PlayStation's Game Plan: Scale Ad Rates for Videos

With the release last week of a video game called Pain, Sony Computer Electronics America moved one step closer to having what would amount to metrics for ads embedded within video games on its consoles.

The story is too old to be commented.

It all depends on how adds are placed in games. If your in a fantasy world like GT or GTA billboards and signs that add to the games reality are fine but once you start seeing popups in games like Final Fantasy or R&C to promote real world products it draws the line.

Does it lower the cost of the game experience? If it does then it should also offset a portion of the games value.

Hell, it's worth a shot... If it works here, it'll work better in the future on bigger things. More power to 'em, I say.

more ad's = cheaper games?

if so, im all for it as long as its tasteful.

As long as I don't see any army ad I am fine with this.

all it amounts to are in-game billboards advertising Buzz (a fun party game, btw).
I don't mind that at all.
If you don't like seeing the billborads, just launch the "dude" into them and smash them to pieces.

PS - anyone else been able to hit the fan vent in the subway and got spewed out the other end?
Or get bomb-launched from the bottom of one of the chimneys?
Much, much fun.
