PS4K will still arrive this year, says report

PS4K is still on track to release this year, according to a new report.

Digital Foundry, wrote an article about the system and the new Xbox One Scorpio and at the end cites that it's been told the PS4K will still arrive this year.

"Several sources have indicated to me that PlayStation Neo launches this year, despite its E3 no-show."

It's being suggested that PS4K will be similar to Scorpio in that it'll support Ultra HD Blu-Ray, 4K streaming and HDR. However, Scorpio will apparently boast a 40 per cent performance advantage over PS4K.

PS4K is also said to allow gamers to continue to play their library of games, should they decide to upgrade.

Of course, until PS4K is actually announced and details, anything we do know is purely speculation and of course this is also subject to change. We'd imagine if Sony could up the specs before release in order to get a little bit closer to Scorpio then it'd do just that.

So what do you think? Will we see PS4K this year?

I'll be annoyed if Sony wait until we all drop £350+ on VR and then tell us about the new console. The concerning thing is that I think they stayed quiet about Neo at E3 to avoid damaging pre-order sales of VR units. Most people will not buy both..

Yeah. It'll be interesting to see when it is announced/released. I'm guessing a November/December release if it is coming this year. I can see it coming March next year tho or maybe releasing around the same time as Horizon.

To be honest both consoles will have the same specifications with maybe ps4 having better memory

If they are telling the truth and all games were running on the original then there are videos on YouTube of the vr at e3 and they seem to run perfectly with the original hardware, it will prob use the extra power for higher resolutions. Remember it has a box with processing power in it to help control and operate the vr headset

@paulaw - the console isn't going anywhere. We know it's coming so it coming this year or next won't make a difference. They were smart, 1 hardware at a time. MS announcing both made some people confused - buy now for 4k player but same performance or wait too next year for 'possibly' better performance with 4k gaming. That will possibly damage the S's sales a bit. I'm just getting the 4k and skipping vr until it's been out a while with reviews and games.

I'm like most others. I don't have a 4K tv & have no plan on getting one really., not for gaming anyway as I don't want the input lag. What I want to know is will I get a better performance as standard across the board on all games without needing a specific patch?

@lukas - from what has been said by Sony - all games from Oct onwards Must have a neo and normal mode with neo a min of 1080/60. existing games don't need to be patched but can be. I would imagine pre-patched they will be the same as will be running in normal mode. a bit like the wii u, more powerful than the wii, but when in wii mode its almost identical to the wii for the games. I recon only the major titles will get update patches as some devs may see it pointless to go patch a game that is no longer 'relevant'

Sony must be desperate they realise they cant do a more pwerful sysytem than MS so they go for early release will probably be a broken mess.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
