Forget the Playstation 5, Sony is already thinking of the PlayStation 10
The long-waited Playstation 5 is finally hitting shelves *hopefully* during Christmas 2020. That doesn’t mean however Sony will rest on its laurels, some digging has revealed that Sony has filed trademarks for PS6, PS7, PS8, PS9 and PS10.
That’s right, according to some miners at Eurogamer, trademark applications in Japan have been found, they were made by Sony, the company which makes Playstations, and indicate Sony has already planned on obtaining the rights to a further five generations of games consoles.
Furthermore, Gematsu points out that Sony likes to lock in its trademarks early, with the Playstation 5 name being trademarked back in 2006, almost five year prior to the excepted release of the actual unit.
PS5 dev kit patent just leak- this could also be the Final PlayStation 5 design. What do you think of this design let me know in the comments! https://t.co/E4UgzPgae5#leaks #twitch #mixer #youtube #varietystreamer #xbox #gaming #ps4 #gamer #playstation #ps5 pic.twitter.com/wb2ac9a8f6— Azzurri23 [Mixer] (@Azzurri231) August 20, 2019
The trademarks therefore aren’t the best indication on when a new console would come out, though Eurogamer cleverly points out that a Playstation comes out every five years or so. With this maths in mind, we can expect the Playstation 10 teleported to us or injected directly into our brains by 2045.
The PS5 is already primed to be a major step up from the 2013-launched PS4. It’s expected the PS5 will have the following: Ultra-fast SSD for faster loading, 4K support for graphics, 8K video graphic support, an eight-core processor, and ray tracing, which is used for super-realistic lighting. Other additions include the haptic feedback controllers, VR support, 3D audio and backwards compatability.
Safe to say the PS4 is a big upgrade on its predecessor, so with that in mind it’s basically unimaginable how ridiculous a PS10 would be. Whatever year it comes out, 2045 or not, it won’t be soon.
