First Xbox One Ad Airs on US TV
Posted by Ken Barnes
Shows no games.
The first television advert for Xbox One has been aired on US TV, and it didn't show any games.
That seems to be the point that everyone is fixated on, despite the fact that it was shown during the NFL pre-show events and featured a bunch of things that you can do with your Xbox One related to the NFL. Video calls on Skype during the game, the Fantasy Football app, and NFL Personalized Highlights were all shown, but the Twittersphere is ablaze with people who are upset that there wasn't any gameplay to be found.
We kind of see the uproar - they could at least have shown Madden NFL 25, surely - but what do you think? Was it as bad as the absolutely inscrutable PlayStation 3 ads from back in the day? Check out the commercial below, and let us know.
