The new console will offer improved graphics and support for 4K resolution, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Andrew House told the Financial Times, according to a Gamespot article Friday. The new model will also support Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray discs, Sony said.
Rumors that a more powerful version of the PS4 was in works began to circulate in March. Sony said the new PS4 will also cost more than the current PS4, which starts at $350. The company declined to give a price or release date at this time. The current PS4 will continue to be sold.
You'll be able to play any existing PS4 games on the new system. And although Sony won't unveil the new machine at E3, the company will discuss software lineups there.
