The Dark Side or the Light? Microsoft Promo

So Microsoft came out with this clever and funny promo for their controllers and obviously for Battlefront. Even though, nothing says Battlefront is also on the Xbox One.

Anyways, so I've been reading a lot of hate towards this and people saying it's so childish that MS is doing this. Pretty much the same level as when they released the Destiny cologne promo, which also was clever and funny.

Like I said, there's a group that are actually upset about this.

Since the majority of members here are pro-Sony, wanted to know what you guys really think.

To me, I see absolutely nothing wrong with this.

The humor seems to target at themselves, but in theory, it's trying to attract Battlefront players over to their side. Hence the theme. Look at how the colors of everything is designed... The white controllers looks like something out of Star Wars.

On the other hand, people might think this is a jab at two things: Black/White folks, or PlayStation players.

Honestly, I don't see the problem. But I do see that it can rub people the wrong way. Kind of like the old PSVita ads targeting ethnic group(s).

This is no different than what they did when MS released the Destiny cologne ad. It was clever and funny.

Yes, that's the point of the ad, to promote Battlefront in their own way without the mention of the Battlefront title.

I still dont see how this could rub the people the wrong way.

Is MS not allowed to promote the game without mentioning the title because Sony has exclusive marketing right? They're just suppose to just sit there and do nothing?

Nah, I rather see them do something like this rather than them sitting on their ass.
