PS4 NEO Will launch By This Year’s End, Reports State

In spite of it being a no show at E3 this year.

The PS4 NEO was, sadly, a complete no show at E3 this year. Much like Nintendo had done with the NX, however, Sony had already stated that they would not be showcasing the new console before E3 had even begun- prompting speculation that the new, revised PS4 would not be due to launch this year after all, and would instead be launching some time next year, joining the NX and the Xbox One Scorpio.

However, now, Digital Foundry, who has been among the most prominent of sources leaking information on the NEO, is reporting that in spite of its absence at E3, the new console is set to launch by the end of this year, according to multiple reports that they have gotten.

If this is true, then the question is: when? The PlayStation VR launches in October, and that’s one major hardware launch that Sony will be focusing on. That leaves just two months for the NEO to launch, and not a whole lot of time to announce it beforehand, unless Sony intend to pull a Sega and launch it right as soon as it is announced.

I don’t know how convinced I am on this front, then- but hey, it’s entirely possible that as far as Sony are concerned, the NEO isn’t that much more important than the launch of a PS4 Slim, in which case a shorter announcement to release cycle would make some sense for them.
