I don't know where you live, but here there was very little in the way of advertising for Kinect Sports Rivals. There were previews online and in the rags, but no more or less than any other release to speak of during the same period of time. The number millions as it relates to advertising dollars is fairly subjective and relative, but KSR had nowhere near the amout of publicity as the other big name games released last month, in the form of Titanfall and Infamous, nor, by the amount of exposure in my experience, as South Park: Stick of Truth or even PvZ.

And I fail to see how any company selling a commercial product "shoves" said product down your throats, even big bad M$. You are given the choice whether to spend your money on said product, and at no point is said money stolen from your wallet without consent. If something doesn't appeal to you, you can opt out. That's how consumerism works.

Well, in the US, there have been commercials every other ad break. I saw it three f***ing times during Agents of Shield.

I agree but even when your skipping ahead you still notice them.

The game looks amazing and most events are really fun. Love rock climbing

I was surprised how much I enjoy it. The Kinect works better than I expected it to, so I recommended it to a friend who ended up liking it as well. I don't think it was supposed to be a killer app but it's a good representation of what the Kinect is capable of, so that should shut up some of the detractors of it.

most of the detractors don't own the system so they won't be able to experience accurate the Kinect is
