Sony confirm new PlayStation console

Sony confirm new PlayStation console
10 June 2016

Well, the rumours are now fact - Sony have confirmed that they're bringing out an upgraded, more powerful version of the Playstation 4 console.

Andrew House, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, said that this amped-up version of the PS4 is going to be more expensive than the current console, and that it has been designed to "sit alongside and complement" the standard PlayStation.

"We will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle," added House; "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."

As suspected, the new PS4 will support 4K TV sets, and it'll support Sony's virtual reality technology too.

However, this new console will not be making its debut at the E3 event. Sony still have some testing they want to do, and won't be releasing it until they're happy everything is correct and in good order.

With that, there's no release date.

With GameStop blurting out that there's a new console imminent, that leaves the window open for Nintendo to release their rumoured NX console, or indeed, Microsoft the chance to show off the new, slimline Xbox.

Looks like another busy year for gamers!
