You dirty, greedy motherfuckers! You couldn't just be happy with the $500 I paid for your system? On top of the $120 for three extra controllers? On top of the $70 for the wireless adapter that you require to make your online functions work? On top of the $60 I paid per game, making my collection worth more than my first year of community college?
No, you had to go and start selling goddamn ad space on your games. And let me tell you right off the bat that when gamers get pissed off and vomit their misspelled rage on the Net, it's not an overreaction. We play many of these games because we enjoy the immersion. They're our escape from life's mundane bullshit. So when we see horrible product placement like this, it's so jarring, it takes us completely out of the game and reminds us, "Oh yeah. I'm still in real life, where I still have money problems. I should probably stop buying video games."
"Now that I think about it, I should sell all of my electronics and learn to grow my own food."
You think we're just making idle threats when we say that if you continue fucking with your customers like this, we're going to just start hacking the damn things? Surprise! It's already started. So knowing how we react to simple ads being shown in fairly harmless ways, how exactly do you think the gaming community is going to respond if Sony follows through with their patent on commercials that actually interrupt your fucking game like in a TV show? Do you honestly not see the impending gamer rebellion that you're about to cause? If not, it's been nice doing business with you. I look forward to learning more about your financial demise in future college courses that will be devoted solely to your catastrophic absence of foresight.
