all I know is that PlayStation 4 won't be the final name

rabidpancakeburglar2694d ago

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.

colonel1792694d ago

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...

sikbeta2694d ago (Edited 2694d ago )

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

Dee_912694d ago

i would buy a ps turd nugget for atleast $5k just because of the name

trancefreak2694d ago

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...

jimmywolf2694d ago

if that true then they mit call it ps next or some other random name too show it the evolve PS

schlanz2694d ago

death would make it sound cool to gamers..?

Bereaver2694d ago

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.

n4gisatroll2694d ago


That's so makes them, look insane for thinking the number 4 is bad luck.

oneDMAC2694d ago

How does it make them look insane? How is it any different from a lot of buildings in America not having a 13th floor?

Echo3072694d ago


You know what else looks dumb?

Randomly inserting commas where they don't belong.

rjdofu2694d ago (Edited 2694d ago )

@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.

sazzrah2693d ago

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.

the_best_player2694d ago (Edited 2694d ago )

Wii on U :)

Anyway don't give the site hits

"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."

xabmol2694d ago

The better keep it "PlayStation #"

I want my PS9 damn it!

iWishTifaWasReal2694d ago

why 9?

i actually want Playstation 30.

Thanks for harkening back to that landmark PS2 advertisement. Nice call.

duplissi2694d ago

haha, i remember that ad... i had a friend that tried to tell me he had the ps9... lol

DeeZee2694d ago

They didn't go with PSP2 because it sounds too much like PS2.

eldeladi2694d ago

You Don't know Jack Tretton

showtimefolks2694d ago

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

jerethdagryphon2694d ago

ps quattro would be acceptable bypassing 4 in japan without breaking the chain

ForROME2694d ago

I want the PS4 to come out when I get bored of my PS3 and feel like it's last gen...So not now

colonel1792694d ago

Hopefully the social experience in the PS4 won't take away the advancement in tech and power that it should/must/need to have.

Kon2694d ago

LOL this isn't news!
