i think it'll be for the HL2 component...but that's what i've been told.

it could very well be the demo - we'll see. i'm sort of in the dark about it for now.
all i saw on the work order was "in game ads for National Guard appearing in Counter Strike."

gotta pay for the games and servers somehow - seems an easy way to get it done.
it's not IN THE GAME either..it's after you're done.

Are you sure? The very reliable shacknews linked to an article that said VU Games (publisher of HL2) said they will implment In Game Adverizing in their TOP Selling games. However they stress that it will not effect FPS Preformance so i belive I know what they are going to do.

In the game there will be digital billboards that rotate ads.

However, im sure someone will find a way to crack it so the ad servers never get 'contaced'

i thought it was just a splash screen after you exited, you know, like they have in demos where you can link up to buy the game.

wow...cool...

Yep

Here is the link

http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/041018/sfm092_1.html

here is their webpage http://www.massiveincorporated.com/

It shows a 'fake' game with 'fake' adverts in it.

However, UNLESS these 'ad supported' games are FREE i will be very pissed.
