CES 2020 Sony unveils PS5 logo and teases consoles unprecedented speed ahead of release this year


SONY has unveiled the logo of its next PlayStation console at a massive tech show in Las Vegas.

Unsurprisingly, the logo for the PlayStation 5, which will launch in time for Christmas this year, doesn’t add much to previous designs.

Sony has unveiled the logo for its upcoming PlayStation 5

It’s essentially the same as the PlayStation 4 logo, but with you guessed it a “5” in place of the “4”.

The logo was revealed among a host of other Sony announcements during a tech conference at the annual CES tech conference.

PlayStation boss Jim Ryan promised that the PlayStation 5 will help shape the “future of gaming”.

“Our promise to the 100 million strong PlayStation community is to offer the biggest and best in content, and to deliver unique experiences to gamers with unprecedented speed,” he said.

Fan-made renders of the PlayStation 5 were posted online last month

Fans were left a little disappointed following the press conference, which was rumoured to feature a big reveal about the PS5.

Instead, the company chose not to disclose a price or release date for the hotly-anticipated new console.

Gamers will be left guessing on those until later in the year though Sony has confirmed the machine will launch in time for “Holiday 2020”.

That means we can expect the snazzy console to drop around mid-November.

Early estimates have pitched the console’s starting price at around $600, or 600 in the UK.

Ryan ended the segment by teasing that “theres plenty to share about the PS5 in the months ahead.

“We look forward to sharing more details, including the content that will showcase the platform and the future of gaming.”

Sony officially announced the name of the PlayStation 5 in a blog post in October 2019.

It promises to be one of the most powerful and expensive games consoles in recent memory.

We’re expecting big-budget followups to God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn to join the console’s lineup of launch titles.

The next 12 months will be huge for gamers.

That’s because the Ps5 will be a direct competitor to Microsoft’s upcoming console the Xbox Series X, also out in late 2020.

Microsoft unveiled its upcoming consolelast month.
