Do the NPCs still randomly levitate every now and then? Even years later I noticed they hadn't patched that out

Honestly I loved the PS4 ACs. I'd love next gen ports of Black Flag, Unity and Syndicate

Technically, we wanted more money.

Call of Duty already does this; Ubisoft and other game companies will follow suit and explore similar approaches.

Congratulations, A technical error In displaying ads while playing.
EU consumer law needs to chew these assholes a new one.

TheColbertinator208d ago

At this point the entire EU commission must be bribed

The big note here is the built in ad-displays during gameplay and not that they happened. Start screen, cool. Gameplay? That shouldn't ever happen.

"Start screen, cool."

Uhm, no. Start screen very much NOT cool either. There really need to be new laws implemented banning these companies from shoving ads down out throats at every opportunity they see fit.

For free to play which is a market of games needing monetization through different venues. In those games this stuff is fine by me. But when you pay ..20, 40 ,60, or $70 that's when it is not okay to any degree.

jznrpg207d ago

Start screen not cool either

walken7208d ago

They're testing the waters, vote with your wallets.

porkChop208d ago

That's not a technical error. An ad can't be displayed mid-game without you creating the code/tech to make that possible first.
