    People ( That is, the casual crowd ) in general will react to what their mates buy as long as they are told it's shit-hot by their limited pool of knowledge and by jove, they will stick to it like Apple fans unless the mood changes enough.

    Microsoft will sell enough XB1's through sheer ignorance as Sony did last generation with the PS3. This will make it a more even contest than MS deserves for this shower of a reveal.

    Agreed. I spoke to one of my friend who is not really knowledgeable about video games, he doesn't even play that much. He plans on getting the PS4 for its cheaper price and because majority of his friends are getting it.

    SONY advertises when? I haven't seen anything about the PS4 on any TV slots and yes I do know all the sports events SONY's been advertising through but not everybody watches sports. If they were advertising towards everyone then there should be commercials for Knack on the popular children/cartoon networks and you should be seeing Drive Club on channels like Speed.

    I've had TBS or FX on all afternoon the last couple days, and I've seen the Greatness Awaits commercial 5 times during different shows/movies. They are indeed advertising. Maybe not much, but more than with the PS3. I don't remember seeing any commercials for the PS3.

    I'm Canadian, EH. My research and marketing labs have found very low numbers at peak television viewing hours and we have close to a hundred workers that view different channels 24/7 and out of those hundred channels there is only 7 consistent broadcasters and yes you are right about the greatness awaits but through our test studies and Q/A surveys we have found that 36% of people tune that commercial out and would prefer to see more selection of commercials instead of seeing the same one over and over again and for my preference the actor in the commercial is not a good fit.
