If you are still tottering on the edge on whether to pick up an Xbox One or Sony PS4 console after all of these years, perhaps it might be prudent to wait for just a few more weeks. After all, you have done your thorough research on the different kinds of game titles and genres that are available on both platforms, and yet remain undecided. Why wait? September 7 might prove to be the day when the “tipping point” occurs, as a PlayStation Meeting hosted by Sony is where the Japanese giant is expected to reveal their new PlayStation Neo, or PS4 Neo.
The PlayStation Neo or PS4 Neo is touted to be a slightly revamped piece of hardware, being more powerful than the existing PlayStation 4, while being fully compatible with its fair share of gaming titles to date. We will know more on September 7 at the PlayStation Meeting event in New York, but so far all rumors concerning the PS4 Neo have been building up in such a direction.
The PS4 Neo is the upgraded PlayStation 4’s internal codename, and just in case you were wondering whether this has anything to do with the science fiction franchise The Matrix, you are spot on. If you could remember, Sony's Virtual Reality (VR) project was given the codename "Morpheus", and we do wonder whether there will be a “Trinity” or “Smith” project some time down the road, perhaps targeting on the PSP family.
The PS4 Neo or PlayStation Neo have also been referred to as the "PlayStation 4.5” by developers since it occupies a place that is neither here nor there, but we are pretty glad that more of the console should be revealed when September 7 rolls around.
In fact, the PS4 Neo should be fleshed out in due time, since right before E3 kicked off this year, the folks over at Sony have already confirmed that there is an upcoming PS4 model which will be upgraded in terms of hardware, where it was "intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4" as reported by the Financial Times, all without sacrificing on game compatibility. However, Sony remained mum on the various technical upgrades that should arrive with the PS4 Neo, although common sense would dictate that it ought to arrive with a souped up processor, a better GPU, and one will always be able to do with additional RAM.
