The PlayStation 5 Logo Is Quite The Revelation

The numbers...what do they mean?

As part of their CES 2020 presentation, Sony’s Jim Ryan took to the stage to unveil the much anticipated logo for this year’s PlayStation 5, which is indeed a logo.

Speaking during the keynote, Ryan shared some impressive numbers about the history of the PlayStation 4 before revealing the most important number of all: that the PS4 logo has swapped the 4 to a 5.

Just in case you were too bedazzled by it as the cover image of this story, here it is again. Take a deep breath.

There’s not really much that can be said here; they’ve swapped the 4 to a 5 and stuck to — what looks like — the exact font as the PS4. It’s difficult to truly get excited for a logo, but it’s smart for Sony to stay on-brand and not stray from a design that has been so successful for them this generation.

That success has seen the PlayStation 4 sell 106 million units and over a billion games with 103 million monthly players indulging in them, 38.8 million of whom are PlayStation Plus subscribers.

It’s still early days for the PlayStation 5, but you should expect the marketing train to really kick into gear as we move towards its release window late this year. Might Sony return to E3 for the big reveal?

Before then, we may as well look back at some of the greatest games Sony’s magic box has provided us over the last six years.
