For some time we have heard about a new console from Sony, reportedly called the PlayStation Neo.
Today, it has been confirmed that those reports are true, however, it will not be called the PlayStation Neo, that’s just its codename, instead we presume that it will simply be called the PlayStation 4K.
That said, in its reveal, Sony’s boss only referred to it as a “high-end PS4” with support for 4K content.
As of yet, there’s no news on when it might launch, or for how much it will be priced at, but in an interview with the Financial Times, PlayStation’s boss Andrew House revealed that the PS4K will be released as a complement to the PS4, with software support for it set for release this autumn.
So it could be a possibility that the PS4K will also be released along that time, however, Sony has revealed that they won’t be revealing more at E3, so we will just have to wait on that news.
“We want to ensure we have a full range of the best experiences on the new system that we can showcase in their entirety,” House revealed.
“It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4, we will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle.”
House said in the interview that all games from the PS4K will support the standard PS4, however, to develop a PS4K game, developers will need to do a “small but manageable” amount of work.
“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.”
When we learn more about the PS4K we will let you know.
