Has the name "PlayStation 4" been confirmed yet?

Wouldn't see why they wouldn't, but I could see them changing it up.

The number 4 is usually considered bad luck in many Asian countries including Japan.

It is why it may not be a likely name to be used.

It wouldn't be surprising to be simply called Playstation or add something to the name much like they did with Playstation Vita.

Well the only other possibility is Playstation Orbis.
Because of some random latin meaning with Vita and Orbis= full circle/life.

Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!

It's bad luck. But Sixty Deaths is fine.

Perhaps. But considering many Japanese companies skip the number 4 in many of their product lines, it wouldn't be too surprising. Panasonic just did this with their TV enumeration.

Again, we are all looking at tea leaves here.

Japan is afraid of 4?

No wonder they lost in 44.
