Locked: MS paying yourtubers to promote the X1

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

This is nothing. Their campaign against the chromebook after it had a brilliant year is however ridiculously silly and shows their nasty side.

Seeing how Google owns YouTube they should "play dirty" with these videos to get back at them, but I doubt they would stoop so low.

It is silly for people to think this is some kind of low or anything. This is not isolated to MS since I know a few companies including my own that use YT for advertising. The reason why is because of millions of people view videos and advertisements on the site. For a business as big as MS, Sony and Nintendo, you would guess they all would be hitting popular YT people to do ads.

Marketing is about getting your product exposure and hitting your target market. Sometimes I do wonder what world a lot of people live in. I do not know how many people I have seen talk about Doritos and Mountain Dew in the same breath as the 360 or X1. Sounds like pretty good marketing strategy if you ask me.



Just Microsoft living up to their name, nothing more. Only company that's even worse is Apple.



According to a new study; YouTube, Xbox.com, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.

It's pretty smart actually.



How much is Sony paying you to talk bad about M$ every chance you get? They are paying me $100 a week. I'd do it for free, but daddy gotta eat.

 I don't see how that is a bad thing. They are simply advertising...

It's good there's some transparency to this but overall, not so good. It's good for MS but I consider this to be a dirty tactic.



and you couldn't bother to actually search if a thread like this was already made?

I see nothing wrong with it? It's a relatively cheap and effective form of advertisement.

Google does play dirty by not allowing Youtube app on Windows Phone.  They don't want to give MS any opportunity to gain market share either and I can understand them saying market share is too low but when MS developed the app for it's users, Google blocked it from working.  So much for "we do no evil".  There are millions of Windows Phone users out there and they are all impacted by Google's move so don't be a blind and naive fan-boy by thinking only MS plays dirty.
