Counter-Strike Ads Q&A

CS-Nation (thanks Shacknews) has a Q&A with Valve's Doug Lombardi about plans to bring-in game advertising to Counter-Strike: Source: "We make these kinds of decisions with our entire community in mind, not just the people who play Counter-Strike. Our very first Counter-Strike experiment was actually a business-related one: Bringing the game to a retail audience when it was already available on the Internet as a free download seemed to the community like a pretty questionable choice — but it’s worked out well with the community becoming larger and stronger."

And another point to tack on to this is that the only potential of IGA is to detract from the game experience. That's not to say it's going to make a game suck, guaranteed, but we can say with certainty it's never going to make a game better. Its only potential is to be barely noticeable, or so noticeable it's a distraction and an annoyance.
