Sony and Microsoft thinking about putting adds in games.

I am actually ok with this, if done right. In sports games it seems like a perfect fit, considering adds are all over. In other games it has to be organic. You see open world games like Spiderman and when your going through the city and come across adds for non existent products it just feels wierd. But I do t want to watch full on adds unless I get points for multiplayer crap... Full adds have no business in single player games though.

In F2P games, I mean they are free... I just hope they are not as obnoxious like in mobile games.

Would it impact the ability to do a re-release (remaster) years later? Like, I think with songs (e.g. Guitar Hero, Brutal Legend) one barrier can be obtaining new licenses for using the songs. If a game has a Coca Cola product ad in it, does the game publisher need to get the brand's permission to re-release the game in 10 years?

I agree that it makes sense in most classic sports and racing games... but less so in a swords-n-sorcery fantasy or futuristic sci-fi game.

I don't know, NBA fans don't seem to enjoy it. It's like full on commercials, not just little billboards or banners and who can say it won't spill into other genres eventually too?

I assumed they were widely doing this already tbh, especially sports games

In some cases they'd probably just replace the images. Wave Race 64 had Kawasaki logos in the game, but years later when they put the game on Virtual Console those were replaced with Wii and DS logos instead. That can work with in-game characters too, like when Mike Tyson got removed from his own game. It's probably not always that easy though. I recall an RPG on the GameCube where the main character used Skittles to perform her magic powers. If that were to ever get a remaster (unlikely though), they'd probably want to pay for that license again.

Ouch, yah I am not down for full on commercials in the single player at all. Upto date bill boards or wherever you would see adds normally I can do. The only way commercials work for me is for cosmetics or coins used to buy in game crap, but you have to be given an option to... But if I have to watch an add to continue playing the game I bought... I'm out.

In Pokemon Red/Blue, use surf near the SS Anne to reach a small patch of land with a truck. Use strength to move the truck and find Mew.

Luigi being an unlockable playable character in the original Super Mario 64.

The whole "L is real" rumor had some validity, as the gigaleak did reveal Luigi was cut from the game.

Tomb Raider nude cheat. Many many conversations and rumors regarding this. I think the developer addressed it with an in game joke or something in a future release.

Rumor! PS5 could emulate PS2 and PS3 games. But will Sony ever give up their greed charging me for the same game five times?

They can emulate PS1 and 2 games... You will get that with the new service... Rumor is they are working on PS3 emulation also, but I suppose the real rumor is they have a way now but it it only works with a couple games.

They have a newly created division and there sole purpose is game preservation... That's promising.

Even if they do get emulation, playing on original hardware is still the best way to play anything.

Porn started doing it and I'm not a fan. Video game adds mid game would be a total buzz kill. On disc switches pre intros and credits I'd be cool with it, but mid gameplay or during gameplay elements. Absolutely not.

I guess they went ahead and leaked it early.
