Logo: On a black background, a blue triangular symbol (similar to that of a play button, revealed to be the Focus device from the Horizon series) fades in and makes several trails coming out in the same color, revealing part of Aloy from the Horizon series. Then we cut to the Leviathan Axe from God of War, as many circle trail-like things surround it as the camera slowly backs away. Then we cut to Nathan Drake from Uncharted, followed by a closeup of Jin Sakai's face from Ghost of Tsushima and Joel Miller and Ellie with their backs away from each other; from The Last of Us. Then it cuts to Kratos and Atreus from God of War, followed by Astro Bot from Astro Bot Rescue Mission and Astro's Playroom, the titular characters of Ratchet & Clank, Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet, and a closeup of Kratos, until we cut to a shot of many PlayStation characters together as the camera zooms in. These shape trails resemble the PlayStation symbols. It then dies down into a blue flash as the corporate PlayStation logo forms from various light streaks, which then dies down as "PlayStation" in its corporate font fades in below, with "PRODUCTIONS" in a more basic font.
- Trailers have this logo shortened.
- Multiple variants exist where only one character appears. An example is Aloy being revealed by the triangular object.
- On the TV adaptation of The Last of Us, the logo is still and shares the screen with the Naughty Dog logo.
Technique: Amazing CGI.
Music/Sounds: A majestic orchestral fanfare which rises higher; coupled with a somber piano theme. Sometimes, the opening/closing theme plays instead.
Availability: Brand new and current. First seen on the trailers for Uncharted (2022), and made its debut on the film itself. Also seen in a post on the official PlayStation Twitter account on February 15, 2022, as well as the TV adaptation of The Last of Us.
