Why all the hype about bf2142 and spyware?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Alright, for starters....why is targeted marketing so horrible? I htink it was splinter cell to first do this, and noone put up a fuss about it.

Secondly...i've played for 7 hours, on all maps, and have yet to see a billboard advertisment. This proves one of the following...

A) they aren't nearly as prevalent as you say they are...
B) they aren't nearly as destracting or noticible as you say they are...

So cut the crap people...unless you have the game and these ads are bothering you...or you know someone personally that has a problem with it and have seen the ads...please ****...i'm still trying to figure out where that pepsi ad came from, cause ,as i said, ive been to ever map and have yet to see it. Someone tell me the map that that gharish pepsi billboard was....

I still think that it was photoshopped...

People seem to enjoy being outraged, and they really "stick it to the man" when they refuse to buy a game on principle.

Maybe you're not getting the Pepsi ad because the spyware is telling them to send you another ad...

Don't start thinking that in-game ads are okay, people. For pete's sake, you guys who let corporations just walk all over you really make me shake my head. Draw a line, jeez.

I accually want in game ad's to increase. I dislike how if a game needs to have some realism people shun it away and resultingly we get ads in game for Hogogo Cola. Just let them put the ad in, it makes the game feel more real.

I've never had a problem with ingame ads til I played Fight Night Round 3. They have ads for Burger King and the king even shows up ringside. A billboard on a random building wasnt great but there has to be a line.

Why do I want to spend full price on a game, then be fed ads. I'd be all about ads in my game if they were 20 dollars, but paying 50 for an ad engine crosses the line.
