Sony Interactive Entertainment has filed trademarks for “PS6,” PS7,” “PS8,” “PS9,” and “PS10” in Japan, likely as security for future PlayStation platforms. This sort of trademark security is a regular occurrence for Sony.
PS9 better be an orb
Hell yeah, if im not snorting my consoles by then, im gonna be pissed!
Good. Hopefully I'll be around to enjoy snorting my games with PS9. I mentioned this before but I might need antihistamine tablets to play it but I'll definitely have fun before sneezing out my games.
So by that time if game "installation"(?)wil l be performed via nose[snorting] I fully expect EA, Activision and Bethesda to sell reduced purity products spiked with anything but quality..ehr "ingredients"!
God of War 26 confirmed!!!
PS10 needs to be a chip implanted into our skulls
I hear EA will have a console by then. It'll be delivered in suppository form. Bethesda's console will come in trans-dermal patch form, but it won't work very well.
Ye man snort it up and jack in lol
Lol I thought you said snort it in and Jack off.
We talked about this kind of stuff in late 90s when PS2 was about to come out, and joked about PS5 being a really strange futuristic device. Turns out it's just a box with hardware, cooling solution and a disc drive. Just like PS1.
Eh. That'd just be Sony copying the Okama Gamesphere who did it first. Edit: Forgot the /s
Exciting to know how committed to Playstations future Sony is
This isn't commiting. It's playing it safe
After the whole 76 first thing I bet a lot of companies will be doing this
I'm going to trademark PS11 before Sony...
Some of us will never see them. Consoles Spec when they get 10 yr support Unless Sony lets us download our self's to the consoles eventually.
Imagine a world where we're so busy that we upload a copy of our consciousness to an entertainment system and then download it back to our brain later so we can have the "memories" of a fun time.
Avery, I sure hope gaming will be just one application of this "experience hyperbolic time chamber"
San junipero better be out by the ps8 for that to happen.
That should pay off well in about 50 odd years. With your luck though, PS10 will likely be Sony's last console. I hear streaming is the future or something.
That's in 25years lol
PlayStation will be a brand that will be around for a while hopefully the Xbox does to.
Xbox is on it’s last legs
Is the PS10 the last Sony console? Sources close to Sony suggest it may be so.
Will TLOU 25 be the last singleplayer game?
Yes....but what does it all mean? I really hope all these game "journalists" delve deep into analyzing the implications of these trademarks. Then proceed to write countless unresearched and unverified editorial pieces where they don't even bother to ask for comment from the source itself. I mean... Then gamingbolt can ask a bunch of devs what the PS6-10 will bring. I mean...why only up to 10? Why only in Japan? Why isn't Sony talking about this? What about all the articles about how this proves Sony already lost? Doesn't this definitively prove that Sony is merely reacting to something MS is doing?
Well I'll be dead by PS 10.
I will be 60+ years old by then lol.
I'll be older and if alive, still owning noobs.
You can still game then and theres nothing wrong with that. I plan to continue gaming into a ripe old age...
I'll be like 66 hopefully nothing happens before then. Hope we all live a long long life.
Okay this may be a stupid question, or really stretching, but did Sony secure the trademarks for future consoles because of the Fallout First or whatever it's called website domain lost? I have NO proof of what I'm saying, just asking a question.
Na they do this all the time but this is the 1st to do 5 of them at the same time.
Exactly, the amount that were trademark at one time seems like they were trying to get in front of anyone else using them for whatever reason.
I think they did PS2-4 after the success of the PS1. I remember reading something about it long ago in a print magazine. Maybe I'm off on the numbers though. I don't know if anyone could just trademark these terms without a product or tangible thing to go along with it. Sony obviously has it, but it's not like domain names which a lot of people were buying up to resell to companies during the early years of the dot com bubble.
Thanks for answering, that's why I asked because I don't know if something like that is doable. Like you said it's different to website domain names, but to me it did seem a bit reactionary. I guess I should research how different trademarks are to patents. To see if a trademark can be claimed without a product, I'm sure with a patent you have to have something to show. Damn now I have another question, are Sony able to claim trademarks for products not yet developed, or is it that they are afforded the trademark on the likelyhood of delivering a product. I'll stop yammering.
I suppose they can claim trademarks for products not yet developed, because they did it here. There is something tangible attached to those trademarks, which is the PlayStation name, so it's not just some random filing.
If we go by the average 6-7 year lifecycle that PlayStation consoles have demonstrated then - PS6 will launch around 2027 - PS7 will launch around 2034 - PS8 will launch around 2041 - PS9 will launch around 2048 - PS10 will launch around 2055
Damn. I'll probably be dead, or close to by PS10. :(
pfft I will be dead before PS5 finishes it's cycle
Ps6 coming 2028 or 2029 I think the ps5 will be 8-9 year generation like ps3 and Xbox 360.
[email protected] how old are you.
@PhoenixUp 'The power of the cloud' means you won't have to wait seven for the next-generation, server specifications will be upgraded every 2 years!
So much for PS5 being the last Sony console.
People... We set for life.
Quick! Someone trademark PS11! In 50 years, you'll be rich when they buy the TM from you
Most of us wont be alive when 10 hits.
That's 35 to 40 years from now folks in their teens to 45 years old may we'll see the PS 10 people 50 & over may or may not.
I plan to be. I'll probably be tired of living by that point, but people do not spontaneously combust and I'm not suicidal, so I'll probably have to endure at least another couple decades of life after that. At least I'll have the latest PlayStation to make it that much more tolerable.
I'll be 56.
Ps9 will be an implant in the brain
Thats ps10. Ps9 will be a clear orb the size of a palm.
I wonder what my last ps console will be. Hopefully I can make it to PlayStation eleven. One louder.
"Play Louder" Gonna copyright that.
They saw what happened with Fallout and reacted.
Sweet! So much for dedicated hardware being on the way out.
Don't worry, Sony, nobody gonna pull a Fallout Fvcks you 1st.
Dang that's a scary thought unless the time between consoles begins to decrease, alot of us will be dead or unable to play games by the time ps9 rolls around.
I'll be in my 70s or 80s by the time the PS10 comes out. For that kind of wait, the games better be good.
Time to cryogenic for PS20...
Thats a powerful move to make.
25 to 30 years to go for the PS9 or PS10 , they better fulfill their promise of that commercial cause I will not keep waiting for nothing Sony you hear me!.
Its trademark reservation for the commercial maybe they will make it maybe not. Only the future can tell
Long live PlayStation! ('>')>
I doubt I’ll be alive or to old to play by then lol.
I've just trademarked PS11 in the USA.
Who knows when and if any one of us will be around to see these consoles release or whatever form they are. I’m thinking by ps7 or maybe ps8 maybe by that time the consoles will be getting future proofed. I feel like upgrading your console like a pc is going to come sooner than ps9-10 arrive. And I’m also hoping that I see the day where I have an 8x8 room that will be like a Star Trek holadeck!!! That would be the dopest thing ever, my bro and myself have been dreaming about this since we were kids in the late 80’s early 90’s.
