Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony in Top 100 Brands of the World

Softpedia: The best-placed video gaming company is Microsoft, which sits in fifth spot overall, but a lot of its brand recognition is linked to the Windows and Office products that it delivers to the PC, although the Xbox 360 and associated game publishing business have also had a good year and contributed to the Microsoft brand.

5. Microsoft
79. Nintendo
85. SONY
This will not go down well. Prepare to hear just how awful Microsoft is and why it does not deserve to be on the list. They are coming.
On topic, well done to Ninty, for a gaming only company, that is very impressive.

5% - 10% of Ms profit is from Microsoft entertainment division the rest is pretty much from Windows

@shikamaroooo: Actually, last year their entertainment division was less than 5% of their overall profit. Yeah, that's still about $400m, but they're losing a ton of money on advertising and their smartphones (which is rolled under the same group). But, Microsoft is still playing the long game on their new devices (WP7 and Kinect) and are hoping to see that number increase this year.

Microsoft's Windows is pretty much in every single computer out there, which is why it's up so high. Don't even need to bring in their other products.

Although it is pretty sad to see Sony that low as they sell computers, TV's, MP3 players, video game consoles/games, BluRay Players, Music, Movies, etc.

Very good for Nintendo tho as they are purely a video game company. Pretty much the only impressive one out of the big 3, as the reasons for Microsoft and Sony being there probably relies mostly on their other products.

Thanks for setting the tone for the trolls to come Max. Good thing we got the first troll post out of the way.
On topic: Yippie.

Max_Dissatisfaction2748d ago

You're just mad that I called you out before you got the chance to troll silly gamer. You know you're one of the people that were about to jump down Microsoft's throat but my post kinda made you think twice

Silly gameAr2748d ago (Edited 2748d ago )

lol When have you seen me in any MS or XBox related news articles trolling? I couldn't care less dude. What MS is coming with recently, I'm not really interested in. There's no need for me to comment. I leave that to people like you who think MS can do no wrong.

You made a troll post and got called out on it. That's all.

List like these are pretty meaningless imo.

I'm surprised that sony and nintendo are so far down the list

jessupj2748d ago

Well I don't know about anyone else, but for me Sony is number 1 because they give me so many quality games. They care about profit naturally, but they obviously have a passion for gaming as well.

I'm always hearing from 1st party developers how supportive Sony are and how they encourage creativity and take risks.

Max_Dissatisfaction2748d ago

You know there's an opening at my firm for a spokesperson.

TotalPS3Fanboy2748d ago (Edited 2748d ago )

is trying to say is that you can't possibly have any high opinion of Sony and the only reason you have a high opinion of Sony is because Sony hired you to post.

People like Max_Dissatisfaction are a bit paranoiac like that.

Troll-without-Bridge2748d ago

Im guessing this list is american? In europe Sony is way more popular than microsoft, nobody likes windows.

Squatch832748d ago

Its a list of most valuable companies, based on share prices among other things.

Sugreev20012748d ago

It's a conspiracy,I tell you !
