PS4 Soundly Beats Xbox One and Wii U in Google Popularity; Wii U Overtook Xbox One on Youtube at E3

The first half of the 2014 is now behind our backs, and all the big three (Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo) have published their financial and sales reports with a rather wide range of results, but what about one of the most basic indexes of popularity on the internet? PS4 Beats the Xbox One and the Wii U rather soundly on google and youtube searches, but there are some surprises.

Are we seriously doing search comparisons now? smh

Gee, can't wait for the yahoo and bing analysis. Looking forward to a months worth of news stories. :(

Yep this goes along with company news that informed how many bullets were fired in games, distances that players ran or how many zombies were killed.

You do know that this isnt new right? This started last gen with the PS3/360, where MS fanboys would use this against Sony fanboys. So unfortunately for the MS fanboys, what goes around comes around.

MRMagoo123906d ago (Edited 906d ago )

we have been doing them for years, go back to the ps3/360 gen and check the articles then too. Are you new?

I am not saying they are worth reading or not because some ppl like them some ppl dont but they have been on this site for a loooooong time.

MrMagoo - These articles were ridiculous back last gen as well. Along with those Sony is Doomed articles...utterly ridiculous.

These articles get the arcade Rambos beating their chest.

There are two things on this site I detest.. misinformation and ignorance...

reports on sales or other legitimate statistics are viable news pieces even when they tell what we don't want to hear. And when we put them all together they can help us understand the market.

I invested money in a console. Popularity and sales mean I can expect a much better chance of getting solid titles from all devs. So yes I want the ps4 to do well. If they soundly beat the competition, then even exclusive titles are likely to find their way to the ps4....

So yeah I think these articles are interesting and should be published especially when they support the console I invested in... It isn't a difficult concept to grasp.. it has nothing to do with being a fanboy...

Anything that asserts any kind of dominence over xbox (even stupid ones like these) gets an article why is that surprising?

Microsoft is going to have a very hard time recovering the Xbox One. All the work they had with the X360 went down the drain in the first few months after announcing the X1. Unless Microsoft does something drastic, I don't think the X1 will have 1/2 the sales of the PS4 at the end of this console generation.

If Microsoft were smart they would finance 100% of a few games that a lot of people are interested, like Shenmue 3, Lost Odyssey 2, Beyond Good and Evil 2, etc... the way Nintendo did with Bayonetta 2. Maybe that way they could interest other people to purchase the X1 beside the die hard xbox fans that only like Halo, Forza and Gears.

What you say makes sense for the gaming division, but Microsoft investors and shareholders wouldn't have it. They will sell the division off if the expenditures keep outpacing profits, as has been the case for awhile now. The gaming division is a small piece of the Microsoft pie, and what is worrying for xbox only gamers is the head of the company and the shareholders seem to be stepping away from the division more and more each operating quarter. I really don't want to see Microsoft sell xbox, I would like to see them invest more in it and offer better services and hardware, but that is not the way it seems to be trending inside that company, with the scuttling of xbox entertainment and their vision of what entertainment on the xbox one would be also recently axed. I own a ps4, 360, and ps3 at the moment, and will probably buy a wii u and maybe an xbone in 2015, but if I'm being honest the wii u has more in store for 2015 that I'm excited about right now than what I've seen from Microsoft. That has to change if they are going to get back in this fight, because right now Sony are handing it to them worldwide. And though I own a ps4 and am happy Sony is doing well with it, gaming as a whole would suffer if Microsoft doesn't succeed also.

This is a news website, it reports on everything related to gaming...even which brands are searched for the most on Google.

It must hurt for some seeing Xbone lose across the board.

Pogmathoin906d ago

Clearly this is great news. I can hold my head high..

Not surprising...reflective of sales as well.

Sayai jin906d ago

Articles like these are getting old and ridiculous. Scratch that; they have always been ridiculous.

Multiplatguy906d ago

I wouldn't expect them to go away any time soon. Just going by the comment section of these articles, this is the type of "news" that the typical user of this site likes.

Just look at all the disagrees on Bizzare for pointing out it's a bit silly that we have degraded to making news out of which is the more popular google search..

Sayai jin906d ago

Indeed. I understand what you are saying.

Online gaming news is ruled by arcade Rambos (fanboys) and articles like these throws gasoline on a fire.

Steptoe906d ago

Oooh! I'm so popular! Someone give me a cherry! News like this make Sony lazy.
