Wii Named Top Gaming Console Brand

April 28, 2010 -

Research agency Millward Brown has released its annual list of the Top 100 Most Valuable Global Brands (PDF).
 
The top five overall in the BrandZ Top 100 are probably not too surprising; Google tops the list, followed by IBM, Apple, Microsoft and Coca-Cola. Nintendo checks in at number 32 and Intel is at number 48, while Sony is number 94.

The report also broke out a section specifically for videogames. It was noted that the category was down 3.0 percent in year-over-year results, a shift blamed on the economic downturn. In a bid to spur fan-boy debates perhaps, specific game machines were also ranked by brand value, with the Wii taking the top spot, followed by the Nintendo DS, the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PSP and PlayStation 2.

Over the next 12-18 months  Millward Brown sees an increasing shift in the game industry to online distribution and cloud technology enabling “highly complex” games. Additionally, “The growing popularity of micro-transactional social games will draw major game makers into a segment mostly occupied by independents.”

well done Nintendo,

Just be aware that it is not the hardware that sells the console, but the software too, and from the way I am seeing games like Super Mario Galaxy 2, Metroid: Other M, Sin and Punishment 2 and also hearing about the new Legend of Zelda game for the Wii, you will need to focus on those games before you can celebrate.

So for the first time in history, the top gaming machine is also the one with the lamest games. That's only possible if the calculation that makes it number one is bogus.

Congrats for being the top gaming brand Nintendo.

Re: Wii Named Top Gaming Console Brand

I'm not really sure where you're going with this, considering that the Wii is light-years ahead of the PS3 or the 360 when it comes to hardware quality.

You must be using a crappy third party device. Mine works fine no matter what.

Re: Wii Named Top Gaming Console Brand

Exactly.  I play mine on a 73" tv without issues whatsoever.  Most people wouldn't have such a harsh angle between the Wii Remote and the Sensor Bar, so I'm wondering what Zip's doing wrong.

Andrew EisenFeel free to leave us suggestions on Facebook or Twitter too. We're going to be busy but we'll try our best to keep an eye on 'em.08/31/2015 - 8:59pm
Andrew EisenIt's an interesting idea though. If we do anything, we probably won't know until after the site goes offline so keep an eye on GP social media for announcements.08/31/2015 - 8:59pm
Andrew EisenYeah, we could use my Twitch chat box too. There's always IRC but we don't currently have a GamePolitics channel.08/31/2015 - 8:57pm
Goth_SkunkThough I think the limit is 9 at a time in the hangout, so anyone who can't get in would be stuck out in the 'on air' portion.08/31/2015 - 8:57pm
Andrew EisenFor the show, I'd like the chat open to anyone who wants to watch.08/31/2015 - 8:55pm
PHX CorpI could Set Up a Temporary chatroom on My twitch.TV page while GP is busy updating the site(since I'll be Fighting Megaman Legacy Collection on Xbox one)08/31/2015 - 8:54pm
Goth_SkunkI don't see a problem with inviting viewers. It's not like I'm advocating this to be an open forum, just something specific to GP members.08/31/2015 - 8:53pm
