PS5 Logo Sony PlayStation Instagram

How insane is this? PlayStation now holds the record for the most popular Instagram image ever posted by a video games company. The official PlayStation 5 logo -- which was posted just a day ago at the time of writing -- has amassed a ridiculous 5 million likes on the popular media-sharing platform, along with a whopping 136,000 comments. Previously, the most popular image was Fortnite's announcement of its Avengers crossover, which managed just 2.7 million likes. Mental.

It should be noted that we're only talking static images here. As VGC points out, videos tend to be more popular across social media. But of course, Sony's yet to post a PS5 video, so... The company's probably rubbing its hands together right now.

We've reported on this before, but it's worth reiterating that the Xbox Series X reveal Instagram post capped at 1.8 million likes, for the sake of comparison. It's safe to say that the world is hyped for the PS5.
