PS4 Neo Is Not The Beginning Of Regular Incremental Console Upgrades, Says Sony’s Andrew House

I can respect this decision.

The PlayStation 4 Neo represents a mid cycle upgrade of the kind that the PC, mobile, tablet, or handheld market may be very familiar with, but which is more or less unprecedented for the console market. And yet, its existence does not mean that Sony are looking towards moving to frequent iterative upgrades for their consoles every few years, Sony’s Andrew House said at the Investor Day meeting in Tokyo.

The console is being introduced this time because there is potential to deliver the latest and greatest technology to the customers in the middle of a cycle without causing a generational transition- but Sony still intend on maintaining a one console world, House said, and there is no plan to just have endless incremental upgrades.

Which sounds fine- even if the eventual future of console gaming is to have endless upgrades, the way things stand now, it would be akin to shock therapy to switch to that model. Gently breaking into it, the way Sony and Microsoft are attempting to do, is probably the best way to go about things.

    Can’t wait for that awkward moment when they have to explain to +35 million PS4 owners that they have to buy a PS4 Neo to get the best out of PSVR.

    People don’t get the message yet? Why would they release a more powerful PS4 if they’re not planing on frequent hardware updates in the future?

    • Well considering that they run all the demos for PSVR on PS4s your wrong about PS4 not being powerful enough but I do think the PSVR games will quickly out grow what the PS4 can handle which is why I think they’re getting the PS Neo ready to go.
