So, are XOne advert as bad as PS4's?

Wondering. PS4 has an advertisement for 47 Ronin as its only new demo, and that horrible new Marky Mark trailer is sponsored by Dove.

Who would have thought Sony would trump Microsoft so well in advertising to paying customers?

I think the ads were worse on the 360 dashboard, I honestly haven't noticed an ad on my ONE. I might overlook them but ya.

Try downloading the new demos. You might get lucky, or you might get 47 Ronin and Dove Men's Care.

Just trying to say, this has been out of hand for a while, said the same thing on PS4 board.

As a 360 owner, I tried to get it reversed, now it is a very ugly tumor on console gaming. Paying for paying for paying for the right to see an ad. Sad?

I think it's worse on Xbox. The ads were on the dashboard not just all over the marketplace like psn

TC is trolling the PS4 board too about ads in the PSN Store, which is where the 47 Ronin and Marky Mark ads he's butthurt about are.

Only ads I've seen on X1 are a single tile in the games store. I could care less about ads as long as they are few an unobtrusive. More revenue for X1 means more money for improving/expanding the platform. As much as ponies troll about ads and paywall, the revenue raised by them made XBL the gold standard for console online service.

I guess technically the store area is like one big ad.

I do agree the 360 dashoard was overloaded with adverts. I really wouldn't be surprised to see more updates heading that way.

No idea about PS4 but the PS3 adverts were there as well. They're just mainly Sony Store/Sony Entertainment adverts. Regardless, they're still adverts.

As long as I'm not bombarded with adverts while trying to play a game I paid for I'm okay though. I already skip all TV adverts and adblock on PC. I guess I gotta see 'em somewhere.

IMO it's slightly worse on Xbox one but the PS4 has the most unforgiving one since they make it seem like you aren't subbed to PS Plus when you first log into store.
