Billboard commercials will appear in Sony Online Entertainment's PlanetSide this month, streaming ads into the massively-multiplayer first-person shooter's in-game universe.

The inevitable move is part of a deal between Sony and in-game ad network Massive, which has also worked with Ubisoft and Vivendi.
