What you need to know​

  • The Xbox Series X is the most popular game console, according to a recent study.
  • The study used Twitter sentiment analysis to determine how people online feel about various consoles and games.
  • FIFA 22, Final Fantasy XIV, and Forza Horizon 5 are the three most popular games in the same study.

Microsoft's Xbox Series X is more popular than Sony's PlayStation 5, at least according to recent Twitter analysis (via MobileWins). Green Gaming looks at several aspects of gaming consoles each year, including power usage, player counts, platform compatibility, and the most popular games. It also uses Twitter sentiment analysis to determine how gamers feel about consoles and games.

Twitter sentiment analysis looks at tweets referencing a term in question and then assigns a positive or negative score.

This year's findings show that the Xbox Series X had more positive reviews from fans than the PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and several older consoles. The PlayStation 4 received the most negativity online, according to Green Gaming's analysis.

I cry about Xbox and hate PlayStation.
That doesnt say much, i mean Microsoft launched 2 of their big hitters this year Forza and Halo, so its not surprising more people would talk about the Xbox.

Btw is this about popularity or about positive and negative reviews? I just read through the article, it doesnt says much. Not alot of "data" to refer here.

"Halo Infinite drew quite a bit of criticism from fans, but as the title only came out in November 2021, results could be skewed. The game earned positive scores from reviewers, but the list of known bugs and launch issues for Halo Infinite is relatively long. These will likely be ironed out over time, which would lead to more positive feedback from players."

Ok come on, obvious biased here.

I couldn't give two shits about anything on Twitter ever.....but regardless,they have certainly turned things around from the absolute shit show that was the Xbox One.
I'm taking a break from gaming right now,might even wait for the mid gen upgrade consoles....but there is a fair chance I might even pick up an XSX before a PS5 right now....and that would have been crazy talk a while ago,lol.

Sony has nothing new right now, while Xbox had 2 big hitters in succession.

But I figure coming feb and march, PS5 will be hot. Its probably when I power it on again, anticipating GT7 but also Horizon 2.

No mention of the Series S which has gained a lot of popularity recently.
I'm pretty sure that ithe rank in Italy on Christmas holiday is going like this (from what I'm seeing)
1) Switch (not sold out)
2) Series consoles both constantly sold out (series s main driver) big shop receive few units per month of series s and x (1 - 10 the ratio x and s)
3) PS5 constantly sold out big shops receive around 15 consoles per month December the stores received 1/3 of the usual

So a system that creates platform statistics by evaluating current activity is measureing activity right when the biggest games of the year for said platform released.
Who`d have thought........

Ah I forgot. It´s the age of "if there is no news I´ll just create my own news"

It's not about activity, it's a sentiment analysis. It's quite different.

For the record, I think sentiment analysis is a very sketchy field and I wouldn't read too much into it, regardless of topic.
