- Sony unveils PlayStation 5 logo at CES 222666.
- Internet reacts to underwhelming announcement.
- Xbox suffers controversy around AMD-sourced model of upcoming console.
Amid the tailored suits, corporate platitudes, andrehashing of known details, Sony Interactive Entertainment head Jim Ryan unveiled the PlayStation 5 logo for the first time during Sony’s CES press conference yesterday.
Remarkably similar to the PlayStation 4 logo, but with the numerical value swapped for a five, there was not much to sink our teeth into.
The PlayStation 5 logo is fine if a little drab. Lacking a little creativity maybe, but we can’t fault Sony for sticking to what works – free of frivolities, simple, and to the point. There’s merit in brand continuity given the raging success of the PlayStation 4.
The Internet Reacts to PlayStation 5 Logo
Right on cue, the internet erupted into a frenzy of reactions to liven up the PlayStation 5 logo news. In many ways, the response was better than Jim Ryan’s not-so-big announcement. Not much of a feat you’d say, but we’re ever so lucky to have the internet to pick us up when the powers that be let us down.
Stealing the show was this jesting reenactment of PlayStation’s lead graphics guru designing the logo. Load up the old PS4 logo, swap in a five, and job done.
Others laid on the sarcasm, commending Sony for pushing the envelope with a revolutionary new PlayStation 5 logo.
