Sony Trademarks Mysterious New PlayStation Logo

on December 7, 2014 9:35 AM

Sony recently filed for the registration of a new and interesting logo at the Japanese Patent and Trademark office.

The logo, which you can see at the bottom of the post, looks like a PlayStation logo wearing a pair of headphones. Below you can find a translation of the trademark notice.

[Serial Number 2014-93301]
Trademark: [Image]
Applicant: Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.
Filing date: November 6, 2014
Classification: 9 (electronic applications, machinery and other parts thereof), 38 (telecommunications etc.), 41

It’s very hard to say what the new logo could be about. It could be a multimedia app, or a new line of headset for PlayStation consoles, or even a certification logo for the compatibility of third party headsets.

The only real hint e have is that it’s somehow related to games, as class 9 and 41 are applied to gaming and online gaming respectively.

We’ll keep you posted if anything else surfaces about this.

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.
