    Default Ads in PS3 Home

    PS3 Home will be (to some extent) an experiment in in-game ads and promos by developers and sponsers. It will be an important indicator of what gamers can tolerate when it comes to advertising. Any feedback on this issue?

    Less QQ more pew pew.
    Ads popping up in an appealing environment. Shocking and revolutionary.

    I would be pissed. The PS3 and games to go with it, cost a pretty penny. So,if I am sending the cash for it, I don't want ads in the freaking game.

    Imagine, you are playing MGS 4 and you have to stop Snake from saving the world, so he smokes a pack of Kools... Weak.

    It depends on the ads and how well the fit an blend in. I wouldn't want to see any non game related ads.

    Snake seems more like a Marlboro man to me.

    I remember many ads from other games like def jam ff ny in which there were ads in underground tunel. Its ok as long as it isnt shown in every moment possible. It also should be ads which you see but dont care about or think about it yet you get the advertisement.

    If the ads in games are done in a way that's non-intrusive or even adds to the setting of the game (i.e. billboards and posters in a city that don't look out of place, or ads lining the walls of a subway like they did in Hellgate London) then I don't mind. If the ads are intrusive, then I don't like it.

    Honestly, I hate adds whereever I see them. Know that NOTHING is sacred. NOTHING. Everything, sooner or later will be form of advertising. I hate adverts outside, adverts on TV, in magazines or on the internet. But no matter how intrusive or apparant an advert is I've learned to live with it and ignore it like anything else. Doesn't matter where it is, I'll ignore it and carry on enjoying myself.

    But what if they say, that by putting the ads the games would gost 1/3 less or even 1/2??
    Seriously? I don't care.. I don't want to hide from ads, they are everywhere nowadays..

    There are thousand of games already that have some "fake" advertising to give some depth.. why not use real ads, cheap the cost of the game for US?
    Not to mention that like xaturas said, we have ads already..

    Personally I've never really played many games that had ads in them so I didn't really care about it then nor do I care of them now. Unless there's going to be pop ups of ads every time you start it up and do anything then I don't get what the fuss is all about. Almost every website, store, show, etc. has some form of ads. It's never altered my gaming experience any time I've played, but then again I usually block that kinda of stuff like Elcura. Btw it's not only the PS3 who is welcoming in game ads, just deal with it and life goes on. \o/
