Gamers have been patiently waiting for news related to the PlayStation 5 console. There are still plenty of console exclusive games coming to the platform, but players are ready for the next gaming experience.

Some players watch over trademarks to see which new games or consoles developers may be working on.

Piercesword on Alis, a Japanese social media platform using blockchain technology that awards users to create trustworthy content, recently published news about Sony’s newest trademarks.

Sony Interactive Entertainment has filed multiple trademarks for PS6, PS7, PS8, PS9, and PS10 in Japan. These trademarks may have been in preparation for future PlayStation titles.

Sony as trademarked several “PS” trademarks in the past. The lastest, PS5, was trademarked in 2006.

Earlier this month, Sony announced that the PlayStation 5 would launch in holiday 2020.

President & CEO, SIE Jim Ryan stated on a blog post: “Since we originally unveiled our next-generation console in April, we know that there’s been a lot of excitement and interest in hearing more about what the future of games will bring. Today I’m proud to share that our next-generation console will be called PlayStation 5, and we’ll be launching in time for Holiday 2020.”

The PlayStation 5 will feature a brand-new controller design. It will replace the “rumble” technology with haptic feedback to truly feel their gameplay. The trigger buttons now include adaptive triggers so players can feel the tactile sensations like drawing back a bow and arrow. Just these two additions have huge potential to make gameplay feel more immersive.

Before gamers get too excited about the new console, there are still highly anticipated games like Death Stranding, The Last of Us Part II, and Ghost of Tsushima coming soon. Death Stranding will be released first on the PlayStation 4 November 8, 2019, though a PC release was recently announced for Summer 2020.

While the news of a PlayStation 10 may alarm users, this doesn’t guarantee it will ever be in the works. Companies often secure trademarks to protect their brand.

Since Sony only trademarked up to the PS10, this doesn’t count out a possible PS11 for future generations to enjoy.

Either way, even after the release of the PlayStation 5, gamers will be patiently waiting for Sony’s next consoles to see what new features Sony has to offer.
