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


13 is a number considered lucky or bad depending on the culture. It can ironically explain FFXIII both ways in terms of how it was received.

*That means lucky*

Really? that kinda sounds like how a japanese would say the word "lucky" tbh....


Yes. Like "Pro Wrestle" is Puroresu.

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.


And look how those titles turned out to be.

They should call it PS4 and destroy traditional superstition.

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 should lean into it. Intimidate the competition.
