Sony has been hinting at an upgraded version of the PS4 for a while now and people were hoping to catch a glimpse at next weeks E3 expo but it looks like everyone is going to be left waiting a little bit longer. Sony has confirmed they are working on the "newer" PS4 with faster performance and 4K support but the launch date is still up in the air, possibly waiting for Microsoft to show off their upgraded Xbox One first. Either way, E3 should be an interesting week for console announcements and we'll make sure to get them posted as they come out. The Verge has more details on the PS3 "Neo".
Sony chief executive Andrew House has confirmed the existence of the company's PlayStation 4 "Neo" console. In an interview with the Financial Times, House confirms the upgraded PS4 will include a faster processor, 4K resolution support, and improved graphics. "It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4," says House. "We will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle."
Sony is not planning to unveil its upgraded console next week at E3, and no pricing will be announced just yet. House says the upgraded console will be priced higher than the current $350 for the existing PlayStation 4 model. All games will continue to support the standard PS4 and House anticipates that "all or a very large majority of games will also support the high-end PS4."
