    The original argument should work for Xbox One "or any other console" If you are a silver member "Free" you get the advertisements if you are gold you get none or at lease we give you a choice in your account settings.
    I don't mind ads, so long as they're not invasive-intrusive to my activities that I'm currently partaking in.

    For the longest time I never used Adblock... because they were never that invasive for me. Suddenly ads started auto-playing video clips and kept pulsing horrible animations that distracted me from reading (or, in the case of the video, scares teh bejesus out of me). So IN cam e adblock!

    I feel sorry for those who want ads to fund what they want, but NO THANK YOU for invasive ads! It's why I canceled my cable almost 15 years ago. I'm MORE than certain MS is going to have this in mind as well.

    Im not in favor of more ads.

    As it is the current 360 dsahboard is really pushing it for me. Any more and I feel like things will be too intrusive.

    Why do you idle on the dashboard, I can fairly say im not on the dashboard for more than 2 minutes max and thats just either dling somthing or spending 20 seconds to swap to a new game or open an app.

    Maybe for the same reason why you keep defending Microsoft/Xbox Because he wants to.

    The Xbox 360 is a gaming console "and sadly so is Xbox One" therefor it should only show add's related to gaming on a xbox if any add's at all. Not Axe body spray not old spice not World Of Warcraft. As I said early'er I can accept it if silver members had add's because Microsoft dose want to make money but if you are a gold member then you should not have to see add's in every single tab. Like what is the point of someone who dose not like Walking Dead/Game of Thrones to see those ad's of them its pointless and annoying.

    I have always been a firm believer that I payed for my console I should be able to see and play whatever I want. If I want to idle at the dashboard that is my choice and I shouldn't be forced to see add's because of it.

    To give you a better answer to your question I have idled many times on my dashboard just chatting to friends using the Part/Private chat system.

    Zeta you keep defending Microsoft every single time someone say's some negative about them so I got to ask is there anything they do you don't like or not ok with Microsoft doing?????

    I defend it when people bitch about stupid shit that doesnt matter. THere is no reason you should just be chilling on the dashboard. unless your drunk and passed out. So i dont get the point of bitching about more adds there. There are allready adds there to begin with so who cares if there are more. I fired up my xbox this morning and spent a grand total of 12 seconds going to netflix and starting it up and ohh man was my day ruined by the adds. Stop bitching about shit just to bitch about it.

    And ads ruined your chat? Change the channel. Play an arcade game. Next people are gona complain about the adds that comcast plays while searching for shows or movies ondemand.

    Having to watch ads when you're paying for the console and paying more for online service is a big deal. It doesn't matter how little time we spend on it or not. It's the principle of the thing. It's another money grab by Microsoft.

    I've never seen a single ad on my playstation 3 and just because it's there on the Xbox 360 doesn't mean it should be there on the Xbox One. The more insidious part though is that they're going to be using the improved Kinect to target those ads more directly. This isn't complaining for the sake of complaining. It's a serious concern. It seems more like you're defending to defend, especially since you can't come up with an argument better than "It's already there" and "You're complaining to complain." Please, give me one good reason why we should be accepting of ads on the Xbox. Is it going to reduce the cost of the console? No. Is it going to reduce the cost of xbox live? No. So what good is it other than to line Microsoft's pockets? Maybe YOU are just trying to up your post count?

    Its there and there is nothing you can do about it. So dont buy the console becuase the dashboard screen has adds that might be tailored to what you do or like [ just like your browsers ads on the pc ] . If you dont like it so much dont buy it. Go reserve a ps4 and have a nice day. No one here is forced to purchase the console nor should they feel obligated to buy it if there are so many things about it they dont like.

    Except that if you do go online, you only see adverts from the websites you visit. Your ISP (the thing that gets you online), dosn't feed you adverts. Microsoft, the people that already sold you the console and are allowing you to access online content are feeding you adverts. Adverts that you can't turn off, which you can do on the PC.

    Would you feel happy if every time you booted up a windows machine, you had to watch a 30 second advert? If that comparison isn't any good, what about if you're running Windows 8 and say 1/4 of your desktop is taken up be an advert box that cannot be moved.

    You've already paid Microsoft for the machine. You've already paid Microsoft to access any online components of that machine. Why the hell would you be cool with giving them more money, in the form of adverts, that take up screen space and only benefit Microsoft, not yourself?

    I'm likely not going to buy one. Thanks for telling me the obvious thing to do. What does that have to do with it? I'm still able to come here and express my feelings about what I don't like. And don't say something Idiotic like "If you don't like it don't post here" this is a forum for discussion. It's not here to just praise the Xbox. Negative opinions are just as valid as positive ones. The fact that there are so many negative opinions, with valid arguments, should tell you something.


    Also, what browser ads on the PC? I haven't seen one of those in years. But those are there because they're from free services, not paid services.

    Maybe that's his point, like mine. On the PC you can stop any/all adverts from being shown. On the XBox you're not only PAYING to see them, but you can't advoid them either unless you choose not to pay.

    Yeah that was my point, I can get rid of them on the PC, can't on the Xbox.

    If you dont like how it operates instead of wasting your time bitching and moaning dont use it. Dont buy it. Dont look at it. Since this is such a grave and heavenly problem call your friends on skype, and skip the xbox. You complain about it so much i wonder why you even turn it on.

    Its not simple questions, its the same gripes for 196 pages now, people griping but still using the product or still planning on using it. Sorry but not everything is burgerking you cant always have it your way. for someone who hates the xbox and xbox one so insanely much you sure do seem to post alot in this thread.

    It's the XBox discussion thread, not the XBox praise thread.

    I've owned a 360 back when it still had the "blades" interface, way, WAY before any kind of adverts ever cropped up on the dashboard. I think I started subbing to Live right around the time that they re-did the dashboard or just before, so around 2-3 years ago. I've always moaned and complained to my friends (who also think the same) about how bad the layout is for finding even your own games, the adverts and the way the largest icon on the dashboard is an advert.

    My sub used to re-new around September but around Decemeber I think I cancelld it, for exactly those reasons. I didn't see any need to keep paying for the privillage to be shown adverts for Fifa games when I've never even put one inside my machine.

    The stupid thing with Microsoft is they had an okay deal (you pay them £40 a year to use their "service"), but it's slowly gotten worse over time. Not only is their console UI a mess (it takes about 10 button presses just to get into the Arcade games section on the store), but you're now forced to view adverts for a service you PAY for. Now Sony did the right thing, had a tottally free service and slowly improoved it over time by allowing you to go online, watch youtube videos, Netflix and play online all for free. When they started to put a cost onto it though, they give you a pretty good deal. As long as you keep subscribing, you get games for your PS3 and Vita, which you keep for as long as you're subbed and they're normally pretty good titles.

    Microsoft not only charged from the outset for a feature that didn't need to have a cost associated with it, but when they try to "improove" it, they give you Assassin's Creed 2 and an XBox Live game. Plus you've gotta look at adverts. Plus you'll soon have to have Kinect listening in and performing targetted marketting on you.

    If you honestly think you're going to win people over to wanting to pay for XBox live with the state it's in right now, unless they're an avid COD, Fifa or Halo player (who would already be paying for it), then you can't start the argument with those people. You need to be saying to Microsoft "Oi, people don't like your service, how about you make it a better deal?" rather than telling the people that don't enjoy it to buy into something they dislike.

    This clearly works, as Microsoft did that whole 180 on changing the XBone's online policies. Telling people to #dealwithit dosn't work. If Microsoft is fine with having a smaller market share then push always online, push adverts for an already paid service, push "spying" on the consumer, push agressive marketing tactics (see that guy who was in the WiiU line).

    I just don't get why someone would so ferventy choose to be an un-offical mouth-piece for Microsoft, constantly telling people that the XBOne is the best thing ever, when you're not getting paid for it and ultimately no-one cares. I only care so much as that someone who looks at this thread dosn't just read almost 200 pages of "MICROSOFT IS AWESOME! GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY!" without being able to read why they should be giving them their cash.

    The ads are bothersome because it bloats me getting to what I want to get to. I'm fine if they put tons of ads as long as they're not intrusive. Tasks shouldn't take 3 times as long to do because I have to scroll through six pages instead of two in order to get to the section I'm trying to access. If they want to put ads in the "blank" spaces that's fine with me, but don't put them in my way and make me work around them
