But smart nonetheless. I guess the people watching the videos already have an xbone, so no harm done?

So this get's out the same day major Nelson asks for us to stop the internet hate.

There is a reason MS are getting such bad PR and it's stuff like this.

Also inb4 someone changes the EA/IGN gif to MS/YT.

Going by Tyrax's posts it would seem the defense it to not believe that it's true.

The amount you get paid per 1000 video views. Non-partnered people get somewhere in the neighborhood of $1-2, $2+ with a partner network depending on your arrangements with them, though that's for successfully served ads and not just views.

Oh snap this is honestly a real thing then? At first this sounded so dirty I didn't believe the rumor was true, not at all....Now it appears to be picking up steam, this might actually be real.....



So where does Microsoft stop? Website reviews? Twitter accounts? Gaffers? I bet Wario could absolutely make bank if he made some pro Microsoft tweets....

nope, it is not an ad... it is in addition to the normal ads that you run... so basically be nice to XB1 and promote it, and they give you money + you get regular YT monetization

LOLOLOL! Hey, at least they're not hiding the fact that they're shilling. As long as it's transparent like a "Brought to you by the Team over at Xbox One!" then it seems fine. But like others have already said, it probably wont.

I wouldn't even be surprised at that point… a Just Dance game was heavily advertised in her song Last Friday Night. She would be perfect to promote Kinect.
