You knew this before launch.

Microsoft even said it themselves:

http://www.vg247.com/2013/07/04/xbox-one-built-with-advertising-in-mind-kinect-integral-to-next-gen-adverts/

“On Xbox, the ad is part of the actual experience, it’s not something that is outside. The only difference is that the advertisement we have is quite small and not disruptive so people are not aware of clicking on the banners because they know this is a part of the whole experience on the dash.

One source called the development of adverts for Xbox One “exciting”, because, “the 360 console wasn’t built with advertising in mind, it was more of an afterthought, so we’ve had to adapt to the technology and how we work to fit them in to the console, whereas this new one is going to have advertising in mind.


This entire console was build around advertising.


Sony has patents to interupt games for ads.


And Sony also got a patent to disable used games, where is it now?

Technically, they bring in revenue to make your online experience better.


Wtf are you talking about? You don't have a visible Xbox Live Gamertag, you must be talking out of your ass. Where does my money for an XBL Gold subscription go then? Pray tell.

You can fully disable all ads. I've seen it, very simple.

When you buy an XBone it's kind if inherent in the deal that you agree to pay to watch commercials. Should've bought a PS4 if you like games more than ads.

Umm...

Pretty much, don't know why people are surprised or upset now.

I've yet to notice the ads.

The little boxes titled "Featured" on the Xbone UI and the DLC they recommend you should buy.

Ads are one of the worst things about the xb1 in my opinion.


right there are so many.... like 1

then you go to ps4 store and are told the price of psn+ on every god damn page even when you already have it.

I would not be surprised if that psn+ ad is on the store more than 20 times. This is by far the worst spam of advertising I have ever seen on consoles, but because its sony, its ok.
