    that may be true in some aspects but what the fuck is with microsoft and cluttering Live with ads and now the dashboard...?

    [​IMG]

    yes thats right kids, apparently your $50 a year isnt good enough to help pay for things like exclusive GTA DLC... and "exclusive" Fallout DLC...

    something tells me they are really pushing their luck with their loyal users with this one, im not even a "loyal user" and i think this is bullshit :o

    i would be damn pissed if sony tried to pull this shit on us, but i could at least try to justify it because they dont charge.. but still ..

    da fuck... Microsoft :nono:

    just to clarify, before this gets out of had, this is NOT a "Versus" thread, its about Microsoft putting ads on the dashboard...

    although it probably will get out of hand anyways :o

    why do you care so much if you dont even have an xbox?

    adds suck but the ones on nxe dont seem too intrusive. I bet sony will come up with something similar once they get rid of the non user friendly user face they have now.

    This is no different than adds in home and what not.

    Its possible that if this is successful microsoft will lower the price for live to increase its userbase even further.

    i care becasue whatever MS does, sony might do, and vice verse. oh and false, this isnt like home, home is a program i can chose not to run this would be like ads on the XMB and thats no bueno broski. making a fair judgment on Mircosofts marketing strategys based on the past i dont see them lowering the price of live when people are paying by the millions right now.

    my point is i think MS is getting cocky in the respect that they know youll pay to play... its like Gasoline to a lot of gamers no matter how high gas prices go, we all gotta get to work. no matter how many ads they put into live or the dashboard youll still play $50 to play modern warfare with your buddys.... and thats what bothers me...

    who the fuck cares, economy is rough and theyre looking to save, make money.. what a perfect medium to do so. as long as it doesnt get in the way like online videos with commercials and bullshit ill just ignore it.
