    wow. PS360 you find some of the worst articles to ruin a perfectly good Friday. LOL. in all seriousness though, this would bury Sony. They made it through the whole security breach when PSN went down, but this would hurt them too much.

    If anything came of this my bet would be it would be for games that are a free service like Free Realms or DC universe and there would be an option to pay to remove it.

    To be fair, this was patented in July 2011 and we haven't seen any traces of it yet. Though if it goes through.... we're not gonna have a good time.

    If they start doing this, then everyone better do something other than complain on this forum. We'll need to form an online petition and stop supporting Sony until they change it.

    This is kind of just stupid, as ads dont make me want to buy something (maybe video game ads do), and it just interrupts the game. I could see in the beginning of the game, but not during gameplay.
    The soda ad was just an example. I'm sure they'd accept money from almost any company for their ads.

    And if a video game ad made you want to buy a game then ads make you want to buy something. You may not think they do, but if you go to the store and are trying to decide between two products, you're going to pick the one you've seen on TV.

    In all honesty, I can't see Sony going through with this. At most they'd put adds when you load up.

    My thoughts exactly.

    I know it sounds horrible (it kind of is), BUT what if this meant the game was free? Would that change peoples' minds? You know, like Hulu but for video games instead of tv shows.

    Hey, feel free to add me (Coconutz) on PSN!

    Something like this (interrupting a game to display an advertisement) will never be found in a paid mainstream game, it will be used in freemium titles.

    Given Sony's allegiance lies with Android, expect to see it there as well as maybe PS Home and their free-to-play MMO's.

    Pervasive advertising in games should be no surprise and nothing new for Android users. You already see this exact crap on both Android and iOS in games from Glu (among others) where a 30 sec video appears when you boot the game. It doesn't happen in-game, unless you watch the videos for additional credits to buy in-game crap.

    Fork over two bucks, the ads will stop. I personally won't play let alone buy any game that tosses up a banner.

    The only way I can see them doing something similar to this would be product placement in games. Think of the NOS energy drink vending machines in Homefront

    Speak for yourself dude... I have never bought a brand over another because of a tv ad. I cant say 100% but i know most often than naught, i bought a brand because of taste and or price

    As for buying video games, thats not a good example either. Idk if you have seen my list of trophies, but i buy anything with trophies off of craigslist. Again it comes down to price, availability, and other factors. So although a ad made me want to play a certain game, it didnt have anything to do when it comes to buying.

    I know you dont know me well, so thats why you made such a incorrect comment. Now you know...

    And i knew the soda ad was an example. I was lazy so instead of making up another example for the ad that interrupts my gameplay, i just stuck with your example. I find it sad a soda ad comes on and everyone goes out and drinks it... Is that why diabetes is rising?

    I won't believe it until it happens. You can link me to whatever source you want, I won't be convinced until it actually happens. Doesn't seem real enough to happen.
