We all have our preferences when it comes to the Xbox One or the PS4, but what does Twitter as a whole prefer? As it turns out, Sony is consistently more popular on Twitter.
Sony clearly has the upper hand when it comes to Twitter and that is great news for Sony. Looks like they have already won the hearts and minds of many gamers who use the social network. Fractl is a creative digital agency currently working with eBay to build a visual that helps show off which of the two consoles is the most popular based on Twitter. That’s where the info comes from.
The visual is a pair of boxing robots. One for the Xbox One and the other for the PS4. Each time someone mentions the Xbox One on Twitter, that robot scores a punch in the face of the PS4 boxing bot, and the reverse happens when someone mentions the PS4. So it is an all out brawl. The animation happens in real time, so you could watch the fight if you wanted. Each day the winner is displayed on the top of the animation, which is used to determine which console should be the prize in a giveaway. Pretty cool idea. So the PS4 gets far more mentions than the Xbox One. Not big news, but this is a fun way to illustrate the point.
