Lighthouse (CoH/V's Community Relations Manager) announced that CoH/V's optional in-game advertising of real world products is now live. The only ad reported on the forums is of a shoe.

It's optional, so you can turn this system off and go back to the fake ads around CoH/V, but I plan to leave them on. They aren't intrusive and they put revenue back into CoH/V's development pocket. As far as in-game ads go, they are probably the best they are ever going to get... and yes, in-game advertising IS coming, have no doubt.

Advertising in some ways is fine.. But spyware is not nor ever going to work... And they unfortuantely are tracking the stuff, (how else can they charge???) Which is why it will never come to be.. I didnt buy BF 2142 and a slew more behind me followed, and ensured its failure and actual removal before launch although it still lingers... and gamers never forget..

But a soda can here, a stuffed animal there, or a designer shoe on my character is all fine.. (so long as i can shoot it :)

go beyond this and you've gone too far
