Is this real or bullshit?
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]Sony is currently planning a new version of the PS4 with increased graphical power and games running at 4K resolution, developer sources tell Kotaku.
We don’t know whether current PS4 owners will be able to upgrade or if they’ll have to buy an entirely new device to benefit from this power boost, but from what we hear, Sony has started briefing developers.
Based on conversations with developers who have spoken with Sony, this ‘PS4.5’ will include an upgraded GPU both to support high-end 4K resolution for games and add more processing power that can enhance the games supported by PlayStation VR, the headset Sony will launch this fall.
It’s unclear if ‘PS4.5’ is an official name or just a nickname that developers have been using.
One developer jokingly called it the ‘PS4K’ while telling me about the device.
