Sony to Officially Reveal PlayStation Neo

After a lengthy string of rumours and anticipatory predictions, Sony has now confirmed that the PlayStation 4K will be revealed on September 7.

The high-performance console will be shown in New York, during a special event beginning at 3PM EDT. That’s 8PM in the UK.

As reported by Eurogamer, it’s not technically affirmed that the PS4K will be what’s shown. In a press invitation titled ‘PlayStation Meeting’, the company merely states that “details about the PlayStation Business” are on the way. That said, given the lack of confirmation by Sony regarding the new console, it’s really quite likely we’ll be seeing more of the dubbed ‘PlayStation Neo’.

Word surrounding a more powerful PlayStation has been circulating for a while now. In addition to 4K resolution, the high-performance system will boast upgraded CPU, GPU and RAM – potentially making room to fully support Sony’s VR. According to recent reports, every PS4 game will be required to carry two modes: one to support the original PS4, and graphical upgrade to run on the new console. According to GiantBomb, it’ll be priced at $400 (£278).

Sony have also stated that the PS4K will be sold alongside the original PS4. In an interview with Financial Times confirming the Neo’s existence, Sony Interactive president Andrew House explained that the system “is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4,”  and the company “will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle.”

Whilst these reports have been supported by several sources, it must be noted that these stories are potentially subject to change, until the Neo is officially unveiled by Sony on September 7.

Meanwhile, Sony’s PlayStation VR is slated for release on October 13 2016, for £350.
