yeah Wizziokid is right, product placement is EVERYWHERE in games nowdays -_- even MGS4! xP

darthv722923d ago

almost every type of game has some sort of product placement advertising in it.

A lot of people get mad about product placement in games, but to me, it always added to the realism factor. Plus, an ad might be informing you of something you might be interested in anyway!

Who the hell is interrupting my kung fu?

lzim2924d ago

yeah but these are placements not full blown ads. unless i read it wrong

lzim2924d ago

I'm confused,

1, those avatars look much taller than the squat midgets on the dashboard
2, shouldn't product placements mean MS is making money through advertisement and so be able to sell this software cheaper (I loled)

Product placement is everywhere. Its like when M&M candies missed the boat in 82'. They were asked if they could be used in a certain movie involving a "cute" alien and refused.
Reeses Pieces sold like hotcakes after E.T. came out.....

The Atari video game based on ET didn't do so hot though. Isn't there an entire landfill filled with those games somewhere?

DuneBuggy2923d ago

Yeah.I read about that somewhere years ago. What a truely awful game that was.
