"Looks more like an "educated guesses" article to me."

4 sounds like death? hmm... interesting


Makes me glad I bought a new slim. Guess my mate could be right about the no BC.

Yeah the Japanese (and I think some other parts in Asia) believe the number 4 is associated with death or so I hear. 

We'll probably see it being called Playstatiojn "Something" in Japan and PS4 everywhere else but to prevent confusion they'll just probably call it something else totally for all regions.

I read it somewhere else before like in Japan they have no doors with the number 4 o.o.

Vita sounds like life and that didnt turn out too happy for them...the came to the dark side



This looks incredibly fishy to me.

My 3DS Friend code is 0877-1237-2177 ...ADD ME! :D

This is just a compilation of rumoured details and educated guesses. I call bullshit.

no used games-online pass-protection system

and

Games need to be registered to PlayStation Network account

 

So no Online Passes but complete devaluation of a registered game towards any potential second hand buyer.

 

Edit: Also, concerning the 4 means death thing. I was born on 4/14/1984



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

lol didn't know that but I know about the number 13. they don't have that number in the elevators. you just skip it its like that floor of the building is in another dimension and you can only enter it by opening a portal which leads to a one floor building in the 13th which floats in the sky because all other numbers in that dimension are cursed numbers
