Will the PlayStation 4 Be Called “PS4″ in Japan? PSLS Investigates

I went on a journey of discovery today. I learned the real name of the alleged PS4.
-PSLS (Next-Gen, PS3, PS4)

PS4 confirmed!!!!!!!

Totally confirmed. Orbis is terrible and obviously the "Vita" isn't doing all that great for them.

Vita = Life = Death = Funeral = Money spent by your love ones to lay you to rest.

Dont buy a Vita if you dont want to be a borden to your love ones....Buy gasoline and some matches instead.

well...
I would prefer them call it something new and fresh instead of keeping with the numbering system they have been doing for so long.

Orbis was a code name and probably not representative of the finished product. something a bit more catchy would have been nice.

In this case, I guess, 4th time is the charm.

PS4 should be released in the west first.

It's made in Japan. It should be released in Japan first. When games are made in England and other territories get to play it before anyone in England it makes me sick

I feel like this headline needs suspense music.

Absolutely brilliant. But what do you want to bet that people still won't get it?

Personally, after 3, whatever comes next should have a new name. Like Playstation 4, Uncharted 4, Killzone 4 etc.. doesn't sound right. The name should have Playstation in it though

I really hope so!
Seraphemz  +   930d ago
Lol.. is he making fun of the article on Kotaku?? that was pretty awesome...
knifefight  +   929d ago
It does have that vibe like "I'm looking at you!" through the piece, doesn't it? ^^;
strigoi814  +   930d ago
More likely

Great article. Good to see some light hearted fun back into gaming media
Lifebanisher  +   930d ago
let's just call it playstation 5 then. lol
izumo_lee  +   930d ago
Maybe we should call it the Playstation IV, so we can pronounce it as 'I' 'V' to inject some 'LIFE' back into this industry...eh? eh? :P

Back on topic, a great article from the guys over at PSlifestyle. Refreshing & funny at the same time.

If there's one thing the gaming industry needs more of, it's ivy
Ace_Pheonix  +   929d ago
...Poison Ivy? Because I agree, she could bolster some sales.
It will obviously be called the Playstation 4. This way in Japan Sony can market a Life & Death campaign with PS4 & Vita (Vita being Latin for Life).

lol, brilliant article
decimalator  +   929d ago
speaking of the Vita, Persona 4 Golden has been one of the few Vita games to do well and sell Vitas. Granted, it talks a lot about death... hmmm...
akaakaaka  +   929d ago
