After all the latest rumors surrounding Sony’s all-new PlayStation 4 Neo console, Sony has confirmed the rumors to be true to the Financial Times.
Sony Interactive Entertainment president Andrew House has referred to the new system as a ‘high-end PS4’, which will support games and movies at 4K resolution along with enhanced gameplay visuals.
In the words of Andrew House, “It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4 – We will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle.”
Expecting the new system the be profitable at launch, House mentioned that Sony has hopes of “all or a very large majority of games” to be optimized for the new PS4, with all games maintaining compatibility across both consoles (PS4/PS4 Neo). This update of course supports the new ‘high end PS4’ launching with a more enhanced CPU, GPU and RAM.
Though Sony has confirmed that the ‘high end PS4’ is in the works, no price point or launch window has been hinted at. Fans expecting Sony to reveal the new system at this years E3 2016 might be disappointed as Sony want to “ensure we have a full range of the best experiences on the new system that we can showcase in their entirety“.
Just how much more powerful will the ‘high end PS4’ be in comparison the standard PS4 is still unknown. With no official name yet given to the system, Sony might have more confirming information during Gamescom 2016 or later this year during what has become Sony’s annual PlayStation Experience event.
