Just saw this tweet. Apparently WWE2k18 is using ads as trophy pictures:

This is the tackiest thing I have ever seen.

So it fits right in with the general WWE aesthetic.

It's fine. We've had advertising in games for a long time so it's nothing new.

It's nothing new. They did it last year and I remember getting achievements on the 360 that had ads on them. I'd have to go back and look but I'm certain I got a Burger King achievement

That's kinda genius. Besides it being tacky as fuck, It doesn't bother me that much.
Though as always it'll just be a first step, soon we'll probably have ads in loading screen if this catches on.

Well I guess it's where do you draw the line. Accept this and next year you could start having adverts on the main menu.

Publishers will keep trying these things seeing how hard they can push before consumers push back. I think loot boxes/microtransactions have shown largely players that care are in the minority, I think that breaking point in terms of the mass market is still a while away.

This post was brought to you by KFC, enjoy a family bucket today .

Considering it's WWE, I'm alright with it because goddamn they love to sell out, so it doesn't seem out of place

Sad thing is this KFC promotion was probably the best part of Summerslam this year.

Remember when EA said in the early 00s that ads in games will lower the prices of games?

Then somehow BF2142 was costing the same...

Personally, I don't have a problem with this as long as it doesn't feel forced or overdone. In fact, I actually thought it was amazing the first time i saw product placement in games such as KFC and Pizza Hut stores in Crazy Taxi and Pepsi ads and Pepsiman in Fighting Vipers years ago.
