SONY’S NEXT-GEN CONSOLE POST SEEMINGLY THE MOST LIKED OF ALL-TIME FROM A GAMES COMPANY
Sony’s PlayStation 5 logo looks to be the most popular Instagram image of all-time from a video games company, according to analytics gathered by VGC.

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).

The analysis includes what VGC understands to be the top 20 most popular video games and video games company accounts and does not include influencer profiles.

Just saw this in my twitter feed, what a weird achievement, lol.

Sony has mastered the art of creating hype for their console reveals.
2020 will be nuts.

I think this is as an important metric to discuss as any other we do here.

This has become the new most discussed topic on this forum. It’s beautiful. Just a logo and look how much it’s trending.

Oh..was it? Hmm I wonder why 🤔 doesn't seem like it's breaking the TOS to me.
As someone who posted a similar thread, apparently it is.

So let me say while I can, congratulations Sony on your beautiful PlayStation 5 logo reveal and Instagram record broken in less than two days!

Why are people so annoyed by the latest PlayStation threads? New stuff gets new threads, it happens all the time. Oh and the previous locked thread is embarrassing as well with all the thread whining... some users are the expected ones too.

I really want to post a totally dismissive, annoyed message here but I'll just say this...
This doesn't matter at all and isn't news worthy to create a bazillion threads on it. This is so bizarre lol.
It doesn't indicate how well PS5 will sell or perform on a hardware level.

Is it a coincidence that Playstations popularity is peaking now that they have enabled crossplay with Xbox? I feel like Phil Spencer deserves some credit for this.
