Once again, Devildriver1313 is back to bring you more news in the world of gaming. Sony has revealed the logo for its ninth generation console, the PlayStation 5. Sticking with the “tried and true” formula of ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’, the logo is pretty much the same design they used for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. No bells and whistles here folks, just a simple logo with the trademark “PS” symbol from the early days of the original PlayStation. At CES 2020 conference, Sony also revealed the latest sales for their PlayStation VR and PlayStation 4.
Sony has sold more than 5 million PSVR headsets since the device debuted in 2016 and the PlayStation 4 has reached 106 million units sold to date, making the second best selling console behind the PlayStation 2. The PS2 still holds the record for the best selling game console of all time with 158 million units sold. With the PS5 ready to launch late this year, the odds of the PS4 catching up to its granddaddy by then is not happening.
Sony is still keeping quiet about the details regarding their new baby. The console’s final design has yet to be revealed and details on the controller are sketchy at best. If Sony is known for one thing, its keeping a tight lid on their products until its time for the grand reveal. This is the same tactic they used for the PlayStation 4, revealing only the controller weeks before presenting the console at E3 2013. Unlike Microsoft who already revealed their next console, Xbox Series X, at the Video Game Awards 2019 last month. The home of Halo has done this before with the Xbox One, revealing the full console in May 2013 ahead of Sony who patiently waited until the grand stage of E3 to reveal the PS4. And Sony will likely do so again, waiting until E3 2020 to present the PlayStation 5 to the masses. Until then, we’ll have to wait before we know more about the system.
Until then, I will see you “On the NXT LVL!”
