Turns Out The PS1 Logo Was A 3D Model This Entire Time

The logo for the original PlayStation, appearing every single time the console is switched on, has a strange secret that has been recently discovered and I don't know how to feel about it.

Last year, the console celebrated its 25th anniversary, and although the PlayStation 5 improves on this piece of plastic and circuitry in every way, the original gadget provided the foundations for a handful of the classics as well as the most enduring series in the history of gaming. Indeed, a significant proportion of PlayStation users want the ability to play titles from PlayStation 1, 2, and 3 on the PlayStation 5. And, remember those PS1 and PS2 themed DualSenses that set the Internet alight?

It's evident that the overall trend is towards an appreciation of times gone by. When things were simpler, the Earth was cooler and we didn't know what a "scalper" was. If you've missed out on a PlayStation 5, your luck may be about to change, as Sony has confirmed that it will be increasing the rate of production of PlayStation 5s in the next fiscal year.

Astro's Playroom is adorable, and it pays homage to the very best games on the PlayStation throughout the years. See if you can spot them all in these cute Easter eggs below.

In the year 2021 CE, it has now been revealed that the PlayStation logo shown whenever the console boots up is in fact not a two-dimensional image. Which is what I and everyone else on the planet thought. Should the operating system encounter a start-up error that prevents it running properly, the 3D model that composes the logo is actually viewable. Of all the things I thought I'd learn on the job today, this was not one of them. It feels like my whole life has been a lie.

Following this discovery, modders have taken the design of the logo and recreated it in Unreal Engine, showing the iconic logo as it was never intended to be seen. Case in point:

No. Take it away. If I gaze upon that image for any longer, I will be sick and that will not make me popular in the office.
