    I've always pronounced it 'loo-min-ez', but someone I was talking to the other day pronounced it 'loo-mines'...

    It's Loo-min-uss apparently. I saw a video of the creater Tetsuya Mizuguchi talking about the game and that's how he pronounced it.

    I saw a video on a gaming website at the US launch and they pronounced it like scoo said.

    Like scoo, i believe the creator intended it as Luminous - http://www.answers.com/luminous&r=67

    But i've always called it "loo-mins", although i think people will know what you're talking about either way.

    If you've watched the 'podcast' from http://www.psphacking101.com/ and heard an American pronounce it Loo-mins, I assure you - you'll change the way you say it :lesson:
