Sony has confirmed that it’s working on a PlayStation 4.5

This generation of consoles has been very disappointing, and the PlayStation 4 is no exception. Sony might be enjoying record sales at the moment, but the fact that developers are already feeling the limitations of the console’s hardware, as well as the fact that it doesn’t support emerging technologies like 4K resolution and virtual reality, means that it won’t be long before the PlayStation 4 is seen as outdated. For a few weeks, there have been rumors that Sony is looking to combat this by releasing an improved version of the console in the near future, which was confirmed by PlayStation chief Andrew House in an interview with the Financial Times on Friday. 

Sony has finally acknowledged that it is indeed building a more powerful version of the PlayStation 4, as Kotaku first reported in March. PlayStation chief Andrew House told the Financial Times that the codenamed Neo is “intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4″ and that “”We will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle.” The console will not be shown at E3. The FT report confirms that the system will support 4K resolutions but was otherwise devoid of specs. House predicted that “[a]ll games will support the standard PS4 and we anticipate all or a very large majority of games will also support the high-end PS4.” No examples were given of the kind of performance boosts gamers who upgrade to the new unit can expect. House also told the paper that both the PS4 and the 4.5/Neo will support the upcoming PlayStation VR headset. It’s still unknown when Sony plans to start selling the more advanced unit. House did tell the FT that it will cost more than the current PS4, but it was unclear if that means it’ll retail for more than $350, the PS4’s current price, or if it will simply be more expensive than whatever the PS4 costs when the new unit is launched. It’s still unknown when Sony plans to start selling the more advanced unit.
