Unfortunately, it isn’t any sort of ‘PS5’ like you were perhaps hoping for. Rather, the ‘PS4K’, or ‘PlayStation Neo’, will be dropping, hosting a faster processor, improved graphics and be able to support all of your crispy 4k content.
Sony chief executive Andrew House commented that this new device “Is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4”. They “Will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle.”
As of yet we don’t know too many details on the console, however, we are sure that the grand unveiling won’t be at the upcoming E3 event in Las Angeles. It has been confirmed that the ‘PS4K’ will be fully backward compatible, natively support VR and even play 4k UHD Blu-ray discs.
Exciting, but how badly will this supplementary device hurt your wallet?
The price tag won’t be too tragic, with reports estimating the ‘Neo’ will set you back just a bit north of $350 USD.
This new console is for the “high-end PS4” market and designed to “suit all gamers”, according to House. Here at Digital Fox we are not yet convinced. Maybe we’ll buy it just to add to our ever growing, 20 plus year collection. What about you guys?
