Sony Patent to Pause Gameplay for Ads
I hate it when ads are placed before videos I want to watch on YouTube. I also hate it when side bar ads pop up to advertise an ad I can already seen on upper right side of the screen on YouTube. (Can you say "redundant"?) So I already know that any ad that pauses the game I'm playing will infuriate me. Games are not TV shows with commercial messages in between. The only pauses I'll tolerate is loading and when I manually pause the game. You can view how the patent will work here.
What genius at Sony could possibly think this would be a good idea?
