A tad more advertising on Gamersyde

A tad more advertising on Gamersyde

A new type of advertising will be enabled tomorrow morning on Gamersyde. We'll have a preroll video ad before the actual streaming video itself. Don't be alarmed though, it will never be longer than 45 seconds and it won't be shown more than once every few hours (at least 4), so hopefully you'll be able to survive this :) This is the only way for us to pay everyone involved in the site for their work and for our travel expenses, so we hope you'll understand why we just have to do it. And be sure we are preparing lots of great stuff for the next few weeks, and that we'll be in numbers to cover the Tokyo Games Show even better than the Game Convention last week!
Update: I also forgot to mention that we'll soon have a brand new streaming video player on the site. It will mostly have the same functionalities than the current one with a few more stuff, but it will look *much* better :)

As it helps gamersyde to grow, it is okay :-)
Commented on 2007-09-01 00:00:52
So long as the site stays awesome.

a small price to pay

Color me unregistered.

Lol jk this site is awesome. As long as I don't see dating ads and male growth enhancement ads it's cool.
Commented on 2007-09-01 00:12:55
Our ads will always be gaming related.

As long as pop-ups is kept in the damn jack-in-the-box where they belong, then I'm happy.

Will it be added to the download videos also? I would hate to have to edit the videos I download.
Commented on 2007-09-01 00:18:15
The downloads will stay as they have always been.
And of course no pop-ups or annoying flash.
Commented on 2007-09-01 00:28:29
no problems Blim, no problems :-)

Hey whatever keeps this great site standing is more than a welcomed addition.
Commented on 2007-09-01 00:54:54
Sounds good.
Commented on 2007-09-01 00:55:52
If you wanna make it you have to sell out alittle :P
And I thank god for the lack of pop-ups... adds on the site is a part of the gaming world to me, as long as they dont hinder me in any way and I dont have to do anything to get rid of them :)

Keep the fantastic work up guys.

i dont know how many people you have to bend over for to keep this site running, id imagine ubisoft have regular use of your posterior :P but ads before streaming is more than acceptable, and already common practice, this site is already the premier site for exclusive media WITHOUT being forced to pay *cough*ign*cough* just hope the site says media focused, and doesnt try moving into news focused, theres already too many of those
Commented on 2007-09-01 01:34:26
well you gotta pay the bills, right?
Commented on 2007-09-01 01:37:45
Hell I got ZERO problems with this.

Include an ad at the end of the video while your at it for all I care.
Commented on 2007-09-01 01:39:01
~In full support here.
This is one of the few sites that I try to click ads and such.

Commented on 2007-09-01 01:44:26
Compared to other sites it's a drop in the ocean, I'm sure it's good business for both parties :)
Commented on 2007-09-01 01:45:56
As long as Gamersyde doesn't become like a certain other gaming website (I will not Name names) that makes you pay for content and still has ads all over their site I will love this site for as long as it stays alive :)

Commented on 2007-09-01 02:00:06
The ads are okay. Unlike certain gaming sites with ads are so huge and so many of them it slows down people's computers by a lot and clutters the site to death.
Commented on 2007-09-01 02:17:08
by all means add even more ads its cool with me... ill click em every now and then... love you guys
Commented on 2007-09-01 02:21:46
You'll get no complaints here. Do what you gotta do to keep the badassness coming.
Commented on 2007-09-01 02:28:04
I don't mind, the software on my computer blocks all adverts on all websites anyway so I don't actually see any on this site as it is. Im sure a small video like ign and gamespot do is fine. Afterall all those HD movies must suck for bandwidth.
Commented on 2007-09-01 02:34:56
[silly question] Does "will look *much* better " mean the player itself or the quality of the videos? [/silly question]

Also how possible would it be to have stage6 quality streams?

Thanks, and keep up the great work! :))
Commented on 2007-09-01 02:43:59
Its okay with me, I dont see any ads anyway:p

What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth you're not gonna get good viewport performance in most 3D apps with a geforce chip (50 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth and it not having a Quadro gpu limits its professional 3D software use. (51 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: as i say, i'm a 3D guy too. (51 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the entry model is a bit short on ram, having the top gtx980m gpu is probably overkill for most use, especially if your working in the adobe package. (52 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog mainly though, as a 2D and 3D artist, a workstation is just better. i take power and functionality over style personally. but it's worked for apple, maybe MS have a success on their hands (53 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: as for price. i wouldn't want the touch, it's not worth the added cost. and it's 3000 for entry level. realistically any self respecting artist would be getting the 4200 version. (56 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: the dial looks quite impractical to me. but then i like having the cintiq remote on my lap. i don't like the arm strain associated with on-screen buttons in that situation. (57 minutes ago)
