Lately it occured to me that there were actually quite a lot of CD-i developers advertising itself in their CD-i games. Also Philips was an obvious banner in games. Have you noticed them? TripMedia in Burn:Cycle, The Philips logo in Tennis Open, Ultra CD-i Soccer and also in GOAL (pictured), the PRL logo in Ram Raid, The Vision Factory logo in The Apprentice. The Infogrames logo in Tennis Open, PixelHazard in Lucky Luke. The Philips POV references in Thunder in Paradise: All small advertisings to get the name of the developer more popular. These days in-game advertising is becoming more and more popular now that developers find out that they can earn money with it. Did it happen on other consoles as much as it did on CD-i?
