Xbox one designed with marketing in mind

Recommended Posts

I just noticed these annoying advertisements on the Xbox 360

 

Since when did gaming consoles become a marketing platform ?

 

Then I came across this,

Well... since they got hooked up to the internet.

Is there similar things happening with the PS3 and PS4 dashboards?

Do you mean that the army (of which country?) is not legit or that it is "gross stuff"? :unsure::w00t:

 

Actually if I had to find a number of kids willing to use weapons/combat I would be likely to place ads on a gaming platform, on specific games, like on Call of duty or other FPS's , more than I would on the Wii and on Guitar Hero or on a smartphone on Candy Crush Saga.

I doubt switching would make a difference. It would only be a matter of time before you see ads on all the internet connected consoles.

Microsoft X-box is basically an PC gaming engine. PC games are mostly FPS. You are all right if thier was no X-box then we would not see all the shooter crap. And all would be right. Because of this Shadowrun got ruined on the 360. To make things worst the X-box itself kinda defeated itself with cross-platforming. Were some games could play online. Look at Perfect Dark Zero. The thing is an utter mess. Everything on the X-box and so forth Microsoft is pure crap and otherwise would have benifited from being on an Nintendo, Sega, or Sony console. X-box is the crap box.

I can't say I totally agree with this, but I don't like military advertising in the movie section when I haven't viewed any war movies on my console. I'm just not going to buy a next gen console till my 360 breaks
