Japan's unlucky number is 4

Just saying maybe Sony should not name it Playstation 4 in Japan.

Alot of people their maybe not want something that has the number 4 in it.

I survived the Apocalyps3 and the Collaps3 and all I got was this lousy signature.

Actually, he's right. It's like 13, only more widespread. They might just name it Orbis.

Metal Gear!?
#7qwertyMrJINXPosted 2/16/2013 12:00:45 PM
Yeah, that's why Japanese companies never numbered their games "4", like Metal Gear Solid 4, Final Fantasy IV, Ryu Ga Gotoku 4. That'd just be insane.

it's not as bad in japan since they change the 4 = shii, to 4 = yon, it's more a problem for asia and china

Honestly, I wouldn't mind buying something called the "PlayStation Death".

Maybe add the word "Machine" to it and then you would get the "PlayStation Death Machine".

Or am I alone in this?

they never referred the ps2 as playstation ni or the ps3 as playstation san. they're not going to call the ps4, playstation shi. they go with the english pronounciation.
