Any word on changing the Spiderman font?

#1
I haven't heard anything on the subject lately, but has there been any word that the Spiderman font used for the Playstation 3 logo will change? Seriously wtf...

First the Spiderman dvd(which I like) and then this...

I feel so dirty for typing that.
URNotE was my handle for awhile in my darker days. Everyone just assumed it was an abbreviation for "you are naughty".

Can someone post a picture of the original font already clone-brushed out. I'd like to mess around with it but am to lazy to bother with the first step. :D

honestly i want a logo on there. f*ck spelling out "playstation 3." a badass logo has so much more gravity than spelling that shit out. meh. mmmmeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhh.

forget the font. i think its odd that sony is trying to pass this off as a do everything mega device and are still calling it a playstation.

Xbox360 is neither a box, an X, nor a circle, so what is your point exactly.

Ehh... can't say I like it. It doesn't look right with the console's lines.

Yep doesn't look anywhere near as good as the Spidey font.

The change in font is most likely a rebranding/repositioning exercise that almost every product/brand goes through at some point.

Playstation, according to KK, is now more than just a games console so a good time to change the branding to reflect that and distance it from its previous incarnations.

Probably look better a little smaller

Do you snicker a little to yourself when you have music "playing" in the background?
its not a matter of music or sports or whatever. its the device grouping of where the word is being used. Sony keeps saying its a computer, its Blu Ray, its gaming, its beyond HD beyond just a games console. Playstation denotes GAMES. GAMEcube denoted GAMES xBOX was a BOX that sat in your livingroom to play GAMES. Since day one sony has been pushing this to be something thats more than games and now the pricetag just amplifies that. The name just doesnt fit anymore IMO. brand recogition or not.

Meh, I'm thinking smooth black surface.
And a small "PS3" logo (PS2 style) on the side there, so right of the chrome strip.
That'd look a tad better maybe.
