Not cool :/

They're OK if done right. Like say finding a pepsi/coke/whatever bottle on the ground or a vending machine in a city area. Or a billboard with an AD as you're running through the city.

-Alpha2220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

Sure, that'd be OK

It'd also be OK if it kept DLC maps free.

bruddahmanmatt2220d ago

So long as they don't "mysteriously" double loading times so that we can stare at a giant banner for twice as long like what happened with WipEout HD.

jaosobno2220d ago

No, it's not goddamn ok! Why are there people that always bend over and take it?

Game is published by EA, remember, it's that gigantic gaming company that makes billions. I'm sure they don't need ads to help them fund BF3.

I_find_it_funny2220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

to a certain point it builds the realism, hope they won't cross the line

hope we can destroy ads, can't remember the tittle but there was a game lately with ads and you could destroy a lot of stuff but ads, and that was stupid

agree if done right i'd be ok but i still dont want a craving for coke or McDonalds while i play

lil Titan2219d ago

Burnout paradise has them and I dont think they are a problem. As long as it does not force you to see a ad when you start the game like what happens when you sign into XBL.

cemelc2219d ago

Thats cos you havent crashed to one of the billboards trucks, they sux, most annoying thing i have seen in a game.

Raf1k12219d ago

This is nothing new. BF 2142 had in game ads.

So that means that we get free dlc then or at least much cheaper as there generating more money...

solar2220d ago

not in this generation :P

Urmomlol2220d ago

What you mean like how Bad Company 2 charged you for new maps?

Oh wait...

StanLee2219d ago

@ Urmomlol

You make a good point. While people complain constantly about the cost of Call of Duty map packs, you don't see complaints about how EA and DICE monetized BFBC2's multiplayer. Hypocrites.

ddkshah2219d ago

I don't think you guys Understood urmomlol's post. He is saying how ea always gave free maps while only releasing the best dlc called the vietnam map pack which was the only dlc they released for the game. And no ea doesnt make billions. They had been on the negative side last year, but they are starting to comeback with a gem called the frostbite 2 engine. BF3, NFS the run, and the to be mirrors edge 2 :D that's why I like ea I like their games ;)

so kinda like burnout paradise?

hopefully this means a couple of free dlc packs...

Motorola2220d ago

They should put it during loading screens so I have something to stare at than the map loading screen. I wouldn't mind that but they said "in-game." Hope it is like Burnout Paradise and not in your face.

Shackdaddy8362220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

Nothing wrong with that imo. I'm guessing it will be like the alpha except all the billboards that show Battlefield 3 will show some type of add.

Fayulah2220d ago

Ya that would be awesome although what i really do not like are all those allowed server-ads that appear in Bad Company 2
