People should see Final Fantasy 15 product placements.

I lament the day we start seeing running ads in games - but so long as it's limited to background stuff I don't think I'll mind so much. When it gets to the point that it is on most "Free" games on mobile devices -- where you have to stop playing to watch an ad -- that's where I absolutely draw the line.
