The UK is making Youtube vloggers fess up about being paid for certain aspects of their videos, we discuss everything wrong with Black Friday, a city smells like cat piss, and a hamster ate a car. Yeah that’s this week. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYBODY!
Microsoft has been trying to catch the eye of politicians as the midterm elections are gearing up in the US. Their reason? The tech giant wants them to take out targeted ads on Xbox Live (along with other Microsoft services). With over 25 million subscribers, the deal could look sweet to any politician, especially with the wide demographics of users on the service. But this isn’t the first time ads on Xbox Live have gotten political: during his first campaign President Obama had billboards inside the Xbox 360 game Burnout Paradise, and for his second campaign he advertised directly on the console’s Dashboard (although this brought along complaints from users). So what do you think? Should Microsoft push political advertising through to gamers, or should they just stay out of it and keep it neutral? Let us know in the comments!
