To be honest, speaking from an economic standpoint, if they did advertise in their games, I doubt they'd actually lower their price. The current price for a new video / PC game is pretty standard, and after millions in marketing dollars, they've figured out the price equalibrium somewhere around $50 for a well designed, professionally created new game. If they were to advertise, we may see the quality of the games rise, but we'd likely not see a dip in price.

Advertising is wrong in so many ways anyway. Advertising in Games... would just lower the fun of the game; as most advertisements are annoying.

In Max Payne 2 I think (thats a very big I think). There is a large Nvidia logo plastered on a wall. I personally think that adverstising in games can help boost realism. Alot of racing games also advertise, especially now with the likes of Need for Speed Underground duo, which not only advertise cars and things but also things like stereo systems etc.

Advertising in violent movies is pretty big (Swordfish- Heinekin beer etc.) so i dont see the problem with advertising in violent video games. Well thats my two cents anyway.

I think it depends on how they are done etc. Its a good idea if it lowers prices I suppose.
