It's only the beginning, PWE can 'pimp' whatever they like in that box and it's only a matter of time before they start selling the ad space to generate revenue. I can hardly wait for the ad featuring coca-cola or the trojan massage device.
OMG! - A game developer is pimping a new game they're working on, in an existing game made by the self same developer. INSANITY!
(That's intended sarcasm just in case it doesn't come through in text posts)
The point - ALL game developers do this. The practice is nothing new, and person ally, I don't see the reason for any outrage. It's just an ad - not an announcement that STO is being abandoned/shutdown, and try our new replacement (see NCSoft's shutdown of CoX for something like that.)
