The conspicuous absence of the PlayStation 4 Neo at E3 2016 led us to believe it would be released sometime in 2017 at the latest. However, a new report claims it could launch before the end of 2016.
Citing several sources, Digital Foundry
says the upgraded PlayStation 4 “launches this year, despite its E3 no-show.”
The report goes into detail about whether the 4K focus is the right direction for both the Neo and Scorpio, but shares nothing else about the console.
Sony Interactive Entertainment president Andrew House has confirmed the existence of the Neo, but let everyone down by not mentioning anything about it at E3 2016, let alone show it.
If Digital Foundry’s report is true, that would mean Microsoft’s Scorpio would launch a year later than the Neo, giving the latter a long head start to win gamers over.
Needless to say, it will be interesting to see how the development community and players react. Would you get the Neo or Scorpio if you had to choose one?
