    Sorry for the derail, clears up the "pound sign" though....


    So why does No. stand for number and not Nu.? Never mind....

    No. is an alternative form of №, which is an abbreviation using the first and last letters of "numero," a form of the Latin (and other Romance languages) word for "number." One such number is 4, which will be the next iteration of the PlayStation, a video game system I vaguely remember reading something about.

    Rumour has it it won't be PlayStation 4 but something else, as they did with Vita. So it may actually be PlayStation Orbis and that's not just the code name for it.

    A good effort, but Sony's going to have to work harder than that if it wants to take the Most Ridiculous Console Name title away from the Wii and Wii U.

    The Xbox specs were leaked ages ago but no one believed them until it was confirmed by patents that showed up for it.

    I think Sony recently announced behind the scenes and that was leaked from there.

    Are you sure you're not a potato programmer? It is an easy mistake to make.

    The HDMI input in the MS specs is intriguing.

    This kind of masturbation over hypothetical system specs is really tedious. :lol: There's so much speculation about what "might" be possible with these systems, sight unseen. The fact is, nobody's going to know how these systems will work, or stack up against each other, until we see some real ones in action.

    Desktop PC manufacturers may be happy to see the upgrade curve pushed again, though. ;)

    Yeah, a built-in Kinect is pretty much a given.

    There's paranoia over it always watching and whether it will be used beyond simple gaming interactivity.

    This assumes Microsoft is stupid enough to provoke such Orwellian paranoia by having it be true.

    Which means they will do it! :lol:
