Recently Microsoft's advertising standards have been under scrutiny after adopting some less than honest advertising practices.
Recently we reported that Microsoft were paying Youtuber's to create adverts for Xbox One to help promote the failing console which caused some controversy and the underhanded tactics were put to an abrupt stop.
The latest tactic adopted by MS is an advertising campaign that encourages gamers to part with their old Sony PS3 games consoles in exchange for $100 an Xbox One:
These kind of tactics are creating an even bigger divide between gamers and the Xbox One as its reputation sinks even lower.

Whilst this response is hilarious, it does also highlight how desperately ridiculous this latest advertising campaign really is.
What are your thoughts , are these kind of tactics going to far or is it a harmless bit of fun?
