        I agree completely, no one should be expected to perform addition, subtraction or any math skills while engulfed in the playing of a video game.

        <<who wants to be annoyed with that while blowing sh*t up?>>

        Is this the age demographic that will eventually be my caregiver when I reach my golden years of curmudgeonhood? Help, push me off a cliff or give me the number for the Hemlock Society.

        Hopefully before the industry dies in-game advertising will provide lots of coins in the pockets of the capitalist (shareholders), not to be confused (coins & booty) though with Soundmaster T�s sassy little ditty, Too Much *Booty (In Da Pants).

        One really can�t have too many coins in da pockets. Sorry, I digress.

        Good trading everyone

      Then you better get used to a greatly reduced selection because that's where we're going. Don't worry though; there will always be "some" games that ads will not be appropriate in.

      The more I think about it, the VG industry might actually be able to offer people an option. For example, would you be willing to pay $25-$35 extra for a game WITHOUT ads?? It would I'd be interesting to see if people wanted that option.

      This would require the advertising contracts to incorporate some sort of minimum agreed upon # of games to be sold "with" ads. There would then be a prorated rebate paid to the advertisers if that minimum # of games "with ads" were not sold. It would be a way to satisfy everyone.

      I actually believe that most people would opt for paying less for a game "with" ads. What do you think stockmarket_savant?

      Good Investing to all!!
