If it's not the PS4 or Playstation 4 then that means the Japanese company is still too entrenched in Japanese tradition and superstitions.

I've been spelling it PS FWOAR!

I'd like to see...
sony break the numbering tradition. Call it anything but PS4 but at least make it a cool sounding name.

Genesis was the best name for a system (IMO) because it lived up to its beginning.

It was to be called Omni? Which doesn't sound bad at all actually.

In the devkits the Vita was (and still is) called PSP2. So what does this confirm? (and BTW: this "spec sheet" is soo fake).

Sorry but why would they want to change the name

PS1, PS2,'s like tradition for Sony consoles now to be numbered.

Why would they change it now

I think I recall hearing once that the number 4 is considered unlucky in Japan, so I suppose that could give some leverage to the console perhaps being renamed.

Personally I think they will bite the luck bullet and go with 4 anyway. Not to mention that it's almost coming full circle for Sony by reaching number for.

The 4 iconic button symbols in the initial trailer stood out to me as making a point about the number 4, but I could be reading too deep.

This superstition, whilst true, doesn't apply to Sony and their marketing of PlayStation.

Their consoles have always been known, marketed and prounounced in Japan as Pureisutēshon (PS1), Pureisutēshon Tsū (PS2), Pureisutēshon Surī (PS3).

The next one will be the equivalent of PS4 - pronounced similar to English. The Japanese number "4" won't be uttered when it comes to PS4.

PlayStation 4ever :P Soo Cheesy but I would like that.

silkrevolver  +   1017d ago
Guys, It's clearly going to be called the Super Famicom.
StrongMan  +   1017d ago
3rd time console gen winner.
-Gespenst-  +   1017d ago
The Pony Slaystation.

Or maybe it really is Playstation Orbis- which sounds like a made-up parody console- but could relate to the Vita's name. The Vita links gaming to life, while the Orbis (world, disc, circle, orb) links gaming to the world itself or something?
Fil101  +   1017d ago
Sound logic but still speculation none the less, 6 days to go and the internet will explode.
tigertron  +   1017d ago
Playstation 4/PS4, obviously.
a08andan  +   1017d ago
I bet it will be named Orbis. Then they will be able to use phrases like: "It's the circle of life. It's Orbis Vita. It's Playstation."

And THAT is a great phrase for marketing :P
