$60 xbox games cannot have this because people will not tolerate it.
With all the retards out there that have 360s (judging by the online experience), I don't think there will be all that much of an uproar over it.
I wouldn't care if they did it in a way that wasn't as ham-fisted as most of the product placement crap on TV these days. Being so blatant about it messes up the shows, but if they aren't blatant, then I guess the advertisers don't feel like they're getting the attention they want. Instead of making good shows and having commercials and maybe some discreet product placement, they just spam us with 200 reality shows that cost next to nothing to make and have ridiculous amounts of product placement on top of commercials.
Product placement only works in certain settings anyway. I'd be pretty pissed if they started trying to work Nike or Mt. Dew into Battlestar.
