PlayStation CEO, Andrew House ‘surprised’ by Xbox’s Project Scorpio announcement

PS4 Neo won't be shown until there's enough content to warrant a reveal

Sony has been a bit dodgy on official details for the PlayStation 4 Neo/4.5 (whatever you want to call it) outside of an official confirmation of its existence. Clearly, the company isn't ready to show off what they have in the next PlayStation 4, and it seems as though they are somewhat surprised that Microsoft is. In an interview with The Guardian, PlayStation boss, Andrew House expressed surprise about Microsoft' E3 announcement regarding Project Scorpio.

He said:

“The point of confirming the existence of PlayStation 4 Neo and the bare bones of the plan last week was about not disappointing the fan base who would obviously come to E3 with high expectations of all kinds of announcements…And from past experience, the worst thing you can do is disappoint and pull the rug away from people. That’s why we went out last week and said, yes, it does exist but don’t expect to see it at E3. I think it was the right thing to do.”

His perspective is certainly an understandable one. First impressions are everything, especially in the realm of the internet. One bad showing can permanently damage the narrative for a product, that can sometimes be irreparable. 

4K resolution is going be a hot topic going forward with VR on the horizon, we just hope that both Sony and Microsoft has what it takes to keep up with the latest in resolution technology.
