how would you feel about a virtual Walmart or a ford dealership in the world of gtao? where you would walk into their store and see all the real world products that they would pay Taketwo for you to see. And after you mashed the "x/a" button as fast as you could to get to the very back of the store past every product placement known to man, you would get to the clerk that gives you that free chainsaw or baseball bat or your BRAND NEW CAR:)... and because Rockstar is now cashing in on the very deep pockets of advertising the never ending battle of killing money cheats, slashing mission payouts, selling overpriced shark cards and holding back high paying jobs like bank heist and casinos, are suddenly a thing of the past.... the down side is we all become mindless consumer junkies brain washed to think standing in line all night for some trivial piece of plastic crap is a fun thing to do...... then again, it's a small price to pay for your BRAND NEW CAR:)

I'd rob it and leave all the little little 24/7 stores alone as support.

I wouldn't really have a problem with this. Same with movies when u see someone drinking a Coke, eating McDonald's, etc it's adds a bit of realism to it and provides more income for a better movie or in this case more content with that sponsor money

Far Cry 2 had real life billboards for (I think) Fight or Fighter. One of those movies that vied for the top back in like 2005 or something. I was happy to blow away the face of a celeb on a realistic billboard.

 

If the Dos Equis "XX" beer man, also known as the Most Interesting Man In The World, were advertised on a building: I'd crash flying vehicles into him.

 

If Jarred from Subway decided to make all the Cluckin Bell's finally have enterable insides just so his NPC satire could boycott the delicious deep fried meals: I'd kill his NPC.

 

In game ads are funny.

I think companies would be afraid to have their product advertised in a game like grand theft auto.

I'd install a Wall Mart for one reason only - make the screaming little kids who pester for Rooftop Rumble invites go there and work on minimum wage.

 

Make it a Merryweather option. You call them, they send a group of mercenaries who tnen escort the kid to take his position at the till for 6 hours.

No.

 

The Gta World is all about being a parody of real life. I'd be fine with more Bravado or Vapid ads around San Andreas, but not real world products, it would ruin the atmosphere of the game for me

If this means we would get a whole lot more of "free" or cheap DLC, I am all for it.

 

I wouldn't bother to ride the roads and see real life advertisements.
Would only make the game more immersive in my eyes.

 

If for example companies could buy advertisement place; they could promote games, movies, food or even whole companies there.

Rockstar would make tons of money, and we will get cheap/free DLC, and no bothering advertisements which ruin the game.

i love the idea of rockstar having renewable income, because it would definitely bring in new cheap/content keeping the servers alive a lot longer, simply because it would be in the advertisers best interest to keep an audience.. I also agree that gta is based on anarchy and the idea of them having a MacDonald's on every corner forcing their brand down my throat, makes me sick.. but their cash card idea imo is way worse, with this setup the only way they can make money after selling the game is to sell the cash cards, witch means they need to find a way to make us buy them, that means low paying missions for high priced content... I don't know about you but i'd rather watch netflix then spend another 8 straight hours of roof top rumble!..... as long as they handled the advertising with taste, like a virtual store or a billboard and not a forced commercial, then the player would have a choice.. if i don't feel like seeing what's in Walmart, i don't go in... p.s. of course i'm an idiot, the fact that i'm putting this much thought into a video game that i dont profit from pretty much says it all ;) then again you are here to.
