So the Kinect will make the ads even worse on the Xbone?

The opposite is true actually. I will opt in for targeted advertising and finally get relevant ads instead of random ones. But if you want random ads you don't have to opt in.

What if ads have ni effect on you and you are the type of person that researches what they want?

If ads have no effect on you then this is a non-issue. But if you're like the majority of people then ads can create top-of-mind awareness. They don't make you buy things you don't want.

Far Cry 2 had the Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Liberty as driveable cars. Which creates a weird scenario where soldiers in a war-torn (and UN Arms Embargoed) African nation are driving brand new Jeeps.
Crackdown had prominent billboards which changed depending on which sponsor was supporting them. At the moment, since there are no sponsors, they instead display some leaderboard statistics which scroll when you look directly at them. They take a moment to load, so the placeholder image is used until the leaderboard results are ready... a billboard for the 2007 Dodge Caliber.
Guitar Hero III... A prominent advertisement for 5 Gum was on the song selection screen, the music video took place on the "Pontiac Stage", there were special "Axe Effect" guitars...
Doritos Crash Course... COME ON!
Etc etc
