    PSU Wants YOU to Name the PS4

    Do you predict Sony naming it "PlayStation 4", going the "PS Vita Route" by keeping PlayStation in the name but adding something new, or "dumping PlayStation and forming a new identity"?

    Personally i wouldn't want them to call it ps4. I highly doubt they'll dump the "playstation" name because it's so well known. I think they'll go the vita route and add something new. The playstation 4ward or the playstation wiiu. Something dumb but gets better the more you hear it like the vita.

    I think they're going to name it 'Harold'. You heard it here first.

    What's wrong with calling it the PlayStation 4? Anything else and you'll just confuse longtime fans. Microsoft and Nintendo don't have this problem because they don't follow a simple numerical order for their brand of home consoles.

    I don't even like the name Vita, to be honest. :/

    Makes sense to name it the Playstation 4. (PS4) Like the generations before it Playstation, PS2 and PS3. Anything else and it would be a different console created by SONY.

    I brought up this point in your WA thread Black. I will be VERY surprised if the next PlayStation is numbered 4, seeing as in Japanese culture the number 4 is considered bad luck (along with 9). It is pronounced "shi" which is also how death is pronounced. For this reason room/bed/ward numbers in hospitals and birth wards etc omit the number 4 in Japan. It will be interesting to see if Japanese superstition/culture comes into play, I imagine it might, seeing how Sony is a Japanese company. I think that they will come up with another name, but still keeping PlayStation (ala PsVita).

    I think there is zero chance of them dumping the brand name. There is no need to. The legacy of Playstation is heading towards being 2 decades old, it's a household name. I always want their consoles to keep this name, no matter what suffix name they add to it.

    PlayStation Death $#@!es!

    Agreed. When I got my phat, I wasn't sure if it was a game console or some tech recovered from the Roswell crash. So black and shiny, brimming with POWAH!!!

    Natal Ps iToy (no real copyright issues here :P)
    Natal Is Typo (Perhaps Sony secretly knew)

    Then again. PS Pi would be fun. I always liked PS Phoenix.

    I would say "Playstation ______", like the PSVita. I recommend "Playstation Doomsday Machine".

    Well seeing that the next Playstation will be a vastly improved console in comparison to the PS3, I'd recommend we name it "XBOX" xD
