Yeah, that'll work. I'm sure gamers will flock to buy your stupid game that FORCES THEM TO STOP PLAYING to view your stupid ad.

NeoGAF user onQ13 has spotted a patent filed by Sony describing a method to halt a video game to play an advertisement. The patent is called "Advertisement Scheme for use with interactive content," and is geared towards Sony's PlayStation games, maybe more.

sounds like something you'd only put in a free game, otherwise that would be pretty stupid

great for Microsoft users ... MS won't be able to stop a game to show ads without infringing Sony patents.

That is a good point... although I'm sure M$ are right behind them.

patents are easy enough to get around.

:finger: I'm eating reheated stirfry which wasn't that good last night.

I'm not sure I can do the beer makers night this week either, flying out to Sydney on Friday... are you going? I might see if tickets are left on wed if I get my collective shit together, washed, packed, pre-work completed and ready to go.
