The PlayStation Neo has been confirmed by Sony’s president
Sony Interactive Entertainment’s President and Global Chief Executive Andrew House during an interview with the Financial Times has confirmed that Sony is working on a “High-end PS4”. The new PlayStation is codenamed Neo and is expected to run 4k resolution and be more powerful than the current model on the market.
House also shot down rumors that the new PlayStation will appear at E3 next week, saying, “We want to ensure we have a full range of the best experiences on the new system that we can showcase in their entirety”. He also did not say when to expect a reveal or what the price of the PlayStation Neo will be.
He did mention that the system will be more expensive than the original PlayStation 4 and that the Neo is meant to compliment the original, not replace it. House went on to elaborate “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”.
Despite House’s comments, never say never when it comes to E3, Sony may reveal the PlayStation Neo after all, but don’t get your hopes too high. Sony’s press briefing will take place on Monday June 13 at 6pm PST.
