Forums - Sales Discussion - PS5 Reveal breaks nearly all social media records (Twitch, Youtube streaming, Youtube, Instagram, Twitter)

Social media has become a massive indicator of real world engagement and sales, so much so that nearly every major company runs exclusive social media advertising campaigns. I believe Facebooks biggest revenue source is companies using it as an advertising platform.

Youtube stream with largest concurrent viewers:

When I watched I saw 2M on the ENG stream watching live on youtube. Correct me if I am wrong but I've never seen such numbers on youtube streams. 4.5M concurrent across all streams.

Twitch event with largest concurrent viewers:

Largest single stream concurrent viewership on Twitch was previously held by League of Legends tournament with 1.09M. When I checked mid stream, PS channel on Twitch had 1M.

Again from the image above, 2.7M concurrent across all streams.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

I mean its good and all, however Sony did strangle the audience by keeping them waiting for so long too.

Well but it did end well lol. Probably they already had their plan to show on  April  before, but covid 19 changed everything.

Well ya, they are the market leader. I watched it myself too. On top of covid and largely being silent for the year.

Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 


Isn't this normal, though? The more gaming grows and the more social media grows, announcements like that will become bigger and bigger.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

I'd imagine this is more an indication of how well liked their current device is rather than Ps5. If PS4 tanked then 5 wouldn't get this much attention, but because it had amazing sales everyone was interested in what was coming next. I'd more so be interested in seeing what percentage of those viewers was pleased with what they saw, as I've seen a lot of people commenting on how few original games it will have at launch as well as the design of the console (I've also seen a lot that like the design). Just curious!

Some of the best selling movies, for example, are very unpopular but sold so many tickets because the previous one was so good.

I've known of rumored cases where the stream cured some people's cancer.
