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

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...

http://nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=182222

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....
