A. The idea of in-game advertising (Why am I getting ads in something I pay for?)
B. How Massive and Activision seem proud of using in-game advertising (when all it is is a money play)
C. This BS about in-game adverts "enhancing realism" (apparently we're quite gullible)
Of course, other people might like in-game ads.

To anyone who wants to play a great Transformers game, I highly recommend downloading the Transformers G1:Awakening cell phone game from Glu Mobile. It's by no means perfect but it is probably the best Transformers video game on any system. I would love to see them make an Xbox Live Arcade version. I've probably gotten more hours of play out of this $8 cell phone game than I ever got from the mediocre $60 Xbox 360 game from Activision.

I support both of these ideas.
Far as my opinion on in game advertising however, I don't understand how a game that has real world sponsors still costs the same as a game that does not. Shouldn't the revenues from the advertising reduce the final price of the game?
