We're big fans of the Sony Playstation and even bigger fans of clever logo design, so it's a delight to see the internet discover a secret behind the logo of one of the first PlayStation games. The Wipeout logo was a product of its time, and while it might not be the cleanest or even the most readable, people on Twitter are just discovering that it's extremely clever.

A tweet explaining the history and meaning behind the Wipeout logo has rapidly clocked up a thousand retweets and thousands more likes. Many of the people replying were big fans of the original PS1 video game back in the late nineties but never realised that there was more going in the Wipeout logo than what first appears (if you're looking for a contemporary game, see our pick of the best PS5 games – and don't miss our live blog on the best Nintendo Switch Prime Day deals)
