In-Game Ad Survey

IGA Worldwide announces the results of a survey conducted by Nielson that they claim indicates consumers like in-game advertising, a surprising conclusion that's the latest example of why folks distrust statistics:

One of the most important factors confirmed by the Study is that most consumers reacted positively to in-game ads: 82 percent felt games were just as enjoyable with ads as without. In addition, there was an average 61 percent increase in consumers’ favorable opinions of products advertised in-game post-play.

“The growth of in-game advertising, both current and projected, makes it an attractive medium for brands looking to reach hard-to-reach consumers,” said Elizabeth Harz, EA’s Senior Vice President of Global Media Sales. “This study solidifies what many in the industry have known for a long time: in-game ads are effective and well-received by the gaming community.”

I don't have a problem with in-game ads, as long as they are tastefully done and not distracting. It's all in the implementation. We already have advertising everywhere in our lives and there's money to be made - there's no point trying to act like gaming should be some special exception. All I hope is that it doesn't become as blatant as the shit in The Bourne Ultimatum.

See, this is the problem with attitudes like yours, you allow these adverts to slowly gain a strong foothold in gaming and when it is to late you will push back... sorry, to late.

I agree with the poster below, we started with skip able intro's like the nVidia ad at the beginning of a game, now there are Adverts IN THE GAME, and pretty soon loading screens WILL BE Adverts. If you don't like that then you need to start disliking what is happening TODAY.
