Sony Patents In-Game Commercials
« on: May 29, 2012, 03:59:41 PM »
Not in-game advertisements, in-game commercials, where the game is force-paused and can't be unpaused until the unskippable commercial is over.

Trying not to assume the sky is falling here, but....WTF?

Read an article on this last week. As I recall they pointed out similar patents were made almost a decade ago and nothing noticeable came of it (yet). No reason to believe this is going to become an issue anytime soon.

Edit: I was close: "This isn't the first time Sony has expressed an interest in such technology; the patent has been active in one form or another for at least six years."
