Please, stop calling it those stupid names and call it the PS4 until it is revealed to be otherwise.


It won't be called the PS4. That is a well known fact. 4 is shi or death in Japanese. They don't use the number for anything.

I already have a Wii U. It is awesome, but I wanna play my Sony games.

I may just go with the PS3 now. That way, I can pick up an Orbis/Omni when all the bugs have been worked out.


Why do people keep saying this?

Devil May Cry 4
Metal Gear Solid 4
Disgaea 4
Persona 4
Final Fantasy IV
Dragon Warrior/Quest IV
Breath of Fire IV

a small list of games among many other games from Japan that use the number 4...they use the number 4, just like the West uses the number 13 in many things as well despite is bad luck status

they will call it the PS4 or they may not, but if it ends up not being called the PS4, it will be for some other reason and not some silly superstition reason of avoiding the number 4, which im sure some see it like that over there, just like how some see the unlucky number 13 thing here as a silly superstition as well

What is there to not understand? It will be announced at E3 in June for a release in fall (probably November) if next year. This is pretty much a given.

The Wii U is awesome. Looking forward to adding the Durango and Orbis to my collection in a year or so. All three companies are awesome.

Yeah they will change the name so they don't have to give us any backwards compatibility, they will say its a new machine altogether and not associated with the playstation family. lol

Orbis is the codename. Omni is the rumored final name (and the one I prefer. Lol)

They have used 4 on Playstation games in the past so I am sure it will be called the PS4.

Why would you wait for the PS4? You can pick from a ton of good games on the cheap for PS3 now.
