Sony’s E3 conference doesn’t kick off until Monday night, but ahead of that the company has confirmed that reports of the long-rumored ‘PS4 Neo’.
Sony Interactive Entertainment president and global CEO Andrew House says the new system will feature ultra-high definition 4K resolution and richer graphics, and is “intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4… we will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle.”
The system will be more expensive than the regular PS4 system which is currently priced at $350. PlayStation 4 games will be compatible between regular and PS4 Neo units, and House says consumers will be fine with the choice of hardware:
“The consumer is attuned to a different cadence of innovation in technology thanks in great part for the upgrades cadence on mobile phones or PCs. We want to ensure we have a full range of the best experiences on the new system that we can showcase in their entirety.”
No pricing or release window was given, and the console won’t be revealed at E3 where the showcase will be more on the game titles coming up.
