Kaz Hirai Playstation Success Sony 1.original

We stayed up until 1:30am last night to watch Sony's Jim Ryan reveal the official PlayStation 5 logo so that you didn't have to, but that didn't stop millions of people across the globe from sharing the news across social media. In fact, Sony's simple Instagram post has more than double the likes of Microsoft's Xbox Series X announcement and the Japanese giant didn't even have a console to show.

At the time of writing, the official PlayStation Instagram account can boast of a whopping 4.2 million likes on its PS5 logo reveal while the Xbox Series X announcement trailer debuted at The Game Awards 2019 is sitting at 1.8 million views. A separate post made on the same day detailing the name and the box itself currently has just under 990,000 likes a month later. It is worth noting that PlayStation also has more than double the amount of followers Xbox does on Instagram, but this is clearly proof that the Sony fanbase is eager for further information.

If PlayStation can demand this much attention when it simply reveals a logo, imagine the scenes when it chooses to unveil the console itself. That PlayStation Meeting can't come soon enough, can it? Were you one of those liking Sony's post last night? Like every comment below.
