PS4 gets bizarre ‘Hadouken Cabs’ viral teaser, watch it here

Friday, 8th November 2013 09:52 GMT By Dave Cook

Sony appears to have sent us a bizarre email regarding a new taxi company called ‘Hadouken Cabs.’ It contains a video that is full of PlayStation 4 references. Could a big reveal of some kind be on the way? Watch it here.

The email reads, “Don’t just call a cab! Call Hadouken Cabs! Hadouken Cabs. Knocking the competition out since 1987.”

It also comes with the PS4 hastag #4theplayers.

We were completely puzzled by this trailer to start with. I thought it was spam until I started to notice little easter eggs in the clip.

Note the cab’s license plate:

There’s also a URL seen here:

It leads you to the Hadouken Cabs website where you can speak with an operator. Listen to it. It’s hilarious.

Then there’s a subliminal blip of the PS4 DualShock 4 controller:

Finally, here’s the PS4 face buttons:

What does it all mean? Let us know if you spot anything else.

Meanwhile, here’s the Killzone: Shadow Fall PS4 trophy list.

    Gotta be Street Fighter. The movie was released in 1994 as was Super Street Fighter II Turbo. Plus all of those references are Street Fighter.

    Streetfighter – first release in 1987 = cabs phone number
    Also Destruction Derby possibly as it was released 1995 (nearest to the number plate PS1994)and it gets mentioned in the splats on screen.

    Could it be cab for cabins of arcade? A new arcade of SF using ps4? Something like

    A few things

    1. License plate reads PS1994, 1994 is the release of the PS1.

    2. The phone number 0830-1987- KO is the release date of the original Street Fighter, August 30th 1987.

    3. Websites message; go listen.

    4. Could the car have something to do with the bonus car destruction levels that were conspicuously absent from the original SSFIV release? (As in their poking fun at that)

    What does it all mean?

    You guys tell me.

    TAXI has 4 letters. 4 like the PS ’4′, also PS4 has 4 face buttons, 4 like the word TAXI.

    The persons thumb in the picture of the phone looks ready to dial the number ’6′. What is the sixth letter of the alphabet? ‘F’… The word ‘Four’ also stars with ‘F’ : PS ‘FOUR’… FOUR / FORE sound the same when pronounced.

    The man standing by the TAXI has a short sleeve t-shirt on, leaving what uncovered? His bare ‘SKIN’…

    Put all the clues together…:

    PS FORESKIN Confirmed.

    That was fantastic. I find it hard to believe it would be Street Fighter Five with all the 4 references. I find it more likely that SF4 will be a PS+ game for the PS4. I would love to be wrong or right on this one.

    Anytime I hear Hadoken and Taxi together I think MVC2′s theme song Take you for a ride. Could it be a PS4 announcement of UMVC3(or4) on ps4?

    Actually a SF/Crazy Taxi hybrid would be all kinds of cool.. you pick your SF character and have to drive people around crazy taxi style but at any point you can also jump out and battle opponent taxi drivers then smash up their car after KO’ing them.

    But it’ll probably just be SF4. :(
