2013 – today
Since its release, PS4 has been using the emblem the original PS, thus making homage to the start of the series.
That emblem was the combination of two letters featured in the name – ‘P’ and ‘S’. The former was standing upright and slightly at an angle, while the latter was continued from the bottom tip of the ‘P’ but set against the ‘floor’ on which it stood – basically styled as a shadow.
The initial emblem had complex coloring meant for kids and teens, but the PS4 logo is much sleeker. It’s completely black (although some variations also feature blue ore white variations.
Emblem and Symbol
PS4 also has an additional emblem that simply says ‘PS4’, but in thin, stretched-out letters. These are written in a rounded, wide style with as little detail as possible. The ‘P’ itself looks like a ‘2’ without the bottom bar. That’s in accordance with the new, sleek design of the console.
