All I know is that they better call it PlayStation4 because 4 is a cool number. After that, they can call it w/e they want until PS9 lol


I have a feeling that it will not be called PlayStation 4. I'd be fine if it was, but going past 3 with numbers seems silly to some people. It will probably get some side name, like the PlayStation Vita. I'll still call it it PS4 anyway.

Could someone possibly sneak into the Sony meeting?
WAIT.
That's what Gizmodo might try
WAIT. They'd try to steal the Playstation 4 and claim someone let them borrow it.

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FourIsDeath

"In Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, the words for "four" and "death", despite being written differently, are pronounced similarly (somewhat like "sė" in Mandarin, "sei" in Cantonese, "shi" in Japanese, and "sa" in Korean). As a cultural trope, Asian works of media tend to treat the number the same way Western writers treat the number 13."

Not good at all.

But this offers some hope.

"...some Japanese people prefer to say "yon" (another word for four) instead of "shi". "

A clever way out would be to give the PS4 a Japanese name that's a homophone of yon, as death is a homophone of four.

That would solve the problem in Japan, anyway. Some quick checking around the next shows that yon for four is strictly Japanese. So any cleverness would not reach China and Korea.

Maybe there's some other word that can be co-opted that will still reach the largest possible language groups.
