Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Andrew House told Financial Times that a high-end PS4 is in the works. The upgraded version of the company’s successful console, with 40+ million units sold of the original PS4, will offer ultra-high-definition 4K resolution (aka 4K UHD or Ultra HD).
This upgrade marks the first time in videogame console history that a company releases a much-improved version of a game system during its lifetime.
Rumors about the upgraded PS4 nicknamed PS4 Neo surfaced on Kotaku after talking to developers about creating games for an improved version of the PS4.
It has also been said that Microsoft is working on a much more powerful Xbox One console.
Unfortunately, fans attending E3 won’t be able to check out the PS4 Neo. House told FT that not only will the high-end PS4 will cost more than the original PS4 being sold at $350, but that Neo won’t be shown at E3 2016.
House addressed the probable issue of interoperability between the original and the improved PS4 consoles. “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,” House said.
