Now I have to read all of them.
I guess I can't blame you, but all things considered, this ranks most closely to the annoyance that follows the time when someone first points out the right-pointing arrow in the FedEx logo, and henceforth it becomes the ONLY thing you see.
Also, perhaps Jeff "Robocop: A Documentary About Robotic Policemen" Gerstmann could subcontract his copywriting services?
Damn, ya know, I never realized it till now... but all of the taglines so far on xbox live primetime are pretty poor... and thse are even worse...
I just think because it's pre-release, they aren't trying too hard... but once the actual update rolls around, they might get better...
Personally I don't mind the ads, as long as they keep them out of my owned content and restrict them to the "Spotlight Blade". I did find it funny you where talking about the Gears ad on the Dash, and I though you where talking about the Gears ad on your site..... that sounded like a slight against you but it was more of an observation (I want you guys to make all the money in the world and keep the site rolling) keep up the nitpicking I like doing it too.
I think the Journey to the Center of the Earth card takes the cake. The top line is like the movie's title rephrased and then "awe-inspiring sites, grave danger" below it. Just brilliant. Thanks, Mr. Marketting Guy! I'll be sure to check that one out.
The sad part is that most of these don't even need text. Especially Gears 2 and Iron Man. Like . . . yeah, we know. But of course Microsoft would never let any less then 100% of their cards have two full lines of description. WE NEED TO HAVE A UNIFIED FRONT, PEOPLE!!! SHOW NO CRACKS!!
The whole NXE looks like a series of ads with a user interface buried under it. I understand the easy profit Microsoft would see by selling this effective ad space but honestly... I am already paying 15 dollars a month for something Sony offers for free. I don't want to see a bunch of ads outside of the marketplace. The blades worked... the NXE seems like yet another annoyance I can chalk up to playing a 360.
