We all heard the stories, “Sony are working on a a more powerful PlayStation 4”, but now the company have finally appeared to confirm it.
Andrew House, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, told the Financial Times that the “high-end” version of the PS4 would be more expensive than the current $350 model. House added that it was designed to “sit alongside and complement” the standard version of the PS4 as they aim to sell both versions during their life cycle.
The console – rumoured to be named “Neo” – has been designed for hardcore gamers. It will support 4K for high end TV sets and is expected to run smoother when VR arrives
While many speculated that this would mean double the work for developers – making the same game for two separate consoles – House has stated that upcoming games will all work on PS4 while all, if not, the majority of games will support the newer console.
Sony has stated that the new console will not be making an appearance at E3 this week as they look to refine and finalise its features.
