The lights are on
The NFL on Xbox One app added a new feature yesterday that will allow users to predict performance in upcoming playoff games and even the Super Bowl.
If you launch the app, you should see a Playoff Face Off category on the bottom of the screen. All you do is answer questions about the outcomes and performance of players for upcoming games. Answers will be tallied and changed out every week, and accurate predictions will net achievements and chances to win prizes, like tickets to Super Bowl XLVIII and Super Bowl XLIX.

Our TakeI think it's this sort of crossover between television media and video games that will set the Xbox One apart from the PlayStation 4 and Wii U. The question remains, however, as to whether this will translate to wide popularity or sales for Microsoft.
