The PlayStation 4 Neo, or PlayStation 4K, has been rumored to be in development by Sony for quite a while now, but House’s statement confirms the new console upgrade by Sony.
The SIE president also revealed that the “high-end PS4” will cost more than the current version which retails at $350.
“It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4,” said House. “We will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle.” House also commented that the new console, codenamed “Neo,” will target hardcore gamers as well as consumers with a 4K television set looking for more high-resolution content.
CEO Andrew House mentioned that Sony would not be unveiling its new console next week at E3. No comments on its release date or price was mentioned, but software support for PlayStation 4K expected to start this fall, so we might hear about a release for it sometime around then.
“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 said on the matter.
“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.”
