Sony has officially announced the launch of PlayStation 5. They have specified the launch date of PS5 as ‘Holiday 2020’. So we guess it will likely be in late 2020 maybe during Christmas. There’s a massive hype surrounding the PS5.
Another news has been confirmed that Sony has already filed the trademarks for PS6, PS7, PS8, PS9 and PS10. It seems they have planned their future for probably the next 20-30 years.
Sony started building gaming consoles in 1994-95 when they released PlayStation (PS). They then followed it up by PS2 in 2000, PS3 in 2006 and PS4 in 2013. The next in line in this series is PS5 which will be launched in the last quarter of 2020.
Although filing trademarks don’t guarantee that Sony will bring in more consoles, it surely means that they have started planning for the future. They are saving the names just in case they plan to release them in the next few decades.
Sony has been doing this future planning method from long before. In the case of PS4, they filed the trademark in 2006, which is 7 years before the release date. They also filled the trademark for PS5 in the same year, 2006 and it hasn’t been released yet.
Sony likes to play it safe. Any other company using the name of PlayStation 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 would have been a huge setback so Sony has already filed the trademarks.
Until now, we will have to wait for a few more months to get our hands on the much-anticipated PS5. The console will be a black-and-white box with rounded angles and fins on the top. The DualSense Controller will also have the same colour theme as black-and-white.
