Capcom Introduces In-Game Ads

As expected, Capcom committed to introducing a series of ads in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. While they can be toggled on/off from the battle menu, they are on by default. Nonetheless, criticisms have been noted saying such a business model is setting a dangerous precedent.

The ads can and will show up in “several locations” throughout the game. This includes loading screens, tournament stages, and even on characters themselves. Capcom stresses the ads do not impact the game’s performance. Despite that, the game does incentivize leaving them enabled by offering more fight money to players. Advertisements in video games are nothing new; albeit it is a unique occurrence for a full priced title. If you want to know more, you can check out the full story at GameSpot.
