    You know what I see when I read that statement?

    An excellent argument AGAINST digital download games.

    Annoying advertising wouldn't be a part of any game that you buy on solid media, who's gonna pay for that? When you don't own the game though, when it's a digital distribution updated/patched by the platform it's run on, they can get away with this kind of thing: modify the game after you've already bought it.

    First time I've seen such conclusive evidence/proof that digitial download really has a serious downside.

    Well, at least it's currently a choice about whether or not you're installing the update, right?

    I hope so.

    Not having a PS3 I don't yet have to worry about this kind of problem, first time I've been happy about that. 8 )

    I have nothing against advertising, but as SaturnReturn said, it must fit the
    game, and not be disturbing, then I'm all for it, if it helps the studio, which in
    turn will consolidate a next Wipeout installment.

    looks like they're onto a winner here, good idea

    ....

    *Cue stunned silence*

    ....

    NOT


    Hooray for in-game adverts and almost certainly even more bullshit and bugs than before -_-

    P.S. Yes I am being a little extreme but I'm still pissed

    I have one problem with this patch: it means SL spent all this time correctly implementing the advertising function instead of fixing bugs.
    I mean, just look at the press release: 1 paragraph of this announcement is dedicated to the bugs they've fixed (which really consists of four minor things at best), and 4 paragraphs to the return of ingame advertising.
    Betrayed by your own press release.

    No.
    On PS3, if you have a console logged into PlayStation Network, updates are checked and installed automatically when you turn the game on. You can NOT install the update, but if so, you won't be able to play the game online, so it's useless...

    Damn you Sony, you're turning into Capcom - money-leecher
    They can put them into a trial version if they want - because it's free, but I paid for a full game, Sony got my money, so why the heck they're STEALING even more?

    You paid for a full game, how much? Like 20 euros? It's easily worth 60 or more.
    Not that I'm defending them, just pointing out you paid 1/3 of the price of what
    it's really worth, IMO.

    I agree with this opinion of mine that I never expressed. Don't worry Connavar, I confused 'Sausehuhn' with my own name..."WTF? I don't remember typing that".

    My own opinion is that it kinda sucks. But if it means more WipEout in the future then OK. At the same time though, they shouldn't underprice the game and then throw the ads in later to try and make up some revenue. If it all goes to Sony then it will suck more. But I do get free access to PSN, so maybe I can deal with it. Although, if they're full video ads with audio etc, then I'm sure I'll find it very annoying. And I do agree with Darkdrium, more focus should be given on addressing bugs, particularly ones that were there to start with.

    In short - yer, but no, but yer, but no, but....ugh ads!

    if they're going to add up in-game ads that involves State Farm again, then I'm not sure what kind of sick ideas they have up in their sleeves. If they're going to add in-game ads that involoves FX racing teams, then I'm ok with it.

    Wipeout is supposed to be fictional. There's not a single futuristic Burger King around Vineta K, or even a Toys R' us store around Metropia.
