It brings me great shame to say this but that was hysterical. Probably a lot funnier than it should have been.

I should hate it, but I'm cracking up here. At least they're owning their shamelessness.

To be honest, found the Coleman Product placement to be a little bit more jarring. The Cup Noodle ad has a sense of humor to it that makes it more forgivable, but given that every time we camp or even start the game we see Coleman front and center you'd think that Square Enix was getting half their funding directly from them.

Is that such a bad thing for such a realistic game.

I find the Cup Noodle product placement to be fine in FF XV, the American Express logos on display at the shops now are a bit ridiculous though.

American Express, now accepted in fictional realities where America doesn't even exist. Laughing

Well...As long as people get to enjoy a ramen lunch, this product placement of Cup Noodle doesn't seem too out-of-place...

It's impossible to be mad with this kind of hilarious product placement. Laughing
