    Why not take a few dollars out of Microsoft's pocket to add to a PlayStation site's revenue, right?

    But really, we've noticed this. The problem is that Battlefield 4 and Microsoft have an ad partnership where BF4 stuff gets slapped with the Xbox One label. Due to the nature of ad packages, there's not a whole lot of control we have over this. We could specificailly request that Battlefield 4 ads not be shown on the site, but... idk, do people want that?

    Steven's on holiday for a little while, so these will probably appear from time to time for a bit yet.

    Sorry guys, times have been tough, PSU is becoming XBU, this partnership with MS advertising is just the beginning. Sony just wasn't pulling its weight, MS approached us with a proposition we couldn't refuse. Money actually came out their mouths when they talked, like magic. Some may call us sellouts, and that's probably accurate, but the whole staff is now filthy rich so that's a silver lining, right?

    At the end of the day the site has still got to make money. It does seem a bit silly to advertise on a Playstation site though.

    It isn't done "per site audience" though.

    Aye.

    Really, only fanboys should care about this. Why should anyone care what a fanboy thinks?

    Everyone should know by now most ads from pre generated ad codes basically have everything under a "Gaming" category, unless you sell ad space directly, ads like these will always popup, and this isn't the first time we've had Xbox ads, I've seen plenty of Nintendo ads too (back when Nintendo could afford them )

    Usually it is done whoever offers them the most money.

    It's great. Because all that ad revenue is being wasted on here. People are either staunch PS people or staunch microsoft oddly enough.

    both will only get the PS4 or the XBOX version regardless of the ads.


    however the ads should come with a 720p/900p disclaimer

    lol I dare not even remove adblock, the amount of ads on this site outside the US and Canada is insane.
