Ads May Infect Xbox Live Experience

Category: Gaming
Posted: 07:59PM

After already paying a premium every month for the Xbox Live service that many have come to love over the years, the last thing users want is ads imbedded into the interface. Microsoft may be doing just that however, by implementing Silverlight ads into Xbox Live. This in turn will make more money for any company who works with Microsoft to have their ad displayed, but will only make consumers that much more aggravated, especially since many Xbox customers pay for Xbox Live. Stupidly, the company is somehow claiming that the advertisements will enhance the gaming experience, though it seems as if they could only hinder it in everyway possible.

This has been done before went giving old games away for free (FarCry) And i think as long as it doesn't play audio (voice, annoying sounds etc) and it doesn't delay loading time then i dont think it will make that much of a difference to your gaming experience. Apart from making it a bit more cheesy.
