SRN Editorial: Hey MSNBC, quit making bullish*t store about the PS4 being called the Orbis and presenting them as fact.
LOL! Here we go.
This whole article is crap. How many in the media called Kinect Natal before it was released? And who is to say that they do not stick with the Orbis name? The whole "Orbis" and "Vita" being a reference to "circle of life" hints that they might indeed stick with that name. It works for them, and I see nothing wrong with it.
wasn't natal the ms codename for kinect? orbis could be the codename for the ps4. like revolution was the codename for the wii, and wasn't dolphin the codename for the gamecube? or is that just the emulator?
Good chance it's a codename. Vita had the codename of "NGP" http://ngp.scedev.net/ <-- Vita http://orbis.scedev.net/ <--PS4
Natal was the code name for kinect... Also why do people care what it's called? As long as its not a stupid name it's still gonna be a PS4....
"quit making bullish*t store" The bullshit store? Do they have locations in the central mall? I'd love to browse their selection.
it's an online store
I think there's one in the mall called GAP.
You know if they ship to the UK?
We all get annoyed by journalism but we don't have a tantrum over it, well, not all of us anyway.
ummm actually the real reason why its not going to be called Playstation 4 is because of Japanese superstitions with the number 4. Its like in western culture how we are superstitious about the number 13 and how there is no 13th floor in buildings.
seriously??? about the 13 floors part, I was aware about the no. 4 in japan. But a whole floor??? thats hilarious.
there is a 13th floor it's just called the 14th. of course we don't bother with that kind of thing in the uk.
I live on a 13rd floor, lol. Sony may call next console 'if-you-bought-me-then-you -are-gay' I will still buy it, and kick some asses, on a god of war 5 ;)
I thought they got around that by actually using the arabic number 4, just as it is, rather than the japanese equivalent. They did use 4 for many video game sequels already...
If he's gonna start going after sites for running with rumors and acting like its fact, he's gonna have a long list of sites to go after here on N4G.
It's just a code-name dude...chill.
