Sony Patents Game Interrupting Ads

Soon, you may be viewing an ad in the middle of a game if you choose to use one of Sony's newer systems. If your game is stopped at a critical point, you may "rewind" the game so that the ad doesn't screw you up, but this is absolutely ridiculous.

Re: Sony Patents Game Interrupting Ads

Patenting it and using it are two completely different things. Companies patent things all the time knowing they will never use them just so if another company uses them they can sue or threaten to sue.

Re: Sony Patents Game Interrupting Ads

Just because it's patented doesn't mean they'll use it.
But if they do, I'm switching to an Xbox. That's ridiculous.

Re: Sony Patents Game Interrupting Ads

Putting game stopping ads into games would be suicide for whoever decided to do it. I doubt it ever sees the light of day

Re: Sony Patents Game Interrupting Ads

Yeah don't count on premium being ad free. MS has it's gold Live service with ads on the menu screens. With the newest update the adds are bigger than the game icons.

Re: Sony Patents Game Interrupting Ads

I really hope they don't implement this.
It would be a quick way to kill off the Playstation.

Re: Sony Patents Game Interrupting Ads

I think the PS3 was a quick way to kill off the playstation. PS1 and PS2 are so legendary , whatever Sony did this gen completely ruined the brand name. It's strange how far it wondered away from it's initial philosophy. When it was released, it was open and had the customers interest in mind. Maybe the lack of games set off a flag in the micromanagement department and they stripped all the features away. I think a lot of people are starting to realize that as a collective, we can't reward bad behavior like this anymore. When the whole LINUX thing went down, because of a bunch of lawsuits, they ended up changing the agreement (if you can play on PSN you probably accepted the agreement at some point) that basically retracted your ownership of the playstation 3. You legally don't own your PS3. You are LEASING IT from Sony for an undetermined amount of time. That's basically when I decided never to buy a Sony product brand new ever again. That's scumbag levels of deception.

An SPU emulator for x86 is in it's alpha stages, maybe we'll see some ps3 emulators in the next 10 - 15 years.
