    Exclamation commercials in online loading screens?

    anyone remember those fury ads that played during the loads of online races after the 2.0 patch? well today i saw a fair share of state farm ads in the same place. is it just me, or has anyone else seen them? if so, whats the deal? plus... why is state farm advertising on wipeout hd of all places??? what, because we play wipeout we're supposed to be bad drivers

    I saw this also and was like "WTF!!!!" seriously... If SL is going to do in game advertising save it for energy drinks. Its pretty stupid that they would throw State Farm Insurance ads on there.

    if SL was responsible for the ads it would be cool if they stayed in theme. now i may be wrong, but the games are all user hosted through PSN so i dont think SL has anything to do with the online functionality. so are these ads really coming from PSN or what i guess is the first question to be asked

    I've never seen any ads like that in the game... ever... is this a US thing maybe?

    I haven't seen it myself, but you know what ads mean right? More money for the devs (hopefully) so larger budget to make more Wipeout goodness!

    So are we going to have ads like PS Home now?

    Then in game billboards? (I hope not unless they are relevant to WO)

    Default WipEout HD ads

    Is this just showing up for people who haven't downloaded 'Fury' yet? I have Fury installed, and haven't seen any ads--Fury or otherwise--since prior to its installation. Perhaps it's a ploy to get more people to download the DLC...

    I have Fury installed and saw the State Farm one today for the first time.

    I'm ok with it if it means we get more content sooner rather than later.

    As for the ad being WO related... they're going to take money from whoever gives them more of it.

    The MS philosophy? *sigh*
    (We see how that turns out reguarding "exclusives")

    This is a sad day, then.

    I would rather pay for PSN than deal with in-game ads.

    Logging in now - if the ads are there - these may very well be my last two races.
