    Well it's not that innovative, but hey, you get pumped when it's official! Besides, there was this press conference where Jim Ryan confirmed the obvious details about the PS5... nice.

    It’s crazy I remember when the PS4 came out it still feels not so long a go. But it was 2013 it’s pushing 7 years now. The Pro is 4 years this year. But 2017 Bday I Got the Pro so that’s why it still feels like yesterday to me still. I’m still very happy with the Pro but it’s slowly showing it’s age. With certain games you can see it looks amazing but with some it’s not as good. It’s definitely gonna be exciting time’s ahead and I’m looking for to seeing the unboxing videos again lol. The next GT will once again look incredible. The PS5 will be another great console by Sony. :D

    I’m excited to learn if any of the rumours for backwards compatibility are true. If not it’ll be pretty sad seeing Microsoft blow Sony out of the water two years in a row for that, first with just having it in the first place and now with compatibility with each generation.

    Cross platform and backwards compatibility is high on my wish list too. Together with a new version of PSVR. I do most of my racing on PC in VR. Can't beat that.

    VR, this is what I'm most interested in. Hopefully it will be cable free and an option on all racing games.

    I think the best logo was PS2 with its 90 degree angles.

    PS5 + 5G = play Gran Turismo at home as you're on the circuit.

    Could not have sayd it better my self. These are also very important for me.

    Just thinking about having a full Gran turismo in VR makes me start laughing from exitement :-)

    Also hope they go for a normal design, and not a tower like as the new Xbox ( Wont fit into my TV rack)

    Yes. I particularly love the way they have changed the 4 into a 5, which really gives a clear indication of progress and ‘advancement’ of the series. I think the idea of using a different number or even a letter, like 6 or X etc., would just have over-complicated things, and hence the ‘5’ was a wise choice. The ‘PS’ section invokes memories of previous logos and says to me ‘stability’, ‘reliability’, ‘continuity’ - a reassuring nod to the past, coupled with the ‘future’ (5). It is, frankly, a work of genius.

    Hoping we won't have to wait for too long for both of them to come out.

    Much better than Xbox at least, Sony is making it less complicated and it looks like Sony will continue this, since Sony have secured the PS brand from PS6 up to PS10, I wouldn't have it any other way :).

    You posted a rumour. That isn't breaking anything.

    No I posted as it happened.
    :confused:
    And it was posted as "news" 5 hours later with kinda the same things I said as it happened.
    Now I didn't go into the whole "numbers" and whatnot. but you can only do so much with 120 or so.

    It is indeed. And well worth all the money I expect the design team were paid to create it.

    This console is the only one possible to buy since I bought my PS3 but ONLY IF it has backwards compatibility with PS2,3,4.

    I know this is (probably) sarcasm, but I don't think there's anything wrong with keeping the logo relatively the same with the only change being the number.

    Do you really expect them to navigate the entire website in order to find out that someone posted something vague on some relatively obscure part of the site? Unless you literally went directly to them with this source of information, I don't see what's so confusing here.

    How I imagine the logo design went:

    Open PS4_LOGO.psd
    Click the Text Box
    Highlight 4 and type 5
    Save As PS5_LOGO.psd

    The sad part is, Sony probably paid a team a whole bunch of money to come up with that logo. Even more, if they hired "consultants" to be useless like most consultants are.

    Perhaps you should make a thread instead of just posting a status update? I know I rarely read status updates and I'm guessing that goes for many members of the site.

    I am planning on quitting my job this summer and becoming either a logo designer or a consultant who specialises in sequel logo design.

    I already have a ton of ideas, for example my provisional PS6 logo.

    Guys, I spoke to some of my people and I can give everyone their first-look at the provisional logotypes for the next four generations of PlayStation home entertainment consoles.

    Enjoy.

    Me and @Touring Mars will go over the numbers in due time.

    Please no sue.

    The best thing about the PS2 logo is how current its colour scheme is today:

    5 million VR units shifted is impressive. The tech is becoming affordable now as well - stand by for a two-tiered VR experience...
