Getting Paid To Say Nice Things About Microsoft

They weren't paid to say nice things..

They were paid extra to mention Xbox.. Which they'd be using anyways..

As a condition to the extra money, you couldnt disparage the people offering this opportunity.. Pretty common sense and standard practice..

Make all the Xbox hate videos you want.. Just don't expect ms to pay you for them

This is what happens when you bribe people to say nice things about a niche(If I'm using the word correctly) product...
