PLAYSTATION 4.5 ANNOUNCEMENT REPORTEDLY COMING BEFORE LAUNCH OF PSVR
We could be hearing something official about the so-called PlayStation 4.5 or PlayStation 4K before October.
According to The Wall Street Journal, sources familiar with the matter say the new console will “be announced before the planned October release of the PlayStation VR.” So far, Sony has declined to comment on all rumors.
The WSJ’s source also reports that, despite the higher-powered hardware, “it is likely that the current model and the coming one would share the same software catalog.”
It is rumored that the console will feature an upgraded GPU, and possibly a better CPU that will improve power and also turn PlayStation VR into a more high-end experience. It’s also possible that the name is referring to the ability to output native 4K resolution video. Keep an eye on IGN’s rumor page for all the updates.
