So... I just saw the "Perfect Day" Ps4 commercial playing on the 360 dashboard.

And yet, with everyone X-one sold, Sony makes more money due to the blu-ray drive. The cycle of business is a strange one.


Will they?
Microsoft is probably using a FLLA with a multiple business categorie, which will cost them $30,000 for 5 years.
Let's say that they use ROM3.0 FLLA, which will cost them $60,000 for 5 years instead.
The fee for ROM2.0 and ROM3.0 FLLA Commercial Audiovisual Content is another $4,000.
So it's $64,000 split on 5 years, which is...
$12,800 per year that Microsoft have to pay the Blu-ray Disc Association.
Now I don't know how they split the licensing money inside the Blu-ray Disc Association, I do however know that it got 18 Board Members and 58 Contributors, so it's pretty clear that Sony will only get a small number of that money.
And since Sony is one of the Board Members, they have to pay a annual fee of $50,000.
Which means that Sony will not "earn" Microsoft's money, that number is red.

...besides, Sony is still one of the Founding Members of DVD Forum, which means that they indirectly get a few dollar (or cents?) for each Xbox 360 sold.

Microsoft are genius they let Sony pay them huge amounts of $ for a few meaningless ads.


I somehow doubt you'd be calling ads meaningless if the roles were reversed here. Advertising is always far from meaningless.

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Xbox Fanboys don't like that particular bubble burst! Let them keep thinking that Microsoft is the one making money off of Sony ads for the PS4 running on the Xbox 360!

:D

And with every BluRay disc, I believe Microsoft makes cash from their VC-1

I haven't been using my X360 much this year, but every time I do, I see a bunch of ads for X1, or their games. So I find this hard to believe.

This is a horrible misuse (in every sense) of a great song. I now hate Sony.

I'm sure they don't control entirely what ads are playing on the dashboard, but that's kind of weird.


That awesome ad will only make people jump the Xbone ship.

They are saying that all Sony users are heroin addicts.

Based on that commercial, I would say it's more than just Sony's users. I can't believe how rustled my jimmies are over this, I'm not even kidding. I guess I should consider myself lucky this is the first time a song I love is being s*** on to sell something, but it really pisses me off.
