A new trademark filed by Sony points to a possible replacement for PlayStation Home, or maybe a next-generation equivalent.

The trademark for “Bigfest” was filed last year, but only just became published. According to it, BigFest is an interactive space for people to view websites, video content, and access social networking services. The official description reads:

“Hosting on-line web facilities for interactive game play; hosting web sites of others for video and computer games or parts of video and computer games created by others on a computer server for a global computer network.”

“Introduction and social networking services, namely introducing video game players to each other for the purposes of playing multiplayer games online, participating in online games communities and competitions and online player networking and social introduction.”

This sounds an awful lot like PlayStation Home, so could this be a replacement that Sony has been working on? The other possibility is that this is the PlayStation 4’s improved version of Home, which would make sense, new console new feature.
