Wipeout patch2.10 is out. So are the ads.

35 replies 5 views Edited Oct 30, 2009
It came out yesterday actually. It seems it fixed the problem with Eliminator missing the red pads and other stuff. And (re)introduced the bloody advertising. I really can't stand it. First of all it wastes bandwidth (and having a bandwidth cap of few GB that pisses me off). Second I already paid good money for the game and the Fury add-on: 30 bucks Who gives them the right to force me watch their crap? I used the PS3 to avoid the television with its retarded commercial. I blocked all ads in my web browser. Now I must be forced to watch them even if I already paid FULL price for the product? I don't care what they say, many ads are ugly, boring and thus evil. Especially that PSP ad with its irritating music. They should be rated 100+ year and eliminated with the parental control (just the ads, not the game, sure). I want an option to disable them. Period.

If the new patch brought ads then I will not be downloading it. I guess I'll stay offline when I want to play Wipeout.

apparently this is the first of many games that will 'feature' dynamic advertisements -- hopefully it has so many people refusing to update or play with them that they rethink the whole idea ..... I wouldn't mind if it just meant that maybe there would be changeable billboards or something in the background but it doesn't sound like it's something easily ignored

You paid "good" money?

Give me a break.  You got a full fledged game for less than $60.

That may be your assessment (and I agree it's a great game .... $60 great, I don't think so) but that wasn't the dealThe offer wasn't "You'll get a great game worth more than you're paying for it, if you're willing to watch ads to help support it."

 

The offer was "Wanna buy our game?" and had no ads.

 

Now it does; that's not greatI haven't seen them yet so can't judge how annoying they may be.

 

However, the best way to kill in-game advertising is to not respond to the ads; advertisers put their money in places that generate salesIf in-game doesn't work, they'll stop doing it.

 

That may not prevent schenanigans like "I'll advertise in your game in exchange for an ad in my game for your stuff" trading, or in-house cross-promotion - direct complaints will help with these sort of things.

What's really awesome about the ads is that they freeze up the game during loading (still can go to XMB to Quit) so now I can't even play it!

Sony has the perfect right to add whatever they want to the game. It is their game, or have you people forgotten that?

 

Sure, you may have bought it, but whenever you log online, there is agreements you must agree to be allowed online. Read that, and come back to me when it says that Sony DOES NOT have the right to put up advertisements in THEIR GAME. 

 

The only thing pathetic I am seeing right now is all of your complaining.

If we were in the shoes of the makers we would say yes to ads. They have families to feed and gotta make money some how.
