I don't mind it, but why is it such a problem for people? It's not like youtube or some websites that make you watch them, at least you have a choice.

It's never bothered me.


Maybe it's just my usage pattern, though. My Xbox is a game machine - I don't surf the net, or watch Netflix, or do anything else with it.

I put a disc in the tray and boot the game. The only time I do anything else is to grab a DLC or arcade title from the store. Advertisments have never interfered with me in any way.

Don't know about other people, but my 360 starts with the PLAY DISK icon already highlighted. Simple press of the A button seems to bypass any ads.

Also, any non-disk game seems able to be pinned. Which is one icon down from the PLAY DISK icon.

I assume most of the people making the complaint of "I pay for this service and don't want ads" must not pay for a lot of services in the world. Seems pretty ridiculous expecting MS to be the only exception to the rule.

Hell, I can't even get my Gas Bill without an ad for a thermostat company.

This will only end in an argument between non live users. They seem to be the only ones that really care.
