PS5 Logo Revealed At CES 2020, Xbox Series X CPU Shown Off On Twitter
Fans may have expected to see Sony to follow in Microsoft’s footsteps and finally unveil its next-gen console at CES 2020, but they will have to settle for its logo. The company’s presentation revolved more around sales figures for the PS4. The PS5 did eventually get a mention, with its updated branding being shown off.
The logo remains unchanged at its core, an exact replica of the PS4 logo but for the “5” at its end. As for Sony’s PS4 presentation, the company showed off the console’s lifetime sales numbers as a testament to its dominance over the space.
The PS4 has sold 106M units and 1.15 billion games to date. The console’s PSVR add-on, despite the slow adoption of virtual reality systems, has managed a total of 5 million units since its release. The console enjoys the attention of 103M active users, with 38.8M of those subscribed to its premium PS Plus service.
Not to be left behind, the Xbox Series X too made an appearance, with AMD offering a fresh look at the upcoming console, which was first shown at at The Game Awards last month. Among the new information gleaned from the latest showing is the collection of ports, including two HDMI and two USB-C ports, at the console’s rear. However, AMD later confirmed to Polygon that the footage and the model shown in it weren’t sourced from Microsoft and shouldn’t be considered official.
Earlier during the day, a Twitter user noticed Xbox head Phil Spencer had changed his Twitter profile picture to a photo of the Series X CPU. Spencer said he had done the same leading up to the release of Xbox One X, and that the new profile photo would serve as a “lucky coin.”
Thanks. I'm keeping this with me until we ship. Worked well for Scorpio, my lucky "coin". Oh, and getting a lot of questions today, I'm happily at work in Redmond today.
