I dont mind some advertising in video games as long as it doesnt detract from the actual game. This burger king crap though in Fight Night 3 for the 360 is downright horrible. The ONLY way companies like EA will stop this bs like this is if we let them know through boycott that if you screw with gameplay for crappy adverts im going to not only going to NOT buy your product, I will forever remember that you (burger king) ruined a great game. and also EA, i will certainly think twice about buying future games from you.

THIS IS A DISGRACE EA AND BK!!! YOU HAVE RUINED THE GAME!!


EDITED:

man, every round i play i get more and more pissed off. what a joke. I pay $60 for a game and have to listen to B f'ing K ads over and over!!!! MISERABLE.

Sure, sorry i didnt to begin with i was/am still really pissed about all this.

Fight Night has been a great franchise imo, so naturally i was excited about the 360 version.

Well i've only played 2 matches but the Burger King crap is so overwhelming that it totally takes away from the gameplay. Every round or replay is brought to you by burger king, there are 3 BK logos on the the turn buckles, the center of the ring is burger king, there are banners from the ceiling that say have it your way- even the announces SAY this punch brought to you by burger king. the walls are plastered with logos... most are so much higher in contrast to the rest of the game its all you pay attention to.

the game has a very cool shader system to create some nice dynamic lighting, well when they put stats over top, this crazy high contrast burger king logo pops up which totally makes your eye go- what the hell is that blinding thing down there- oh a damn BK logo.

i can deal with subtle fitting adverts, but since when was Ali / Frazier sponsored by a bk broiler?

the game btw, is amazing otherwise. i cant stress enough how much this ruins it though.

WRITE SOME EMAILS TO EA AND BK FOLKS!!!!

Guess thats why you need EA to spell LAME.




5 minutes later..... i cant believe im watching chics figure skating the day FN3 comes out. FUBK

BK's just trying to tap into the video game industry in any way it cans.

I think the blame falls on EA here.
I'm all for realism, and that includes sponsor advertising but I've never seen a fast food joint sponsoring a prize fight dry.gif

If it was Budweiser it would be realism, BK is just selling out like they did with commercials in movie theatres.

Yeah Budweiser and automobile ads would fit in fine.

Now that I remember, BK was all over the last UFC event I watched on television.
And boy was that annoying....

You would think with the money BK paid to have the logo put in EA could make the game a little cheaper for us. Oh well, like thats ever going to happen.

you cant boycott BK, to many people who dont play video games wont give a shit about what you think. Fast food sells to millions of people everyday, and they wont give a shit if they lose, what like 5 customers because they agree your whining. Who really cares anyhow. go get a whopper© and STFU

Moving to Gamer Chat...

Oh and you'd be better set to send you comments about the Game back to EA, it would also be more effective if you encouraged people to boycott the game as opposed to BK...

BK doesn't care about the game, and that's ok they just make burgers

EA obviously doesn't care about the game either, and that's NOT ok because they make the game.

Can you fight as the crazy-scarey King from the BK commercials? tongue.gif

I was really on the fence about this game. How pathetic is it of me that I can not play boxing games anymore. Mike Tyson's Punch Out is the definitive boxer, and all others have sucked since.
It'd be nice to have a new game to play, but hearing this BK stuff (and knowing how annoyed I would get as well) I am out. Top-spin 2 it is!
