Do you have kids?
My young cousins, who had no gaming consoles and were not video game players in general, were able to perfectly articulate how and why they wanted the 3DS to their technologically oblivious parents. /shrug
Seems fairly common, to be honest. All they're likely to know anything about are the games, at the end of the day. Which helps even the playing field. But Sony's announcements are generally far more relevant to young players than the 360's were. KH3, Pikmin, FF (depending on their age), that weird one with the floating shapes that turn into people (or whatever that was).
And if they're moms that worry about "violence" in video games, the XBone certainly isn't going to help sell itself. With KH alone, Sony has a lot of ability to flood children's channels (like, IDK, Disney) with ads. Commence begging.
The only thing I'm seeing in the XBone lineup that's "kid-friendly" is their music game. Sports games, too, but those are harder to advertise to that target demographic.
