Free memberships will require users to listen to some ads

Microsoft made an interesting announcement today regarding its upcoming Xbox One gaming console. Albert Penello, Microsoft’s Senior Director of Product Management and Planning, has confirmed that Xbox One owners that subscribe to Xbox Gold won't have to subscribe to Xbox Music – the service will come at no additional cost with an Xbox Gold subscription.

The only “catch” is that the free subscription to Xbox Music will mean they have to endure "periodic ads." There's no indication of exactly how many ads users will have to put up with.

Microsoft’s Xbox One will launch November 22 with a price tag of $499.

I'll believe Sony has a better grasp of what consumers want when I see it, and the same with MS. That's why I'm waiting until next year sometime to buy a next gen console.
