Sony Has Trademarked A Telling New Slogan For PS5 DualSense Controller
Sony has filed for a new trademark in the US, and it’s one that will seemingly be connected to the PlayStation 5’s new controller, the DualSense. The trademark filing is for the phrase “Heighten Your Senses”–surely a reference to the DualSense’s haptic feedback.
Indeed, the application notes note that this trademark from Sony is related to “controllers for game consoles; game controllers for computer games.” It likely relates to how the DualSense controller will try to make you “feel” the actions your character is performing more. For instance, you’ll feel the tension of your bow in The Pathless, to give one example.
Like the PS4 DualShock, the DualSense will also feature a light bar and in-built speakers, so it’ll technically engage your senses of sight and sound, too.
This trademark application is seemingly still awaiting final approval, but it’s already being used by Sony in advertising the controller, which could mean that the trademark listing is simply out of date. The slogan for the PS5 appears to be “Play Has No Limits.”
The PlayStation 5 was recently properly unveiled, but we’ll be waiting a while to find out when it’s coming out and how much it will cost.
