Sony Trademarks “VRPG” In Japan: Could it Be a Virtual Reality RPG?

on January 14, 2016 5:32 AM

Sword Art Online fans might find the latest trademark filed by Sony Computer Entertainment with the Japanese Patent and Trademark Office quite exciting. On December 17th, the house of PlayStation filed for the registration of the mark “VRPG” for class 9, which indicates games.

The description of the trademark offers no further indication on what it could entail, as it includes pretty much all the standard definition for game trademarks, but the acronym “VRPG” is definitely interesting, as it could stand for “Virtual RPG”.

While we have no way to be sure, considering Sony’s commitment to virtual reality with PlayStation VR, it definitely wouldn’t be too surprising. Most importantly, it would be awesome.

You can see the full registration document below.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
