The PlayStation brand has seen a significant growth in popularity in recent years, due mainly to investments in technology and the introduction of the PS4 and PlayStation VR hardware. It comes as no surprise then, that the brand was a leader on Twitter in May 2016, having the highest number of followers among gaming brands. In fact, in 2016 the PlayStation brand created a lot of online buzz, and ranked first among top gaming platforms by number of online article mentions. Additionally, U.S. gamers surveyed in March 2016, identified Sony’s platform as their favorite gaming hardware. In line with this trend, 2018 saw an increase in developers working on PlayStation projects, compared with the previous year.
