Sony Playstation 1 Logo Design Ideas and Concepts

I know the Sony Playstation 1 Logo Design Ideas and Concepts isn’t exactly breaking news, as it’s been floating around for a while, but it’s always nice to get a refresher.

I came across it again by accident the other, and I do like looking at all unused concepts for any branding project, then comparing them to the chosen one.

As a freelance logo designer, it’s generally always heartening to see another designers/studios early logo concepts, as they are rarely works-of-art when compared to the final logo design.

I’m always looking back at my early logo design concepts, and often laughing and/or crying, at how awful they are.

Some of these early Sony Playstation 1 designs are interesting to say the least, but the whole process of exploring these early ideas generally leads you to potential fame and glory.

The Sony Nintendo Playstation Console

Here is what the Sony PS1 was supposed to look like before Sony took it on without Nintendo.

 

Wikipedia: PlayStation (Japanese: プレイステーション Hepburn: Pureisutēshon, officially abbreviated as PS) is a video gaming brand that consists of four home video game consoles, as well as a media center, an online service, a line of controllers, two handhelds and a phone, as well as multiple magazines. The brand is produced by Sony Interactive Entertainment, a division of Sony, with the first console releasing as the PlayStation in Japan released in December 1994, and worldwide the following year.[1]

The original console in the series was the first console of any type to ship over 100 million units, doing so in under a decade.[2] Its successor, the PlayStation 2, was released in 2000. The PlayStation 2 is the best-selling home console to date, having reached over 155 million units sold by the end of 2012.[3] Sony’s next console, the PlayStation 3, was released in 2006, selling over 87.4 million units by March 2017.[4] Sony’s latest console, the PlayStation 4, was released in 2013, selling a million units within a day, becoming the fastest selling console in history.[5] The next console in the series, the PlayStation 5, is expected to be released by the end of 2020.[6]
