The internet has been having fun with the PlayStation 5 logo

CES 2020 marked the arrival of the PlayStation 5, in logo form at least. Unsurprisingly, it looks like the one that the company used for the PS4, and the internet has reacted in particularly humourus fashion.

When Sony's slot at CES 2020 arrived, some people probably hoped for the arrival of more than just a few TVs and the PlayStation 5 logo. Either way, the latter has proven incredibly popular online, with it gaining over 5.3 million likes on Instagram at the time of writing. Its similarity to the PS4 logo has drew plenty of ridicule though, and rightfully so. While sticking to the typography of the PS4 logo was always likely to draw criticism, its theatrical unveiling at CES 2020 likely helped the PS5 logo into being meme-worthy.

Below are a few examples of the thousands of swipes that people have made at the PS5 logo, or rather at the way in which Sony announced it. In all likelihood, the "new" logo may have not gained so much traction online but for the absence of any fresh information about the upcoming console. Personally, a re-imagining of the PlayStation 2 logo would not have gone amiss, as the PS5 logo is three generations old at this point.

The PlayStation 5 will launch this holiday season, with November 20 being touted as a possible release date. There is no word on when Sony will showcase the console either, as the company has confirmed that it will be sitting out E3 2020.
