Hilarious video roasting ‘new’ PS5 logo goes viral

Sony unveiled a lot about their plans for 2020 at CES, including their next iteration of PlayStation. Perhaps unexpectedly though, the most simple part of their reveal got the most attention – the PS5 logo.

It surprised no one when Sony announced in 2019 that the next PlayStation would be the PS5. It wasn’t very inventive, but it was logical — something Xbox has been criticized for lacking with their seemingly arbitrary naming… considering Xbox One was their third console.

Even less inventive, is the console’s new logo — although ‘new’ is being somewhat generous. It bears the exact same layout, font and styling as the PS3 and PS4 logos before it, except of course with a 5.

SonyThe new logo is almost identical to PS4 and 3.

It’s as safe as logos come, and while it does an adequate job, the internet was quick to make a mockery of Sony’s hard work.

It didn’t take long before Twitter was in a frenzy, jesting about the unbridled creativity of the graphic designers behind the new logo, alongside the time and effort they must have put in.

One actually creative video reenacted what the process must have been like for the ‘lead designer,’ simply replacing a 4 with a 5, and calling it a day.

The post quickly racked up nearly 100,000 retweets, as PS5 logo memes became the new hot commodity on Twitter.

Although it may look like it took little to no effort, others pointed out that it was still probably deliberated over for days (possibly weeks), before the marketing team circled back around and went with the tried and tested logo.

It wasn’t just Twitter of course, as Reddit’s r/gaming community were having a field day with the logo. The top voted post of the day was another showing the simplicity of the design — a copy and paste of the ‘P’, just swiveled upside down.

It wasn’t all at the expense of Sony’s design, though, as one creative user reimagined the PS5 if it had the logo of past consoles. The electric blue of the PS2 logo is a particularly good fit.

Sony surely won’t mind all the mockery of their logo, after all, it’s just more eyeballs and discussion on their new product. Maybe they knew all along that a simple, nearly unchanged logo would get more reaction than a new one.

It even became the most popular Instagram post ever made by a company. So it’s done the job of capturing people’s attention at least.

However, it did somewhat overshadow some of the more important information, such as some of the new hardware specs of the PS5.

How to complete Quests in Fortnite Season 5: Challenges & rewards

With Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5, challenges are seemingly no more, at least in the form that they’ve taken for a while. Now, players are able to complete quests, which operate in a similar way but are a bit different nonetheless. Here’s what you need to know about them.

For a while now, players in Fortnite have been completing challenges in order to help level up their battle pass. These challenges tasked players with completing certain objectives around the map and, in return, they are given rewards, mostly XP. It ended up being one of the main ways players could grind up their battle pass tiers and overall level.

Now, with the start of Season 5 in Chapter 2, challenges are gone, at least in the form they once took. Now, players will have to complete Quests in order to level up their battle pass. But how do you complete them and what are the actual requirements? Here’s what you need to know.

What are Quests in Fortnite Season 5?

Quests can be found in its own menu on the left-side of the screen.

Jumping into Fortnite Season 5, one might be a bit confused as to what Quests are and why they’ve replaced challenges. While don’t know for sure why exactly they’ve taken the place of the latter, you can rest assured that they operate almost identically to the old format.

In Fortnite’s main menu, you should see a button to press on the left side labeled Quests. Clicking it will bring up the map and all your Quests, similar to how it’s been in previous seasons. That being said, these new “challenges” are a bit more narrative-focused, having quotes alongside them.

Chapter 2 Season 5 Quests list

Epic Games
Fortnite Quests are similar to challenges from previous seasons.

Quests are split up into different rarities. Everyone seems to have the two same Legendary Quests, alongside some rare and uncommon quests that are different from player to player. Once a quest is done, a new one pops up in its place, which presumably will keep happening until you’ve gone through every single challenge.

That being said, for the two Quests that everyone does have, here’s what you need to complete:

  • Mandalorian Bounties: Complete Bounties
  • Legendary Quests 1: Four Stages
    • Stage 1: Shotgun Eliminations
    • Stage 2: Assault Rifle Damage
    • Stage 3: Sniper Rifle Elimination from 150m
    • Stage 4: Deal Explosive damage to structures
  • Legendary Quests 2: Three Stages
    • Stage 1: Discover Named Locations
    • Stage 2: Talk to a character
    • Stage 3: Collect bars

New Quests should be available every week as the season goes on, much like the challenges of old. We’ll be updating this piece with new objectives as they become available.

All in all, it seems like Quests are a more refined version of challenges; gone is the long list of tasks and now we have a more organized experience. Here’s hoping that Epic continues with this style in the future.
