Logo description, captures, and editions by CuriousGeorge60

Background: 989 Sports was the former sports label of Sony Computer Entertainment that was used on sports titles for PlayStation systems like NFL GameDay series, NBA ShootOut series, NFL FaceOff series, and other sports titles. In 2006, it was folded into SCEA. Since then, the SCEA label is now used on future Sports titles like MLB: The Show series.

1st Logo


Logo: On a black background, we see "989 Sports" with a small "TM" symbol on the top left next to it. Under it is
989 Sports (1998)"Presents". Below the logo is a disclaimer, "989 Sports is a trademark of Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc."

FX/SFX: None.

Cheesy Factor: The use of fonts make the entire thing look very generic.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Appears on NFL Xtreme for PlayStation.

Scare Factor: None.

2nd Logo
989 Sports - CLG Wiki989 Sports (2002)

Logo: It's the same as the 989 Studios logo except, "STUDIOS" is replaced with "SPORTS". Plus, the word "SPORTS" appear quicker and later.

Variant: Starting in 2002, the logo was modified with "
SPORTS" being bigger. Plus, a "R" symbol appears instead of the ''TM" symbol and is next to "SPORTS".

FX/SFX: Same as the 989 Studios logo.

Music/Sounds: The same music from the 989 Studios logo with the crowd cheering added, which is heard before the animation starts, and the announcer says "9-8-9 Sports". On some games, if you listen VERY closely, you can hear the last note from the PlayStation boot screen's music as well.

Availability: Seen on PlayStation sports video games, such as NFL GameDay series, NBA ShootOut series, NHL FaceOff series, and other sports games starting with the '99 versions. It also appears on PlayStation 2 titles as well, including the USA version of Formula One 2001.

Scare Factor: None; it may be a favorite to some.
