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.


Yeah right, MS losing money?

They charge you for pretty much everything, have ads on the dashboard, take a percentage from digital purchases on XBL(from what I've read), make Xboxes break like they're made of cheese so you have to repair it or buy a new one, and you think they lose money?

Just wait until they put ads in every game you play; you'll think them greedy soon enough.

didn't read any of topic. . .

MS getting more ads helps to prevent the price of the service from going up

ads are easy to ignore

win-win

please explain Sony and their DRE fiasco of the PS2 and the YLOD fiasco of the PS3 and NOT having an extended warranty to deal with those issues and yet they lost even more money than MS

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.


No matter how you spin it, paying 30 dollars a year for ad's and renting the ability to play any game you OWN online is still incredibly wasteful. I've never subscribed to any console service but at the very least you get discounts and even free games with PSN+.


This. Whether you pay $60 or $30, you're still letting Microsoft bend you over. You're not smarter than the "idiot" who paid $60.

Microsoft has almost always had XBL on their consoles(unlike Sony), so they've profited from digital purchases and memberships longer than Sony.
Also, Xbox 360s seem to break faster than PS3s(I treated my 360 well, and it still had the RRoD after about 2 years...but my PS2 and PS3 haven't had problems since I bought them)

So, there's part of the reason that Sony lost more money.

Do people actually just stare at their dashboard all day and get angry about ads? Really?

I'm on the dashboard for 10 minutes (at most) out of gaming sessions that can last up to 2 hours. I can't believe people actually get this upset about something which you won't even notice once you start playing your game, movie, etc.

Pretty sure the rrod's not covered by the extended warranty were VASTLY outnumbered by ylod's and dre's which Sony refused to address with a warranty ended up making Sony a lot more money due to rebuys yet they lost more money
