Background

San Diego Studio was established in 2001 by Sony Interactive Entertainment best known for being behind the massively popular video game series "MLB: The Show".

1st logo (October 2, 2007)

Logo: On a black background, a 3D grid of blue blocks appears with one row rising and growing in brightness, simulating waves. The screen rotates to where the grid faces the screen. Shortly before the camera stops moving, the blue blocks transform into a picture of a beach with palm trees during sunset. Then "SAN DIEGOSTUDIOS" fades in with a rough, water-like bar underneath and an orange color filled underneath the "O".

FX/SFX: 3D animation of the blocks rising, the camera moving, and the blocks transforming.

Music/Sounds: Beach and wave sounds.

Availability: Only seen on NBA '08.

2nd logo (November 29, 2007–March 27, 2018)

Logo: On a black or white background, there is a rounded shape consisting of a stylized "S" in either blue or black and an unfilled "D" in black or blue. Between it has the words "SAN DIEGO" and "STUDIO" in black or white respectively.

Variants:

  • On ModNation Racers the racer begins to startup his racer then it jumps in a blue foor with black screen and begins to accelerate. When it does so the blue wave appears with another racer riding outside the blue wave with another racer rides in it forming the same rounded shape with the words "SAN DIEGO STUDIO" fades in.
  • On Sports Champions and it's sequel Sports Champions 2 the PlayStation Move motion controller is seen. Then it acts like a table tennis rack in a purple color hitting a ball with green light showing the logo within in a 3D room. Then it changes into a disc golf in a red color and throws it with red light in it and then it changes into a bow and arrow in a blue-green color aiming it to the wall, then it releases it to hit the wall to reveal the logo.
