Chart Shows PlayStation Dominated U.S. Searches For Last Two Generations

Who won in the category of search volume for video games over the last two generations? Sony. The PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 seemed to be the talk of the town throughout most years before the consoles’ release, during the consoles’ release and after the consoles’ release.

Internet Frontier put together a comprehensive series of infographics showcasing that despite the Wii winning seventh gen gaming, it was Sony who won the search engine game.

That they did. Despite microsoft's best efforts to google bomb their console so it gets more hits. Congrats won montana and nothing else.

It's all about winning the states ;)

If this were an election then...Sony won by a landslide. microsoft won a total of 3 electoral votes from montana

You can hardly compare a search to a election.

Trump is a loser. A fat, ugly, pathetic old fool.

G20WLY38d ago

He looks like he's winning, though 🤔

Also judging by your comment though it's clearly opposite day

Not surprised but hopefully it will be more competitive next gen and Microsoft will have more time to develop more first party studios

I only own PlayStations, but this is far from scientific. Many would have searched "Xbox" and "Nintendo", likely more than the fully spelled out "Xbox 360" or "Xbox One", and with the amount of casual fad chasers Wii had, they'd know "Nintendo" more than the specific console name. Sony has the smartest branding, which is why I was saying they'd be very stupid if they actually went with "Orbis" for PS4. They just need to stick with sequential numbers and they'll forever have excellent brand recognition.

lol what do you expect ?, Nintendo is a joke and the MS xbone not even worth talking on why is failing so much.

Last I remember halo and gears forza have no rival from PlayStation. Uncharted is more compared to tomb raider. Not saying ps has bad games in fact they have great games but for you to just beat your chest and flex your e peen at us makes you look silly.

2nd had some good games this gen Sony had more. I have both systems so I don't care.

S2Killinit39d ago (Edited 39d ago )

Ummm, ok with that logic, halo is more compared to Destiny. Oh and halo has been milked dry. And Forza is a copy of a certain other game. Your statement makes no sense.

"but for you to just beat your chest and flex your e peen at us makes you look silly"

You did the same thing in your first sentence.

trooper_39d ago

Uncharted is nothing like Tomb Raider. Halo and Forza alone can't make the XB1 relevant either.


TheHan39d ago (Edited 39d ago )


For one Halo came out first. So you can say that destiny is like Halo not the other way around same goes for half of sonys games.

Nintendo is a joke? Yeah right. That why their console has no games and no one are buying their product. That why they have been very obscured these past few years with no presentations of their own.

I truely believe your words.

ILostMyMind38d ago (Edited 38d ago )

MS, in console space, is a joke. Nintendo isn't. To be exact, the gaming market goes very well with Sony dominating the consoles and Nintendo dominating the handhelds. MS is good at making Windows (one time yes, one time no) and advertisements.
