    Wait, does this mean that whenever you play a game you will see a commercial on boot up? And also is the pciture above a new dashboard or something?

    Since when?

    Monopolyman I don't think that is the case. I heard Buzz say it is only with video apps. I'm not sure on the specifics myself to be honest.

    no i believe it's real, it's not giving free marketplace stuff just multiplayer will be free, and it wasn't originally from ttg it was a source that ttg posted from.

    Okay so I pay $50 a year for PS+, I get to do everything I can on Xbox but I get a plethora of free content well worth over $30 a month. I don't have to pay if I don't want and still can play online and use all the apps and I never have to see an add.

    I pay $60 a year for Xbox Live and without it I can't do anything really. Not only am I essentially forced to pay this $60 fee, I am also forced to watch Adds.

    Where is the Justice?

    I dont do anything with apps, but its not really that big of deal anyways. MS is a money whore, not much we can do about though.
