    What are your opinions on the PS3 logo? It started out with the spiderman lettering of Playstation 3 which I really didn't mind. I think it looked great on the console and when it popped up before the game starts but ever since the slim they are going with the weird looking PS3 logo. I personally don't really like at all and the recent update removed the old Playstation 3 that popped up before the game starts. I know I'm being picky but I just missed the old one.

    I didn't like the SLIM PS3 logo at first either but it kind of reminds me of the PS2 logo...just rounded. It's not a big deal anyhow.

    Isn't the new one written in a similar style to that of the PS2?

    It's odd. I never hated the old Playstation font. I don't hate the new one either. In fact, I like both.

    Ya that's what I missed the most. The fact that now it just fades to black leaves me empty inside.

      This came out a couple years ago...it basically entrenched that logo in my head.  So I'm fine with it.

    I thought the Spiderman font was pretty ugly.  I dig the new logo much more.

    I don 't like it that Sony changed their mind halfway thru a console's life span.
     
    But the new PS3 logo is better, although once again less original.

    ewww, I just turned on the volume.  This isn't the music/noise that going on when I saw it, I'm sure its somewhere on youtube . . . actually, look at the metacafe result when you google ps9 commercial. 
     
    But yea, I dig the logo.  I want to say this aired during the world series or superbowl years back . . . thats basically the only time I watch tv...

    I also didn't understand why people had a problem with "the Spider-Man font". (maybe because I newer though about it that way)
    And I also miss the chime when starting a game. They said it's so that all the console function you start up are more equal, but some on, isn't the first and most important thing playing games?
     
    But I'm fine with the new logo too. Reminds me of the PS2 logo and PS2 days, and I think that's exactly what they're trying to invoke. I think the logo will grow on me. I already like seeing it when I boot up my PS3.

    Oh, and as a side note, I'm also happy that it's the "PlayStation 3" again, and not the "PLAYSTATION 3".

    I liked the middle one the best. The new one looks horribly basic and makes the whole brand feel more casual. It's resulted in even uglier boxes as well.

    Good riddance Spiderman font. 
     
    It always reeked of a horrible "Hey, we've got this insanely popular movie franchise, let's exploit its font for our $600 console" sort of thing, I'm glad they got over it. 
     
    Not that the new one is good, really, but still.

    I started a thread about this kind of thing and how they changed the box for new PS3 games.
    Personally i hate the new logo, but was never a fan of the old one either.  I prefer the old one though, seemed more bold and like, fuck yeah, you got a PLAYSTATION 3 bitch.  Instead of, oh, heres a PS3.

    I really don't know why people hated the Spider-Man font. It worked pretty well, if you ask me. I think the Slim font looks sleek, too.

    I like the new logo.  
     
    Much more relevant to the Playstation brand. 
     
    Hated the Spiderman font. Seriously. Wish i could find a new logo'd, glossy top for my launch ps3.

    Ya I got that feeling too. I don't like how it just says PS3 on the slim and it isn't even centered. I prefer seeing the whole thing Playstation 3 written across the whole top IMO.
