a video by Microsoft for Superbowl Sunday. they went big with it it seems. a lot of endorsements by ball players and the like. they also flew some gamers out to the game and gave them the star treatment as well as giving away Superbowl tickets, free XB1's, and free rides around New York.

Microsoft is really using the NFL to push their system during the launch year. and they're doing a good job with it too with how they are getting into the community.

ALSO...also...

this year's Madden Bowl Champ...Eagles!!

Yeah, Atletico vs Real Madrid was a pretty good football match today.

Smart on Microsofts part... Football, both American and otherwise = snooze fest. Commercials suck, games sucks more. When do pitchers and catchers report... then Im interested.

@blue_hazy_basic

I was playing Football Manager on my PC when I was offered the Scotland job. I knew it was a poor squad with no future, so I declined the offer. I then put the phone down and got back to Football Manager.

(joke I stole from the internet)

Silly European, this is about the sport where the foot barely touches the ball.

I wonder how many calls the police will receive of domestic violence in the loosing team's region and how much it will cost the city of the winning team due to parties and riots?

Stay classy America.

These American sports are confusing me, you are probably correct. Only thing I know is that after you have played it for a few years you get an eggbrain.

@mems_1224: it is certainly a game augmented in person. No doubt... Yeah baseball to me has always been a conversive game. Summer night games with a 6 pack... Ugh I effin hate winter.

This is too american for my taste

#40 Posted by Ratchet_Fan8 (5523 posts) -

silly americans with their Commerical-based Sport. Hand Egg e-yuck

It annoys the rest of the world since Futbol is exactly that,your feet,and a ball. Not the size of a foot converted to a ball.

howevs,Sony dominates the UEFA CL futbol which is pretty smart,MS is settling for Superbowl. In the long run its the UEFACL that will win it for Sony.

For you American System Warriors. Is American football match supposed to be this slow and boring? I'm really trying to keep myself entertained, but they're just standing on the pitch doing nothing 80 percent of the time.

American football is the second most boring sport on Earth. Only golf is more boring.

And you're right. It's 3 second of play, then 2 and a half minutes of a bunch of fat guys getting back into position, a bunch of old guys peering into a TV screen to try and make a call, and Gatorade commercials, only to repeat ad nauseum.

The only reason I tunein to watch the Superbowl is the office pool. Common Broncos!

#43 Posted by clyde46 (42000 posts) -

Football isn't boring fuck off you euros.

Edit: too harsh never mind.

Anyway this years Super Bowl matchup is boring. Almost as bad as Steelers vs Cardinals.

What? That game was fucking epic. I stayed up late to watch that. It was snowing outside but it felt even colder in my house as the fire had gone out. Best 30 last 30mins of a football game.

Well, yeah, dunno. It seems like 80 percent of pause/tactical brainstorming or whatever they're doing and 20 percent of real game. In football (soccer) you at least get two halves of 45 minutes of dynamic play. Sure, some matches can be boring as fuck, but those overpaid blokes at least run for 90 minutes.

#45 Posted by navyguy21 (12536 posts) -

lol, almost makes me want an Xbox One.

Awesome ad btw.

If it werent for the rushed hardware problems at launch, i wouldve bought the Xbox One over the PS4.

I havent bought either yet so they still have time to sway me...

Eurpeon football is made up of lots of flash but no substance.

Seattle... yikes.

The halftime shows going to be terrible. I had high hopes once i heard RHCP are doing it, but there just some BS back for Bruno Mars..

I may not agree with you Europeans about your views of "handegg" , but i will say your music is so much better.

America is destroying the music industry. Its just awful over here you have no idea.
