Sony Trademarks New Controller Name

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I think Sony's finally went crazy. They just named their controller name "P oo S." Read on fair users.

 

It seems Sony has trademarked a new brand name at the Japanese patent office, apparently for a controller. And it's called..."P oo S". Not quite unlike the aftermath of the Wii announcement, the jokes are already rolling in and let's be frank, that's no surprise.

 

Are Sony hoping to follow and succeed with the strategy Nintendo has utilized? As their rivals, do they hope an at first alienating name will sooner or later become highly identifiable, or is this just another silly move for the sake of publicity being creative?

 

Regardless of that, the source states the "oo" part could be the infinity sign. Or it might represent the two analog sticks on a Dual Shock controller.

 

While it's doubtable "P oo S" will stir the media as heavily as Wii, Sony haters surely get another piece of meat to chew on with this. It seems we have to wait and see if the patent bears actual importance as the Playstation 3 launch draws near. Lots of things can still change...

To quote a wonderful IRC conversation I saw just moments ago:

 

Piece of overpriced crap.

 

[Yes, the word filter makes it less cool.]

I'll need to see the trademark application to believe this. What an awful name.

At least their ad department is thinking differently...

About the controller, for some reason i wasn't suprised what Sony had done after what Nintendo did earlier. I mean Sony is doing what it does best.

Nice ad but...

 

How long before someone releases a photoshopped version with "KKK" replacing "Playstation Portable"?
