Baseball Superstars 2008 uses in-game advertising, a growing trend among mobile games. In the popular game, digital ads are placed on billboards and buildings in the background.
One interesting tidbit is that the ads are not fixed in the Baseball Superstars 2008. Instead, they rotate monthly so that every marketing company gets a chance at the spotlight.
"We're really excited to have in-game advertising hit the mobile platform," said Stephanie Huang, Marketing Manager of GAMEVIL USA, Inc. "Mobile advertising is the new wave of advertising that will begin to earn the spotlight as it establishes its presence not only in mobile games, but also on the mobile platform as a whole. In-game advertising is just one of the first steps to a rising trend that is already becoming more prevalent as companies begin to turn their attention to reaching out to consumers on the mobile platform."
