Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Andrew House recently told The Financial Times that the PS4 Neo, the long-rumored more powerful version of the PS4, is officially in the works. However, contrary to all the rumors out there, the upgraded system won’t make its debut at this year’s E3 Expo.
House confirmed a few details about the proposed system, including the fact that it won’t replace the current PS4: “It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4. We will be selling both through the life cycle.” The CEO also reassured current PS4 owners that, as of right now, games won’t be designed exclusively for the PS4 Neo, though it will support 4K displays: “All games will support the standard PS4 and we anticipate all or a very large majority of games will also support the high-end PS4.”
While we know it exists, it might be a while before we see the PS4 Neo on store shelves. House said Sony wants to have a wide range of titles available to showcase the Neo’s abilities before they show it to the public. That means we also have no idea how much it’ll cost, but my guess is it’ll be pricey.
