That's so depressing...

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.

Don't worry, I'll vouch for them.

And just like that, every credible Youtube reviewer is out of my playlist.

It is fucking ridiculous.

Nintendo should do this for their next Nintendo direct, it could sway those profits in the right direction.

Any links for the other Youtubers referenced in OP? Can you translate what the guy in OP is saying?

Alright guys, what's our hashtag going to be? Let's set fire to some internet dumpsters and overturn some internet cars.

#XboneNoAstroturfing?

I really want to work in games journalism, but I'm afraid if I actually get my foot in the door I'll fall into stuff like this.

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.

YouTube... Machinima... Journalistic integrity?

LOL

Not surprising though, am I correct to assume most is not all companies are guilty of this at some point?
You know as well as I do this will spread to publications, provided it hasn't already.

Katy Perry's next song to have an XB1 rhyme + ~300 million views she usually gets = ~1 million dollars.

Looks like standard MCN monetization taken out of context. Xbox has adbuy with Machinima - Machinima circulates to their channels.

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

I'm having a hard time seeing why this matters. Unless a company trying to market to their target audience is wrong or something.

I'm going to assume it's just a Machinima/MS partnership? Or are other MCNs on board?

Either way, can't wait until the backlash of people that don't receive their pay.
