134w ago - Today [Register or Login to view links] has uncovered details on an interactive content [Register or Login to view links] that Sony has filed for an in-game advertising scheme presumably for PlayStation Network.

To quote from GamePlox.com (linked above): "Like That Free PSN? Better Get Used to Advertisements - Recently discovered on Google Patents, a patent that Sony Computer Entertainment America filed on November 10, 2011 shows that they plan to interrupt game play to bring advertisements.

The premise is like this: you’ll be enjoying your game, and then it will start to gradually slow down, until an advertisement pops-up on your screen telling you about some great offers, and then your game will resume."

Is PlayStation Network Plus the wave of the future, or should PSN remain free but plagued with in-game advertisements? Feel free to share your opinions on this topic below!

Bad idea to put advertisement during gameplay on free psn, the free online gameplay has always been the strength of the ps3 compared to xbox, do not throw this, Sony!

There is already enough advertisement during the other apps like Vidzone, do not ruin games, please!

Just because something is patented does not mean it will be implemented. In fact many things are patented and then never put in. I bet Sony owns several dozen to hundreds.
