We incorporated inviting UI throughout the platform to engage each user without overwhelming them with choice and too many decisions; each segment of every page displays one-by-one, complete with striking animations.

making it happen

Upon completion of the website artwork stages, our development teams were challenged with bringing the website application to life. As an agency our coding standards are what we are recognised for, both in terms of cleanliness and quality, yet also for speed, security and overall scalability. With the PlayStation Gear platform launched across multiple territories and in multiple currencies, the platform needed an intelligent bespoke code base that would allow the platform to scale and grow over time.

The outcome of the development stages of the project were just as we planned, a sharp, sophisticated, secure and ultimately usable platform. Our project management teams implemented a fully agile project management approach, creating manageable sprint plans for both the teams and client with quality assurance channels built in throughout. Our development teams ranging from database engineers, UI developers, back-end developers, to system architects brought to life a truly remarkable website platform.

Fully accessible

Creating a website that pushes design boundaries, yet remains easy to use, is where we excel. The PlayStation Gear website is no exception, accessible across all devices, including all Android phones and tablets, iPhones, iPads and, of course, the PS4 console.

meeting the target audience

The platform combines the needs of gaming veterans as well as gaming gifters, through immersive content and information for those that want it, and easy paths to purchase for those that don’t.

Marketing Strategy

PlayStation Gear Icon 1 Territory Role Out

Launching a website across three territories simultaneously, while considering a 30 territory roll out within the first 12 months, requires complex planning of technical elements and scalable strategies, including seamless translation integrations, content localisation and omni-channel tactical management.

PlayStation Gear Icon 1 Traffic Activation

We employed an omni-channel digital strategy to deliver aggressive results from the offset, ensuring all potential customer touch points across identified demographics across Europe were considered, from organic and paid search tactics to content creation, behavioural based email triggers and data management.

PlayStation Gear Icon 1 Finding The Website

Ensuring the PlayStation Gear website could be found from the point of launch across search engine results pages for branded and non branded search queries required diligent application of search techniques, including schema markup and href language tags, on-page optimisations, and value-adding non-duplicated content across products.

PlayStation Gear Icon 1 Driving Sales

Driving sales remains the core objective, achieved through robust user flows, intelligent upsells through the activation of related products, and clear paths to purchase.

PlayStation Gear Icon 1 Audience Understanding

The customer is at the heart of the journey and, for us, creating a symbiotic engagement between user and product is vital, regardless of whether they are a hard-core gamer or a gifter. We combined human insight with innovative thinking to create an inspired, tailored user experience, that we refine constantly in line with user interaction across the site.

PlayStation Gear Icon 1 Behaviour Analysis

Committed to delivering results and never losing sight of the purpose of the website, our creative action and decision-making is always thoroughly informed by customer feedback alongside actual user behaviour to ensure that the path to purchase is as easy and seamless as possible, with blockers to conversion addressed consistently.

The End Result

With an effortless design, a seamless user journey, and a robust marketing strategy, the PlayStation Gear website is taking the gaming world by storm.
