    I've seen the Fury Ads a couple times. Haven't seen the State Farm ones yet though.

    I'm OK with ads during loading screens. They're pretty unobtrusive and its not like I'd be doing anything at that moment anyway. Sony gives us the PSN for free (Xboxers pay for Live, right?) so I'd rather see this than an access fee to the PSN.

    Correct, you pay for multiplayer on Live, and you have to see advertisements all the time to.

    This is nothing. Burnout Paradise has in game billboards, inFamous has in game advertising, it's helping defray dev. costs for the game, not a big deal. But like, if my Mirage all of a sudden had a big ole Nascar style hood ornament, well, that would be super annoying.

    In game ads in a game like Wipeout could get pretty sticky, I think. All the Future-tech of the game world with a 'Buy a Kia' billboard in it would be pretty off-putting.

    But Red Bull was able to incorporate their ads into the XL universe pretty effectively, so it could be done.

    Hmmm. I saw a Fury ad in HD after the 2.00 update and just before I downloaded Fury. I've not seen a different ad in Fury.. yet. This is bad news. I thought the Fury ad in HD was fair enough, but I thought that would be it after you bought the damn thing.

    This video capability during loading could be put to good use though - showing a highlights reel of the previous race or something. Or info about the track, like at the start or Pulse races.

    Looks like an US only thing since i have no ads and i'm from europe, I understand ads when the game is free but in a full release game, not so much ;x.

    No, but it's affecting my mental well-being. And my opinions of SL/Sony.

    I don't understand why people are complaining. As long as ads stay out of the gameplay + they don't change anything in the game + they don't affect playing or selecting things they are generally a good thing imho. More money for SL is more Wipeout for us.
    But if SL doesn't get anything of the money and it just goes directly to Sony I would be really pissed too.
