THQ and Massive Incorporated today announced plans to bring THQ video game titles to Massive's dynamic in-game advertising network.

"Dynamic, in-game advertising not only offers publishers new revenue opportunities, but when done properly creates added realism that can actually enhance game play," said Kelly Flock, executive vice president of worldwide publishing, THQ. "We are excited to team with Massive because we believe their network strategy and sensitivity to game play will deliver value to publishers, advertisers and gamers. We look forward to exploring together what we see as a world of new possibilities for delivering advertising to the medium of interactive entertainment."

"As a leading, global video game publisher with world class content, THQ's inclusion in the Massive Network significantly expands the reach of the new media we are working with our partners to create," said Mitchell Davis, chief executive officer, Massive "THQ is already working on ways to incorporate a range of dynamic advertising into future games, which makes this relationship ideal for Massive both from a strategic and technical standpoint."

The Massive Network is the first and only network of its kind to deliver dynamic advertising seamlessly to an aggregated audience across premiere video games titles. The Massive Network enables publishers and developers to capture incremental revenues through the aggregation of the video game audience. Developers are able to integrate real-world ad campaigns that are timely, and enhance the game environment with more realism. Twenty-nine premier game publishers have committed more than 100 titles to the Massive Network.
