The number four:
The number four is considered inauspicious because it is pronounced the same as the word for death (shi). Therefore, one should not make presents that consist of four pieces, etc. In some hotels and hospitals the room number four is skipped.
I think will we start hearin specs and stuff next year for a 2014 release.
I thought death in Japanese is Shini. Thanks for that new info.
I told my wife that the PS4 might be renamed to SonyStation instead this time after they renamed PSN to SEN.
So put both your theory and mine together and we might get our first SS.
