View Full Version : Where is the advertising?

If XBL is coming otu in just a little over a month, then why are there no pre-release advertisements. I mean, hell, in Best Buy ads they advertise $hi77y stuff like scooby doo a month before it comes out. If XBL is a revolutionary thing, which it is, then why are there no Ads in the paper?

in my personal experience, most people DONT know about XBL...my cousin has an XBOX and didn't know about it, most people at my school besides the diehard xboxers don't know about it (unless we bragged about it to them:D )

I thought MS planned on making loads of comercials and such. Didn't they spend something million? Whatever, they'll think up something.

OH YEA!! It's all over my GamePro and EGMS! It's also on the OXM mags too! But, that still doesn't really promote XBL, unless they suddenly reveal who Voden05 is and it just happens to be Bill Gate's gamer tag!!!!!:D
