PlayStation Home it could return to the scene, perhaps through PS5, whereas Sony has again renewed the trademark in these days, with a series of information that suggests its possible use in the next period.
Obviously, the registration of a trademark can never be considered as proof of a product’s imminent arrival on the market, since it could simply be a precautionary maneuver by Sony, to protect the brand, but considering that it is the second time that this move is made shortly after the last one, with this new occasion dating back to July 21, it seems clear that there is more movement than usual around PlayStation Home.
For those who do not remember the question, this name identified the virtual world, halfway between social networks and 3D video games, created by Sony for PS3 as aggregation space integrated into the console for PSN users and a bit in response to the Second Life trend, which was then closed in 2015 by the company.
Apparently, the trademark registration is now valid until October 1, 2028, with the trademark officially referring to the categories “goods and services“and” computer game software “, which could be about a solution like the original PlayStation Home.
Although the relaunch of an integrated online social platform in the style of Second Life seems now out of time, it is not excluded that Sony wants to revive a similar idea to be used perhaps in connection with PlayStation VR, considering the intention to focus strongly on PSVR 2 with PS5, therefore it could be a real online virtual environment, in this case.
