The only make several billion in profits every year, so no they can likely afford to buy out Sony but they can't afford new commercials.


Xbox, and its video game brand, is but a portion of the whole of Microsoft. Thus, the video game branch of Microsoft cannot afford to "buy Sony." However, as the entire of MS is a billion dollar company, I would think they could at least make a few new commercials or at least accurately market the ones they have made. MS seems to be content to save a few bucks and dial-in their TV ad campaign. Comparatively, I've seen several Surface vs IPad ads since the holiday season.

Speaking of Sony, I have seen several PS4 commercials from them in the last few months. And everyone speaks 'American' too.
