Sony has just filed for registration for a new logo that is linked to the PlayStation at the Japanese Patent and Trademarking office. As you can see, the logo appears to be a PlayStation symbol wearing a pair of headphones. This suggests that the logo will be related to some kind of new feature coming to the PlayStation that will involve music or sound. Could it be that we might start seeing music on PSN, or is it something else entirely? It’s possible that it could be a logo that third party headset designers will include on their headsets to make it clear that the headset is compatible with the PS4, or it could be the logo for an official headset from Sony. For now we can only speculate.
Here is a translation of the trademark notice:
