Waddaya think they should call the new Playstation console?

The GB guys seems to think the weak sauce and flaccid "Playstation 4" is the way to do. I think that is lame. I think they should go nuts with it.

PLAYSTATION: APOCALYPSE. <------ all caps, natch. :D! No wait! Better yet:

Playstation :D!

They could go classy: Playstation Legacy. But only if the console has brass fittings and wood paneling.

PlayStation 4. No need to mess with something a large amount of the consumer population understands. It's simple, definitive and not as synonymous with a previous console name like the WiiU.

I stand by my assertion that Microsoft should call their's the Microsoft Entertainment System.

Ahm. I truly hope Microsoft gets back to selling the Xbox ∞ back in Japan. But I think even Japan has more hate for the Microsoft name, than Xbox. Xbox is sort of a J. Allard thing, a box of "X" in it, not a juggernaut trying to invade their country.

Didn't we have this thread already?

In any case i say PlayStation 4. It's simple and to the point. Like an iPhone 5 or Windows 8.

Or PlayStation The Fourth or PlayStation Revengeance.
