    Sony's Next Gen console 'NAME'

    Thought to make this just to entertain us and keep the hype going until tomorrow.

    The Japanese have this superstition that the number four (and nine) is unlucky so I'm skeptical about the official name being PlayStation 4.

    Japanese superstitions, pfft!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yakuza 4 came out of Japan with great success.

    The name should be Playstation 4. Never have I seen a company use the codename as the actual name.

    Super fantastic play station fun time.

    Or maybe they'll go the boring route and call it PS4.

    With the "4" issue for Japan, I don't think it matters. While Japan is important to Sony they are not going to change the name for the entire world just because it's unluckily in Japan. Not gonna happen.

    Giant Enemy Crab Station. It will be based on actual Japanese history.

    Playstation 4. Easy to remember, easy for all consumers to understand it's the next version.

    I agree with you and Lethal. Nothing to get worried about.

    I don't think it will matter either. Japanese games seem to not mind using the number 4. Yakuza 4, Final Fantasy 4, MGS4 etc.

    PS4. No reason to change the tradition now regardless of superstitions. It's going to sell like a beast!

    I think they will go with Orbis to be in line with Vita. I will still be calling it PS4.


    Next Gen top picks:
    PS4: Infamous SS, DriveClub
    One: Project spark, Forza 5
    Multi: Watchdogs, The crew, FFXV, KHIII

    I was kind of thinking that with the Vita they were going to shift to a new type of naming system. Vita isn't a generic name like the PSP was. I don't hate Orbis but I would rather it be PS4. Not to mention PS4 or Playstation 4 would look much sexier on a console than Orbis.

    It will be Playstation Omni
    "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"
