for the ea sports golf space and kart space. i dont mind them in home as all they do is ad a little colour to the place and show that people are taking home seriously!!

I wonder if these ads are in the game period or only when you play online? I ask because if they're only while online then they are probably update-able, like once that movie gets old a new ad will takes it's place. it's be weird to put the game in two years from now and see a really old movie ad...

EA said they were going to do stuff like this a while back though, didn't think it would be so in-your-face/invasive though.

Hey who used my picture without asking !!! Thats not

this is my first post so don't judge but whats wrong with in-game advertising

There's nothing wrong if it is done realistically, i.e. billboards in Burnout Paradise.

Now I haven't played Fight Night, but from the looks of it, this is just ads plastered on the screen. Not good.

One of the best things in Mercenaries 2 was destroying in-game billboard ads. They were both unintrusive and destructible!

So? EA has done that with all of their games.Nothing illegal with that

yes but they havent plastered a giant DVD cover on the bottom of the ring or random pics of avertisement on either side of the screen

Ad's don't bother me too much when they are implemented properly but this is just over the top. EA you have no shame.

Advertising in sports games is fine with me. As long as it doesn't seem too out of place.

Now, when I see a The Taking of Pelham 123 advert in my Battlefield 2142, that's just stupid.
