Rumors have been circulating for the past couple weeks about a new version of the Playstation 4 coming out, and with all the leaked details surrounding the rumor its hard not to assume that it will eventually be announced by Sony in the upcoming months.

But what does this new version have against the existing Playstation 4? According to multiple developer sources who say they’ve been given the new console to develop for, it will be able to display games in 4K resolution. This could be potentially huge for consoles as it could bridge the gap between PC and console gaming. Reports also said the console would include an upgraded GPU to improve VR capabilities.

(Details if you can make any sense of them)

One of the major concerns people had when this information released last month was the current Playstation 4 becoming outdated. If developers started making games exclusively for the new system, players would have to buy an upgraded version of a console they already own just to play them. While Sony has released iterations of their consoles in the past, the extra features on newer consoles were limited to more memory or faster load times rather than higher graphical capabilities. Some felt like it was too soon for a new version of the PS4 as it has been less than 3 years since it first released.

However, new reports have come out today that seem to address some of these issues. According to more developer sources, any company making Playstation 4K games must also make those games work on the current Playstation 4. They also cannot separate Playstation 4k and Playstation 4 users online, which means 4K users are able to play in the same online matches as 4 users.

Considering how an issue with the Playstation 4K has been resolved without anything being officially announced yet, I wouldn’t be surprised if Sony was testing the waters with leaked information so they could anticipate any backlash they would receive when revealing the new console. It seems like Sony’s continued strategy of listening to what the fans want is paying off for them.
