The PlayStation 4 Neo is a upgraded version of the PS4 that is heavily rumored to be releasing this Fall or sometime early next year, but the reason for Sony making the platform? It is to help developers have stronger hardware to play around with but it seems a major reason for the platforms development is to keep current players from moving on to PC platforms.
“We did think there was an opportunity to reflect on the traditional lifecycle, and on 4K technology, and say maybe there’s an opportunity, within the course of a normal lifecycle to offer something else, something a little bit better, for a segment of the market that feels that this is important,” explained House to The Guardian.
He adds: “We’ve traditionally seen that some of the core audience tends to gravitate back to high-end PCs at some point because these are the people who want the finest graphical performance.
“So here’s a great opportunity to have them stay within our ecosystem.”
