Forums - Gaming Discussion - MS paying yourtubers to promote the X1

Ok Microsoft has hit an all time low....they are now paying youtubers to promote the Xbox one.

How desperate and embarrasing can they get.

Something wrong with this?? Companies pay people to endorse their products all the time and YT is huge these days, especially in the kid to teen market. If anything this is the smartest advertisement move they have made

No issue with this as long as it says paid advertisement in the video.

It doesnt surprise me. I came to expect such underhanded moves from Microsoft.

Ok, so where´s my check?

My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

I don't think there is anything morally wrong with it. It's just pathetic that MS would need to pay for viral marketing when the communities usually should do it for free.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

What's wrong with that? Its good advertising for them. Its only $3 per 1000 views. Which means they will pay some $3000 for 1 million views. That's way cheaper than advertising on television which we all know MS has been doing a lot for the X1.
