Microsoft Comments On 360 Dash Advertisements

Following yesterday news that the company would later this year be placing advertisements on Xbox Live, Microsoft have moved to assure users that the ads will “enhance, not interfere” with their experience.

Posting on his blog, Microsoft’s Major Nelson(Larry Hryb) has said:

I need to let you know that you don’t need to worry about a huge influx of ads across the dashboard. One of our core principles is to enhance, not interfere with the gaming experience, and we work directly with our partners to only deliver experiences that are relevant to the LIVE community. Silverlight will help make those ads a more organic part of the dashboard, like we’ve done with some of the NXE slots in the past. No one on the team wants to turn the dashboard into something that looks like like Shibuya Crossing. That’s just not good for anyone.

The only question left is with all the new ads, where is my  50 bucks going, why im a still paying the same exact price for what looks to be even more ads.
