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.

TechnogeekYet, you're going to be hard-pressed to find anyone other than insecure 2EDGY4U teenagers seeing it as anything other than an extremely fun game.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekSplatoon's probably the best example at this point. Gameplay-wise, it's a team-based third-person shooter with a significant online component. It's rated E10.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekThe silliest thing about most of the Nintendo hatred is that they may be the last company that interprets "family-friendly" as meaning "fun for more than just the really young kids".05/25/2015 - 8:33pm
ZippyDSMleeWell it could be worse, like skyrim out of the box, a shame DAI dose not have that level of editing...05/25/2015 - 5:58pm
Zenpretty well without getting "nasty". Many people are disappointed in the decision and the about face on the status of the games development.05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
ZenEvery market has horrible people...but being like this towards all of them in a group is not a way to garner support and can make people more hostile towards you. Ironically his response was to someone that wanted to state a disagreement, but worded it05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
Goth_SkunkAs demonstrated by Ian's remarks, that 'market of possible fans' is apparently negligible.05/25/2015 - 4:18pm
Zeninformation while other versions had everything talked about openly.05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
ZenYeah, I've read through it and wanted to make sure I had it quoted correctly. I get there are issues, but this is horribly unprofessional and just burning a market of possible fans..many of which supported them and were waiting while getting little to no05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
Goth_SkunkOh wow. That's not even misquoted, he actually said that. Though for additional context in previous pages, he truly does not think highly of Nintendo console owners, and claims that in the industry, he's not alone.05/25/2015 - 4:12pm
ZenI also took a screenshot of the statement in case it is taken down (via my Twitter): https://twitter.com/zenspath/status/60293960536562483205/25/2015 - 4:05pm

ZenProject Cars basically canceled for Wii U, Slightlymad Studios Head, Ian Bell, states "Yup, and if you need to pass this on, we really dislike Nintendo users" on Forum to Wii U players waiting for the game and disappointed in the news.05/25/2015 - 4:03pm

Goth_Skunka bonified game dev.05/25/2015 - 3:45pm
Goth_SkunkGranted, most of that feedback is going to be vicious, but if a novice dev knows full well not to expect their hastily strewn together game as the next Grand Theft Auto, such curmudgeonly feedback shouldn't deter them from their ultimate goal of becoming05/25/2015 - 3:45pm
Goth_SkunkAdditionally, Steam is a platform whereby these novice devs can showcase what they were able to put together and see what kind of feedback they can get from the community.05/25/2015 - 3:44pm
Goth_SkunkI don't think it's wrong for a novice dev to want to recover any losses from people willing to pay money for what they have produced, either. After all, every game dev had to start somewhere.05/25/2015 - 3:41pm
Goth_SkunkI disagree. I think that for novice developers, this tactic still at a fundamental level teaching someone the ins and outs of video game development.05/25/2015 - 3:41pm
PHX Corp@MW There are things that developers are doing that drive me up the Wall as a consumer, reused Unity assets is no Exception to said rule05/25/2015 - 2:17pm
