With E3 only days away, rumours and speculation has lead us all to believe that a new PlayStation Neo and Xbox One ‘Scorpio’ will be unveiled by both Sony and Microsoft. While fans are not too eager on splashing out so soon for new hardware, the consoles could do with a boost in performance, but sad news is abound.
It seems that we won’t get a look in on the new PlayStation Neo console next week, as previously speculated. While Sony hadn’t officially confirmed the console, we had seen specifications and sources confirming its existence. Those expecting 4K gaming were delusional, but Andrew House has announced its existence, but says it won’t be at E3.
“It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4,” House told the Financial Times. “We will be selling both through the life cycle…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.”
The reason for why it won’t be revealed is because there aren’t enough titles available for the machine that will show off its necessity, or its selling point. “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 added.
Other rumours suggested that the Neo would be required in order to use the PlayStation VR, but if we’re seeing the VR in action at E3, perhaps this quashes that rumour?
Whether Microsoft will continue to reveal the rumoured Slim model and next year’s powerhouse of ‘Scorio’ at E3 is unknown, but we shall see.
