Sony Computer Entertainment recently filed for the registration of a trademark for the word “Bloodborne” with the US Patents and Trademark Office.
Keep Trademarking Sony. Do ur thang. Hey Abriael, Do you work for Dualshockers?
yep I do :D
All the recently news on N4G I've read in the past few weeks concerning Playstation has been because of you. Lets make a deal, Can you just call me and tell me everything you know? C'mon Man? :-)
Haha I don't know them in advance, unless I get a press release with an embargo, which does happen, but in that case I can't talk about it :D
DAMN! Worth a try. Keep doing what you do man. I look for your post on N4G now.
I personally think dualshockers provide the most interesting pieces of information. I like the fact that they fill us in on what insiders have to say and the news on rumored unannounced games that are in development. Certainly different than any other gaming site.. i enjoy it
Cool. I enjoy all of the dualshockers articles. You guys post some of the more interesting pieces of information. I also enjoy your articles on the 'insider' information, despite many people here complaining like little babies. It is good to have an outlet where we can get that info, I'd rather know 'insider' info than none at all.
I'm the type of person that, if I was in the position, would start trademarking random game names just to keep people on their toes and watch as the various other people at Sony try and answer questions on them when they have no clue what they are. Journo: "Shu, what can you tell us about the newly trademarked Swords of Xanthyl game?" Shu: "Oh... yeah, that's... wait... what?"
I'm not too sure they don't actually do that.
Well the thing about trademarking is that you have to show you have a reason for trademarking that name. Normally if a random guy trademarks a name, and then a company wants to use that name, they would offer a small amount of cash for ownership, if the person refuses then the company can take him to court, if he can't prove that the name is being trademarked for a reason, then they can reassign ownership of the trademark.
To actually trademark there has to be an intent to use the name. You don't necessarily need the product at time of trademark. It typically takes about a year for trade marks to be approved. I assume a big company like Sony can move things along though. To keep the trademark after it expires(10 years after registering), you have to show that you intend to keep using it within a certain time frame(not sure how long). However, you don't have to actually make a product using that trade mark after the renewal.
So that is three games trademarked before E3. Last year The Order was trademarked just before its reveal. Are we going to get three new IP's at E3 from Sony? That would be awesome! Plus The Getaway
2 actually! Destiny of Spirits and the Order was trademarked. As well as Panopticon! Which later revealed as Freedom Wars...
I hope it's related to god of war 4!
Yep to all who say ps4 have no games the flood gates is officialy opened
Sounds like a fighting game to me.Or I Think I been watching too much Bloodsport movies I need to lay down.
Man, I'm hoping it's a game dealing with a viral infection outbreak of some sort. Not a zombie game, but more a global pandemic with much scavenging and horror to ensue from the straggling packs of survivors.
I just hope it's something fresh and original. Don't know why but the first thing that came to my mind after reading the title was a game where you play a Werewolf or Vampire. That would be some topics that aren't really used up yet. (and yes, Elder Scrolls has both but there's still lots of potential)
Vampire game? Sounds like something from the Blade movies to me.
Uh oh, here we go!
Hoping to god one of these trademarks is for the Vita.
We need more First Party games from Sony themselves and hope E3 will show plenty of Vita games, bring back old franchise (reboot or sequel) to the vita.
I can't see Sony letting more than 1 FPS at a time develop for Vita
Sounds like some type of contagion/zombie game to me.
Nope, it's about two African American weightlifters.
who started a franchise called Gaming Gyms......
LOL. Well, my poor attempt at humour falls flat on it's face because for some reason I thought it said Bloodstrain ...
No more indies Sony. That's good. Nothing wrong with indies but more triple AAA games is better. Sony doesn't trademark Indies I know that. I just want triple AAA games. AND no vita.
If Sony trademarked it I highly doubt it's a indie
I'm having a deja vu... It can't be an indie. Indie developers trademark their own games. If it's trademarked by Sony it's a first or second party game.
There should be an "ignorance" option when bubbling someone down. Smh
I'm with you. I keep clicking on the bubbles system wishing I could type in my own option.
Either that or Sony are in the chemical warfare business.
hell yes. More new IPs.
I hope they won't show anything until E3 :D
Awesome! New IP's are always welcome!! ^.^
Trademark doesn't equate to new game. For instance, where is Chrono Break SE?
Exactly! lol it could be a new tampon for all we know.
A new tampon...lol ^_^
Hmm to me this sounds like a horror game or an RPG game
Sounds awesome. That's whats so amazing about Sony , they keep coming up with brand new gaming experiences while the Xbone lays stagnant . The downside is I'm drowning in games.
all these games! e3 cannot come too soon!
I read the title wrong and thought it said Blackthorn. Instantly reminded me of that old SNES game.
Please be an RPG.
Man...Sony is on a roll, so many games announced before E3! Boy, we're in for a treat this generation with the PS4!
This sounds like it could be Guerrilla Games new RPG IP that's written by the Fallout New Vegas writer.
Calling it now, bloody roar: bloodborne. Ehh sounds cheesy
that was awful lol, maybe we will see it at e3.
Skyrim killer or Dragon Age type of game. ^~^
