famous people to play it and take some photos of them. Nintendo adhered to this time-honoured strategy at this year's San Diego Comic-Con by gathering a bunch of TV stars on a yacht and forcing a Wii Remote into their hands.

Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Kevin Bacon (The Following and a load of Hollywood movies), Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) and Scott Wilson (also The Walking Dead) were all caught playing Nintendo games, as the photographic evidence below proves beyond all reasonable doubt.

Hopefully the sight of some famous faces "off the television" will encourage fence-sitters to open up their wallets and buy a Wii U.
