Sony Interactive Entertainment chief Andrew House confirmed his company is working is working on a new PlayStation 4 console. Rumors about this console have been going around for several months now, it's codenamed "Neo" and will offer 4K resolution and richer graphics.
House told FT that the new high-end PS4 will end up more expensive than the current $350 version, but specifics about the pricing or a launch date weren't revealed. Console gamers will also be disappointed to hear that Sony will not be unveiling its new console at next week's E3 show.
[...] Mr House said that Sony would not be unveiling its new console next week and refused to say when or at what price the unit would go on sale. “We want to ensure we have a full range of the best experiences on the new system that we can showcase in their entirety,” he said.
Concerns about interoperability were downplayed and House also confirmed that both the old and the new PS4 will be sold alongside.
Nonetheless, he downplayed concerns that the move would cause interoperability problems between the old and new PS4 hardware.
“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.
