Ok, i believe that Advertising should, to some extent, be in video games; so long as it means that prices would go down. I'm tired of seeing Half-Life 2's huge price tag. 55 bucks?? Joo Crazy N00bs! And what's up with Tony Hawk's Underground 2? It's initial price was 30$, but somehow it ROSE? Does this often happen? Arg!
I wouldn't mind seeing, in UT2004, seeing a Ruger or Winchester logo on one of the weapons. If this meant that it would reduce the price to 30 or 20 bucks, sign me up.
In some games, it could be TOO EASY to advertise. In the next GTA, after San Andreas, you could create a real world enviroment with beautiful enviroments, and have signposts advertising new products! Am I a genius or what? I think "What" is the answer to that question.
