This is a great idea for who?

wow.. and of course you'll still have to pay your monthly XBL gold payments.. so really the only winners here are of course MS. I think it would be a dandy idea to make a point of contacting every advertiser they setup on this abomination and let them know that because they are involved with this, you will never buy a product or support them in any way.. enough people do this and before you know it the industry will walk away from this like the plague. As a side note, I am So glad I've never been tempted to own this latest generation MS or Sony console. nothing but crap and corporate greed experiments forced upon buyers.. most of which it seems are too thick or addle brained to realise it.

Understand that unless I can squeeze the tits of a hot babe in a commercial or do something as equally fun I am not going to interact with your damn ads.
