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.

I actually had to look it up on psnprofiles because I didn't believe it was true. :O I would expect that from some small dev needing the extra cash, but even then it would be disgusting.

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.

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.
