PlayStation 5 won't be released until 2020, but Sony has already patented PS6, PS7, PS8, PS9 and PS10

Sony plans to release PlayStation 5 in winter 2020. The console has not yet gone on sale, but the company already believes

into success and makes plans for five generations ahead.

What is known

Gematsu noticed that Sony registeredin Japan there are five brands - “PS6”, “PS7”, “PS8”, “PS9”, and “PS10”. Apparently, the company not only believes in the success of the consoles, but also does not intend to change the name of the line. Microsoft has already managed to discourage fans by releasing the Xbox, Xbox 360, and then the Xbox One, but Sony fans are not in danger of such a development. It is interesting that the Japanese were not afraid of the number 9, like Microsoft and Apple, given that in the land of the rising sun it means “torment.”

It's also worth noting that this isn't the first time Sony has registered a console title for the future. In 2006, the company took over the PS4 and PS5 trademarks:

  • PS - registered in 2000 and released in 1994.
  • PS2 - registered in 1999 and released in 2000.
  • PS3 - registered in 2005 and released in 2006.
  • PS4 - registered in 2006 and released in 2013.
  • PS5 was registered in 2006 and released in 2020.
