WipEout HD in-game ads return, still affect load times

Joystiq writes: Fans of Sony's blistering anti-grav racer WipEout HD will no doubt recall the game's update to version 2.0 back in August. That's because one of the additions came in the form of advertisements that would play during race loading screens. Having to see ads in a game you've paid full price for is one thing, the fact that they nearly doubled load times is another. Thankfully, Sony responded to an outpouring of ire over the ads by yanking them. Well, as we were warned last month, they're back. (PS3, WipEout HD: Fury)

Many WipEout games
have had ads...

Hell...RedBull was a major early advertiser in one of the WipEout series.

You seem to be implying that other systems don't have ads in their games.

May I introduce you to Massive?

affect loads time? i hardly noticed it.

these adverts do not appear every time. just sometimes.

i'm perfectly happy with the way adverts added into this game.

it dos but only a little like 5 seconds or so but if you play a lot it adds up and personally I'd like it taken out and If people complain like last time they'll probably remove it again.

Hey look! It's Joystiq b1tching about a PS3 title again!
Now there is something you don't see every day... Sorry, but Joystiq can sit and spin on a joystick for all I care. I tried listening to one of their pod casts and let me tell you I have not heard a pod cast that made me want to puke before that... They took that cookie hand and fist. Pathetic.

Ive only seen the fat princess ad. how does joystiq know it affect load times? I didnt. did they really take the time to use a stop watch and race it? wow, can you say no life low life?
