Sony Confirms PS4K - but It Won

Sony boss Andrew House has confirmed the existence of the more powerful PS4 model capable of UltraHD and richer graphics, codenamed 'Neo', in an interview with the Financial Times; however, the new console will not be seen at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.

House, president and global chief executive of Sony Interactive Entertainment, stated that the new model will not replace the current PS4 console. "It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4," added House. "We will be selling both [versions] 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."

When pushed for an indication on when the new console would see the light of day he said it would be released once "we have a full range of the best experiences on the new system that we can showcase in their entirety".

So the PlayStation NEO rumors came out.

Then it was rumored that Microsoft was upping their timeline to respond and was going to show off upgraded Xbox hardware at E3.

Now NEO isn't going to be at E3.

Now what will Microsoft do?

I bet you a bag of peanuts they're all waiting to see more of what Nintendo is doing with NX, and since THAT won't be at E3, they're in no rush. Who knows, Nintendo might have something good with their NX that's worth copying, though Nintendo is rarely any threat to them. But if they do have something worth incorporating in their new hardware and they do it after having already unveiled what they planned... it'll look like they're just copying, whereas if they just wait, they can just say that they'd been planning to do it all along (See Sony with their Sixaxis controller only sent to developers ten days before E3, 8 months after Nintendo announced their motion sensing technology, and Sony claiming that this had been in development for a long while... my ass Smilie).
