"User experience will come first" - Google on in-game ads plan

"In fact, in many genres, in-game advertising can add to the realism of the game enhancing the overall user experience."

The Internet giant was speaking in the aftermath of its acquisition of in-game advertising firm Adscape Media - for a rumoured US$ 23 million (EUR 17.5m). Google hopes this new technology and know-how will help offer advertisers and publishers new solutions and opportunities for their products.
