The console crushed all it’s competitors in terms of digital attention

GamesBeat has partnered with attention analytics company iSpot.tv, which measures TV advertising in real-time, to bring you a monthly report on how gaming brands are spending their TV ad dollars and which commercials are generating the most digital response (iSpot measures actions across Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and all major search engines).
Every year analytics firms look into how the top-brands push their marketing out to consumers via normal channels like TV Ads and Youtube, etc. and this year Microsoft with their Xbox One brand was the #1, spending the most, and pushing the most, compare to the others like Sony with its PlayStation ads, and Nintendo as usual was on the bottom of the list of the top five.
