Viacom Looks to Advertise in Video Games

Now this looks interesting... advertising within video games. And, apparently, not just logos of the game developers that show up every time you start the game.

Due to the decreased TV watching of young males, advertisers are seeking a new way to get into their heads to peddle their products. Though it seems like a crackpot idea at first, it just might work... or it might turn guys off to video games, too. Or at least the ones with advertising content. If this is going to work, it must appear in ALL video games, or the ones with blatant ads will not get any play-time.

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
