The point I am trying to make is: Even if you are the most persistant anti-in-game-advertisement person out there, just one more ad in a game isn't ging to hurt anyone. If something as trivial as seeing an ad for Pepsi, Nokia, and Nike in a video game is going to upset people to the point were they will drop everything they once did in deference for the game (play it 24/7 and then kicking it to the side because of a Pepsi billboard) then maybe playing these games should be the last thing that they should be worrying about.

The difference between this and Gmail is , Gmail is ad supported and free.(and upfront).
2142 is 50 bucks, and they tell you it has ads in it AFTER YOU CANT RETURN IT!

its the same concept though. Gmail is free yet you still use it even though they scan your more personal emails to dtermine advertising content. You should be more concerned about that then BF2142.

Anyway for some laughs, these adds in the game have gone to far, look what I found !!

It is the same concept. It's gathering information on you and placing relevant adds where you'll see them, be it in a game or in your email. So you paid $50 for a game, boo hoo. So did I - the only difference here is that you're making a mountain out of a mole hill. Stop getting so bent out of shape over nothing.

Intrusion of privacy vs. False Pretences and Principals of the dilema...
"Boo hoo Big Brother is watching" Ok I can see that but the warning that they aregoing to snoop is in the box .
So you have to fork over the money then say "Hey I dont agree with that , I guess I just donated some money to EA !"

Thread Starter 
Whoah I completely forgot about this thread...wow. I apoligize. Well I didn't read most of the replies yet but I think some of you read it out of context. This topic title was pure sarcasm, the picture was supposed to show how the ads do not really bother anyone. As for the pic I have no idea if it is photoshopped or not, my friend sent it to me.

BTW the spyware does not record anything other than what ads you look at, for how long, and at what angle. The spyware is completely shut off when your not playing the game.

I think since you caused such an uproar and so much confusion you should have to give me your video cards.

Mods what do you think? Do we agree

that looks cool that pic does

when you think about it, you want realism, and your getting it.

in real life such as the battles in afghanistan ( or however you spell it ) our forces have to fight in normal streets that do have advertisement.
