We pay $60/year to get more ads. YAY!!!

I picture these people as the same ones that complain every time there is a dashboard update too. Hulu Plus, Cable TV, and lots of other services require you to pay a subscription and still have ads on it. Apparently, Netflix has spoiled folks and think subscription = no ads. It's hard to believe you guys didn't notice this has always been the case for Live, by that I mean ads on dashboard.

In all seriousness, how much time do you spend on the dashboard? I am playing games or in an app, so I am on the dashboard for less than 30 secs. It would be great for no ads, but if that cost us an extra $5 a month would you pay for it? I know I wouldn't...

The sad part is that there is only one ad per page on the dashboard. Which are tucked away on the bottom right hand corner. Everything else is just showing you what's available on Xbox live.

People blow everything way out of proportion.

Even if you do pay the full $60 (although, yeah-- why?), it sofa cushion change. $5 a month.

I payed for like 2 years of gold when xbox 360 came out then stopped paying for it because it just wasn't worth it. I have a PS3 as well just buy multiplatform games for it no online fee.

If this makes you angry/frustrated/annoyed, what do you do when you browse the web? :P
Where are your rants against Google, Gamefaqs, Gamespot, or pretty much everything on the internet, because there are ads everywhere?
Do you realize that these ads aren't intrusive? I could see a point, if there were intrusive.
Can't we argue about something meaningful, like why can't we get some new video codecs or better media functions in general? Since Microsoft wants our Xbox 360's to be the entertainment hub of our living rooms/game rooms?

I want my ad free Blades Dashboard back!!! Simple fast & no Lady GAGA & all that other crap the media tries to push on to me!!!


Blades as ad free? I don't think so.
Granted there were less ads, but also less content overall. Either way, it's hardly 'ad free'.
