Sony snaps up trademarks for PS6, PS7, PS8, PS9, and PS10 in Japan

Sony has filed trademarks for  'PS6,' PS7,' 'PS8,' 'PS9,' and 'PS10' in Japan. Be prepared.

Actually, as you were. Gematsu – who was tipped off to the trademarks – made the point that Sony has safeguarded its properties in the past. The PS2 was trademarked in 1999, and launched in 2000, the PS3 was trademarked in 2005 then released in 2006, and the PS4 was trademarked in 2006 and came out in 2013. We won’t see the 'PS6', PS7', 'PS8', 'PS9', and 'PS10' for a while yet.

The company has only just officially announced the next-generation PlayStation 5, though that trademark was secured back in 2006. If the leaked dev kit is to be believed, it allegedly looks like an evil spaceship and it might come with a camera for live-streaming capabilities and an AI helper. Though it’s a zippy little thing, Josh isn’t keen on the idea of a PlayStation Assist

After all that fanfare earlier this month, we won’t know much more about the PlayStation 5 for some time now, but we do know that it’ll release in late 2020 – just like Microsoft’s Project Scarlett. Utterly unintentional, I’m sure.
