Did the old PS3 logo use the same font as the Spider-man movies?

Forums - Sony Discussion - Did the old PS3 logo use the same font as the Spider-man movies?

I remember back in 2007 when Spider-man 3 came out and I always noted that the font was really similar. Now I see it's the exact same. What gives? :/

Sony owns both and the blu ray was included is some early bundles.

Maybe they just like the font.



Well yes that's why they call it the Spiderman font. Sony was involved with Spiderman ever since 3 or so.



“If you really look at the PS3 contour carefully, it is rounded when viewing the console in profile. Rather than creating a typography with all the risks that entails, it was wiser to use the one from Spider-Man, for which Sony has the rights.

“It was also the wish of then-president Kutaragi, who insisted that I use this typography. In fact, the logo was one of the first elements he decided on and the logo may have been the motivating force behind the shape of PS3.

“We created the PS2 logo to blend in with the rectangular shape of the console. Personally, I feel very strongly that the logo would not have looked right on PS3.”

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
