More In-Game Advertising

THQ and Massive Expanding Boundaries Of Dynamic, New Advertising Medium announces further inroads for the company placing advertisements in video games. Obviously a boon for publishers, the release also takes the now familiar tack of touting the benefits to consumers:

1) Happy birthday!

2) You're right. It will never bring down the price of games. So long as people willingly accept the same price of titles with in-game ads they'll push the envelope as far as they can with it. I personally will begin pushing back if the ads ever so much as interrupt the gameplay experience. (Need For Speed: Most Wanted's Burger King billboard ads that fly by as I do 220 in a Porsche don't make me worry so much.)
