However before you get to worked up about Microsoft’s impending doom I should probably clarify that they are letting 30% of employees from their in-game advertising business, entitled Massive, go which is around 100 people. This is part of their previously announced goal to slim their workforce by 5000 people by mid 2009.
I am still a little unsure as to why the in-game advertising model has yet to take off, I know for sure that I would actually prefer to see real adverts when driving around Liberty City or stalking through towns in MW2.
I feel it brings a touch of realism to the game that would me it more immersive while branding me permanently with subliminal messages. It seems to be a perfect fit?
