Sony Says PS4 Neo Will Not Be Announced at E3 2016
If you were waiting for the more powerful PS4 to be a drop, you are going to be disappointed. Andrew House, President and Global Chief Executive of Sony Interactive Entertainment, confirmed that PS4 Neo will not be revealed at E3 2016 in a couple of days.
House, though refused to comment on its price or release date, stated that it will not be unveiled at Sony’s conference at E3 2016 which you can read here. “We want to ensure we have a full range of the best experiences on the new system that we can showcase in their entirety. 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,” he said.
“Starting in October, every PS4 game is required to ship with both a ‘Base Mode’ which will run on the currently available PS4 and a ‘Neo Mode’ for use on the new console,” a source says.
What this means is that we will no longer be subject to games which were below 1080p on the PS4 such as Star Wars Battlefront and Watch Dogs and many others that either suffer from lower resolutions or very unstable framerates. All games on the PS4K would be at least full HD 1080p.
While House did not state how much the PS4 Neo will be sold for, he did hint that the “high-end PS4” would be more expensive than the current $350 version. Right now, the PS4 costs Rs. 32,990 here on GameXS.in.
“It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4,” he said. “We will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle.”
House claims it will target hardcore games and those looking for a 4K TV looking for more high-resolution content.
