User warned: Platform warring

It’ll be some time before we know who wins the console war in the next generation. But if we want to measure who is ahead just going by social media engagement, Sony has taken the lead, and by quite a margin.
On Social Media, PS5 is Garnering Way More Engagement Than the Next Xbox
If you want to know just how far ahead of Microsoft Sony is right now, consider what VGC reported. On Instagram, “Less than 48 hours after it was posted, the PS5 logo image has amassed almost five million likes and 136,000 comments, easily surpassing the second-placed image post, Fortnite’s Avengers Endgame crossover announcement from April 2019 (2.7 million likes).”

Two things that don’t exist yet “fighting it out” on social media becoming a news article is SOMETHING ELSE

Maybe it is me, but I don't think that is a battle that SONY want's to win at... it shouldn't be.

From the article:

Actually, we doubt that this spells doom for the Xbox brand in any way. If anything, all the attention the logo post got probably had more to do with the memes regarding the logo than the logo itself. When all the hype leading up to the logo resulted in nothing more than a change from “4” to “5” in the logo we all know so well, the amused reactions went viral.
What are we even supposed to discuss? Even this article is like "there is nothing that can be drawn from this."

They want to start a war, get the clicks from all the fanboys.

Most of the posts I've seen regarding the PS5 have been tongue in cheek anyway. Yes, lots of people are excited but it's a meme now because of "oh new logo" etc. However, it is marketing, and it is working.

The title is silly, but, I’m sure Sony is happy with the metrics so far. Some of y’all acting like social media engagement is worthless.

Surprise! Not really. It's not like anyone expects Xbox to outsell PlayStation anyways.

We’re not going to host console wars based on social media engagement.
