Sony is just a few days away from the unveiling of its next-gen video game console that has captivated the imagination of gamers and nongamers alike throughout the years. Now, the announcement is officially given out by Sony to make way for the device's grand unveiling on September 7.
The official announcement will happen in New York City, where the PlayStation 4 Slim, together with the higher-end PlayStation 4 Neo, will be unveiled. Speculations are high that Sony's plans to not develop a new video game console unit and stick on to improving the latest one are primarily based on the fact that VR headsets are the trend today.
The soon-to-be-released PlayStation 4 Neo is expected to have an Ultra HD 4K resolution, leading some to call it as the "PlayStation 4K". Sony has also given out invitations to a selected group of media personnel to attend the September 7 event.
The event is called the "PlayStation Meeting" and is assumed by the many to focus on the release of the all new PlayStation 4 Neo. Based on the statements of TechCrunch, Sony is still keen on giving out specific details, only saying that it the meeting will "share details about the PlayStation business".
One of the other reasons behind the expected release of the PlayStation 4 Neo on September 7 is because of the upcoming markdown in price of the Sony PlayStation VR on October.
Specs of the PlayStation 4 Neo
Major improvements are focused on the graphical processing unit (GPU) of the PlayStation 4.
According to Eurogamer, "the 7970's Tahiti processor is the obvious example, offering up a 60 per cent increase in computing power. This could be combined with an overclock, faster RAM - and possibly more of it (though we suspect that cost issues may be a concern here)."
Price of the PlayStation 4 Neo
Based on the article published by Giant Bomb, the PlayStation 4 Neo will start at a price of $399. However, this is still subject to change as Sony might instead offer a 1TB variant.
