We now have prior to now heard affirmation that the Sony PS4 Neo might be arriving in a while, however new leaked main points recommend there can be some other PS4 console refresh within the works which might release round the similar time. The additional-slim variant of the PS4 used to be noticed on Gumtree by way of a consumer in Machester, UK; the record used to be since got rid of, however a consumer on Twitter, @shortman82 claims to have bought the thinner console and posted a photograph of it along the 2013 PS4.
The Wall Street Journal additionally stories that the narrow PS4 will probably be bought along the PS4 Neo. Sony showed the much-rumoured PS4 Neo in June 2016, revealing the options as together with 4K strengthen, progressed graphics high quality, and Ps VR optimisation for the company's personal headset launching on October 13. The VR headset might be suitable with all PS4 fashions, however the additional tweaking aboard the Neo is meant to support the revel in significantly. Sony's release tournament for the Neo is September 7, so if we're taking a look at dual-launch that will be the date to observe. Naturally, Sony has remained quiet with regards to those new leaks.
There aren't any different main points at the present on what the brand new slimline PS4 may well be referred to as, or what options it would have except for a extra svelte bodyshell. We will be able to handiest speculate at this level, however we might danger a bet that it's purely a cosemetic trade, as spec and have tweaks run the danger of stealing the limelight from the PS4 Neo, which seems to be the primary contender right here.
Regardless, it stays a curious phenomenon that each Sony and Microsoft are issuing those "midway space" console reboots with a small handful of improve options. That stated, authentic next-gen console cycles have traditionally been between six and 7 years, that means the following true successor would not be with us till 2019 on the very earliest.
