I thought this was interesting because there are only a certain number of settings you are likely to have real life advertisements in.

That is an extremely broad category though.

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter could be considered sci-fi for example.

I still assume this is a Starcraft based MMO but I could be way off. If it was they could do some kind of futuristic Pepsi ad in the game...would be very odd though.

Why would you assume its Starcraft based when they said it's a new IP?

Don't show up to tomorrow's raid unless you've farmed up at least 10 Pepsi BLUEs. We need them for the Cheeto's Red Hot burn phase.

So is Blizzard's new MMO going to be sci-fi, near-future, post-apocalyptic or historical? "All of those combined!" he said, laughing.

More realistic city basically confirmed then.

They already said they want to improve the "social" side to the MMO - that plus using ads as immersion tells me it be a modern/post modern city with billboards. I'm cool with that. As I said, ads can add to the immersion.

Hell, this was the first mod I added to San Andreas:

I think Titan is going to have MTs, Product Placement and auction house with real money transactions.
Auction house thing is in D3 propably just so that they can train their customers to accept the idea, so that they can use it on Titan to make real bank. Just like they indroduced MT items in wow for charity at first so that people wouldn't rage so much. How can you be opposed to charity!? :)

This is going to be deady combination, since blizzard is the best at manipulating people with shinies and experience bars.

I'm not getting good vibes from Blizzard.. Seems that they have become pretty cynical money making focused joint. I don't want to see Blizzard becoming more like Zynga, i hope i'm wrong.

I won't be surprised if 90% of the games that release next gen have product placement. And it won't matter if its a high fantasy, post apocalyptic or modern realistic setting.

Isn't World of Warcraft in many (psychological) ways, very similar to Zynga's products, and in fact prepared the way for Zynga?

What do you mean introduced practically buying gold? I haven't been following WoW closely for a while.
