On Xbox, the ad is part of the actual experience, its 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,

Oh, I get it now: the ads are an experience.
I always thought they were just there to make money, I never looked at them as something to experience.
How foolish I have been.


It's ads on top of ads and we still have to pay for XBl for the privilege of seeing them.

I have yet to see an ad for something that doesn't potentially make my experience on Xbox One better. In other words, I only see ads that link me to digital purchases like games, DLC, movies, tv shows, etc. Have yet to see one for McDonalds or Citi Bank or anything outside of Xbox. Only the people who do not have an Xbox One believe otherwise.

I had no idea you could buy a Toyota on your XBOX.

LOL at the trolls making believe they actually own an Xbox ONE...

Hint:

Make sure you know what you are talking about before posting about something you don't own... it is called 'Google'

Silly clowns, Xbox ONE is for gamers...

I'm beginning to think you don't like talking about the XBOX ONE. You seem very interested in the men and women who post here though. Do you like videogames?

Hey look, Laylow was googling for Xbox One related bad news and found an article from June last year.

I guess he didn't come across those numerous articles about how Sony built the PS4 with DRM in mind.


The only articles that mention anything of the sort were based purely off rumours as I recall. If that's not the case then please, post evidence to back yourself up.
