How to Block Xbox Live Ads

Posted by | December 10, 2011

The gaming community has taken to the latest console update on the Xbox in much the same way as Europe took to the black plague. The most common target of their burning torches has been the ads that run wild across the console, obliterating the actual functionality they’re paying to use. Fortunately, we live on the internet, and the internet routes around damage. Want to kill those obnoxious ads? Game Politics has the story.

    Exploring the new Xbox update, I went from zero to rage in 11.6 seconds. It wasn’t that everything had changed, it wasn’t that I had to hunt across the options and menus to find what I needed. No. The blasphemy that set me to clawing through furniture and chewing the controller was the simple fact that I could not find what game was in the machine. A simple thing, you’d think.

    Turns out, my game was hidden in a tiny corner, overshadowed by a gigantic, moving, pulsating ad that filled most of the screen.

    Microsoft’s priorities are pretty obvious, now. So, if the service is so plainly ad-supported, why are we still paying for it?
