Though as always it'll just be a first step, soon we'll probably have ads in loading screen if this catches on.

Pretty sure NHL 14 had ads in the loading screens for Subway or another fast food place. NHL 15 also has this Gatorade trophy, but I actually find it pretty clever because Gatorade bottles are a staple on top of s goalies net in hockey and they do get knocked off sometimes.

I thought the cyberpunk future was supposed to be much cooler than this :(

But seriously, that's kinda gross.

Progression achievements are useless anyway, why not get platinum and product recommendations at the same time?

This is tacky, but it's absolutely been done by other devs in the past. 2K is just joining in on it.

The idea is your friends see the Ads when checking your trophies, so ad trophies would be braindead easy shit, why would you make your ad the platinum, something less than 10% the user base will get?

Has there ever been a time when blatant product placement hasn't cheapened whatever it is part of? At least being part of a trophy isn't too egregious.

This has been happening for a while.

NCAA 2009 Football has these (I'm pretty sure older versions might too):

I mean, it's tacky, but I don't really see it as any different than 'in-game' ads.

Edit: Oh my god please tell me the WWE platinum is sponsored by Faygo I would buy the fucking game for that alone

With talk of the Switch getting an achievement system, if it is anything like the XBL/PSN versions I hope it is restricted entirely to the phone app, and doesn't interfere with the console.

S-grade first post. BTW.
