First, I must clarify that I understand that it will play games, and advertisements wont prevent that. I am just looking back to how the 360 dashboard pretty much went from a non eyesore NXE/KXE to whatever the current, windows8-tablet-style ad hell it is now, and I cannot help but wonder if the new xbox will continue that trend?

It was designed with advertising in mind, They've stated that clearly.

I can't say anything for the XB1, but I've never really understood the complaints about the 360 dashboards current set up. I only ever see one "ad" on my dashboard and it's one tiny square shoved all the way down into the corner.

It must be different in the US but here in Asia, the dashboard advertises only games.

The dashboard is terrible now. It's like it's made for touch screens/kinect. Especially when you now have to search for games and they make you use the abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz layout instead of the popup keyboard which is way faster.

I am totally fine with the ads on my 360..... they always have marketplace advertisements, but they usually are games on sale/other deals. Ive saved some moolah because of them.

+1 for ads!

It's a 'core part' of the experience. I thought this was common knowledge.

Exactly, this isn't a conspiracy, Microsoft proudly admits this.
