Sony Playstation 4 wins Valentine's Day

Updated on February 15, 2015

So what did the big three do?

While Sony Playstation 4 was not my best pick for consoles overall this generation, it's important to note that there are things that they do well, much better than their competitors. As a business, it seems to be common that companies are looking for ways to capitalize on their audiences in the best fashion. This is ultimately what differentiates Sony from it's competitors. Sony is continually engaging with its customers and understands that behind the controllers are people. With each holiday, Sony is always doing something to cheer up it's fans.

Let's take a quick look together.

Sony understands that people want flash sales:

Why does this matter? Well, because no one else seems to be doing it. Sometimes Nintendo and Xbox will throw out sales on old stale content, then call it a flash sale, but c'mon. Customers don't want stale games, they want the good stuff. Sony delivered with excellent titles like Little Big Planet 3 and relevant movies that made us all want to get a little closer this Valentine's day. Great job, Sony!

Let's see how Nintendo did:

Nintendo comes in second, with a nice layout of Valentine's day images and displays. No sales in sight, but it is Nintendo after all (Ha ha!). It is really enjoyable to log into the Nintendo eshop on 3DS or Wii U each week, because there's always a change to the music or a new colorful background. Nintendo is clearly the most charming in their effort to win over fans. But in the end, all we really want are games. It would have been nice to see some family friendly games offered at a discount.

Now the most peculiar is Xbox One, with absolutely no regard for Valentine's day in sight:

You have to feel bad for all the Microsoft employees. No love. It's a sad day to say the least.

I thought maybe it would switch over or something, so I logged into my Xbox One multiple times. Same old dashboard. Same old prices. Who knows, maybe this was a popular vacation for most of the staff? However, some popular opinion suggests that Microsoft is really run by some all-intelligent computer. Unfortunately this computer has not yet learned to love, so it didn't give into the demands of a futile human like emotion. Maybe in 2.0 this will change.

So enough about me, how about you?

Who do you think did the best Valentine's day?
