Brand power: Sony v MS v Nintendo v Playstation v XBOX

Forums - Sales Discussion - Brand power: Sony v MS v Nintendo v Playstation v XBOX

"Microsoft" and "Sony" regularly beat "Nintendo" in brand power but "XBOX" and "Playstation" don't.

eg https://www.interbrand.com/best-brands/best-global-brands/2018/ranking/

Does anyone have any recent lists where 'Playstation' and 'XBOX' are higher than Nintendo?

In the UK, PlayStation is apparently the third most 'relevant' brand...

In any case, I don't think these are worth putting too much thought into.



I looked it up and neither Playstation nor Xbox are even on that site, meaning they are probably just included under their parent company ...

Either way Apple is #1, so it's not something I would personally care about, considering I don't care for Apple at all.



MS (by a mile) > Sony > Nintendo > PS > Xbox is my guess, worldwide. It may be different in some places though.



Playstation and Nintendo are both by an absolute country fucking mile ahead of xbox. No comparison.

MS is top here, but xbox... man, xbox is very far behind Nintendo and Playstation.

It's like:
MS >> sony > Ninty = PS >>> Xbox.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

I think Playstation is ahead of Sony in some parts of the world.

Sony and Microsoft are known for a lot more than gaming. It's not surprising that they would have stronger brands.

On the gaming side, since Nintendo is a pure gaming company, then they are going to have a stronger brand than Playstation or XBox.

Pretty much.

Not surprising that Microsoft and Sony our rank Nintendo, but also not surprised Nintendo ranks higher than Xbox or PlayStation.



People said it. Xbox and Playstation are evidently less in power than their parent compagny when compared to Nintendo. Although, the Playstation does seem more popular for a reason in Europe, just as Nintendo dominates Japan.
