Sony PlayStation 5 Logo Revealed
PlayStation President and CEO Jim Ryan took the stage at CES 2020 today to finally unveil the long-awaited PlayStation 5…logo.During the Sony CES keynote event, Ryan shared some notable milestones for the PlayStation 4 before talking up the company’s next-gen consoles. Other than confirming the previously known holiday 2020 release window, Ryan shared the logo for the PlayStation 5.
If you’re not familiar with it already, the PlayStation 5 logo is similar to that of the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Except with the five numeral in place of the three and four. Much like the name of the console, the logo is a natural progression of Sony’s console evolution.Ryan also confirmed that Sony will be sharing more details about the PlayStation 5 in the future, but considering it’s only January that leaves the whole calendar year open for potential PlayStation 5 reveal events.In non-PlayStation 5 logo news, Ryan revealed that the PlayStation 4 sold 106 million units, 1.15 billion games, 5 million PlayStation VR units, and has 103 million monthly active users of which 38.8 million are members of PlayStation Plus.
Microsoft has gotten a bit of a headstart with its next-gen reveal by showing what the Xbox Series X looks like. Sony, by comparison, has kept relatively quiet about the PlayStation 5, choosing to trickle out information over the months, including the name and the logo. That hasn’t stopped the internet from posting leaked images of the rumored PS5 dev kit.For more of IGN’s next-gen coverage check out our comparison of the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5, and check out the website for more from CES 2020.
