More In-Game Ads

EA Signs Agreement to Offer Dynamic In-Game Advertising on Xbox 360 and PC and EA Signs Agreement to Bring In-Game Dynamic Advertising to Select Titles describes more plans to insert advertisements into video games, as EA has signed deals with IGA and Massive for in-game ads. Interestingly, one of the titles to get this treatment will be Battlefield 2142, which is not only set on the battlefield but well over 100 years in the future, bringing into question how these ads will live up to the "realistic" part of this description:
The initial EA title to incorporate dynamic in-game advertising via IGA is Battlefield 2142(TM), developed by DICE in Stockholm, Sweden. Fans of the franchise will see new, realistic brand presence integrated into contextually relevant game environments across the platforms and across the geographies where they play. At least two additional EA titles will offer dynamic ad serving capabilities through the course of the agreement with IGA.

I think at least part of their plan with 2142 is to see just how far they can cram things up gamers' asses before the majority of us just give up on them in disgust (hardened Maddenites and devout Fieldmonkeys seem to be perpetually gagging for it and are well beyond repair by now)..

I've been done with these fuckers for a long time now.



Stop buying EA stuff
If you MUST have a taste of their crap, get it second-hand

I'm not even angry. I'm being so sincere right now, even though you broke my heart and killed me.

I guess businesses trying to make money is a new concept for you people. That is what a free market economy does.

Perhaps communism is more your style.

^^ Yeah, it's called unnecessary greed. In order to make more money, how about EA actually start spending some time and effort making their games.

It means that the menu will be even slower, and that the game will have even more ad-related bugs.

When they say "Dynamic" does this mean they are pumped real time to the servers while were playing the game? If so how much overhead in bandwidth will the clients use? I only have a 386 upload speed I cant afford using my bandwidth to generate stupid adds.

When you think EA has run out of bad ideas, they just bounce back and surprise you, yet again.
