And the memes have started.

I’m not sure what people were expecting. PSV, perhaps? But then we never had PSIII or PSIV. And, surely, PSV is in use by the PlayStation Vita (remember that?)

Regardless, the familiarity of the logo has tickled some observers online:

Sony is of course yet to show the PlayStation 5 console and controller officially – although various photos of its futuristic-looking developer kit have already spilled online.
