Trivia fact for the day: Spider-Man PS3 font all Kutaragi's idea

0

There will come a day, maybe 10 years from now, where you'll be sitting around a fire and playing Trivial Pursuit with your yuppy neighbors. And on that day, there will be a question in which because you love this site, you'll know the answer. That question: Who's brilliant idea was it to use the Spider-Man font for the Sony PlayStation 3? Your answer can now be a resounding, "Ken Kutaragi!" From PS3 designer Teiyu Goto via CVG:

"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 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." 

Clearly the correct thing to do was to use the Destructoid font. What amateurs.
