    saw this article over at Kotaku. Might front page it after they get an update.

    Somehow I also felt sony would be the first to make this move, though thats all playstation home is.

    Isn't it already enough that we pay for Gold subscriptions, now we have to pay for ads too? :tired:

    At first I was like alright? Who cares, ads are everywhere. Then remembered I pay for a subscription, yea that's not right.

    Nothing is for sure yet, but I am sure they will be offering some sort of compensation for this. Something like the last.fm comes to mind.

    eh it sucks ... but seriously ... how many of you are on the dashboard long enough to even notice ads (yes there are ads on there now) ... instead of playing games or watching a video?

    Not to mention that we don't even know what these ads are going to be like. As long as it isn't intrusive ... why would anyone even care?
