PS4 trailer tops YouTube's February ad leaderboards


In unusual accolade news, this commercial compression of the PS4 reveal notched top spot in YouTube's advert leaderboards last month. The leaderboards, as Think With Google puts it, mark "a winning combination of promotion (paid ad) and popularity (organic views)."

Usually the words YouTube and "popularity" go hand in hand with the likes of 'cat,' 'Charlie bit my finger,' and 'Harlem Shake' - Pepsi's rendition came in at fifth - so in that sense it's unusual to see a games console on such a list, even if it may mark Sony's PS4 push more than anything. Whichever way you look at it, one thing it does mean is a whole ton of eyes on these 103 seconds of new-console-ness.
