if sony put an advert up during the middle of playing an online video game it would be a huge mistake

 

i would sell my playstation 3 and because there are enough adverts on television as it is

 

here is the article explaining about the adverts would be so wrong for adverts to disturb a video game

 

here is the article about sony adverts been played during video games

I agree. The first time that interrupted my gaming, I'd be down CeX with it all trading it in.

Alternatively, we could all disable the PS3's internet connection. Then the crisis is averted.

Won't happen as Sony know it would loose them gamers.

 

Many patents get filed and are never used.

Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

Great idea.

 

I can play FIFA online then without ads popping up.

 

Oh wait.. I need the internet to play online. :|

spotify is similar to vidzone which also has adverts, but gaming is totally different, can you imagine the enemy in view and your about to take the shot then everything slows down and a advert pops up, is it april 1st, perhaps thats whats wrong with mw3 its slowing down but the adverts failing to appear and thats what all this maintenance is for.

you get the singleplayer experience (FREE) with ads. and you pay for the multiplayer part if you want it or you dont.

Killzone3 got a (Paid)MP only part of PSN if I remember correctly.

and of course there won't be ANY ads if you buy the retail copy or the FULL copy on PSN

*Or if Sony comes with a Streaming only "Lite" PS3 with a Free(with ads) or premium PS+ account type of deal.



*probably not

I think Tex makes a valid point, for all we know it could be part of an optional service where content is offered for free by whatever means and subsidised by advertising like Spotify etc.

 

Hasn't this already happened to some degree, I could swear Wipeout HD featured ads during load screens? 

 

On the other hand, as CJS said, patents get filed all the time and disappear into the ether.

How would this work? Have they seen Vidzone? Adverts would contain only one when the function is launched and then further down the line, the game would feature an additional 11 adverts in the space of an hour which would ruin the game completely and ruin the industry as a whole, Nice thinking Sony, remind me not to book you... if I need help with saving the planet.

im ok with ads in load screens, as long as they dont deliberately make the loading longer, and even bill boards in game. in some games they even add to the experience make it more realistic (sports games or half destroyed ones in post apolyptic games come to mind here)

Freezing games to play everyone an ad, no just no.

Now if that happened i would seriously smash the poop out of my playstation.

I play games to get away from tv and stupid adverts, it's why i pay for netflix and the unblock-us.com dns servers, no adverts = happy kevballs

Indeed it did, it had ads for the "Fury" DLC. There was abit of a uproar because the ads actually made the loading times longer

i remember the ad's on the wipeout loading screens and i lodged a complaint about it as they were louder than the game, i think alot of people complained and then they removed the ads.
