Xbox owners who want to avoid the controversial feature
Anxious Xbox owners continue to stand in against a new feature. They may even consider abstaining from their Xbox Series X/S over it.
It’s almost as if 2023 was the year that Xbox found its rhythm again. An impressive showcase in June has everyone excited about the coming future of the console and the response to Starfield is a good indication that Microsoft is the one to compete with PlayStation.
Unfortunately, every now and then there is a chance for rain to be expected to. This is why people are becoming extremely nervous over statements made by Microsoft Executive Sarah Bond which imply we might see someday ads playing within games on our Xbox games.
“We spend a significant amount of time on how to bring more diversity to our business model as well as how we can create new alternatives,” said Bond told Rolling Stone.
“We frequently talk concerning Game Pass because subscription is one of the options we have expanded: there was pay-to-play and then free-to-play before we launched Game Pass. We’ve discussed our experiments with different methods, for instance what the word “advertisement” mean within games, which is much the most common in mobile games There are models which work on PC or console? Do you have other models in which there are timed segments of games, and things similar to such?” She continued. “Providing artists with a range of choices and choices allows users to explore and create whatever they want in creating exciting and immersive experiences that don’t have to be molded into molds.”
Even though nothing is written as a fact, some are quick to denounce this concept.
“I’ll be selling my Xbox when they begin making games that feature advertisements. Imagine being far from the rest of the pack and the response you get will be… additional advertisements on your ads-filled dashboard” an account on Twitter wrote.
“Same! I’m turning my back on Xbox at the time they’ll make this happen,” replied OldPixel1984. “Ads on games. They don’t understand of what people need. She has no taste.” tweeted @Jackgamer74. Which may be a little too harsh.
Although Microsoft hasn’t yet confirmed that it is going to put advertisements in games but it’s not the first time an organization has attempted this. EA had to face a lot of criticism after it inserted ads in UFC 4, but they were swiftly taken off. Fans have also criticized Warner Bros. Games as “shameful” after Hogwarts Legacy ads were featured inside Mortal Kombat 11.
