A little over a week ago, we caught wind of a report that Sony is making a more powerful version of PlayStation 4 capable of displaying at 4K resolution. This report was later corroborated by a second source, and now the Wall Street Journal has stepped forward as a third source. According to “people familiar with the matter,” PlayStation 4K (or whatever its name ends up being) is real, and it’s designed “to handle higher-end gaming experiences, including virtual reality.”
It’s expected (by the Wall Street Journal’s sources) that the new and old models will share the same library, but PlayStation 4K will “be able to handle ultra-high-definition resolution graphics” while offering more power for running PlayStation VR. The sources go on to say that Sony intends to announce PlayStation 4K before the October release of PlayStation VR. Sony has, predictably, declined to comment on any of these reports at this time.
