Earlier today we reported that PS4 NEO was developed because the original PlayStation 4 system was ‘truly awful’ and was simply incapable to support VR to its full potential. Well, that reported has been debunked by two reliable Sony insiders at Neogaf. Insider Matt simply stated that such a situation will “never” happen while adding that “PSVR is fine on the regular PS4. Obviously things look better on Neo, but considering the performance requirements, the actual experience is largely the same.”
Meanwhile Demonite’s response was simply amusing. Both Demonite and Matt are credible insiders (many have assumed Demonite to be a Sony employee at Neogaf) so they may be right once again. But as usual, take this report with a grain of salt until we get official confirmation from Sony.
But what are your thoughts on this? Do you think NEO was developed primarily because the base model was weak to support VR? Let us know in the comments section below.
