Sorry, I think they're missing a step where they explain why the console I've paid £459 is running any ads at all?
I am so sick and tired of Microsoft's fucking sinister bullshit. Ten, fifteen years ago you bought a new computer, it came with an OS disc and you got a full suite of Microsoft Office. Now, you can build a recovery disc, meaning you can only install the OS you've paid for onto one computer in your house, you get a 30 day trial version of Office, and Microsoft Works now has a massive ad bar up the side unless you pay to remove it.
If they'd done it from the start I'd say, 'fine, fuck you and have a nice day' but charging money for shit that used to be free is the kind of anti-consumer bollocks that justifies all the hate Microsoft receive and proves that they are either completely blind to public opinion or just don't give a shit about anything other than their profits.

Microsoft seriously needs to do something about their PR. Out of the frying pan and into the fire I guess? except they started the fire themselves?
You know...I am starting to think that #dealwithit retard is about as PR smart as Microsoft gets...
Perhaps I should send them my Resume... I have never worked in PR before, but even I could do better than they are.
I already offered my PR services to Microsoft. I said I'd accept payment in the form of a Playstation Plus subscription.
They're yet to take me up on my offer, but I'm feeling pretty confident about it.
