Xbox Live featured in the latest Windows Phone ad

Microsoft is steaming right along with it's half-a-billion dollar marketing campaign for the new Windows Phone. We've seen plugs in television shows highlighting emailing photos, using Bing and other Windows Phone 7 features.

The latest ad from Microsoft shifts the focus to Xbox Live. From touching on the Windows Phone 7 game "Need for Speed: Undercover" to having an Xbox Live Avatar in the male lead, the thirty second spot is all about Xbox.

Thanks goes out to JUST VISITING for tipping us on the video.

  • Finally a good commercial. If they're having any level of slow sales at this point they only have their ad department to blame for not actually telling people what the OS does and focusing on what is doesn't
  • Commercials still need to be better. Focus (no pun intended) on the People and Photo hubs.

    very funny ad
  • this is really funny i love it!!!!
  • This ad just makes me smile! It's good and I think people will be even more intrigued to go check out the WP7 lineup.
  • Very cute commercial. I lol'd @ "You're wearing a gold chain and a fedora... Do you wanna be in a boyband?" 'cause it'd be something I'd say.
  • I like it!
