If you’ve been wanting to buy a Playstation 4 game console for quite some time now and you’re convinced in getting it soon, I suggest you hold off for now.
That is because Sony, at least according to recent reports, will be unveiling two of their Playstation 4 variants in an upcoming event.
On September 7, Sony will be hosting an event and someone that is “close to the matter” has divulged information about two new upcoming Playstation 4 game consoles.
Back in the E3 2016 event, Sony made it clear that they are currently working on an incremental upgrade of the current Playstation 4, which has a codename of “Neo”.
The Playstation 4 Neo will have slightly improved specs and it is a game console that is geared towards Virtual Reality gaming.
The other rumored Playstation 4 game console will be the PS4 Slim. This will have a slimmer form factor and the company might have gotten some inspiration from their rival company, Microsoft.
The aforementioned gaming company revealed the Xbox One S, which is a slimmer version of the Xbox One but with beefier specs that can even support 4K resolution displays.
Playstation Slim game consoles are not new. In fact, their previous game consoles also had a slim version as well.
The Playstation 4 Slim is rumored to have the same specs to that of the original Playstation 4 but its price will be marked down.
Furthermore, the slimmer Playstation 4 might also have a convenient stand to allow you to put the game console in a vertical orientation.
Since there are rumors that they will unveil these two upcoming game consoles on September 7, what will actually happen on the said date?
Well, according to reports, Sony is going to be holding a “Playstation Meeting”. It is still unknown at the time of writing this article what Sony intends to do in that event (well, aside from rumors that they are going to unveil new Playstation 4 variants).
In my speculation, I think Sony will talk more about Virtual Reality gaming as the company intends to release the Sony Virtual Reality Gaming gear this October.
I think that the recent rumors about the unveiling of two new game consoles are true. That is because there were recently leaked images that show a slimmer version of the Playstation 4.
Furthermore, the slimmer version of the Playstation 4 looks legitimate and it sports a square appearance as opposed to the rectangular design of the original Playstation 4.
Also, the Playstation Neo has an unspecified release date. Although they did mention that they are going to release it soon, a lot of people speculate that the gaming company will release it sometime next year. Probably, it will be released nearly in the same release window to that of Nintendo’s upcoming game console, the Nintendo NX.
It still remains to be seen what Sony intends to do in its upcoming Playstation Meeting on September 7. What do you think will the gaming company do? Are you excited about the possibility of the Playstation 4 Neo and Playstation 4 Slim reveal?
