As reported by Gematsu, Sony Interactive Entertainment has filed for several new trademarks, likely as a security measure for future PlayStation platform releases.
While securing trademarks as future security is nothing incredibly out of the ordinary for companies of this size, it may be of interest to some gamers to note that Sony intends to create new PlayStations for the foreseeable future of the human race. Applications have been submitted for “PS6”, “PS7”, “PS8”, “PS9”, and “PS10” trademarks, teasing gaming sleuths with the idea of future console releases and what technological advances they might contain.
The original information regarding the trademark applications was provided to Gematsu by peircesword via alis.to, and is viewable here, while the applications themselves can be seen here, though all text is in Japanese. Historically, PlayStation releases have been six or seven years apart, with the original PlayStation launched in 1994, followed by PS2 in 2000, PS3 in 2006, and PlayStation 4 in 2013. If Sony Interactive keeps to this schedule, fans can expect the PlayStation 10 to see launch sometime in 2055.
For now, gamers are looking ahead to the upcoming launch of the PlayStation 5, for which current specifications were released just this month. Using AMD’s Ryzen microprocessor that has 8 cores and 16 threads along with a Radeon Navi-family GPU, the PlayStation 5 will support real-time ray tracing rendering. It will also ship with custom SSD storage for fast load times in order to facilitate player immersion and support streaming from disc for 8k resolution. The console will also support 100GB Blu-ray discs and 4K Blue-ray video through its integrated Ultra HD Blu-ray, and be fully backwards compatible with PlayStation 4 and PlayStationVR titles.
