Sony had NFL Sunday ticket last gen. Will make zero difference. People buy consoles for games period. You can get NFL on everything, no one will by an xbox just for it. Pre-order sales speak for themselves.



The way I see it, Activision + EA = Microsoft, and Ubisoft + [Insert big Japanese publisher/developer here] = Sony

Pre-orders have nothing to do with lifetime sales and the opion's of people who try the systems out. The hardcore crowd is just that, the hardcore. also being that xbox one is 100 more, people are broke and are trying to save money.  Once xbox comes down, I'm sorry they are making all the right moves and yes, NFL fans wanting all the extra's that come with xbox one is going drag a lot of people over. You seem to not understand sports. The fantasy options will bring people over. The options people have on the xbox ONE are yet to be seen by normal average people. Most of my friends are gamers but not hardcore going on websites and watching E3. the NFL will advertise them so much that you can bet it's going push the sh-t out of it. So your telling me advertiseing doesn't work. LOL

Where did I say advertising doesn;t work????

 

Ps4 is making all the right moves and the reaction to both consoels show that. The PS4 out selling x1 in MS dominated america does mean something, saying it doesn't is pure denial. 

 

Sony can't advertise? They don;'t as much as MS but they don't need to.

Um...no. If Sony sells a larger amount of consoles than MS and gains they majority of multiplat gamers whom they and MS have always been after by default they would get preferential treatment without paying a dime to EA. Thats how it was back in the PS2 era. MS had to pay EA to keep their launch attractive in Europe, because they know Sony has an natural advantage there. Microsoft is now the official brand of the NFL....four hundred million goes a long way. In reality its any mans game, Microsoft is paying to get the edge on commercial perception, when the reality is in terms of multiplats they are virtually equal and price will be the key as to why there might be a disparity in the beginning.

Sony has the Japanese publishers by default because Japan supports the home brand. They see no major difference between Microsofts product and Sony over there. The Japanese publishers treat MS mostly equally outside of Japan due to demand.
