GN reader?StargamerX?has uncovered?an interesting trademark application?from Sony for something called PlayStation TV. Note that it's also filed as a service mark, meaning that it's intended to be a service (think Netflix or HBOGo).
The application -- created with the United States Patent and Trademark Office -- was filed very recently, back on June 26, 2013. The trademark was last altered three days later, on June 29th.
Interestingly, a previous, ?dead? version of the PlayStation TV trademark?can also be found. That trademark was filed back in September of 2006 and officially abandoned almost six years later to the date, in September of 2012. Both seem to revolve around a simple mockup logo, seen below.
There?s little to indicate what PlayStation TV could be, or is. The application makes note that the filing, which originated with Sony?s home office in Japan, doesn?t make claim of the term ?TV? but rather ?PlayStation TV? put together.
We?ve reached out to Sony for comment and will update when we hear back. In the meantime, you can read the full application?here.
