Sony beats out Samsung Mobile by 5 million views.

Sony’s PlayStation 4 sizzle trailer was the most watched advertisement on YouTube during the month of February, according to the latest YouTube Ads Leaderboard.

The video, which highlights the PlayStation 4 controller and camera, and games like Knack, The Witness, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Watch Dogs, and inFAMOUS: Second Son, garnered nearly 26.3 million views last month.

Second to Sony was Samsung Mobile’s “The Next Big Thing” Super Bowl advertisement, which garnered over 21 million views.

Thanks, The Silent Chief.

    I’m part of the problem

  • GaySkull

    Of Course! Yes.

    Also the PS4 Meeting was viewed 8.1 million times on Ustream

    Sony got a great Ad company partner this time. I hope Sony focus on marketing and give it good budget. PS3 marketing was low budget compared to Microsoft.

      Merman…storm castle Gayskull and help him to see that less wasted funds on superfluous ads on PS3 equals the amazing library it has and all those wasted funds on flashy dudebro ads from MS has a direct correlation with their pathetic excuse for a games library!

      Cast your spell evil Lynn quick, while GaySkull is distracted by Merman’s truth!

  • PrinceHeir

  • MrKappa

    Wait… is this an ad? If so that would explain why I have never seen it because AdBlock is hardly ever off for me.

      By ad, it’s talking about a video that’s specifically an advertisement, as opposed to user-created videos, etc.
