PAN-OPTIC. Those two words are clearly about some kind of camera. Perhaps some kind of new ps eye/kinect-type competitor.
xursz  +   539d ago
Good catch. I can see it being something related to virtual reality.

I'll bubble you for Interesting.

Alex Jones just posted a video on YouTube called "The Panopticon Prison System"

Patapon is from the SCEJ studio not SCEE.

I would swan dive off of my roof if the PS4 is something like the Wii U

What weirdly first caught my attention was how similar it looked to the logo of Guerrilla Games the similarity of it:

Lol.... so similar, and yet it isn't

It's also the name of an Isis album, which is interesting.

No, not really.
DOMination-  +   539d ago
Great album!
iamnsuperman  +   539d ago
For some reason this just reminds be of the Guerilla Games logo
GribbleGrunger  +   539d ago
I'm not keen on the symbol OR the name to be honest; although I'm still intrigued of course.
smashcrashbash  +   539d ago
The name of the PS4? A game for the PS4? A feature of the PS4?
FlyingFoxy  +   539d ago
Something to do with the hot/cold feature on the controller?
sherimae2413  +   539d ago
sony has been aggresive with these announcements in the past few days...
i wonder......
jujubee88  +   539d ago
Huh?
Sony has yet to release any PR statements regarding next gen rumors, nor have Sony released any PR statements regarding things like this trademark filing.

All this stuff is literally like a speakeasy situation where Sony are (behind the scenes) doing things to prep for next gen while "insiders" are leaking things out to the general public (aka regular people like us on n4g).

Panoramic Optical Control maybe? Sounds like something related to their rumored VR tech.
Donnieboi  +   539d ago
Finally, an intelligent guess....
USEYOURFIST  +   539d ago
i hope so, as i am excited by the ps4 for the next gen but the rumoured share button and touch pad arnt killer features for me, some vr stuff on the other hand would be amazing

I sort of agree. Though i am intrigued by the idea I'm more skeptical due to the sour taste Kinect left for me.
Donnieboi  +   539d ago
Look at this: Panopticon is a type of prison cell?

Dictionary meaning:

Noun
"A circular prison with cells arranged around a central well, from which prisoners could at all times be observed."

Hmm...is this really game related? Or something for a different Sony division (likely IS game related though, since it's filed by SCE).

Based on the def. my guess is a new all seeing playstation eye for ps4.
TemplarDante  +   539d ago
PS4... oh.. how we have waited for you!!!
Killzone 4.
GT6.
Uncharted 4.
.etc etc etc etc etc etc.
With the amount of quality IP makes, N4G comment space isnt big enough to list the PS4 Triple A's!
sway_z  +   539d ago
@TemplarDante

Yup 'cos we all want repeat software next gen don't we??

Killzone 4, GT6, Uncharted 4.....these games are good...but I am hoping for some new IP's to compliment them.

Endless sequels, endless sequels....Sony resurrect some of those cancelled or lost IP's from prior generations ....Plsss!
Mr-SellJack  +   539d ago
might be a new studio
Prodigy-X  +   539d ago
Its probably a new Virtual Reality Camera to rival Kinect.
