Sony will hold the PlayStation Meeting on September 7 at the PlayStation Theater in New York City. Gamers expect the special live event will launch the new PlayStation Neo console. It’s only open to members of the press, but PlayStation has also invited fans to watch it live.
During the PlayStation Meeting, Sony usually launches new hardware. This year the company is expected to reveal the already leaked PlayStation 4 Slim. Sony has launched slim versions of its consoles since the release of the PSone, a slimmer redesign of the original PlayStation.
Meanwhile, it’s still unknown if Sony will do the same with the PlayStation Neo, aka PlayStation 4.5 or PlayStation 4K. The hardware revision of the PlayStation 4, codenamed Neo, was confirmed by Sony to be under development back in June.
The Neo announcement is very likely as Sony and PlayStation have been eager to allow players to watch the PlayStation Meeting. Neo it’s a higher-end model meant to support 4K gameplay. The Neo will roll out alongside the PS4, and all existing software will be compatible between them.
Therefore, players will have the same PS4 experience, but with higher resolution. PlayStation doesn’t want gamers to miss the probable unveiling and have asked them to join the event online tomorrow. Following the meeting, there will be a special episode of PlayStation LiveCast as well.
