Playstation 4.5 Is Reportedly Real

An upgraded Playstation 4 console is seemingly on the way. 

In a report from Kotaku last week, it was suggested that multiple developers had confirmed a new Playstation 4 model, often referred to as the “Playstation 4.5” or “Playstation 4K,” with an upgraded GPU to support 4K resolution and more processing power to benefit Playstation VR. Today, Digital Foundry (via Eurogamer) has further confirmed this rumor, detailing three possible outcomes as to what this could be, and why:

  1. A system with increased processing power (as suggested before)
  2. A system with 4K resolution-supported features (as also suggested before)
  3. A slim PS4 model with some performance upgrades

For more details on each possible option, be sure to check out Digital Foundry’s article. We also chatted about the possibility of a Playstation 4.5 on the latest episode of SonyCentric, so give that a listen to hear our thoughts.
