Time to speculate people! Sony Computer Entertainment filed an application for registering a new logo at the Japanese Patent and Trademark office. Which indicates towards a new PlayStation related device or app.
According to the trademark notice:
[Serial Number 2014-93301]
Applicant: Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.
Filing date: November 6, 2014
Classification: 9 (electronic applications, machinery and other parts thereof), 38 (telecommunications etc.), 41
As you can see the notice gives nothing away, other than class 9 and 41. Which means this is related to gaming (class 9) and online gaming (class 41).
The logo which you can see above in the image, looks like the PS button is wearing headsets. So my best guess is, Sony is planning to release a new line of headsets for PlayStation devices. Or this could just be a new headset companion app.
Moreover, who can rule out the possibility, that this might be a certification logo for third party headsets. We can speculate all day but we won’t know for sure until an official confirmation.
With that said, Sony has released three PlayStation headsets in the past two years, so it won’t be a surprise if we see another one announced soon.
Whatever this logo is for, we’ll know once Sony decides to comment or make an announcement of a new product. Till then, feel free to speculate in the comments below!
