Could be if it leads to a cheap option for games or an alternative to the current F2P model.

Come on now magus, you don't have some legal document requiring you to defend them even when they do totally lame jackassish moves, do you?

Provided DVR is killing advertisement on TV, they are looking for new avenues.
I would not mind advertisements during loading screen for example. In the middle of gameplay? not really...

Gamersgate is already doing something like this...

Basically you watch 2 commercials and play an entire game for free... how is that a bad thing exactly? Heck even if they put a commercial between the games chapters (Dark Void is the game I download and its told through chapters) this could be a great benefit to gamers to provide us cheaper or free games (as long as they don't use this in $60 retail games).

They will probably raise the costs of the games to $70 to help pay for the bandwidth and servers to distribute the ads....
