Locked: Why the PlayStation brand name is the strongest brand name in video games

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Why the PlayStation brand name is the strongest brand name in video games

Nintendo have the strongest "brand" name no contest whatsoever.

Hell I would say that the name "Mario" is even bigger then what playstation is.



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

I think Playstation is a stronger brand name than Nintendo or Wii.

 

I agree... it carries much more weight around people. Especially the public.

They may be current market leader, but I stand by my statement....period.



                                                                                                                                            

I mean, I thought I wouldn't have to state the obvious, but to clarify, when I talk to gamers on the street, online etc.... Playstation is a more commonly used name. This is all opinionated in the first place. Why people choose to get up tight about that is beyond me. Personal tastes/likes =/= any facts. It's my opinion Playstation is the bigger name based on observation. All the while, Nintendo is going to end up changing it back by the time this gen is done.

As I said, just my observation....

See.. that's your problem.. you have to think bigger...

Playstation is a stronger brand name with male, 16-32 years old, and gamers...
Nintendo is way bigger with Male, Female 4-60 years old, and everyone....

Didn't bother reading beyond "future proof".

You really need to drop that marketing BS.



I'd have to disagree with the point about original Xbox being considered a success as it lost a lot of money for Microsoft. I don't consider it a success by any means. The PS3 may be somewhat more successful, but I'd say it's not doing much good for the PS brand, if not hurting it.

For the time being I'd say it's the strongest brand, but give it two years and the strongest brand will be Wii. A lot of it has to do with what kids grow up with, and a lot of kids have Wiis.



"Now, a fun game should always be easy to understand - you should be able to take one look at it and know what you have to do straight away. It should be so well constructed that you can tell at a glance what your goal is and, even if you don’t succeed, you’ll blame yourself rather than the game. Moreover, the people standing around watching the game have also got to be able to enjoy it." - Shiggy

My mom calls my DS a playstation...

 

 my old man calls my PSP a Nintendo. So I guess it balances again.



 

 

Nintendo has the biggest brand with console and handheld gaming and mario is the face of gaming

..........seriously this isnt up for discussion.........

 

EDIT: Also sony traded their brand power so that blu-ray could jumpstart.



N64 is the ONLY console of the fifth generation!!!

Well it used to be last generation without a doubt. Not anymore, Playstation brand has suffered a lot because of the decisions made by Sony during the launch of this gen. Now especially in the Western World Nintendo and Xbox brands are bigger.
