Adverts for games appearing on your PlayStation 4's main menu? Yes, they do indeed exist -- and this isn't the first time that they've caused a bit of an uproar. According to multiple reports, PS4 users are booting up their console to find an advert for Destiny 2 sitting on their dashboard. The advert is displayed just like a regular game or an app, except it has "Buy Now" printed underneath it. Hitting X takes you to the game's product page on the PlayStation Store.

We assume the advert is only appearing for those who don't already own Destiny 2 and have the "Featured Content" option enabled under the Automatic Downloads menu, which itself can be found in the PS4's settings. Make sure to disable that if you don't want to see ads like this one appear on your main menu.

Naturally, the seemingly widespread advert has created a bit of a stink, which we doubt has been helped by the fact that Destiny 2 is in a precarious position right now alongside Bungie, its developer. Slapping a stealth ad on PS4 dashboards probably isn't the best way to garner good will at this point.
