When the PlayStation 2 version of Purple Haze was released in the UK, the advertisements included a quote from the Official PlayStation 2 Magazine, "Napalm never smelt this good". Following several complaints, these ads were banned by the Advertising Standards Authority on the basis that they were "likely to cause serious or widespread offence".

Despite some additional complaints that the entire advertisement glorified war and violence, the ASA only prohibited the use of the napalm line which Take 2 apologized for and removed from subsequent ads.
