4 is a racist, misogynistic, bigoted, rude, and utterly destructive word in the Japanese language.

Like how we avoid 13 in everything; they avoid 4 in everything.

What? What in the world gave you that idea?

4 is only bad because its synonymous with death, it has nothing to do with race, bigotry or anything of that nature.

Anything with 4 in it is considered bad luck and therefore avoided.

True, although buildings still have 4F (China and somewhere in Europe has the 13th floor of buildings cut out due to the unlucky number) in Japan.

Sony would be dumb to cater to silly Japanese superstitions and not call it PS4. Their investors would probably be pissed too. Consumers don't give a s*** about their culture's ridiculous beliefs.

I've been in a Chinese owned building in Canada. Any floor with the number 4 was gone, and the 13th floor was also axed.

Yeah, Chinese people had some sort of floor cut off in China and it was literally like "4F,5F,6F,7F,9F" or something. In Japan we have the 4th floor, the number 4 on it`s own with something is bad, but related to something, yonkai also known as the 4F doesn't sound like Shi which can also mean death.

Uhh you got it wrong. 4F would be cut out, the 8F would be included. 8 is good luck and they would definitely want that floor there.

I probably got it wrong for China, as it was an example, but I 100% didn't get it wrong for Japan.
