Google Adsense for Video Games

Sounds like a very interesting future for indie game developers, IMO: Google Adsense for Video Games. They are planning this for flash games first, but want to move this to real (sic) games later. Just like anyone with a small webpage can earn money using adsense now, maybe any hobbyist or professional game developer can do this with their games too, soon.

Wow that’s really cool, and also pretty bad. Makes me wonder how much you’d get paid for just for having Coca-Cola machines in a free FPS, or whether companies like Ikea, BMW and Audi will start handing out free models for product placement.

The bad part is how censorship via the in-game adverts will affect creativity, I don’t think any major corporations would sponsor a dark, dystopian future where those very corporations are the bad guys.
