Sony plans to launch PlayStation 5 (PS5) during the holiday season 2020. Not yet launched, Sony is actually known to submit a trademark for the next-generation PlayStation.
Sony submits trademarks for several PlayStations, which include PS6, PS7, PS8, PS9, and PS10. Although it does not guarantee the console will be made in the future, Sony’s efforts will protect its PlayStation branding.
Why Does Sony Submit Trademark?
Quoted from Ubergizmo, Tuesday (10/29/2019), Sony is actually being aggressive with their trademarks. For example, console makers submitted a trademark for PS4 in 2006, seven years before release.
The name PS5 has actually been submitted in the trademark in 2006. However, it will only be released to the public in the 2020 holiday season.
So, Sony’s move to submit a trademark up to the PS10 is not entirely surprising. Despite the fact, the PS10 release will take a while.
Nevertheless, it is interesting to see how PS10 will be in the future. Given, the current and near-future gaming technology has evolved.
Currently, the gaming world is in the midst of streaming game services. In fact, with a faster internet like 5G, a special console may no longer be needed in the future.
