New Name and Logo for the PS3

All good things must come to an end – but they don’t alway have a ending like this.

Come September 1, 2009 with the release of the new PS3 system, SCE will modify the PS3 brand name from “PLAYSTATION 3” to “PlayStation 3”. This is not a huge change if you ask me, most people have been spelling it the new way for some time, but a positive re-branding experience none the less.

Also the PlayStation 3 is getting a new Streamlined logo:

What do you think of the changes?

  1. Hi!

    I just discovered your blog, I think it's great. Keep up the good work!

    COncerning the PS3 logo, I think it's just a minor change, and that the change was made maybe to target new customers instead of the existing user base.

  2. Hi Dave!

    Thanks for dropping by.

    I agree the logo and name changes are minor enough that die hards won't mind and new gamers should be intrested in seeing what it's all about.


  3. Hey Dave, thanks for the comments. We're always happy to hear from the Feeders. This isn't unlike what Sony has done in the past with Playstation – PSOne
    Playstation 2 – PS2
    I think that what they;'re really striving for is a differentiation between the original monster and the wee little guy they're clearly going to forge ahead with. Once all stock on the bigboy is done, I expect it will go the way of the DoDo bird.
