MS mounts massive Xbox kebab wrap ad push

Next time you have a kebab - make sure you check the wrapper.

Today's offering from the kebab shop downstairs (small doner, extra chilli sauce and lashings of pickled chillies) came wrapped in paper advertising a certain games console.

It read: "Dead or Alive 3. It can be hard to adjust to reality. Xbox. Play more. Play Dead or Alive 3."

It also said: "Dispose of after use."

We assume that means the paper wrapper - not the game or console.

a few weeks back I was a bar. In the toilet directly above the urinals they had an XBOX ad, and it was for the game Halo. In big writing it said "UPGRADE YOUR WEAPON".
