1000° Redirect Suggests PS4 Is Indeed The Final Name

THE SIXTH AXIS: Wednesdays are for the PSN Store Update. Everyone knows that. Whatever digitally distributed goodies you’re shelling out for preoccupy all your thoughts. So it’s not really a huge surprise that there hasn’t been much in the way of meaningful, interesting games news today.

On days like this, we have two options. We can either give up trying and just post bits and pieces like Sleeping Dogs and Hitman Absolution being cheap on PC at the moment or Bohemia Interactive making Arma Tactics for Nvidia Tegra things and putting mocap in it. Stuff that would barely warrant a sarcastic line from Tuffcub while he’s filling up Snatch. The other option is to mess about on the internet and uncover something odd, interesting and probably completely irrelevant.

I like the Orbis name. PlayStation Orbis.

SandWitch1661d ago

I don't. Reminds me of Orbit chewing gum.

Root1661d ago (Edited 1661d ago )

Well it was either chewing gum or a new type of mouthwash

Red_Orange_Juice1661d ago (Edited 1661d ago )

I never.. can't unread

They have two choices,its either PS4 or just PlayStation. I'd like their next game cases to just say PlayStation on the top, also keep current cases, they're small and awesome

Crystallis1661d ago

@ Gynga. HAHAHA too funny!

Army_of_Darkness1661d ago

They should call it playstation 4k.

KangarooSam1661d ago

@Army_of_Darkness: What the hell are they supposed to call the Playstation 4,000? :P

Nevers1661d ago

Ugh,... "Orbis" reminded me of these horrible HORRIBLE drinks.

Army_of_Darkness1661d ago

who cares about that, we'd all be dead by then;-)

zeeshan1661d ago

Hahahah @ Orbit chewing gum! :)

Campy da Camper1661d ago

Can you imagine that chicks voice as you navigate through the menus? "What's this? Dirty images in your photo gallery? Clean them up you naughty boy."

Montrealien1661d ago (Edited 1661d ago )

Or the drink Orbitz

anyways PS4 is the way to go, hands down. Can't wait!

nintendoland1661d ago

Funny? LOOL that was so shitt

problemchild841660d ago

Awww man i remember those drinks! My science teacher thought they were the coolest thing so she brought some in for the class when they came out.

The drink wasn't very good (had a strange oil-like viscosity) so i hope Sony just sticks with PS4 for the name.

Mmm not sure it works in japan it will be the 'death' of sony.

MYRMIK1661d ago

I'd like the next PlayStation to take the name Orbis!
PlayStation "Orbis": "world" or "cycle" in Latin
PlayStation "Vita": "life" in Latin

But if it goes with PlayStation 4 (sigh), so be it.

BitbyDeath1661d ago

Should have been obvious when Quantic Dream registered the domain

ape0071661d ago

nope it totally sucks, ps4 FTW

FamilyGuy1661d ago

It's gonna be called PS4 rather than Playstation 4


Ritsujun1661d ago

Oh god, you're still in kindergarten aren't you.

Unztayble1660d ago

why do I have to be in kindergarten to like the name playstation orbis? I'll like whatever the hell I want.

TAURUS-5551660d ago

that pic doesnt look like it can stay flat?

sarshelyam1661d ago

It's just an artists rendition...not at all indicative of what we'll actually see. For the reason you cite alone, this would never be a viable design. Hardware manufacturers like Sony are always going to opt for a dynamic design that allows vertical or horizontal placement of the console.

DarkBlood1661d ago

true,looks nice though, would make me wonder the purpose of it looking like that if it was real

Ritsujun1661d ago

Come on kid, that's not the official design.

DarkBlood1660d ago

Dont start getting pissed at a theory question now.

NastyLeftHook01661d ago

im sure if there was

ther is a 99% chance its going to be called ps4.

why would they change it?


bicfitness1661d ago

I thought that there was some Japanese negative association or superstition related to "4"; hence why SCEJ wouldn't go with '4'. But I could be completely wrong on that. The internet is not always a reliable source for information.

Rai1661d ago

Its not just Japanese, I think its most asian cultures. I think its because the number sounds the like word death. I remember my mom didn't want the number 444 on the license plate because of that. I could be wrong too though
