Despite troubles, Sony ‘most valued’ Asian brand

Sony continues to be a popular brand in Asia, and that despite the troubled times the company’s recently had.

Fiscal losses of $3.2bn and the PlayStation Network breach were not enough to sway consumers, it would seem, as market research firm TNS — based on a new survey which polled 3,300 people between the ages of 15-64 — has awarded the ‘most valued’ honor to the electronics giant three years in a row now.

Samsung, Panasonic, LG and Canon also performed well.

After being restored in the west over a month ago, Sony’s PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be operational in Japan tomorrow, as announced yesterday.
