Microsoft wants gamers to stay online so they can feed them advertisements

I can see it now. Before a match in Halo 5 starts a 30 second commerical for Mt.dew or doritos will play along with short 5-10 second spots between matches.

If these rumors happen to come to fruition, I can guarantee you MS will not be acting unilaterally here, Sony will follow suit.


Maybe not:

While the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 apparently resemble PC architecture, other development sources claim that Sony's upcoming next-gen equipment is a preferable platform to work on, and its OS is less "oppressive" than Microsoft's next-gen solution.

Microsoft has been doing a lot this gen to close their system down. Sony seems a lot more laid back in many respects.


If Sony doesn't implement these restrictions, and Orbis comes out at a decent price and still offers PSN next outing at no charge, then I do foresee them leading the industry again with possibly PS2 numbers again and MS falling to the way side.

MS has been pissing me off for awhile now, and if they feel so inclined, can let their market share plummet with such a drastic and polarizing decision for all I care.

Microsoft has always seen xbox as advertising machine. Sony doesn't see Playstation platform that way


I own Wipeout HD, complete with commercials during loading screens. Both companies like advertising revenue.

Never played any Wipeout game. What did it have? Actual commercials or billboard advertisements?

I just thought he was genuinely concerned and didn't want to be disadvantaged with adds in Dark Souls games...

Hmm I can see it happening. But what would happen if you get disconnected from live, does the system shut down? Constant internet connection, I dunno... then again my computer i always connected.
