We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
Actually it make perfect sense. There are many other services that people pay for that use adverts all the time.
-INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDERS
-Almost all of the websites anyone visits has atleast ONE advert on it.
I could understand this complaint if MS was the only company doing it, but they aren't. If you don't want to see adverts, then set your console to load a game on startup instead of going to the dashboard.
Load up my dashboard see a coca cola ad; play guitar hero see another coca cola ad.
I see things in the context of video game console and when I see the PS3 and its ad free XMB I get a little jealous.
Out of videos games there are many services which people can pay to remove ads in their content. Many video game websites offer paid subscriptions to disable all ads on the site (not mentioning the fact that many browsers now a days come with ad blockers).
My local newspaper, The Dallas Morning News offers the same thing on their website as well.
Anyways, I'm so glad I have a family plan to download the awesome sprint, t-mobile, and old spice gamer pictures and themes.
