Sorry, I'm not stupid enough to pay anything close to $60/yr for XBL. Most of us aren't.

You're on your own here, kiddo.

This.

And the ads are no big deal.

Yeah, first response makes a good point. You can get a year of XBL for close to half that price.

That said, the ads do annoy me a bit. I don't like the concept of paying for online and getting bombarded with ads. But the thing is, can you blame MS? They're making millions off the ad space, you'd do the same if you could.

YOU pay $60 a year.

I don't get why people complain about this. I've never been bothered by any ad on the dashboard, heck, some of them even give you free codes/themes/pics/avatar stuff

Why do people get annoyed about it, you pay for the online service and apps etc, the adds are just there.

You turn your xbox on to play a game or use an app etc, I press the play game widget or scroll across to YouTube or whatever, the adverts don't even enter my mind.

I think the service should be free. Half the year i play single player games and i dont constantly play online,so i feel ripped off when my gold expires.

Look at how much money MS and Sony were losing with their consoles. And people come out and call them greedy for Ad revenue. Sony will adopt more ads too.

You are not greedy if you want to make a profit and not lose money for first 4 years. Otherwise the companies will opt out of making consoles. Would you rather that?

Ads don't bother me because they are not in my face and distracting, don't even notice them.

If they get like the annoying ads on the internet where you are on a webpage and try to click a link but a big ad is pushing the screen down loading an annoying in your face, won't let you surf, hide the X so you can't close it AD, that is another story. Personally, I think ad executives are idiots lately. I see in your faces ads like that, to me, it is a guarantee I will never buy your product.

So, as long as that does't happen, I am good.

Idiots pay 60. Smart people pay 30-40. And we pay so we don't get junk service like they have on the Wii U and PSN.
