Sony Trademarks PS6, PS7, PS8, PS9, & PS10 in Japan
As early as in the fourth quarter of 2020, PlayStation 5 will hit the market. Meanwhile, Sony Interactive Entertainment has registered names in Japan that most likely refer to future generations of consoles – PS6, PS7, PS8, PS9 and PS10.
For comparison, below are the release dates of individual generations of the PlayStation console and the date of registration of subsequent abbreviations:
- PS (registered in 2000, premiere in 1994)
- PS2 (registered in 1999, premiere in 2000)
- PS3 (registered in 2005, premiere in 2006)
- PS4 (registered in 2006, premiere in 2013)
- PS5 (registered in 2006, premiere in 2020)
The race for the next generation of consoles has already begun and although Sony is mainly focused on PlayStation 5, the company does not want to forget that there is a future ahead and with this Internet, anyone can annoy the marketing campaign. For this reason, the company wanted to ensure that no one else can use the acronym “PS” and the number that it touches to refer to one of its future consoles.
The PlayStation brand is already owned by Sony, as well as any official name of a machine that they have put up for sale, but that does not mean that reductions such as PS4 or PS5 are owned by the company. Now, thanks to this, no one else could use these nomenclatures for commercial purposes.
Do you think Sony names actually refer to future generations of PlayStation? And if so, when should we expect the launch of the PlayStation 10 platform? Tell us in the comments below.
