Leading social-media-services provider Vitrue has compiled a list of the top 50 social brands of 2008.
I hate these contentious bs pieces. Everyone knows that xbox is way better. hehe
Dangerous talk there. You might lose a bubble from an angry moderator if you keep that up. ;) On topic: In the end, sales is what matters, right?
@1.1 He as right to his opinion... still... About the article, in which sites does the study applies its list? Majority US sites? Or International sites? I bet that if this was made in Japanese web sites it would be a diferent order. But do I know?! o.O Im just pointing it out that these studies are a reflection of the demographic its based off. It doesnt reflect a worldwide situation. Where´s NOKIA? O_O Where´s COCA COLA?
Sony is at 9 Microsoft is at 11 and Nintendo is at 13... Funny how that isn't pointed out Also, the Wii didn't make the list but XBOX and PlayStation did Yes the Xbox is leading at 5....congrats...but to make a direct comparison between the company Nintendo versus Playstation instead of Sony, screams fanboy
yeah it's just stupid, the wii isn't even selling millions! oh wait, it is? O_o
yeah its pretty silly that the wii isnt even on there
Here's some food for thought: Why the hell is CNN 2nd? And why is Disney 4th? I get this feeling that the people in question for this are; yuppies, angsty teens / preteens and suburban moms.
Im quite surprised.I knew the xbox brand has become bigger since the 360 but I didnt think one second it was a head of the Playstation. Congrats to MSFT who (hate them or love them) have done a tremendous job with the 360. Last gen in EU (maybe except for the UK) , the xbox was even less popular than the gamecube.Playstation was the synonym of console.Every console was a "playstation" no matter the brand on the console lol. I think Sonys bad marketing strategy this gen has something to do with it too. @TEMPEIST above : well , here in France more people watch CNN (tough its an english channel) than the official international french news channel (France 24), just to give you an idea.....And Disney is sacred overhere whether youre 18 or 50 years old so Im not surprised to se them so high in this chart.
Neilsen has ps2 most played in the U.S. Japan or EU doesn't favor MS. If anything, this was compiled by asking halo tweens. Xbox is a popular brand but not even on the playstation/nintendo level worldwide. Sell 100 million consoles for starters. Nintendo and Sony are close to half a billion sold. :)
Not surprising, the PS3 really is playing catch-up. I agree the 360 is better.
Fox News has higher ratings than all cable news combined. There is something wrong with that list.
No way, Coke beats Pepsi!
You obviously know nothing.
Water beats both! Mwahaha!
prune juice beats water /jk
Moxie Beats everything!
So on sheer volume of mentions on the internet, the Xbox is winning. It's an odd list for sure.
I wonder if they take into account that PlayStation is quite (most?) often abbreviated PS. I would hope they include all possible terms when compiling this type of list.
As long as i enjoy playing my 360, which wont be a problem in 2009.
If you're playing 2008 games...
Really? So I can't play FEAR 2, Street Fighter 4, Star Ocean, Halo Wars, HAWX, Resident Evil 5, Red Faction, Halo 3: ODST, Mafia 2, Dragon Age: Origins, or Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 on the 360? Because I was fairly sure I could. Oh right, I forgot, certain people only care about exclusives and like to pretend multiplatform games don't exist. I hate to just sit here and list games, but if you're going to make smart-ass remarks with no basis in reality, I have little choice.
Yep yep. Bubble up Silellak.
Here is an IGN list of games so far listed for the 360 - i guess LeonSKennedy4Life is a bit confused .... or just trying to spread more ignorant FUD...and the list actually goes past 09 February 4, 2009 3 on 3 NHL Arcade Electronic Arts Sports February 10, 2009 F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin Warner Bros.

iPhone is not more popular or recognisable than Mc Donalds.
Agreed and its even worldwide
in america? no sh*t worlwide? no way
So the dump on Sony continues ...
No Wii? But nintendo, LoL, Sony above microsoft? no Google? LMAOOOO What a joke!!!!!!!!
"measures the "conversation volume" around 2000 brands on various social networking and blogging sites." So - its really scientific measure then! You got to love the internet and its BS stories about nothing!!! :) Priceless nonsense...
When most people think of video gaming this generation, they think of the XBOX 360 or the Wii. The PS3 really isn't in the spotlight like it was last generation, that's for sure. Sad but true.
I dont really have a problem with the way things are going for all the consoles. Frankly its a good year for the PS3 and 360 as both are gearing towards outdoing each other which can never be a bad thing. Trust me all this is gonna be old news in the end and will long be forgotten when the new consoles start cropping up (along with new fanboys), just enjoy the consoles you have for as long as they are out there.
WorldWide PS3 beats XBox 360 that's the reality of it when it comes to brand recognition.
The fact that starbucks is even in the top 10 is a low blow to american culture and media.
Sony suckssssssssssssssssssssssssss s........and the moderators are mad, but don't take my last buble. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahah. .........
When people (especially non-gamer) talk about the game, first thing comes out is playstation (of course they don't care about it is 1,2,or 3). Even more odd thing is...the most played gaming console in US 2008 was PS2. How can this be happened?
because its cheap.
ps3 is crap the mods on this site are dic,,,,,k heads sony droids
Thats not a suprise really. Most social talks nowdays are of : XB2+RROD
can't you come up with something else, i think that "line" is a little wore out.
Look Fanboys... Not everyone in the world is beholden to Sony and the Playstation brand (and this is coming from a future PS3 owner)... Sony does not rule the world, NEWSFLASH There are other brands in the world much much bigger than Sony and Microsoft and Nintendo... Once we reralize this and be GAMERS instead of FANBOYS the industry would continue to flourish
you have to appreciate how far the Xbox brand has come. The video game console industry has grown but the Xbox 360 has really carved a place for itself given the failures of the original Xbox to really resonate with consumers.
