Last week, Sony registered some patents for its next PlayStation model, PlayStation 5 and today LetsGoDigital published some Brazilian patents which might be leaks of none other than Sony’s PlayStation 5.
Sony had applied for the patent in question back in May and finally, it was registered as a Sony electronic device on August 13. The patent is designed by Sony Technical Director Yusuhiro Ootori.
The most fascinating thing about the PlayStation 5 patent is its design. The design is V-shaped. It can be noted that this is possibly a reference to the Roman numeral V which means 5.
Meanwhile, LetsGoDigital, the Dutch website mentions that Sony has designated PlayStation 5 as a Class 14.02 patent. Incidentally, the current generation of Play Station, PlayStation 4 was also registered as a 14.02 patent by Sony before its launch. The Dutch website further elaborated that Sony patents designs of only of those models which it intends to release.
As far as the design of the new PlayStation model is concerned, this PlayStation 5 looks more pretentious than the last two generations, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
Early look at the next-generation PlayStation suggests that PlayStation 5 might be bulkier device than its previous generations. It is true that finished products never look similar to their patent diagrams but it is very much possible that the patent image is an early build version of the PlayStation that will eventually turn out to be PlayStation 5.
With the hype of PlayStation 5, things are getting more and more interesting as we are getting leaks about features and specifications of the gadget. There is lots of noise regarding PlayStation 5 games even today even though PlayStation 5 is still over a year away from its release.
There is also a leaked email which suggests that PlayStation 5 will be launched in February 2020 but Sony is yet to publicly confirm the date.
