Sony patents new logo, perhaps for PSN?

Neogaf and Gamefront announced that Sony registered a new logo at the patent office in Japan. There is quite a bit of speculation as to what the image could represent…heres a look:

ps logo

One forum reader stated it could represent what new games are compatible with the Playstation Eye since the image looks like a camera. I can definately see that. If you added the words “Eye Toy Compatible” to the graphic it would all make sense.

I would like to take this a step further, and conjecture that this may be the new logo for the playstation network. With playstation home coming to every ps3 console next year, and no real name or logo for the playstation network (other than the playstation nextwork), perhaps this logo will play into a bigger look and feel for the PSN. I mean, could you imagine Live being called “the xbox 360 network?”

Anyway, my personal opinion is (attention $ony) how about “Playstation Planet”?


In my humble opinion, the PSN should have its own logo, name, look, feel, ect…those are the things that make Live so good, and with Home’s integration features, and being free, it should be well on its way to at least look the part of an online gaming community/experience.



  1. cool logo.the PSN certainly needs some revamping. i dont think sony was ready to compete with live right out of the box. i think they figured they would build it as they go, which is kinda silly
