At CES 2020, Sony has revealed the logo for the new PlayStation 5. The next-generation PS5 console, however, was not shown at the event, as one would have hoped.

The new PlayStation 5 logo is nothing revolutionary. It's pretty much the same as the PS4 logo, except that the ‘4’ in the logo has been replaced with a ‘5’. Essentially, Sony was quite reserved in letting out any details about the new console.
