    Sony patents method to interrupt your gaming with an ad...

    Sony has patented an application that interrupts game playing to display an advertisement.

    The patent, spotted by a user on NeoGAF, was filed in July 2011 by Sony Computer Entertainment America. It's called "Advertisement Scheme for use with interactive content".

    Here's how it works: interactive content is suspended, an advertisement is displayed, then interactive content is resumed. Sony's patent images go into better detail, and are below.

    First, game playing gradually slows down. You then get a warning that the game is about to stop. You then get the ad. Sony's example is: "BEST BRAND SODA. You've got to try it!" You then get a warning that the game is about to resume. The game resumes. There's mention of rewinding the game after the ad has run its course, too.

    This latest patent is actually a continuation of a patent filed back in 2006, which shows Sony is at least still interested in the tech. But, as with all these patents, it remains to be seen whether ads interrupting gameplay will ever come to fruition.

    No one, not Sony, Nintendo, or MS would dare to put (or be stupid enough to put) something so immersion breaking in their console.

    They will do it and you all will lap it up while telling people to quit whining/crying/$#@!ing/moaning/screaming and calling them trolls/basement dwellers/$#@!es/$#@!s/assholes/Xbots/Wii-tards etc... You all have given them so much leeway to dictate your gaming/computer entertainment use that they know you all will scream for it and will run out to purchase another console regardless of what they do to it. You all gave them the go-ahead when they took Other-OS out, banned certain third party I/O devices, introduced the online pass etc.. You all did this to yourselves and you will do it again with in-game advertisements. I guarantee you, this will come to pass with nary a whimper or barely that. Just remember those you all ridiculed and belittled for voicing their distaste and concerns regarding where gaming was headed.

    If retail games were at the most 20 bucks then go for it. Give me the choice of an ad free game tho.

    Would be a terrible move. Games consoles used to be for games only. Now they are evolving so much you've got social media on them which I am fine with but to interrupt or put advertisements in to games would be a bit annoying.

    There can be exceptions though, advertisements in soccer games seem to be fine enough because around the edge of the stadiums in real life there are advertisements so it would be neat if they updated the ads in games like that, people wouldn't really bother too much. Putting them in a game like Uncharted though would be stupid.

    Yeah I too doubt Sony would pull a move like that. As Ghost put it best, if I'm playing some single player game that actually has a narrative, last thing I want is some $#@!ing Coke ad in the middle of it.

    I'm pretty sure this patent pertains to the rumored cloud gaming service that's going to be announced at E3. Probably a rental or demo service will use this.

    Not a wise move if this gets implemented in the future. I believe that the most logical step here is to start adding vending machines and billboards advertising other companies during gameplay instead of being rudely interrupted while in the middle of a game.

    Yeah, I don't think many people would mind in-game advertising if it was part of the background. Especially in the more popular franchises like Call of Duty during online play where you're guaranteed to have millions of people viewing it.

    I doubt this would happen unless there's some paid sub service. Some games do this, but they don't pause your gameplay. In-game ads. I remember Skate 2 had a lot of Monster and T-Mobile billboards. I think if they just stick with that, it'll be fine. No need for these "commercial breaks'.
