Make note, people. December 11th marks the day that we get our happy little trigger fingers on the sparkly new PSN game ‘Astro Tripper’. PomPom Games released this on the PC which went on to win awards in 2001.

Today it has been announced that THQ, SEGA, Eidos and Midway have all signed exclusive in-game advertising deals with major advertising company, DoubleFusion.
This means that we can all expect to see some high profile product placement and promotions in a number of upcoming titles from the aforementioned publishers.
