On In-game Advertising

There's a Massive Incorporated profile on BitMob with a look at the growth of this company that provides in-game advertising. The article analyzes the firm's growth, and expresses some cynicism over claims that in-game ads help subsidize development and add realism.

Adds realism? What? My first encounter with in game ads was in Planetside, on a far-from-Earth planet in the distant future. I had to rush back to base to re-arm.

Plastered all over this non-Earth future base were ads for Deuce Bigalow 2.

It felt so real! It wasn't jarringly out of place at all. On a side note, that was when I stopped playing Planetside.

I'm guessing those are the MMO gamers that wonder why women don't like them.

When we talk about marathon gaming sessions, pooping in a sock is the first thing that comes to the minds of many gamers.

What. The. Fuck. ?

So there's no need to wait for a version of AdBlock Plus for games?
