NowGamer spoke to Naughty Dog's Christophe Balestra, and asked him what he'd like to see from PlayStation 4.
all I know is that PlayStation 4 won't be the final name
Well there has been playstation 1,2 and 3 so I don't think that they will change it to something weird like Playstation Turd-Nugget.
this is hardly news
I actually think that they won't name it PS4. They didn't go with PSP 2 and that was the most logical name to go with. I guess they will start to name each console differently (PS will always be there though) every time
It has to be PS4 If its not PS4 it will sound a bit like PS3.5 The same way Wii U doesn't really sound as evolved as the Wii 2...
PS 4 everything
It's going to be PS4, just because NGP is called PSV now, they're not going to change the name of all their stuff, PSV name may "suit" better cos it's handheld and the 3G version is in the cell-phone market as-well (odd names like Vivaz), so put a name that differ from the typical # but always keeping PS, or just they wanted to try something New :P
i would buy a ps turd nugget for atleast $5k just because of the name
PlayStation 4U! Bringing Entertainment from all directions. I just wish that Sony would make more color choices after their next launch. Also please produce custom bundled limited edition consoles for AAA games with color/graphic design make overs. I get bored with the same old black especially while owning 3 ps3s.
You'll be able to upgrade your PS3 to PS4. Firmware will be available in November under name of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.
probably. in japan 4 is bad luck and its pronunciation is similar to death and you know how superstitious japanese people are...
if that true then they mit call it ps next or some other random name too show it the evolve PS
death would make it sound cool to gamers..?
Why do you have disagrees? I've been living in China for 5 years almost and I know in this aspect (the number 4) It's very similar between China and Japan. You can rarely find a 4th floor on any building. It will just say 1, 2, 3, 5 and so on. 11, 12, 13, 15. So yes, the PS4 might not be called the PS4.
Bereaver: That's so dumb...it makes them, look insane for thinking the number 4 is bad luck.
How does it make them look insane? How is it any different from a lot of buildings in America not having a 13th floor?
@grz You know what else looks dumb? Randomly inserting commas where they don't belong.
@grzajabarkus: do u realize that u've just disrespected the other culture? You don't know jack; and bashing people who believe in something by saying they're insane only shows how ignorant you are. However, i do think that they should stick with the number i.e: PS4. Since the PS brand is worldwide, there's no reason to change the pattern just because of 1 culture. It also shows the development of the brand.
Don't forget that there is 2 ways to say the number '4' in Japanese; you are thinking of 'shi' which is one way of saying the number 4 and famously also means 'death' but as any first year Japanese student can tell you, 4 can also be said as 'yon'. Problem solved. Also, you have to remember that even in Japan they use English when referring to Playstation. Playstation 2 was 'puresuteshion tsu' and Playstation 3 is said as 'puresuteshion suri'. No idea how to romanize 'four' haha... 'fuowa'?!
It would be pointless to change the naming standards now.
Wii on U :) Anyway don't give the site hits HERE "I expect it to be more of a social experience, it’ll be a machine that will let you connect to all things, it will be like the centre of the house, so you can watch TV, listen to music, see pictures… I don’t know."
The better keep it "PlayStation #" I want my PS9 damn it!
why 9? i actually want Playstation 30. PS XXX xDDDDDDD
Thanks for harkening back to that landmark PS2 advertisement. Nice call.
haha, i remember that ad... i had a friend that tried to tell me he had the ps9... lol
They didn't go with PSP2 because it sounds too much like PS2.
You Don't know Jack Tretton
any chance it completely ditches the middle man being game-stores and just go ALL DIGITAL? sony has the 1st/2nd party studios and maybe they can come to an agreement with valve and work out something that will connect psn/steam? one thing we can be sure of after the new psp pricing that sony will make sure it will be under 400 at all costs and it would be ideal if its 349-299 price point but right now they need to concentrate on this gen i believe that sony's best days are ahead of them with ps3 selling well and software being really strong
lets hope its not PS PINATA or something like vita god help us
ps quattro would be acceptable bypassing 4 in japan without breaking the chain
This is true and doesnt sound bad eithier
I want the PS4 to come out when I get bored of my PS3 and feel like it's last gen...So not now
Hopefully the social experience in the PS4 won't take away the advancement in tech and power that it should/must/need to have.
