It's not a bad idea tbh. As long as the adverts are no more substantial than they already are (track sides and stuff).

What they should do is reduce the price of the game due to the advertising revenue. But i bet that doesn't happen.

Provided they don't it up as badly as they did up 'til the latest patch on Battlefield 2142 - the adverts file actually corrupted itself and would cause the game to freeze until it was deleted.

That would be one of the safest bets ever

Yeah, as long as it aint pop-ups or anything then it's not an issue. Seems pretty good buisness sense to me.
