Did you guys see anything? Or did you hear any of those rumors? I would hate that if there were advertisements all over. It makes sense cause home is free but I'm not entirely sure that I believe that.

So far, the only "Ads" are for PS3 games.  They appear as video trailers, or revolving advertisements.  In the Movie Theater, their are movie posters for Sony movies.

There is nothing so far that is done distastefully.  Nothing intrusive.  Hopefully they keep it that way.

There will be ads in Home, they'll be more noticable than the ads that are already in games today. The ads in Home will be interactive; hanging on walls in the form of pictures. When you get close to them, there will be an option just like when you approach another user in Home and you have the options in a little menu.
 
The ads won't be over-exaggerated.

Most if no all of them are actually relvent to Sony/Playstation. So you won't find stuff like Bowflex being advirtised.

well thats awesome then. I didnt wanna walk around home seeing signs on "how to make my p*%#s bigger"

Lol.
If that was the case, I would just get a myspace account.

Lol Sony would control all the ads and I'm pretty sure they wouldn't let spam type things like 'male enhancement' or anything remotely unrelated to Sony/PS3 be advertised. Im sure they can support Home with game, movie, and music ads... and not to mention maybe ads for tv programs and websites.

Yeah, like a few who have already stated, the ads are very non-intrusive.  It's not like a popup that blocks your screen and you have to click away, they're just screens on walls an posters. As long as it keeps PSN free I'll take seconds on the screens

its true. but hey. would you rather have to put up with posters advertising games or would u rather pay for home. besides. if you don't like it then just go get a bunch of buddies in your or any other persons home. i don't think you'll be forced to advertise stuff in your home if you don't want.
