Sony Confirms PlayStation Neo is Real, Will not Be at E3

After many reports, and leaks, the PlayStation 4 existence of a new PlayStation 4 model has been confirmed, and it will not be at E3 this year.

The report was confirmed by Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Andrew House in an interview with the Financial Times. Although no name or more concrete details were announced, he did outline that the new PlayStation 4 would co-exist with current models.

“It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4,” he said in a statement to the Financial Times. “We will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle.”

House also outlines that going forward that all games would support existing PlayStation 4 systems, and most will support the new more enhanced feature-set of the more robust system. On the development side, he says there should be a “seamless” transition to working on the new platform with “small but manageable” amount of extra work needed to take advantage of the new system.

As for the acceptance of a mid-system upgrade? House points to mobile phone industry as an example of how people accept new technologies as they evolve.

“The consumer is attuned to a different cadence of innovation in technology thanks in great part for the upgrades cadence on mobile phones or PCs,”

No pricing or details on system specs where revealed in the interview, although he did reiterate that PlayStation VR would work on both systems.
