Nintendo direct did very well on Youtube but was absolutely dwarfed by Playstation on Twitch.



Wait are you still trying to push this useless metric?

Is VGChartz still pushing useless sales when we now have Twitch streams ? 



Seems like PS really have a very strong presence on social media.

Playstation has the strongest social media brand in gaming.

Number 1 youtube channel

Number 1 instagram account

Number 1 twitter account

Number 1 Twitch account

So big that it broke both youtube and twitch records.

Total Nintendo September direct(US, JP, and EU) = 8.43 million views



And thats an ordinary direct vs a showcase.
Compare it to Sony's state of play and Im sure it would absolutely crush those.

Sony has a strong social media presence but Im curious do these numbers track all the Japanese streams as well where Switch is handily nr 1?

Something like Twitch would limely have a larger western presence.

Also, while it is interesting to see how they compare on social media I dont think anyone would look at thesr and go "Yup, PS5 will outsell Switch".



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

Playstation has more regional youtube channels than Nintendo. Adding it all up will just make it even more one sided to Playstation.

Also State of Play are tiny updates. Showcases are the big E3 like conference replacements.

PS5 thus far is the fastest selling console of all time.

If you look at the game trailer views from the recent PS Showcase they wipe the floor with Nintendo's E3 direct, despite only being 3 weeks old.
