    Ad-based redirect

    I just had an ad redirect me to a purchase page after I clicked "Forum" on the main PSU page.

    If that was the advertiser's fault, I'd get new advertisers. That's not cool.

    It's that "Sexy Brutale" ad.

    Bypassing region lockout is not theft.
    Unlocator and Unblock-us are not crimes.
    Stop region lockout!

    This happens to me when an ad pops out for a full display. The transition from the minimized ad to the full display ad might lag, leading you to accidentally click on the ad which then redirects you.

    I've noticed it's usually for a game by Bandai Namco or Ubisoft. Not as frequent on PSU than Gematsu though PSU articles have horrible implementation of ads, in my opinion.

    Apologies. We have been through the ringer lately with advertisers. Hopefully that will change soon. I don't like them any more than anyone.
