[Eurogamer] Sony Confirms Playstation 4K

Sony has confirmed the long-reported existence of PlayStation 4K.

Referred to simply as a "high-end PS4" with support for 4K content, there's no word yet on when the machine might launch, or how much it will cost.

Software support for PS4K will begin this autumn, suggesting a release then. And it may be that Sony wants to avoid damaging current PS4 sales by saving the 4K's announcement until the hardware is ready to roll-out.

"We want to ensure we have a full range of the best experiences on the new system that we can showcase in their entirety," House said on the matter.

As expected, the PS4K will be more expensive than the current PS4, House said, but it is not a replacement.

"It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4," he continued. "We will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle."

If there is no E3 announcement then the console won't come out this year.

sorry iARDAs frown.gif

Probably like Xbox Scorpio Fall 2017.


A couple of months ago I thought the end of 2016 was going to be amazing.

But now : Everything is 2017.

Mass Effect Andromeda
Zelda Wii U / NX
Nintendo NX console
PS4K NEO (probably)
Xbox One Two (probably)
Persona 5
Horizon Zero Dawn


let's see what they delay next. There is not much left that hasn't been delayed already lol biggrin.gif

Yeah that killed my Hype really. I mean software support comes in September but if a new console was to be released in September, the announcement 99% had to be in this E3... Unless there is another important gaming related event in summer?

Tokyo Game Show is this year, but it's Q4 I think.

That would be too late for 2016 release frown.gif

Man I wanna ditch my old PS4 and get a new one. Sony hurry up !

The hardware is not cheap enough for a $400 console, RX 480 MSRP is now $200, bulk cost in trays is probably $150, Sony is probably waiting for it to drop to the $100 range in a year.

Neither console has any upcoming exclusives that excite me , defiantly can't wait to see the new Xbox and Playstion tho , but what has me the most hype and better be gameplay trailers for at is E3 is mass effect!

My gaming PC collects dust with my friends borrowed 660ti in my computer as I await new worthy graphics cards and good games to justify the purchase , 2016 has been a pretty crap year for both Games and PC tech so far!

There are a couple of goods ones. I didn't even list all. That's only on top of my head

Maybe you just have a very specific taste

"It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4," he continued. "We will be selling both [versions] through the life cycle."

This is still really unclear. Is he talking about on store shelves or in our homes? Is it a PS4 add-on? It apparently has it's own CPU, GPU, and RAM, so it doesn't seem like an add-on from that perspective, but then the quote makes it sound like an add-on.
