PS4 Neo to be launched September 7

The Sony PS4 Slim is soon going to be released but, since the Game Developer Conference in 2016 the PS4 Neo has been heavily rumored. Now, it is official that the Neo is going to be released on September 7. The differences between the PS4 and PS4 Slim are slim, but the PS4 Neo appears to be a beefed-up version. It is going to be unveiled on September 7.

While this is exciting news for gamers, one has to bear in mind that the Xbox One S has also been a huge success with videos upscaled to 4K.

PS4 Neo vs Xbox One S

If there is one thing we know about the PS4 Neo, it is that it will surely be capable of 4K gaming experience. This essentially means that games will be rendered in 2160p. 60fps is also pretty likely. Xbox One S on the other hand only upscales the videos for better effects. The Horizon Dynamic Range though, is a biggie. The contrast levels and viewing depth can be adjusted.
The 4K U-HD is an attractive point and the new gaming discs can be used. Better experience, again.

The PS4 is also said to pack this feature.

The other talking point about the One S is the performance, while it does do a little better than its predecessor, generally, it lets down because an upgrade should be significant, and not just some tweaks. It is smaller and thinner, sure. But, gamers need more.
The PS4 is also a bummer when it comes to performance. Several users have reported about heating issues during long usage. Gamers like to sit for hours over weekends and enjoy their marathons, and in that case, it is a total let down. Hopefully, the Neo will not have the same issue. It will require a lot of cooling inside. Especially the kind of powerful machine the company promises.

Reportedly the PS4 Neo will have backward compatibility. This means that the PS4 games will be supported in it. Major advantage. Xbox S has it too. It saves the users the extra cost of buying new games, which usually cost a bomb!
Although usually, the price is never an issue with gamers, the Neo is expected to be on the slightly higher side especially given the added specs. Although it is difficult to pick a clear winner before the launch, it never hurts to pick a favorite. I say Neo.

  1. You can’t compare xbox s and ps neo… the only comparison is xbox Scorpio and ps neo. Jackass.
    Might as well compare a Nintendo 64 to a ps3

    • Scorpio is in the project stage at the moment. Might take a while to release. The launch of PS4 Neo is imminent. Good one on the Nintendo and PS comparison 😛

  2. I’m a bit confused where you get your information from. “The Neo will be launched September 7th. Now it’s official.” According to whom, who is this source you are reffering to? I agree there is “supposed” to be the big reveal of what the Neo looks like and how it preforms, tomorrow on the 7th. That is what all the rumors say, but as far as a release date as much as I am hoping to purchase it asap, there are no credible or official sources anywhere stating any specific launch date for the Neo. Also you state that “one thing we about the Neo is that it will certainly be capable of 4k gaming” Really? You know that for a fact? I find that a bit hard to believe since I had to purchase a high end pc for VR and to run games in 4k (which btw is 3840 x 2160 not just 2160 that you stated), and it can only do it well thanks to the very recently released nvidea gtx 1070 graphic card thats installed. Which has 8gb of video. The Neo’s specs as of last known weren’t even in the ballpark for that kind of horsepower. 4k gaming is highly unlikely with the Neo. You should be able to watch 4k movies and streaming with it but not gaming. Until this very recent generation of graphic cards 4k gaming needed top of the line pc’s. Unless Sony reveals some new breakthru in technology that could take the cutting edge power of a $1,300 pc and put it in their new console, it ain’t happining.
