Google – Game On

In a new revelation from all things, Google the Mountain View, California based company you will now see adsense in games. There will be a beta version looking to gain more revenue for the online search leader. The area is new for advertising to put relevant advertising links in Web-based games. This is not proposed as a simple sidebar during the game. This is not a targeted ad for the playing Xbox, ps3, or wii under the game screen. The idea is to target ads as videos that players watch before or after a game, or after completing a level. It is not as if we did not see this coming as in 2007, Google purchased Adscape Media, a small in-game advertising company. This at the time was a direct response to Microsoft purchase of the ad company Massive Inc. Mochi Media is already working with Google to provide in-game ads in Europe. This is further evidence that everything you will ever do online will come with a commercial. There is no such thing as free and you usually get what you pay for. This is a new battleground and another area where people are getting used to having to watch a commercial or see a string of ads as they view the content they desire. We wonder if this will spawn a creation such as HBO, when cable appeared a commercial free zone of uncut, unfettered content for a price. How many years away from paying for web free browsing?
